To purchase an instrument please e-mail ( or call (717.917.3738 or 717.393.5393) to arrange payment and shipping.

Our reputation is everything. We want our word and work to be ‘gold standard’. We recognize that buying a guitar is a very personal choice, and we strive to provide a uniquely detailed and accurate description of each instrument we sell.

To help a buyer make an informed decision, we feature youtube videos and mp3 recordings for many of our guitars. We may be contacted for any comments, questions or an ‘in hand’ description of an instrument. Call any time from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm EST.

Buyer Approval Period:

We offer a twenty-four hour ‘test drive’ on all instruments..if not as described, return the instrument in the same condition and same careful packing for full refund, minus shipping costs.

How to Pay:

Cash, checks, money orders or bank wire. We do not accept credit cards. We will wait for a personal check to clear the bank before shipment. We accept PayPal, however, fees are paid by the buyer, which amount to about 2.9% domestic, and 3.9% international. International buyers, we will not intentionally undervalue a guitar to lower import fees.


We ship world-wide. Shipping method and payment is the responsibility of the buyer, and we require full value insurance for each instrument shipped. We recommend the United States Postal Service (USPS) and United Parcel Service (UPS). On high value instruments, a buyer may consider ‘next day’ shipment to reduce the amount of handling an instrument will receive.

Handling and Packing:

We do not charge a fee for handling or packing. Additionally, we take great care packing a guitar for shipment, with the full knowledge that successful shipping begins with a well packed guitar inside a case, before it’s placed inside a shipping box.
