Collings C-10 Custom 1991 - The C-10 is a Gibson-style guitar based on a L-OO model.  It features mahogany sides/back, Sitka spruce top, ebony fingerboard, transparent red finish, and white pearloid pickguard with matching headstock.  This is one of the earliest Collings guitars ever sold in Hawaii.  It has a three digit serial number!  With it's well balanced tone, this one is a finger picker's dream.  EC, HSC $3750.

Gibson CL-40 Artist 1997 - This square shouldered Gibson USA dreadnaught has a lot going for it.  Solid sitka top, solid Indian rosewood sides/back, ebony board/bridge, and large abalone inlays.  Sounds and plays great.  Oh, did I mention the price.... EC, HSC $1295.

Gibson J-45 1968 - Here's a classic Gibson dreadnaught in a vintage sunburst finish.  This one features a square shouldered body, instead of the more familar round shouldered body shape.  The finish is a little rough around the edges, which gives it a vintage vibe, but there are no cracks.  The rosewood fingerboard is attached to a slender late 60s mahogany neck and a rosewood bridge features an adjustable saddle.  VGC, GB $1295.

Larrivee OMV-60 2006 - This is a very nice fingerstyle guitar.  I don't think Larrivee gets enough respect for their fantastic instruments.  This one is their OM model with cutaway, solid spruce top, solid rosewood sides/back, ebony board/bridge, and herringbone trim on the top and rosette.  EC, HSC $1595.

Schoenberg Soloist Custom 1991 - Built through a collaboration with CF Martin, luthier T.J.

Seagull Performer CW Folk 2003 - The solid wood Performer series offers great value.  Based on their popular small bodied Folk body shape, the addition of maple sides/back, cutaway, and a EPM pickup system, makes this guitar an excellent on-stage instrument.  EC, HSC $299.
