Martin D28

Pristine example.   Martin say: The all new D-28 blends the rich history of the guitar with Martin’s newest and most heralded innovations.

Martin has also added forward-shifted bracing to allow greater vibration of the top. The legend just got better!

Epiphone Olympic, USA 1936 with original case, £1500

Epiphone Olympic

Some wear on the top and back but otherwise clean.  From the web: One of Epiphone's most sought-after acoustic archtop models today was at one point among the company's least expensive offerings. We can thank David Rawlings for that. His signature guitar tone for many, many years has been that of his 1935 Olympic, with its sweet and melodic single note presence. His playing on most of the Gillian Welch catalogue brought Rawlings into the spotlight as one of this generation's most important guitar slingers, and his weapon of choice was always, until recently, his '35 Olympic.

Sigma DR-14, Japan 1970's, with hard case  £650

Sigma DR-14

A very rare guitar, made in Japan.  Good condition with fret wear on lower frets.   Wiki says:  Sigma produced numerous "DR-*" models from the mid-70s on through 1984: DR-8; DR-9; DR-11; DR-14; DR-15; DR-28; DR-28S; SDR-28; DR-35; DR-41; and DR-45 . The very rare DR-14 was often confused with the DR-41 but it was a different model. They have a 3 piece back ala' D35, and the fret markers are different as well. These rare, hard to find models were actually made in Japan and imported to, and guaranteed by Levin in Sweden. They cost more than the top of the range DR-41 at the time. They have a paper label stating "Inspected and Guaranteed by Levin" and "Sigma Guitars" "est 1970" is inlaid on the headstock in abalone. There is a DR-14 on display in the Sigma Museum in Munich,Germany.
