Eastman AR805CE Cutaway Archtop Guitar, Sunburst 2006

Eastman AR805CE Cutaway Archtop Guitar, Sunburst 2006

The Eastman AR805CE archtop is a high quality archtop guitar sporting a cutaway and traditional neck-mount pickup, with controls on the pickguard so the solid spruce top is not restricted by extra hardware. Hearkening back to the days of archtop supremacy, the AR805CE uses a 16 inch wide, 3.25 inch deep body built with solid woods – carved solid spruce for the top, carved solid maple for the back, and maple for the sides and neck.

Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1986

Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1986

The Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS is still in production as are other versions of the model, and they are as practical as when introduced. This model features two ‘floating’ mini-humbucking pickups, one attached to the fingerboard tag and the other to the pickguard. Neither contacts the top though the pickguard has a small support post. In the 1980s, the great Jazz guitarist George Benson entered into a collaboration with Ibanez to produce a series of signature archtop electric guitars, including the GB10 and its fancier sisters.

Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1983

Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1983

In the 1980s, the great Jazz guitarist George Benson entered into a collaboration with Ibanez to produce a series of signature archtop electric guitars, including the Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS and its fancier sisters. These guitars were immediately popular with other jazz players, because the design addresses real needs. The body is comfortably compact, and while its hollow, F-hole body design provides real archtop resonance, responsiveness and ‘thump’, the solid spruce top is carved to dramatically reduce feedback at performance volumes.

Guild X-170 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Amber, 1985

Guild X-170 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Amber, 1985

This first-year Guild X-170 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Amber is in good condition. The model seems to have gained the name ‘Mini-Manhattan’ shortly after this one was labelled. It is missing its pickguard and has a replacement compensated ebony bridge and saddle. The original Guild pickups, instantly recognisable with a three-screw adjustment system and two raised areas on the covers, have been replaced with Seymour Duncan units. All the metal parts are gold plated, and the original etched Guild harp tailpiece is in good shape. The strap pins have been replaced with Schaller style strap lock units.
