A number of high quality consignment guitars are heading to the shop from every corner of the U.S.A. and beyond. Some recent arrivals have been sold or put on hold before they even make it to the website listing. I am continuing to keep keep a want list for those players that want to get in line for something very specific in very nice playing condition. Please email or call to discuss your particular requirements.
The increased demand for high quality instruments from small shops and solo builders has recently allowed us to feature great instruments from Ed Claxton, Marty Lanham (Nashville Guitar Company), Roy McAlister, Santa Cruz Guitar Company, and another James Olsen. A demo model Stan Miller F-5 mandolin has also just arrived. More instruments from these and other top tier guitar builders will be coming into the shop through the summer.
In time for the outdoor music festival season, we have some great sounding and playing guitars coming soon or recently arrived with repairs or procedures that put them into the affordable “player” category. 1930s D-18s, a 1940 prewar herringbone D-28, 1947 D-28, 1948 D-28, 1950s D-28s, and more. Watch the inventory for arrival dates.
See our companion website www.steveswanstringbass.com for the complete inventory and related material for the bass violins in stock.
Our large and comfortable retail showroom in Burlingame offers a selection of fine vintage instruments as well as selected examples from contemporary builders. The usual hours are 9-5 Monday through Saturday. Please make an appointment to confirm a meeting time.
