Our customer of the day is Jacob Barker. Jacob is 12 years old and he's got the guitar bug bad. He specialises in White Stripes riffs. Like most kids he has slugged it out for years on an old nylon string. Today he was rewarded with his first new guitar - a great little Martin Dreadnought Junior. Congratulations Jacob...welcome to the Martin club!
New to stock...a glorious Santa Cruz OM-Grand. Fast becoming our best-selling model, the OMG is the bigger, lusher, louder sister to the standard OM. We've had plenty of these guitars in stock before but this is the first we've ordered in sunburst. An absolute stunner. $7,799
Heres a taste of the Waterloo WL-14. X-braced and handmade from Spruce and Mahogany, the WL-14 is bright and punchy with a great old-worldly tone. In stock! #collingsguitars #waterlooguitars #handmade #americanmade #boutiquetones
This simply stunning custom OM by Santa Cruz is one of the highest spec'd we've seen to date. Entirely handmade from Moon Spruce and Cocobolo, it also features Adirondack bracing and hide glue construction. A masterpiece! It is currently on the way to it's new home in Brisbane.
Unopened boxes don't get much more exciting. Thank you as always Santa Cruz Guitar.
Today's episode of 'What's That, Josh?' looks at a killer new guitar from our friends at Maton. (Don't tell anyone but it's kinda electric!!).

Our customer of the day is Sharon Latocha. Sharon came in today to get a new guitar to reward herself for all the hard work and practice she's been putting in. She was thinking she'd go for a small body but when she played this Maton dreadnought and felt the deeper tone, it was all over! Congratulations Sharon and great choice. All the best with your beautiful new baby!
The beautiful FL2EC-COLB is one of the best sounding Cole Clark models we've heard. It comes with a solid Cedar of Lebanon soundboard (the original Cedar tonewood) along with solid Blackwood back and sides. $2,249.
If you only get one spare minute in the day, spend it playing a Guild X-175B Manhattan through a Fender Vibrolux.
Our customer of the day is Natalie McKinnon. Everybody wish Natalie a happy birthday - she turns 18 today! Natalie comes from a family of guitar players. Her Dad and her brother brought her in today to pick the guitar of her dreams. She tried Taylors, Martins, Cole Clarks and more but the trusty Maton 808 Performer won out. Beautifully done, Natalie...happy birthday!

So what does a D-28 sound like? We pull the legendary Martin model down off the wall and give it a little strum.
Just arrived...an incredibly sweet preowned Collings O1SB. The O is Collings' smallest standard guitar size and has the same shorter scale as the 12-fret OO. Although measuring only 13.5 inches wide, the Spruce/Mahogany O1SB has a tone and volume that belies it's small stature. It can double as a travel guitar or a small OM which really comes to life when mic'd in the studio. Comes with a D-Tar Wavelength pickup system with external battery box and a Collings hard case. $4,299.
This is a stunning preowned Taylor Custom Grand Auditorium. We can't remember ever seeing Walnut as figured as this before. Paired with an Adirondack top, this guitar is an absolute showstopper in both tone and appearance. Build in 2012, this model is a complete one-off and is in excellent condition. $5,699.
