We three kings...

If we could say that we would but in this case you're looking at two Bessons and one Bach. Rare trumpets in exceptionally clean, near mint condition for heralding in the holidays or other pursuits.

You may have seen this instrument on our facebook page but we thought it was worth a mention here, as well:







Ariel Rose Bodman has handcrafted for us this gorgeous tenor sized ukulele out of Tasmanian Tiger Myrtle (with matching binding), Wester Red 'Sinker' Cedar, mahogany neck, with ebony fretboard and bridge.
We've unofficially named it the 'Tiger Rose'. If you're interested in a
truly unique, one-of-a-kind gift for the holidays this custom uke should be
high on your list-amazing!

From top to bottom, the lovely Taylor K14CE 'Builder's Edition' bedecked in all it's livery, including solid figured Koa back and sides, 'vine inlays' on the fretboard and a torrefied (read gently roasted) spruce top, beveled inset armrest, and of course Taylor's unique 'V-Class' bracing. If you've been very, very, VERY good this year someone might surprise you with this beauty for the holidays! 


It's clear you can see the festive nature of Gold Tone's new 'Little Gem;
banjo ukulele! Not just clear but a few other tones which we can order
for you. This one may disappear before you know it...
