100% original with OHSC; Grovers are on there now but original tuners are in the case. EXC condition; really fine example of an early 60’s Country Club in the always cool Cadillac Green/6196. Not many lefty 50s/early 60s Gretsches out there, especially in this condition!
This is a factory original left-handed 1954 Martin D-18(D-18L). It was owned
by the owner of a factory authorized Martin repair center for many years, and
was recently inspected and set-up by another owner of a factory authorized
Martin center for over 30 years.
This guitar is in EXC condition with no breaks, cracks, or repairs; how rare is that!
The only modifications are Grover P-98 tuners are on there now,
and it’s had a pro refret with slightly larger frets to make it easier to play.
Museum-quality all original Hammond B-3 from 1963, right when George Benson was playing with Jack McDuff. This B-3 has spent it’s entire life in 2 living rooms: mine and an elderly gentleman who I purchased it from many years ago. Has never, ever been on the road, and it shows! Paired with a rare Leslie 122RV from 1971 in EXC condition. If you want the real B-3 sound, you need a real B-3; there is no substitute! I realize this everytime I gig with my band!
I’ve been playing Steinways since I was 10 years old, having taken piano lessons from a student of Bartok who had 2 Steinway Model S Baby Grands in her living room. Then in college, I was playing on 6 different Steinways, ranging from a model M to the full 9′ Model D. There are pianos, and then there are Steinways; it’s that simple. This particular Model B has an outstanding tone, very musical without ever sounding harsh. The action is very forgiving but not too light; probably the best action of any Steinway I’ve played. EXC overall condition and a very nice example.
