Classical Guitars

Katoh Classical Guitars

I have just these two Katoh Classical guitars left, as shown below. These are brand new.Simply amazing guitars for the price.

Katoh Flamenco 1A Guitar

Katoh Flamenco 1A Guitar Katoh Flamenco 1A Guitar

This guitar is brand new, in perfect condition. It is handmade from the Katoh Milestones Luthier Center

Spruce top. Cypress back and sides.

Where to start with this guitar. By far and away the nicest flamenco I have ever played, but then I'm a classical player and have not delved into flamenco guitars a great deal. It has an absolutely beautiful sound, and it is so satisfying to play.

Comes in an hard shell lightweight case.

Normally retails for $3495, this one $1400.

Katoh Alex/CS Classical Guitar

Katoh Alex/CS Classical Guitar Katoh Alex/CS Classical Guitar

This guitar is brand new, but a second. It has a very small scratch on the back. I have been unable to photograph this. It is very small and only noticable if looking very carefully.

Custom 19th century style guitar, Solid Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides and neck, rosewood fingerboard, "moustache" bridge, wood rosette, flamed maple headstock veneer, deluxe gold plated machine heads, traditional gloss finish.

This guitar does not come in a case, and is still packed in it's original cardboard box.

Interesting instrument. It does not have the big sound, and especially the bottom end response of a modern size classical, but it has a subtle transparency that is very easy and pleasant to listen to. Could be a very good instrument for recording.

Normally retails for $995, this one $650.

ELECTRIC GUITARS


I can also provide repairs to guitars, particularly electricals, such as pickup replacement, rewiring (eg changing between active to passive), etc. Email or phone to see if I can help.

Cort Source Electric Guitar

Cort Source Electric Guitar Cort Source Electric Guitar

Brand new in perfect condition. Cort version of the ES335. Set-Neck construction, Maple Top Back & Sides, 42mm (1.65") nut width, maple top, Canadian Maple C Shape neck with Ivory Binding, Rosewood fingerboard 305mm (12") radius, 22 Medium Sized Nickel frets, 24.75" scale length, Dot inlays, Vintage tuners, T.O.M Bridge & Stop Tailpiece, ClassicRocker-II Pickups (Alnico II), 2 Volume, 2 Tone, 3way switch, Nickel hardware, Semi Hollow Double Cutaway Body - 2 6/9” body depth. Comes in a soft gig bag.

I have compared this to an original Gibson, and there are differences. The Cort is lighter. This means it is not balanced as nicely when standing up and playing. The cort has a tendency to start to rotate downwards with the weight of the neck bringing it down. This is only just noticeable, when you take you hands and arms off it. The pickups sound pretty similar, but the Gibson seemed to have a slightly higher output. They both play pretty much the same, and thats comparing the Cort straight out of the box from the factory with my friends nicely set up original.

If weight is an issue, and less is better, then the Cort is a good option. If you don't mind a bit extra weight so that the guitar sits nicely when standing, and you have the extra $3k plus, well, there are some gents at the local music shop eagerly awaiting your custom.

Retails for $899, this one for $550.

Cort G260DX Electric Guitar

Cort G260DX Electric Guitar Cort G260DX Electric Guitar

Brand new, but was used as a show sample at the importers warehouse. In perfect condition. This is penultimate top of the G series models, just under the custom model. Swamp ash body, bolt on maple neck, maple fingerboard, abalone inlays, Duncan designed pickups, white pearl pickguard, staggered self locking machine heads, Wilkinson VS5011 bridge, chrome hardware, and the standard strat electronics wih 5 way switch. Comes in a tweed hard case, which is no longer available, and used to sell for around $180.

This is the sort of thing that Cort do very well, and is as good as it gets for the price range.

Normally retails for $700 (without a case), this one with the case, for $500.

Acoustic Steel String Guitars

Oakridge Resonator Guitar

Oakridge Resonator Guitar Oakridge Resonator Guitar

This is a project inspired by the National "Hotplate" modification, in which the supply a replacement cover for their resonator guitars, that is fitted with a magnetic pickup with volume and tone controls. Had to try it on this one. It works perfectly. The pickup I used here is a single coil Duncan Designed pickup that I had on hand. This modification requires no changes to the actual guitar. No holes cut in. In order to change it back to it's original state just fit a new cover, which is easily purchased. This is a brand new Oakridge DB-2 resonator. It's by no means a great resonator, but it's not terrible, well, not REALLY terrible. Works great with a pichup though. This model did come with a pickup fitted to the body, which was further towards the neck. The position of this one is a bit more towards midway between bridge and neck, so has a bit more bite.

Oh, and did I mention that the National Hotplate costs over $600 (American)?

The version of this guitar that came with a pickup retailed for $600. This Price: $500.

Please note this guitar does not come in a case. It comes in it's original cardboard box.

Oakridge Resonator Guitar



Mayson M10/SCE2 Semi Acoustic Guitar

Mayson Guitar Mayson Guitar

Brand new, in perfect condition. Mayson Marquis shape, solid Engelmann spruce top,mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard with MOP dots, ebony bridge, transparent pickguard, nickel 372-AS machine heads, bone saddle and nut, double action truss rod, 645mm scale length, 495mm body length, 395mm body width, 112mm body depth, 45mm top nut width, LR Baggs Anthem electronics, GM-40 deluxe gigbag.

According to the catalogue for these guitars it is supposed to have a cocobolo back and sides. This guitar looks to me like it has mahogany back and sides. It definitely does not look like cocobolo.

This guitar is simply supurb. Acoustically its pretty good, but this pick up system is the best I have ever tried. Absolutely stunning.

This guitar normally retails for $2195. This Price: $1300.



Cort Custom Shop Semi Acoustic Guitar

Cort Custom Shop Semi Acoustic Guitar Cort Custom Shop Semi Acoustic Guitar

This has been my own guitar for some years, but never really play it so it's time to move it on. Has probably been played for around 1 hour in it's life. I purchased this guitar as a second. It has a small split in the side, on the back where the output socket is located, as shown in the photo, as well as a repair to a small split in the neck near the nut. This latter repair will have been done at the factory when it was made. The actual repair is a bit rough, but the finish over it is supurb. I know this would have been done at the factory because this guitar I purchased direct from the importers of Cort at the time, and they never bothered repairing these sort of things. This issues are very stable, and have never changed in the years I have had it. I have tried to photograph it in such a way as to make the split as onbvious as possible. Not quite that obvious in the flesh.

I have just got it back from a complete checkup. The volume of the strings through an amplifier was not uniform. It turned out that the bottom of the saddle slot was not exactly flat anymore. Sashar Amos from Sashar Amos Guitars has rectified this, and done a complete setup and checkup. It now plays supurbly.

It comes in it's original Custom case.

Supurb sounding guitar. From the original Custom Shop in Korea.

Price: $1500. These were around $3000 when available.
