- The 1924 Gibson Loar-signed F-5 is in excellent original condition and has a great even and rich voice that is the realization of Lloyd Loar’s intention for these instruments to be played in a classical music setting. Please see the Mandolin page for complete text and photo set.
- We currently have 9 Gibson Mastertone banjos in Style 5, Granada, Bella Voce, and Style 18 models that are in very clean to near mint original condition. Some have been converted to 5 string configuration. Please see the Banjo page for more full descriptions and photo sets for each instrument.
- We currently have two 1945 D-28s, one 1945 OOO-28, and a 1946 D-18 all with tapered brace voicing and Adirondack spruce tops. Come on in to audition and compare them to see what the buzz is all about. They are described with photos on the “Vintage Martin Dreadnought” or “Vintage Martin Other size” pages.
