  • Fylde Falstaff (New) [Roger Bucknall, Cumbria, UK] Through a fortuitous series of events, we find ourselves with a new Fylde Falstaff to offer, and we're quite pleased to have it in the shop! Roger tells us the Falstaff is closest in size to a dreadnought, but it is designed more for finger picking than for flatpicking. Roger also tells us the Falstaff is the model most popular with his professional players. Folks who are known to use the Falstaff include Martin Carthy (who received the first Falstaff in 1975, and he still has it), Mick Jagger, Peter Tosh, and John Smith.

This guitar allows the player many options for the perfect blues or Hawaiian slack-key sounds. The most common tuning is C - C. We've had a few Sycamore guitars from SCGC over the years, and it's always a favorite. Tonally, it falls somewhere in between Mahogany and Rosewood, giving the volume and dryness of Mahogany along with some of the richness of Rosewood. Love the look of the wood, too. Sycamore paired with Italian Spruce makes for a gorgeous tonal quality. Clear, yet warm. This is definitely a fave. List, when new, was right at $6900. $4500

This guitar is in great shape with just a few minor marks. It's a versatile instrument with balanced tone. Nice! $3295
  3. Model H (1996, Exc+) A throwback for me (Kim), because I used to own a SCGC H in Koa. I think my guitar had a serial number in the 200s, but this one is #434. The H body is pretty much a 14-fret 00 with a balanced sound that's not too bass-heavy. Great small-body guitar. Indian Rosewood back and sides, Sitka Spruce top; Ivoroid binding on the body, fretboard, and peghead; 1-11/16" nut width; bone nut; Mahogany neck; Ebony fretboard with micro dot pearl inlay; Ebony peghead overlay with the SCGC logo in Mother of Pearl; chrome-plated Schaller tuning machines; Ebony modified belly bridge; bone compensated nut; Ebony pins with pearl dot inlay; OM-sized tortoise color pickguard; Highlander Internal Microphone installed; OHSC. $2695

Ebony peghead overlay with pearl SCGC logo; nickel Gotoh tuning machines; Ebony bridge, bone compensated saddle; tortoise color pickguard; OHSC This guitar puts out some seriously sonorous tone! It's very clean overall but for some finish checking on the top around the bridge. Nice! $2500

All original but for the bridge re-glue, which is structurally fine, if not the most attractive work. The body is 8-15/16" wide with a 17" scale; 10 strings in groups of 2, 3, 3, 2. Tuning is generally like that of the ukulele, but with the octaves on the three lowest groups. Specifications are like those of an 18-style guitar. Non-original HSC included. $1495

  3. 000-21 (1948, Exc) Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Spruce top; tortoise grain binding on the body with b-w-b top purfling; tortoise color pickguard (it's lifting a bit, and there's a repaired pickguard crack, as you might expect); herringbone back strip; Mahogany neck; Rosewood fretboard with large, graduated-size pearl dot inlay to the 17th fret; Rosewood peghead overlay with Martin script logo; replacement (Grover Rotomatic) tuners; Rosewood bridge with cut-through saddle; recently repaired top crack (Bill Baldock) that had been stable for years; plays nicely and sounds terrific; non-original HSC $8500
  4. 000-28EC (2003, Exc-) Great sounding guitar. Used to belong to Mudge. Call him for more info. Indian Rosewood back and sides, Sitka Spruce top; 1-3/4" nut width; 24.9 scale; there's some wear and a repair, but wow, does it sound great!

OHSC $895 was $995
  7. D-18 (1943, Refinished) Great sounding '40s D-18 that is quite affordable due to the fact it's been refinished; it's got a replaced bridge, replaced tuners, replaced pickguard, and numerous repaired cracks; the top shows lots of finish crazing too. Mojo, indeed! Non-original HSC (Guild) $8500
  8. D-28 Golden Era Sunburst (Exc++, #436) This guitar is ten years old and has started opening up nicely. It's got lively, crunchy, tone, and we like it a lot.

  5. McGill Tommy Jones Classic (1999, Exc+++) [Paul McGill, Nashville, TN] An usual (and great sounding) older classic guitar from Paul McGill. According to Paul, the back and sides for this guitar are from Central American (possibly Nicaraguan) Rosewood, and the top is made of old-growth German (center) and Cedar (wings); traditional rosette; Ebony nut; slotted peghead with Rosewood overlay; traditional bridge with individual RMC pickups. This is number three of the Tommy Jones models (only three were made) featuring the unusual combination of top woods. If I am remembering correctly, we (Cotten Music) sold the first of the three guitars in this series (although it might have been a prototype--it was Tommy Jones' own guitar) several years ago. The guitar offers beautiful tone throughout, with clarity and good depth. The action is good, as is the overall volume. Can't really tell you what the mark is (it's obvious it's in the wood) on the upper treble side, but it's of no consequence to the sound of the guitar. The guitar comes with a soft-side McGill case. $6500

  12. Gibson Les Paul Custom (1971, Exc-) Best we can tell, this is a 1971, though it could be a 1972.

Our customer bought it used from Hewgley's in 1974, and the previous owner (a lefty) had installed a strap button in the cutaway portion (!); also, at some point, the guitar developed a crack in the back of the peghead, and our customer had it repaired, and it's been stable since.  We're selling it as is with the original parts in the original hardshell case. $2500

  14. Gibson SJ (1949, VG, As Is) Wonderful Southern Jumbo that's just in need of a little TLC, so we've priced it accordingly. Nice that it has the original case, cause that's worth some good money right there! Basically, this guitar got a not-so-good neck reset at some point, and it could definitely benefit from a new one (and some fretwork). Still, it can be played as is, so if you want it, and will just know it needs a neck set, you'll be fine. The guitar had a pickup, which has now been removed, so there's a hole where the end pin (or end pin jack) should be. Nice guitar, that with some work, could be fabulous. Call Mudge for an in-hand description. $4800
