Staff
(Front row): Janet LaFata, Showroom Manager; Stanley Jay, President; Lou Russo, Art Director;
(Second row): Bea Jay, Webmaster Emeritus; Bonnie Cohen, Bookkeeper/Office Manager; Rachel Cohen, Shipping/Accesories Manager; Alison Jay, Customer Service
Manager/Webmaster ; Gil Rosado, Repair specializing in bass; (Back row): Rocco Monterosso, Head of Repair Dept., Leroy Aiello, Consultant; Eric Jay, Showroom Assistant;
Adam Rella, Repair Assistant.
Stan Jay, PRESIDENT; Our president came to Staten Island (Sharon) from Penn
State University to buy himself a Masters Degree in Education/English from Wagner
College and then, deciding that this was an unusually comfortable place to live, stayed on
for more years of higher learning as a Columbia University Teachers’ College doctoral
candidate for what became an Ab.D. (All but Dissertation) in the College Teaching of
English. At various times in his youth a mail carrier, part-time salesperson at Rondo
Music in Union, NJ, temporary typist, musician, accompanist, writer of magazine articles,
record producer, and college teacher of guitar and the arts, at age 28 Stan co-founded this
company (that would have been December 14, 1971, in the evening, actually) and, later
on, in Dec. of 1980, co-founded Steinberger Sound Corp. Music is his life.
Bonnie Cohen, OFFICE MANAGER; I was born a fairly long time ago and
relatively far away and, after many years doing other things, I woke up one morning
and found myself at Mandolin Brothers. I can’t play guitar. I tried – I was planning
to be the next Joan Baez when I was a junior in high school, but it didn’t work out. I
do sing although my kids complain about the vintage music, and I did play saxophone
in high school. We won’t discuss how well I played. I am, however, a very good
bookkeeper–watching our pennies carefully.
Bea Jay, Webmaster, Emeritus; Our Webmaster from 1996 through 2008,
making her one of the earlier Web maintainers on record. She retired from Verizon after
a 28½ year career humoring New York City telephone customers by allowing them to
constructively deal with adversity. In addition to her Web duties she plays piano and
organ at several Staten Island churches, and, is learning violin, viola and cello.
Alison Jay, Customer Service MANAGER/Webmaster; the eldest of
Stan and Bea’s progeny, is in charge of clerical and customer service (dream fulfillment)
work. She has worked at Mandolin Brothers for a dozen years as a fulltime employee but
started here when she was a little girl, stuffing envelopes when she was only 10 years
old (please don’t tell the authorities). She intends to become as well-versed in the history
and evaluation of musical instruments as her father is today.
Rachel Cohen, SHIPPING /ACCESSORIES MANAGER; is in charge of packing/
shipping/receiving instruments, cases, books, apparel, DVDs, small goods display, and
accessories purchasing. In 2005, Rachel took over for her dad (Steven Cohen) who was
our former accessories manager. Someone from the Cohen family has held this position
for, let’s see, 165 years now going back to Ebenezer Cohen in 1843.
Lou Russo, ART DIRECTOR. As well as being a striking, original commercial
artist, Lou is also a singer/songwriter/guitarist whose CDs are available on Amazon,
and whose songs are played on local independent radio stations such as WFMU-FM.
Our Art Director has a background in both graphic design and fine art and has done
both sales promotion and editorial design with major advertising agencies; he has also
been an illustrator for Business Week, Thomson, Doubleday and others. Speaking of
Abner Doubleday, Lou’s painting of Ebbets’ Field, called “First Game,” is on display
at the Brooklyn Gallery (Brooklyn Dodgers’ Hall of Fame) at Keyspan Park in Coney
Island and, if you’re interested, signed/numbered prints are available on eBay.
Eric Jay, SHOWROOM ASSISTANT.
Rocco Monterosso, HEAD OF REPAIR DEPT.; Specializing in Setups and
Custom Wiring and all other aspects of repairing stringed instruments.
Leroy Aiello, CONSULTANT; Expert in all types of repairs and restorations.
Gil Rosado, REPAIR; Specializing in Bass, Mandolin and Banjo.

Since We’re Here and You’re There What’s it Worth?
In our catalog we try very hard to provide you with the information necessary to make
an informed choice, even though you may be far away. We can send you emailed or printed
photographs of the instrument you are considering purchasing, provide you a complete hands on
description over the phone, and even play it for you and compare it to other similar pieces. We
maintain an extremely large and varied selection including many unique or difficult-to-find brands
and models that are seldom available from your average music store. We are in constant contact
with the manufacturers so we can secure any item for you that we may not have in stock, or get
you a price quotation on a special order or custom instrument.
We understand that there’s nothing like having the guitar (or bass, banjo or mandolin) in hand,
so we offer a full three-day approval privilege to enable you to try anything in stock - show it to
your teacher and your friends. If you don’t like something you received just let us know within the
first three days that you are going to return it and all you pay are the shipping charges, both ways.
Even the most expensive instruments can be purchased this way, including one-of-a-kind vintage
pieces. And speaking of vintage pieces, we offer a bi-monthly newsletter called (reverb please)
The Vintage News, which our subscribers tell us is a hoot to read. This is only $20 a year (6
bi-monthly issues) domestic, and includes our vintage inventory as well as featured descriptions
of the coolest collectibles. See subscription form towards back of Catalog.
This catalog is our introduction to you, so you can get to know who we are and a little about
the things we do. Each person on our staff is able to answer your questions about a specific
aspect of your inquiry. If you need more detail about a particular product, if you need to know the
date that your instructional video tapes were shipped, if you have any questions about the value
of your own vintage instrument - we are happy to give you advice. When you have something you
would like to sell, or to have us sell for you on consignment, just send photos, or describe it by
phone. We’ll let you know if it is the kind of thing we can use and what you can net from it.
We wish you can all come visit with us. Perhaps you will. Sooner or later everybody has a
reason to visit the New York Metropolitan Area (we’re only around 20 minutes from Newark Airport
by car). If you find that you are unable to come to Staten Island to buy yourself, say, a mandolin,
you can, with the help of this catalog, your telephone and the postal or United Parcel Service,
shop from the warmth of your very own living room.
A catalog is not as good as a personal visit, but we’d like to think that we can make your mailorder experience with us as close as possible to your actually being here.
Our Guarantee:
Every new item is new & warranted by its manufacturer. You have a three [3] day approval
privilege on any item shipped to you except for custom or special orders. [Approval is not offered
on new instruments which are not normally in stock or which have pickups or strap pins added,
or are personalized for you. Items ordered by us especially for you are shipped on a final sale
basis.] Please notify us within 3 days after receipt of your order if, for any reason, you are not
100% satisfied with the merchandise received. We will exchange the merchandise or refund
the purchase price, at your option, excluding freight. After 3 days, all sales become final. (See
instructions for ordering on the inside back cover.)
To “Hold” an Instrument:
You can phone us and we will hold the instrument of your choice, pending the arrival of
funds, for 0NE [1] WEEK. This is especially important when ordering vintage or one-of-a-kind
instruments which are subject to prior sale, or new instruments which are in exceedingly short
supply. After one week from the “hold” date, the instrument is put back on sale. If during that week,
you wish to remove the hold, please call us and let us know.
Pricing:
Most items show three prices: manufacturer’s suggested list, our discounted price for
payment by any means you choose, and our best price for payment by cash at our showroom,
bank check, money order or wire transfer of funds. Some manufacturers ask that we do not print
discount prices, whenever “List Price Only” appears or when the word "MAP" appears, please call
or e-mail us to find out if a further discount is available (sometimes yes, sometimes the MAP is
the price—definitely call us). All prices are subject to change without notice. We make every
effort to ensure accuracy but we cannot be responsible for typographical errors or manufacturers’
price increase.
Guitar Brands Which Are Missing From this Catalog:
Having failed to put a damper on direct mail merchandising by petitioning the federal
government (without success) to force mail order merchants to collect sales tax from out-of-state
purchasers, there now seems to be a trend among musical manufacturers to prohibit dealers
who might also happen to be mail order merchants from advertising their products in national
catalogs such as this. We are concerned about this new direction in the music industry, and for
good reason: since you can no longer read about these guitars and acoustic amps in our catalog
you are unlikely to contact us to find out which models we have in stock, or to ask questions about
materials, appointments, size, tonal capabilities, options and prices. We can only advise that if you
have seen a particular brand listed in our catalog in past years, but it’s not in this issue, and you
wonder whether we still sell that product you should phone, write, fax or e-mail us at mandolin@
mandoweb.com and find out.

MANDOLIN BROTHERS, LTD. If you own or if you have been offered a vintage American guitar, a
banjo or mandolin or electric bass and wish to know its current market
value, just call and ask us for advice. Widely known as one of the largest
dealers in the world of vintage and new American fretted instruments,
we are frequently recommended by Gibson Guitar Corp., Nashville,
TN, when they receive inquiries about vintage and used instruments.
We have appraised the contents of the C F Martin museum for Martin
five times, the estate of C.F. Martin Ill, Roy Smeck, Merle Travis and
the personal collection of George Fullerton. We are recommended by
many local music stores around the country and by other manufacturers,
libraries, museums, magazines and news paper columnists. In business
since 1971, we service the needs of over 200,000 players and collectors
of American fretted instruments.
Visiting Mandolin Brothers showroom is like no other retail store
experience you have ever had. It’s as comfortable as being home,
if your home were stocked with many hundreds of exceedingly high
quality, original condition fretted instruments. Your questions are
answered accurately and completely - our greatest goal is to educate
our customers to the differences between brands, models, styles, woods
and appointments, so that they can make up their own minds based
on having the information required to do so. When we handle the sale
of an instrument for an owner we do not complacently wait for buyers
to walk in, we market it by actively sending out color photographs and
complete descriptions to those, from our client base, whom we know will
be interested, reviewing it in The Vintage News & posting it with color
photos to our Web Site on the Internet.
We treat every customer like a friend of the company. People
tell us that our performance is exceedingly reliable, the quality of the
merchandise received is even better than anticipated. We’ve been called
“old fashioned” in the way we provide personal service, including offering
free verbal evaluation of vintage fretted instruments to callers world wide.
Mandolin Brothers, Ltd. is widely known for its high level of
professionalism. This, plus our outstanding reputation for reliability, are
good reasons why you should consider placing your instrument with us for
consignment sale, or shipping it for trade/purchase. In fact, we have been
called “a toy store for guitar players” and it’s easy to see why: the place is
wall-to-wall acoustic, electric and archtop guitars, banjos and mandolins.

GUITARS
Robert Taylor has been building guitars for three
and a half decades, and even though his factory
has grown large, he 's personally made thousands
of guitars. One at a time. There is something so
gripping about painstakingly making a guitar—a
single guitar—and putting attention into every detail, sandpaper and chisel in hand. A luthier never
tires of this.
There's no question that fervent attention to
detail yields a superior guitar. One strum is all
it takes to reveal it. Even one look promises that
you're in for something good. Welcome to R. Taylor Guitars.
The R. Taylor studio is housed in a separate
building on the campus of Taylor Guitars. Here,
five craftsmen work to build a handful of guitars
each week. Each luthier has a minimum of ten
years experience at Taylor, and each possesses the
skill and the will to create a guitar in a special way
that cannot normally be done. Starting with the
finest woods available in the world, they thoughtfully lay out the parts, weigh and measure, and
design a plan, drawing upon their depths of experience. What top geometry or bracing alteration
will work on this striped ebony back and sides?
How do they work with cocobolo to fashion a fingerstyle instrument for one customer and a strummer for another? This is what they do with each of
the three hundred or so guitars they will make in a
year. The extra attention to detail means a lot more
labor hours spent on each guitar. But they believe
it's worth it. We're confident you will, too.
We spend a lot of time talking about details
because that's what these guitars are all about: details. – Robert Taylor

Combine exquisite craftmanship and cutting edge guitar
design and you have McPherson Guitars, featuring revolutionary Offset Soundhole TechnologyTM, state-of-the-art
bracing, and unique "no-touch" cantilevered neck design.
The result is a guitar with a distinctive and incredible sound.
The elliptical shape, size and location of the McPherson
Guitars soundhole is the result of exhaustive testing. Their
innovative, state-of-the-art bracing maximizes the available open, ‘vibrating’ area on the inside of the guitar face. The secret is to minimize connection to the underside of
the top, thereby maximizing top vibration and resonation.
The unique cantilevered neck helps to optimize top vibra- That’s precisely what their revolutionary bracing structure
tion. This patent pending design also offers unmatched accomplishes.
neck stability and inhibits the potential for warpage. 
Traditional center-hole design robs a guitar of soundenhancing flexible surface area.
By moving the soundhole “to the edge,” to a very specific and
crucial position on the guitar’s face, they’ve effectively increased flexible surface area on the central part of the instrument.
If you look closely you’ll see that the neck on the
McPherson Guitar is not connected/glued onto the
top of the guitar. This “no-touch” design allows the
top to vibrate and resound to its fullest potential.
Collectively, with their Offset Soundhole and unique bracing, this neck design results in the remarkable sound of the
McPherson Guitar.
The result is a sound you’ve got to hear to believe!

Breedlove guitars are hand built in Bend, in the mountains of
central Oregon, by a small group of skilled craftspeople. The
Breedlove Performance & Master Class designs are tighter
waisted than most guitars and feature a smaller soundhole, which
is positioned higher on the instrument. This re-proportioned
design and special interior construction frees more of the top
for vibration and resonance.

Presenting a non-cutaway, walnut sides &
back, spruce top, fourteen-fret, wood-based
behemoth with the deco pattern of five dots
inlaid in the ebony board on the bass side
and then five dots on the treble with two twin
dots only at the 12th. This guitar is bursting
with the full palette of sonic seasoning,
a molecular montage of myth and melody.
It is our fervent belief that the Breedlove
Guitar Company of Bend, O’er, makes
the definitive jumbo twelve-string guitar.
Utilizing the famous Bridge Truss System
the tension is virtually eliminated from the top, which allows it to vibrate,
unimpeded, and gives huge volume across the entire tonal range, with
an especially strong bass. A twelve-string can always be depended on to
provide jingle-jangle, but few others have the enormous bass power that
a Breedlove jumbo does. From the carefully engineered string spacing at
the nut to the multiple compensated saddle, care has been taken to ensure
that the player will be comfortable and thusly motivated to play this guitar
daily. The American walnut (or rosewood, maple or mahogany) back and
sides are lightly figured and bound in black. The stately Sitka top, across
its full 17” expanse, looks very much like Adirondack, with alternating
wide grain and close grain. The scale length is 25.5, decidedly long, which
results in a sense of low-tension for the player, and the guitar, even with
twelve individual nickel-plated Mini-Grover Rotomatics, is quite light in
weight for such a large-body instrument. The pointy, proprietary new-age
peg head, with its black overlay, bears the almost indecipherable “Flying
B” of Breedlove. There’s the secure case within which to carry it. With a
bound top and back, wherein even the heel is capped in black, the twelvestring which knows no peer brings you sound, projection and tonal range
that will charm your audience into dreamlike fits of adulation. For all the
tone and timbre you release, at the lightest touch, using this magnificent
guitar, the price is astonishingly low. Call for price.

D-18 and D-28 75th Anniversary.
00-42K2
Robbie Robertson
Limited Edition (100)
BACK AND SIDES
Solid Highly Flamed Koa
Robbie Robertson’s favorite Martin is a unique 1919
00-45K, the only koa 00-45 ever produced.
To honor this artist’s contributions to American
music, C. F. Martin is proud to introduce the
00-42K2, Robbie Robertson Limited
Edition model, which was inspired by
this exquisite instrument: The strikingly
beautiful 00-42K2 features the Hawaiian
flamed koa theme. Delivered in a Geibstyle hardshell case, each of these
Limited Edition guitars bears an
interior label signed by Robbie
Robertson and numbered in
sequence with the edition total.
The first fourteen-fret dreadnoughts debuted in
1934 at which time C F Martin shipped approximately 42 D-18s and 52 D-28 guitars.
In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of that
Depression-era introduction of these two staples,
yes, Twin Towering Totums of the ever-expanding
Universe of Melodious Vibration, we are pleased
to entice you with two sterling commemorative
editions. The D-18 is based upon today’s D-18
Golden Era with the exception of having the Madagascar rosewood headplate instead of Brazilian
rosewood to allow for export shipments (we know
you stay up late at night worrying about export
shipments). The D-28 75th Anniversary Edition is based on a D-28 Marquis Madagascar.
Both guitars are provisioned Adirondack
spruce tops. A special embroidered
Harptone case accompanies each
instrument, but you may, if you wish,
accompany it with your own singing.

Eric Clapton Sunburst
Limited Edition
(461 Combined Total)
BACK AND SIDES
Solid Madagascar
Rosewood
Back in late 2007, just before Martin introduced the 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited Edition guitar,
Eric Clapton suggested in an interview he wanted to take an extended break from music (for the exact
quote, see the January, 2008 Sounding Board at www.martinguitar.com). Truth be told, the rock
legend appears to be having too much fun to go on a long hiatus: in 2008, he barely slowed down.
But in his spare time, Eric Clapton has been enjoying his Martin 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited
Edition (introduced in 2008), so much so that, when approached about a possible new namesake
Martin, he suggested another “000” with the same rare tonewoods, but one a bit less fancy. The
new Martin 000-28M Eric Clapton Limited Edition fits that description perfectly. Available with
vintage toner or 1935 sunburst, each will bear an interior label signed by Eric Clapton.

C. F. Martin & Co. is grounded in tradition, going back
more than 175 years to young Christian Frederick
Martin’s apprenticeship in Vienna.
As demand for guitars has risen, we’ve risen, building
more and better guitars at superior quality. Today we offer
over 120 models of various sizes, styles and affordability.
In addition to our famous Dreadnoughts and other Martin
traditional styles, we regularly introduce models that
address changing player preferences – cutaway models,
acoustic electric models, alternative and sustainable
wood models, mini and travel guitars and scores of
Limited Editions and Artist Signature models.
At Martin we’ve never been shackled by the past.
We continually search for the best traditional tone
woods, as well as alternative materials and sustainable
woods. We build our guitars to closer tolerances; utilize
computer-assisted carving machines for greater accuracy
and consistency; apply traditional lacquer finishes as well
as high-tech finishes with a mind for beauty, protection
and sound enhancement.
It was Stan Jay of Mandolin Bros. who suggested
the idea for a bronze commemorative plaque at
the site of C. F. Martin’s first shop in America.
PHONE: (718) 981-3226 or 981-8585 At the same time, we still bring a great deal of hand
craftsmanship to every step of the building process.
Today’s Martin guitars are a unique product of the
latest technology and the human touch, which is how
it has always been. Even our founder, C. F. Martin, Sr.,
continually sought ways to build more and better
guitars to meet the needs of his customers.
In an age of change and intense competition,
C. F. Martin remains America’s leading guitar
builder for a very basic reason: We’re still in tune
with what players want and the quality they expect.

focused attention on alternative materials. The breakthrough ‘X Series’ features
guitars that are constructed with a combination of highly compressed wood
fibers (high-pressure laminate, called HPL) and traditional tonewoods. HPL is
an extremely durable and workable material. What’s more they’ve managed
to build them so they possess the ‘famous’ Martin sound and playability found
in more expensive guitars. Common features: wood composite laminate body
construction, patented neck Mortise, unique DX-bracing on models with HPL
tops. X series do not come with carrying case.

STANDARD SERIES
This series constitutes the historic core of
the Martin line. These guitars represent the
majority of sizes and styles that have evolved
during the past century. They are known for
resonant warmth of tone with tastefully restrained
styling, with a molded hard shell case. Each is
made with dovetail joint that assures the greatest
transference of tonal density from neck to body.
All gloss body finish, all solid woods, and a level
of attention to detail that has defined the Martin
Guitar Company for the past 173 years makes the
Standard Series a bona fide bargain.

These fine instruments draw their
inspiration from the elegant vintage
designs and appointments of the pre-WW
II era. Common features: old-style squared
headstock, modified V-shaped neck, period
fingerboard inlays, scalloped bracing,
beveled edge tortoise colored pickguard,
old-style, yet removable, drop-in long or

MANDOLIN BROTHERS, LTD. Kinscherff
Jamie Kinscherff is a luthier based
in Texas. A one-man operation,
he generally produces 18-20
instruments a year. Creator of the
intergalactally known KinscherffModified X Bracing System, his
outlook is as follows: use the finest
materials available and put into
each instrument the engineering
and craftsmanship that will result
in excellent tone, playability and
physical beauty.
We proudly present:
High Noon - The most popular model
in the Kinscherff line. A small jumbo
that is great for everything from fingerstyle to flatpicking. It
has considerable balance and tonal composition. Scale
length 25.5", length 20.5", depth 4 5/8".
Concert - This is an OM style guitar, that provides
surprising volume, great projection, and a wellrounded bass. It has the woody midrange often
associated with this kind of instrument. Scale length
25.5", length 19.5", depth 4 1/4".
Dreadnought - The traditional D shape provides
tremendous power and volume. A workhorse for
most styles of popular music (but you don't have to
brush it.), with enough projection to cut through the
mix when played alongside other instruments. Scale
length 25.5", length 20", depth 4 5/8".
Troubadour - Jamie’s smallest guitar is the newest
addition to the Kinscherff line. The Troubadour has
the size and shape of the Gibson Pre-war L-00, famous
as a blues guitar since the earliest days. It is also
popular as a short scale, 12-fret model. Scale length
24.9", length 19 1/4", depth 4 1/4".
All four have the same base price of $5,500.

unique marriage of the finest selection
of tonewoods and incomparable
attention to detail…without
compromise…”

• The Grand Concert model is a wonderful blend of clarity and
balance with punch, and a smooth rich bottom end. It has singing,
lyrical treble with excellent sustain. It is considered ideal for the
fingerstylist due to its sensitive, dynamic responsiveness; it is equally
appropriate for the flatpicker or plectrum player.
Concert Jumbo. “The powerful, rich, and clear tone has exceeded my
expectations,” James Goodall said of his new Concert Jumbo. The
Concert Jumbo series guitar is slightly smaller than the Standard series
and larger than the Grand Concert series guitar. It is available with all
the same fine options and wood choices as in all Goodall guitars.
Dimensions- Widest bout: 15 7/8 inches ~ Depth: 4 3/8 ~ Scale
length: 25 1/2 inches.
• The Standard model is approximately the same cavity as the
dreadnought guitar, but that is where the resemblance stops. The
amazingly rich, powerful bass and midrange is blended with a brilliant
treble shimmering with harmonic overtones.
• The Concert Jumbo series Model was created in November 1998.
This was in response to increasing requests for a more comfortable,
smaller body dimension than the Goodall Standard (near in size to
the Dreadnought). The end result is a beautiful new shape called the

James L. D’Aquisto
One of the greatest guitar luthiers in
history, James L. D’Aquisto, started
his career in archtop guitar building
at the age of 17 at D’Angelico’s studio.
He founded his own D’Aquisto brand
after the passing of John D’Angelico
and is known to have created some of
the best-sounding, most sought-after
archtop guitars available until his
untimely death at the age of 59 in 1995.
The instruments he created in his late
years are regarded as the “Holy Grail”
and are still the inspirational source for
many archtop guitar builders. ARIA

Richard Hoover began building guitars and carved mandolins in 1972. By 1976 his focus was on the modern steel string guitar. The task of
becoming a master at all aspects of guitar-making is a lifetime preoccupation, the pace determined by how prolific the maker is. It was and is
Richard’s intent to translate the skills and sensitivity of the individual luthier to a small team of exceptional craftspeople — each becoming expert
in his or her specialty. To this end, Santa Cruz Guitar Company has become one of the world’s most respected team of guitar builders. By limiting
the number of instruments built, they can practice a style of lutherie born from a genuine love of the guitar. This attention assures that every Santa
Cruz Guitar falls in the exceptional range. It is their intent to present the guitar player a sophisticated instrument with well-developed and complex
overtones that will inspire and challenge the guitarist throughout a lifetime. Prices include hard case and are quoted as List/Discount/Best Price
for cash, bank check or wire transfer. Made in Santa Cruz, CA.

THE TONY RICE MODEL D - Tony Rice is the master of contemporary
bluegrass guitar. He has enhanced his traditional background with influences
from Clarence White to Coltrane, creating a style that demands more from
a guitar than the venerable vintage dreadnoughts could deliver. Tony’s
legendary 1930s D-28, previously owned by Clarence White, served as the
model for an instrument design that combines the bass presence of the old
D-28 with more substantial midrange and treble response, which is necessary
for Tony’s modern lead work. The sophisticated tone in
the higher ranges of this guitar will inspire flatpickers to
explore new territory. The Tony Rice Model is the result of
a 12-year collaboration with Tony Rice, and is the epitome
of a contemporary bluegrass guitar.............................4,850

all of the trimmings. It features Brazilian rosewood back
& sides, German spruce top, a through saddle, wider
bridge pin spacing, a 4 9/16” sound hole, 25 1/4” scale
length, a Brazilian rosewood headstock overlay, gold
Waverly tuners, custom neck profile, and a headstock and
fingerboard that are bound in a three layer ivoroid/black/
ivoroid binding. Additionally, this new model incorporates
a series of radii in a new bracing pattern which helps the
guitar’s projection and structional integrity............12,450
Tony Rice Model D
SCGC D Pre-War - The D/PW incorporates pre-war
(PW) advanced X bracing similar to famous pre-war herringbone guitars, and
simple, elegant appointments in a professional-grade instrument. The result is
a guitar in tune with the needs of working musicians and serious amateurs, at
a price unmatched for an acoustic guitar of this caliber. Advanced X bracing
provides the model with its distinctive open sound. The full overtone series
and tone depth of guitars with advanced X bracing are particularly well suited
for rhythm playing and vocal accompaniment. The D Pre-War R features
Indian rosewood body, Sitka spruce top, Ebony fingerboard and bridge, herringbone rosette, and high gloss finish. Simple appointments contribute to the
elegance of the D/PW.

created to produce the clarity and sustain necessary for an articulate response.
The advanced X-brace on top is voiced to achieve maximum response in all
ranges, avoiding the twelve fret guitar’s tendency toward boominess at the
expense of mid-range and treble. Mahogany comprises the back and sides.

OM MODEL - Hats off to the innovators of 1929 who
Model OM
took the risk of introducing the Orchestra Model, a very
large body guitar for its day, designed to cut through other
orchestral instruments. When the still larger dreadnought
was introduced in 1934 it was assumed that the OM had
become obsolete and it was discontinued. Today, the OM
is a medium-sized body guitar with a powerful sound.
The balance of the OM favors bass to mid-range, inviting
comparison to a small dreadnought. The OM has become a
favorite of fingerstylists and players preferring the comfort of a
less deep body that delivers considerable power.

00-12 FRET - Small body guitar with a sweet and airy tone. The 00 features

a classical guitar. This model is ideal for players seeking a warm and intimate
sound from their guitar.

000-12 FRET - Available with either a solid or slotted
headstock, the 000-R 12 Fret features an Indian rosewood

black purfling, an ebony fingerboard with ivoroid /
black/ ivoroid multiple binding to match the headstock’s
binding, a Sitka spruce top with herringbone purfling and
an OM-Style pickguard. The neck is set with 12 frets clear
of the body, in traditional 000 styling, utilizing a 25.385”
fretboard scale length and a nut width of 1 3/4”. It also has
an ebony headstock overlay and inlaid Santa Cruz Guitar

H SERIES
MODEL H - The volume of this guitar is startling for a
small bodied guitar. The depth of the body allows for a much larger presence
than is expected in this size instrument. A very even balance gives the H a
precise response capable of being driven as in blues or dynamic fingerstyles.
The H is highly recommended for those who prefer the sweetness of the small
bodied guitars but need the advantage of more volume.

H 13 - Despite its small appearance, the H 13 Fret employs a body depth
approaching that of a much larger dreadnought-sized guitar, producing extra
volume and bass support to bolster its rich tone. Features of the handcrafted
H 13 Fret include a specially hand-tuned bracing system beneath its top-grade
Sitka spruce top, a slotted headstock for classic style and enhanced string
angle and sustain, and an ebony 1” x 6” pyramid rectangular bridge. The sides
and back are select mahogany, and the mahogany neck features an ebony
fingerboard with a total of 19 frets......................................................... 4,795
F SERIES
THE FS MODEL - This Indian rosewood back and sides model uses only a
master-grade cedar top. These tops are voiced to provide excellent separation
and clarity for the lower string tension of open tunings with surprising volume
from light attack. Brazilian rosewood binding and cobalt blue wood purfling
compliment the classical appearance and enhance the tone of this guitar. The
Model FS is designed for contemporary fingerstyle playing................. 5,375

MODEL F - The Model F is the most striking of the Santa Cruz line. Its
visual appeal gracefully accommodates options such as the cutaway body and

of Lewiston, ME
The Story of Dana Bourgeois
Dana Bourgeois’ career began when he built his first guitar in his
dorm room at his alma mater Bowdoin College in Maine. Shortly after
launching into lutherie on a full-time basis in 1978, Dana received
a request from Eric Schoenberg to build an OM cutaway in the
traditional design. This initiated a decade-long partnership and was
the foundation for Dana’s first venture involving the small production
of handcrafted instruments. Martin Guitars was engaged in the final
assembly of guitars with tops Dana had personally voiced. Over 300
guitars were built in this fashion bearing the Schoenberg label but
carrying the signature of Dana’s design and sound.
Today, Dana is considered to be an expert on the voicing, selection and
utilization of acoustic tone woods. Pantheon Guitars is delighted to have
Dana leading production efforts at their Lewiston, Maine facility.
Prices include a deluxe hardshell case.

Since the Ramirez company was founded in 1882 by José Ramirez, the traditional knowledge
of building high quality guitars has been handed down from father to son. Ramirez created
guitars in his own personal style which still serves as a model for the construction of guitars
the world over. The most important breakthroughs were accomplished by José Ramirez
Ill, who created a series of decisive modifications to the internal structure of the guitar. At
present, José Ramirez IV is in charge of the workshop and devotes his time to the design of
these instruments in collaboration with José Ramirez Ill. Each guitar that is released from
the workshop is subjected to his supervision before it reaches the hands of its future owner.
This quality control is reflected in a lifetime limited guarantee from the maker. Please call for
more information. All models priced with case. Ramirez Guitars are made in Madrid, Spain. Ask us about the updated prices.
“1a” means “primera” in Spanish, meaning “1st” or “highest” quality. The
1a Traditional represents top quality in workmanship, detail and choice of wood.
BASIC MODEL OPTIONS: German Spruce top. Indian rosewood back and
sides, short scale (650mm) or long scale (664mm), 8 or 10 strings.
SPECIAL MODELS:
GH George Harrison Model

and solid, clear basses. Designed by Amalia Ramirez. 650mm.... 4,049 2,999

Flammang
ACOUSTIC GUITARS
5/09
The name Flammang derives from Luxembourg, a grand duchy in Europe
bounded by Belgium, Germany and France. David Flammang, however, is not
from the grand duchy, himself, he’s now working in Greene, Iowa. “My guitars
are about balance, appearance and tone,” he modestly says. One of his guitars
was played by Donna Martin at the Lilith Fair performance and many are used by
singer-songwriters on the east coast. The Flammang brand name takes the form
of a lower case “f” logo on the headstock, simple yet elegant, understated, just
like his guitars, and inlaid in mother of pearl. Cedar Creek custom case included.

A guitar’s primary function is usually measured in musical terms: its ability to produce precise notes, chords and passages on demand. Consistency
is the ultimate test of its perfection. But to master luthier and craftsman John Buscarino, this is only a beginning. John is one of the few luthiers
working today, a solo artisan handcrafting guitars suited to each customer’s personal needs. His instruments are prized not just for the beautiful
sounds they produce, but also as the cherished possessions they inevitably become. Guitar player Steve Morse considers his Buscarino guitars
“treasured works of art,” as do many of John’s customers. John is unique among today’s guitar builders in that he apprenticed with not one but two
master luthiers. The first was Augustine LoPrinzi, from whom John learned the finer points of building classical guitars. John later worked with famed
archtop builder Robert Benedetto, spending years perfecting the woodworking skills that today make him a master luthier in his own right. John has
created hundreds of exquisite guitars using proven methods passed down over generations. He is constantly refining these time-tested techniques,
taking each to new levels of perfection in mastering the art of lutherie. The MONARCH
The CABARET
Classic Electric Cutaway
Regal without pretensions, the Monarch
was designed in collaboration with
master archtop luthier Robert Benedetto.
It follows in the tradition of the master
handing down years of perfected
methods and designs to his apprentice.
Possessing all the features of the
Artisan, the Monarch boasts several
attractive additions. Crowning this guitar
is a large Benedetto-style headstock with
mitred purflings and pinstripe-enhanced
binding. The f-holes are fully bound
and also trimmed with mitred pinstriped
purflings. Only the finest quartersawn
seasoned instrument woods are used
in its construction, and as with every
archtop guitar in the Buscarino lineage
the Monarch is meticulously assembled
and tuned. A long list of options (including
the sunburst finish shown right), allow the
Monarch to be custom designed as a
guitar fit for a king.
16” OR 17” ARCHTOP (5-ply double
arched case)................................$13,750
The Cabaret is the perfect blend of a traditional
classical guitar and an acoustic archtop guitar.
Specifically designed to meet the needs of the
jazz or fingerstyle player, the Cabaret is based on
the Herman Hauser I classical guitar design. The
Cabaret incorporates traditional classical building
methods with modern innovations necessary
for today’s jazz and fingerstyle playing. The
graceful cutaway facilitates greater access for
playing the upper register of the fretboard. Its
carved back, unique among nylon-string guitars,
enhances the lower midrange while aiding in
projection. The two-way adjustable truss rod
gives easy access at the headstock for a perfect
set-up. Special pickup systems available for
amplification of that beautiful acoustic sound.
Now includes wood binding.
CABARET or GRAND CABARET (with 5-ply
double arched case).................................$7,800
The ARTISAN
Especially designed with the working
musician in mind, the Artisan is a practically
priced archtop that stands on its own as a
quality player’s instrument. Its statement of
elegance and simplicity makes this guitar
a pleasure to own and play. The Artisan is
constructed of single-A woods, and comes
with a solid ebony tail-piece and pickguard,
floating pickup, and a five-ply, plush-lined,
arched case. The natural finish (shown
left) is standard. Single-line binding on
the f-holes is available. Simply a great
guitar. 16” OR 17” ARCHTOP (5-ply double
arched case)................................... $8,800
The VIRTUOSO
The masterpiece of this instrument collection is the
Virtuoso. From top to bottom, this is the most elaborate of
the Buscarino archtop guitars. Master grade woods are
standard throughout. The headstock’s exotic burled-wood
face plate is adorned with an ornate inlay and a unique
mother-of-pearl banner inscribed with “Virtuoso.” Burled
wood veneers on the back of the headstock and the heelcap
complete the exotic motif. The specially patterned motherof-pearl inlays are standard on the fingerboard and
tailpiece, although block inlays may be substituted.
Delicate fine-line binding is employed throughout the
instrument. Virtuoso options include natural wood
binding and vine inlay, fingerboard and tailpiece. A
superb “treasured work of art” VIRTUOSO 16” OR
17” ARCHTOP (with 5-ply double arched case)

MASTER BUILT
Fender’s Master builders are true craftpersons who have "mastered" the art of turning wood,
metal, paint and wire into exceptional guitars and basses. They construct your instrument to your
specifications. You may even be contacted by the builder who will listen to your original idea and suggest
the best way to get it accomplished. Your builder may talk to you about the amplification you use, the tone
you’re after, even your favorite musicians and walk you through every aspect of the guitar's design.
Your instrument will have the look, feel and sound that you’ve always wanted.
E-mail or call Mandolin Brothers to get started on your personalized masterpiece.

THE GUITAR OF DA MUNT:
76-8524 C F Martin (used, 1940) 000-28 “herringbone,”
#74098, in very good plus restored condition with newer
plush lined hard shell case. As we saunter through the Library
of Fretted Instruments, we find that, in the annals of “the best guitars
ever made,” there is a special listing (with an asterisk) for the prewar
Martin 000-28. If you look down at the bottom of the page there’s
another asterisk and it says “Ask Eric Clapton,” who is said to use,
as his primary acoustic guitar, a 1936 Martin
000-28 herringbone. The sound of this guitar is
nothing less than exquisite – it penetrates
every pore of the person performing
and the audience, in turn, hearing its
unique, melodious timbre, is cast
into a beige haze of honeyed rays,
bestowing wondrous happiness,
comfort and rapturous contentment. It’s a lot like nitrous
oxide, but without those pesky
drilling noises. This guitar plays
without either physical or mental
energy – it practically plays itself.
All this beauty and exceptional usability comes with a price, however. The
guitar has been fitted with a new bone nut of
fossil ivory and a new ebony belly bridge with a
through-saddle of fossil ivory. It has, in addition,
new crème bridge pins with tortoise shell color
dots. Remaining below it is the slight shadow of
the earlier, larger, replacement bridge it once had.
The bridge plate underlying that bridge is original but it has been doweled to accommodate the
new bridge. It has, in the past, had a neck reset
and a refret. The top and the headstock are over
sprayed; the back, sides and the back of the neck
are refinished. The end pin is broken with the
conical base implanted in the tailpin hole and
the head in a baggie in the pocket of the case. It could use a new
end pin. Tuners are newer replacement Waverlys. The pickguard
is replaced but resides happily under the finish, as they were at the
time. One can see the slight outline of a former slightly oversized
pickguard. There are two well-repaired cracks below the bridge and
the suggestion of a multiple pickguard crack on the treble edge of the
pickguard, also well-repaired. These are common. The neck has in
the past been shaved to a more modern profile – it is now essentially
a “modified V-shape neck” instead of a prewar huge V-shaped neck.
It plays with extreme ease.
The guitar shows (after
its over spraying and
refinishing was executed)
light normal signs of use –
some scuffs, some scratches, some over sprayed
chips around the edges
of the headstock, and the
C F Martin & Co. logo is
slightly less vivid because
of the overspray. All of
this professional restoration notwithstanding what you have here is one
of the best sounding, best playing and beautiful
short-scale Auditorium-sized guitars of the prewar period, one of only 86 made in 1940 and of
910 made total from 1934 – the year Martin went
to 14-fret -- to 1944 when they discontinued
scalloped bracing. One could reasonably argue
that perhaps half of those made were destroyed
(203 of them by one person, with an antique axe
left to him by his great grandfather), leaving
precious few for us lovers of steel, celluloid and
wood marquetry to lust after. This guitar has
already achieved the status of “legendary” in our
showroom. You really need to stop by and try it
– just to refresh your memory as to what a great
vintage Martin is all about. $25,775 or, at our Cash Discount
Price, an even $25,000.

Travel Directions
Being musicians ourselves, we understand that the most important factor in choosing
any instrument, in addition to having access to the finest, most world-reknowned brands, is
the ability to play and compare a broad selection of them, side by side, and to have all your
questions answered about what makes each one different. At Mandolin Brothers’ showroom
(a short ferry boat ride from Manhattan, minutes from Newark Airport or the Staten Island
bridges) we maintain a stock of hundreds of top professional guitars, banjos, mandolins
and basses, including many current new models made by the major manufacturers, plus a
large selection of vintage and custom pieces. Many of these instruments go beyond prosaic
functionality-they are among the most beautiful, three dimensional American art forms
available today. We invite you to come to Staten Island and try them yourself.
With life as hectic as it is, and distances as great as they are, you may find it inconvenient
to visit us as often as you’d like. Give us a call. We can often ascertain which instrument is
appropriate for you from your description of the desired playing characteristics. All telephone/
mail-order instruments except special or custom orders are shipped on approval and may
be returned (within 3 days; please refer to “wire transfers” in the right column, for a complete
explanation of our return policy).
GENERAL INFO
WIRE TRANSFERS AND APPROVAL
We can ship any fine instrument in stock ON APPROVAL so that you can try it,
without obligation to keep it, for a three day trial period in your home. To do this: a)
phone us and reserve the piece you desire so that it doesn’t get sold unexpectedly
b) send a money order or a bank check, wire transfer, or phone in your credit
card information c) we will ship via UPS and you will have 3 days from delivery
to simply let us know if, for any reason, you don’t like the piece. Following 3 days
from delivery if we haven’t heard from you the sale is considered “final”. If you are
returning it, call us to let us know. When returned via UPS in the same condition
as received, we will refund the instrument’s price, excluding shipping. “Wire funds
from your bank to our bank in Staten Island, New York after requesting complete
Wire Transfer information.”
Mail Order Purchases (only) Come with 3-day Approval.
Purchases made in our showroom are "Final Sale" and instruments cannot be
returned. Approval applies only when you order an instrument sight unseen. A new
instrument and carrying case, shipped on approval must remain factory original,
including all papers, warranties and tags, and can in no way be altered. If altered
(strap pin, pickup, etc.) approval privilege does not apply, nor does it apply to special
or custom orders, delayed payments or layaways.
RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL
If you would like to reserve any instrument which is presently on back order with
a manufacturer, you may do so simply by mailing in a check or phoning in a $100
credit card debit as “right of first refusal” deposit, which is fully refundable any time
you like, prior to your actually approving the instrument. We will notify you when
the piece you have chosen arrives, and even then you can still decide whether
you wish to take delivery or let this one pass and wait for another one, or get your
$100 back. One more thing, and that’s that if the manufacturer has a price increase
between the time you’ve left a deposit and the time we receive the instrument, your
price is subject to change accordingly (except custom orders by contract).

MANDOLIN BROTHERS, LTD. Mandolin Brothers, Ltd. has a world-wide reputation for stocking only the finest
original condition, mint, near mint, and excellent condition vintage instruments (pre
1970). lf you wish to have us handle the sale of an item that you presently own,
we are glad to do so. We provide shipping instructions and pre-addressed labels
to enable you to ship to us safely. Phone (718) 981-3226 or 981-8585 to discuss
potential consignments. We reserve the right to accept for sale only those instruments
deemed acceptable to us, as regards to brand, style, condition and originality.
APPRAISALS
Mandolin Brothers, Ltd. is recognized as one of the foremost authorities
on American vintage fretted instruments. We are recommended by major
manufacturers, including Gibson, Martin, Fender, Rickenbacker, Gretsch, Guild,
Ovation, National, Dobro, D’Angelico, D’Aquisto, and dozens more as a premiere
source of accurate valuations. Mandolin Brothers can appraise your instrument
either by personal inspection or by mail. If you prefer a personal inspection
(essential in the case of certain pieces where our seeing in person to determine
originality is required) you may bring the instrument in or ship it to us. If you
wish to bring it in, you can find travel directions on our website.
1. Email appraisals – from photographs and the owners’ description . . . $50 per
item. Not every piece can be evaluated this way and we reserve the right to demur
in taking on such an evaluation if it absolutely has to be seen and examined.
2. Showroom appraisals of instruments such as acoustic guitars or
mandolins. Such pieces cannot generally be "taken apart" (as an electric guitar
can) and so less time is involved in “vetting” them. . . $100 per item.
3. Showroom appraisals of instruments that must be examined inside
and out, and fully annotated, including vintage Fender and Gibson electrics,
prewar flathead Gibson Mastertone banjos, and other instruments that could
conceivably have suffered substitution or alteration of parts, components,
wiring, routing, refinishing or overspray. These require the full forensic analysis
that only our repair shop can provide, involving copious notes and a lengthy
written description . . . $150 per item.
REPAIR SHOP
Our shop is equipped and staffed to meet your fretted instrument repair needs,
including: set-ups, neck resets, refrets, fret dressing, bridges, tremolos, saddles,
nuts, pickups, wiring, body, neck and headstock cracks, seam separations and
other structural or cosmetic problems. Free estimates will be cheerfully provided.
SALES TAX
At this time, we are not required to collect sales tax on an out of state shipment
Certain states (NJ and CT among them) do require individuals to submit their
local tax to their State Treasurer voluntarily. Until the Federal Government
makes legislative changes which would permit individual states to force distant
merchants to collect such taxes from their citizens, we will not change our policy.
Residents of NY State must add 8.875% (or your local assessment) for sales tax.
Gift Certificates
Gift Certificates are available and can be redeemed for merchandise or services
without time limit. Gift Certificates are not redeemable for cash.
