    #1003 Gorgeous Terz 12 "Terzilla"

A beautiful chimey Terz 12-string, tuned A to A.. The Terz blends the full, wide sound of a guitar with the clean shimmer of a mandolin or bouzouki. The name comes from the classical "Terz" (Italian for "Third"), an instrument designed to be tuned up a third from a standard guitar. These shorter-scale classical instruments were designed to accompany and extend the range of standard-tuned guitars in ensemble playing.

The 13.5" wide lower bout and 3-7/8" thickness strike the perfect balance of compact comfort and acoustic volume.This little beast is shockingly loud for its modest size. The sound of the higher tuning and shorter scale (22") is powerful and complex - bursting with harmonics and 'cut', and perfect for layering over other guitars, doubling, or accompanying singers or instruments with a naturally higher range. With its fast, tight, and defined lower register and thick natural chorus, the Terz also excels for solo fingerstyle playing, particularly for the adventurous guitarist seeking something beyond just another standard 6-string.

    #997 Journeyman Electric Merlin

Small but powerful, the Merlin Electric shares the same scale and tuning as our Merlin Acoustic. Tuned E-E, a full octave higher than a standard guitar, this instrument is ideal for doubling and enriching a standard-tuned guitar part, and also stands alone beautifully on its own. See all our videos for this instrument on YouTube.

The full-range piezo pickup/preamp system delivers a shimmering, vibrant, and punchy acoustic-like tone with incredible detail and responsiveness conjuring mandolins, Cuban guitars, and even dulcimer and autoharp-like tones. Volume and Tone knobs simply and effectively provide a wide range of control.

With a voice much bigger than its small size, the Merlin electric is an ideal stage, touring, or recording companion. The full-octave-up tuning means that all chord shapes and note locations are identical to a standard-tuned guitar no transposing required. The 16.3" scale neck is comfortable and playable, and lets the player reach intervals that would be impossible on a typical guitar.

The Merlin is not just a "niche" instrument it's a powerful tool for songwriting and performance, which brings out new concepts and techniques from everyone that picks it up.

    #870 Journeyman Nylon - AAA flame top, gorgeous!

A beautiful example of our most current Journeyman Nylon design. With the glued on "tie-block" bridge and flat top, this guitar blends traditional design elements with modern features and playability.

Scale length is 25.5" The neck has a 20" radius fingerboard and 1 7/8" nut, which make it friendly and comfortable for the steel-string or electric guitarist, while still allowing room for expressive vibrato techniques and precise left-hand fingering.

The body is heavily chambered mahogany, and the end result is an exceptionally lightweight and lively guitar with an almost 'acoustic' feel - final weight is 5.2 lbs, comparable to many acoustic instruments!

The black-bound AAA flame top is striking under the tobacco sunburst finish, and stands out onstage with subtle class and sophistication.

Volume and Tone controls give this guitar a wide variety of plugged-in tones, and the full-range piezo system is extremely responsive to the colors and shadings of the player's touch and technique - just like a fine classical instrument.

Here's a quick clip to demonstrate this guitar:

A natural choice for stage playing, as well as jazz and bossa nova, this guitar delivers an authentic nylon-string sound and experience in a slim, rugged, and feedback-resistant package.

Available now for $3800, including gig bag.

    #828 Flyer 13

This is a beautiful example of our original 13" Flyer design.

Compact and comfy, this model has an endearing and unique tonality - perky, quick, and responsive, with echoes of resonators and Macaferris. The throaty, vocal-like midrange response and crisp trebles are excellent for complex fingerstyle or quick flatpicking, with excellent string separation and note definition. A full 25" scale and 22 fret neck plays just like a full size guitar.

This Flyer is in pristine condition, in a beautiful "Vintage Natural" tint that warms up the natural blonde colors of the maple box and spruce top. The warm golden-brown Pau Ferro fingerboard, bridge, and tailpiece perfectly accent the vibe.

Here's Mark Patton bluesing it up....

$3100, in practically like-new condition, including TKL hardshell case.

    #782 Terz 6-string Sitka/Mahogany

This is a killer Terz! The Terz 6 is a powerful and intriguing hybrid of many different concepts. Tuned up to the player's choice of G or A, the Terz blends the full, wide sound of a guitar with the clean shimmer of a mandolin or bouzouki.

Listen here to the great George Worthmore



The name comes from the classical "Terz" (Italian for "Third"), an instrument designed to be tuned up a third from a standard guitar. These shorter-scale classical instruments were designed to accompany and extend the range of standard-tuned guitars in ensemble playing.

    #762 Journeyman Baritone 12 string. Amazing!

Mahogany body and neck, quilted maple top, magnetic and piezo pickups. 26.1" scale length. The Journeyman series retains the feel, vibe and sound of an acoustic with a flat top, D-Tar piezo pickup, and Duncan magnetic. It has an acoustic-style pinless wooden bridge. Designed to be the ultimate stage and recording baritone, these instruments offer an extremely realistic acoustic tone, with added sustain and punch from the solid body. Without any of the feedback, fragility, and size of a traditional hollow body guitar, the Journeyman Baritone electric is the ideal choice for any amplified acoustic application. Our proprietary neck tilt mechanism unites the best aspects of acoustic and electric bridges, offering the tone of a fixed wooden bridge with the adjustability and serviceability of a metal system.

    #956 Flyer 14

Here's a lovely example of our Flyer 14" 6-string, in a very striking burst finish. This guitar has our favorite combination of mahogany back & sides, Sitka Spruce top, and Pau Ferro fingerboard, bridge, and tailpiece.

The 25" scale and 14" body offer the perfect blend of full-size guitar feel and tone, along with stage-and-travel-friendly compactness.

With firm but controlled low end, sweet trebles, and and impressively vocal-like midrange flavor, the Flyer 14" is ideal for fingerstyle, jazz and blues, and stage situations where a balanced and controllable sound is desirable.

This guitar is brand-new and ready for a home! New retail price is $4560 on this model. This guitar is available direct for $3800, with no lead time!

    #812 Paris 4-string MM- like-new and gorgeous!

This Paris 4-string is visually and sonically striking - it combines the vibe of an acoustic-style bass with a full dual-magnetic electric setup, making it an intriguing hybrid of both.

The mahogany body is capped with a bound Sitka Spruce top. The wooden bridge, large body chamber and soundhole emphasize the acoustic look and flavor.

Electronically, this bass is a departure from our typical Paris model, a pair of Citron HB magnetic pickups run through an Aguilar OBP-2 preamp with separate active controls for treble and bass.. This combination is fantastic for the full range of electric fretless tones, from "Jaco"-like focus to a deep, warm bloom.

This bass was a NAMM-show demo instrument from 2013. It is immaculate condition and looks beautiful. New price for a similar instrument would be around $4500+ including the soundhole/chamber option and body binding.

Take this beauty home for $3400!
