Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop Electric Natural, 1991

Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop Electric Natural, 1991

The Gibson Byrdland thinline archtop electric appeared in 1955 and represents a functional adaptation to traditional archtop electrics. Two top Nashville session players, Billy Byrd and Hank Garland were approached by the Gibson president, Ted McCarty for ideas on new products. As busy players, Byrd and Garland wanted a shorter scale length of 23.5 inches to allow complex, extended chord shapes.

‼Reduced‼ Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Signature Artist Proof #2 White, 2017

‼Reduced‼  Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Signature Artist Proof #2 White, 2017

he Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Artist Proof #2 is the second of three production proof models built, before the design went to the regular line. All three of these guitars were personally approved by Alex Lifeson.  Alex Lifeson is one of the most recognised rock guitarists, having spent his career with his band Rush. I am reminded of my high school days, seeing Rush perform in the school cafeteria on a stage made of folded tables; this was a long time ago and shows how dedicated Rush has been to working hard.

Godin A5 Fretless 5-String Bass Natural 2006

Godin A5 Fretless 5-String Bass Natural 2006

The Godin fretless 5-string Bass body is made of two pieces of silver leaf maple, chambered and capped with spruce. The neck bolts on, and uses rock maple plus an ebony fingerboard on the fretless version. The Fretted version gets a rosewood fingerboard. The bridge matches the fingerboard, and on this older example uses an acoustic-guitar style pin bridge. Godin is very well acquainted with using piezo pickups and have devised a very usable and unobtrusive control layout next to the fingerboard. Access to the battery for the preamp is on the back.

Guild Songbird Thin Body Acoustic Electric Black, 1990

Guild Songbird Thin Body Acoustic Electric Black, 1990

Designed by George Gruhn with the staff at Guild, built from 1984 to 1991, this thin-bodied acoustic electric guitar has an under-saddle pickup with controls on the side. These are common features now, but at the time they were groundbreaking. The Guild Songbird Thin Body Acoustic Electric features a spruce top paired with mahogany for the body and neck, and rosewood for the fingerboard. The Fishman Transducer is coupled with side-mounted controls featuring a four-band EQ, volume control, and phase switch. Helpfully, there is an LED indicator for the battery being engaged, or low, and it’s always good to have warning of a low battery. The standard 9v battery compartment is easily accessible on the back of the guitar. Tuners are gold-plated Grover Roto-Matics and work well.

Fender Telecaster Thinline Guitar Natural, 1978

Fender Telecaster Thinline Guitar Natural, 1978

Here we have a 1978 Fender Telecaster Thinline, from the second variation produced 1972-1980 at Fullerton, California. For this version the stock Tele pickup set is replaced with a pair of original design, humbucking pickups designed by Seth Lover, and the ‘Ashtray’ bridge shifts to the ‘Hardtail’ model like that found on trem-less Strats. The pickguard has been enlarged to enclose the bridge pickup. This example carries the classic one-piece Fender Maple Neck, with Schaller-designed tuners and the innovative Micro-Tilt 3-bolt neck attachment.
