“Every guitarist should have one of these, it’s so much fun.” – Paul Heumiller
Lame Horse Gitjo
The Lamehorse Gitjo, by Jeremy Jenkins, was made to offer guitarist a chance to make that banjo twang. The six string banjo is not a new concept, however this Lame Horse Gitjo is full of style and has a sound everyone loves. The tone ring is crafted from superbly figured Sapelle and Maple with a lovely Diamond pattern ring. The multi piece neck meets the body via a thick brass plate that add wonderful sustain and power. This is a really fun instrument that will give you a whole other sound on stage, in the studio or on your front porch. From Blues to Old Time to Celtic you’ll love having this in your arsenal.
“We guitarists need a change of pace once and a while and here you go. A 6 string banjo of high quality and tone and absolutely beautiful woods. “ – Paul Heumiller
Bishline Banjos Custom 6 String Banjo
Here we have a custom 6 String Banjo from Rob Bishline. This beauty features stunning Walnut Burl for the resonator, Walnut neck and Lacewood bindings on the neck and body. Just stunning! The scale is a short 24″ that is easy to play. This Guitar-Banjo is very loud and strong. Perfect for the guitarist looking to add another color to his/her music and a great for bands to add that barbaric twang!

Jumbo and #532 (scroll down)
In 1982, world-renowned luthier Jimmy D’Aquisto built a rare and exceptional nylon string guitar. Thought to be only 1 of 3 in existence, and the only fully functional example, this extraordinary instrument was exquisite in tone, playability, and design. All who played it at Dream Guitars were in agreement that it was one of the finest crossover guitars in existence. Sadly, as with most treasures, the D’Aquisto nylon string was well beyond the means of the average player.
So when our friend and luthier James Condino blueprinted the D’Aquisto nylon for the Guild of American Luthiers , we struck upon the idea of commissioning a guitar built on the plans by another celebrated luthier - Dake Traphagen. The idea was to build a no-compromise representation of the D’Aquisto original, but at an affordable price. What resulted is even beyond our highest expectations! For a detailed description please call Paul or Steven at (828) 658-9795.
- Top – German Spruce
- Back & Sides – European flamed maple
- Neck – Honduran Mahogany ( the old real stuff)
- Fret Board – Ebony
- Bridge – Brazilian Rosewood
- Tuners – Schaller
- Finish – Spirit varnish
We just received this extraordinary 1965 Fender Strat from the son of the original owner. The guitar is in great shape and has all the vintage Strat mojo one could ask for – insanely great tone! Don’t miss this one!!! It’s a vintage collector’s dream! (This guitar is now sold)
Just in 03/13/12: We just received this wonderful new Tippin Staccato! More photos to follow soon.
When Bill Tippin sent the following photos of his incoming Staccato model (now arrived) – I was blown away by its elegance and by the natural beauty of the wood. Bill’s idea was to make this guitar with refined simplicity, maximizing superb tone, in an instrument that had understated aesthetic charms.
Featuring extremely fine Cuban Mahogany back and sides, this guitar promises to be exactly what Mr. Tippin intended. If you’d like to learn more about this cool new Tippin Staccato please call. It is arriving next week, and will not last long.
Please note: in some of the following photos, Bill applied Naptha to portions of the wood (which does no harm ) to give an approximation of how the color will appear when finish is applied.
