Here's a once in a lifetime chance to snaffle a top quality instrument. We've priced some Guild electrics and Martin acoustics so low it makes our eyes water. There's a Guild Thunderbird, a Guild Aristocrat, a Martin Norman Blake model, a Martin M-38 as played by David Bromberg. And much more - every instrument a [...]
We have a very limited number of Oscar Schmidt autoharps available. These instruments from one of the original makers are high quality but very reasonably priced.

We are currently stocking the Newport and Montreux models, both of which feature abalone inlay, maple back and sides and spruce top, Kent [...]
