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.

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.

SOLD! Guild F412 Jumbo Maple 12-String Guitar Natural, 2013

SOLD!  Guild F412 Jumbo Maple 12-String Guitar Natural, 2013

The Guild F412 has been near the top of the line for 12 string guitars, with a jumbo body and a huge sound. The F-412 and its mate, the Guild F-512 mainly differ in woods used for the sides and back – the F412 uses flamed maple and the F512 Indian Rosewood. The F412 Maple version will tend to have a brighter sound with a tighter focus on the high end, while the F512 Rosewood will be warmer and focus in a slightly lower range.
This Guild F412 dates to 2013 and was built in New Haven, Connecticut. It’s in very good condition with little wear. It’s bright, clear and well defined. This is a guitar you can really dig into.
