SOLD!!! Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

SOLD!!! Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

The Gretsch G6120-1959LTV isn’t currently in production, but it represents the specs of the famous 1959 Gretsch Chet Atkins models, with lacquer finish, zero fret, Trestle bracing and TV Jones Classic pickups. Technically, this guitar isn’t a Chet Atkins model, as at time of construction Gretsch had not re-obtained the rights to the Atkins name. Still – the rest is the same. Based on a 16 inch wide, single cutaway body with sides 2.75 inches high.   It was originally built with a bracing system combining a pair of tone bars running the length of the body plus a sound post under the bridge, but in 1959 Gretsch added a ‘Trestle’ bracing system for Chet Atkins,  who was facing the common problem of hollow-body guitars feeding back at ever-increasing stage volumes.

SOLD!!! Parker Fly Deluxe Metallic Purple, 1998

SOLD!!! Parker Fly Deluxe Metallic Purple, 1998

Over the years many builders have tried to incorporate new materials into guitars, particularly carbon fibre. The Parker Fly may be the most successful effort to date. In production for over a decade, this model has proven to be reliable and versatile.  And it’s light!
Part of the success of The Parker Fly is that it doesn’t rely on all synthetic materials. Rather, it uses wooden cores with carbon fibre shells, allowing natural resonance, stability and durability. At the time this Parker Fly Deluxe was made in 1998, the neck and body cores were poplar; currently the neck core is mahogany.

Gibson ES-345 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1964

Gibson ES-345 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1964

The Gibson ES-345 is the middle range of Gibson’s ES Thinline series and first appeared in 1958, using the new Seth Lover designed Humbucking pickups.
It’s a real treat to see and play a relatively early model ES-345, this one built in 1964 at the Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and especially one in such good physical and playing condition. This guitar has been refretted and plays very nicely. The finish is in good condition, especially considering that it’s been played enough to require a refret; there is a fair amount of finish wear on the back of the neck between the 3rd and 7th positions to bare wood, but there are no dents or dings.

Gibson ES-5 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1949

Gibson ES-5 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1949

The Gibson ES-5 appeared in 1949 and was the first ES – Electric Spanish – guitar with three pickups.   Originally equipped only with rotary pots for volume and tone controls, this model was revised in 1955 as the ES-5 Switchmaster.     Using a full size cutaway archtop body made with maple laminates for feedback rejection, the original ES-5 had individual volume controls and one master tone control.   Depending on the pot rotation, you could have all three pickups at any blend level.
