Guild CV-2 Acoustic Guitar

Guild CV-2 Acoustic Guitar

This jewel of a Guild CV-2 Acoustic Guitar comes with a “help a brother out” story behind it. She’s basically brand new, just a few months old. Her owner works offshore and the industry is a little slow so he’s selling things to keep his bank account healthy. He doesn’t say much about her other than that she is in perfect condition. Her label shows she was made in Tacoma, Washington. Feeling seller’s plight, I did some…

Washburn D25S/N Acoustic Guitar

Washburn D25S/N Acoustic Guitar

I know it sounds strange but some guitars, such as this Washburn D25S/N Acoustic Guitar, speak to my heart when I run across them. Call it guitar intuition or whatever, I just get a sense of an axe. This Washburn, for instance, tells me she’s a player, loves to be played and has been. Look at the swirls on her pick guard. That’s honest player wear. Seller says she’s in very good to excellent condition and…

Prestige Eclipse Acoustic Guitar

Prestige Eclipse Acoustic Guitar

Hot damn! Is this Prestige Eclipse Acoustic Guitar not one of the best things you’ve seen all day? She comes from Canada with solid AAA Koa top, back and sides (plus Adi braces in a X pattern designed by master luthier Balaz Prohaszka) and a satin finished D-shaped Mahogany neck. I love all her little thoughtful features—such as her beveled cutaway (inlaid with Padauk wood), Ebony fingerboard and mother of pearl “Eclipse” fretboard inlays. Oh, and…

Fender Vince Ray VooDoo Acoustic Guitar

Fender Vince Ray VooDoo Acoustic Guitar

Look what just brightened up my day, a Fender Vince Ray VooDoo Acoustic Guitar from China. Seller writes she’s in excellent condition (a few pick scratches, no biggie) and sounds great. Her Fishman preamp and pickup work like a dream. Of course, the real star of the show is her amazing Vince Ray graphics. (You can check out more about Vince here.) Put it this way. You walk into a gig with her, you set expectations…

Breedlove Pursuit Acoustic Guitar

Breedlove Pursuit Acoustic Guitar

Every once an a while I see a guitar for sale and think “Hmm, what’s the story here?” This Breedlove Pursuit Acoustic Guitar definitely set my mental gears a spinning because it’s a beautiful guitar yet it’s barely been played and now it’s for sale. Seller offers no clues for his change of heart but it doesn’t really matter. What does matter is finding this beauty a good home. (She comes with a gig bag so…

Gibson Custom Shop L-00 Acoustic Guitar

Gibson Custom Shop L-00 Acoustic Guitar

There’s damn!, hot damn! and then there’s this American made, 2015 Gibson Custom Shop L-00 Acoustic Guitar.

Beneath that beauty comes even more: Adirondack Spruce top, and Mahogany back, sides and classic V-shaped neck with a bound 12″ radius Rosewood fretboard. She even rocks the traditional scalloped X-bracing, Mother of Pearl inlays, vintage-style Gibson…

Blueridge BR-142 Acoustic Guitar

Blueridge BR-142 Acoustic Guitar

You ever wonder what makes the Blue Ridge Mountains blue? Turns out it’s the trees that live there. They naturally release isoprene gas into the atmosphere and the haze from a distance looks blue. You know what doesn’t look blue? This perky 12-fret 000 Blueridge BR-142 Acoustic Guitar, part of the company’s Historic Series. She’s as sunny as they come. To my mind, Blueridge is an underrated brand. They pack a lot of wallop for a…

Peavey Composer Acoustic Guitar

Peavey Composer Acoustic Guitar

Sometimes you just need an axe to pick up and noodle with and that’s exactly the purpose of this brand new parlor-sized Peavey Composer Acoustic Guitar. I’m a big fan of parlor guitars. Because they’re on the smaller side they just are easier to grab and go without thinking much about it. If you’re a songwriter and the muse hits, that’s a big advantage—especially since your digital recorder is capturing your session, right? Though this guitar is small,…

Luna Fauna Dragonfly Acoustic Guitar

Luna Fauna Dragonfly Acoustic Guitar

Luna was the Roman’s divine personification of the moon. And this Luna Fauna Dragonfly Acoustic Guitar is a pretty divine personification of a full July moon in summer out on the bayou. Aside from her stunning inlaid dragonfly rosette, she rocks a “Select Spruce” top (probably laminate), Maple back and sides, Mahogany neck and Rosewood fingerboard. Seller doesn’t say when (looks recent) or where (I looked but didn’t find any clues) she was made, so if…

Carvin AE 185 Acoustic Guitar

Carvin AE 185 Acoustic Guitar

Nothing like a AAAA quilted Maple top to start the day off right. And this American-made heavily upgraded acoustic-electric Carvin AE 185 Acoustic Guitar certainly is proof of that. Just soak her semi-hollow goodness in for a minute. Once you get past her top, check her matching headstock, nice body binding, deep gloss finish, abalone block inlays and gold hardware. She even rocks a Mahogany body and neck and black Ebony fingerboard which plays off nicely against her Maple….
