Vintage Acoustics (and Mojo)

Here are some particularly sweet vintage acoustics we happen to have on hand at the moment. In the front is a 1973 Guild Bluegrass D-25, behind that is a 1963 Gibson B-25, and in the very back, keeping the other two in line, we have a 1955 Gibson LG-1.
Here's a photo to compare the big dreadnought Guild with the smaller-bodied Gibson. What the LG-1 lacks in size, though, it makes up for in sheer mojo. Forget selling your soul to the devil - if you show up to the crossroads with this baby, you'll have Ol' Scratch shining the hubcaps on your Cadillac just to get a few licks in on such a fine instrument.Of course, the B-25 is no slouch, either. Just about the prettiest finish you'll ever see, and it plays fantastic. It's had a headstock repair, but the fix is so clean you'll probably never have to worry about it. Still, the repair means that this guitar can be had for a very reasonable price considering it's age (and quality).

There you go - three vintage acoustics in search of a player. Stop by and check them out!
