Gibson J-50 Koa Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 2007

Gibson J-50 Koa Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 2007

The J-50 appeared in 1942 as a ‘higher grade’ version of the J-45 and the Gibson J-50 Koa is a slight variation, with Sitka Spruce top and Hawaiian Koa for the back and sides, and an Ebony fingerboard and bridge.

The primary difference between the J-45 and the J-50 is the use of visually higher graded woods, allowing the J-45’s sunburst to be replaced with the J-50’s natural top.

Gibson J-45 Rosewood Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 2005

Gibson J-45 Rosewood Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 2005

The Gibson J-45, produced since 1942 with only one brief pause, is one of my favourite guitars. The round shoulder mahogany dreadnought body and spruce top produces a warm, rich tone that works really well with voice. From 1999 to 2006, Gibson produced a variant of the venerable J-45, the J-45 Rosewood using Indian Rosewood instead of mahogany with all the warmth of the original plus extra depth and power.

Linda Manzer Cutaway Steel String Guitar Natural 1980

Linda Manzer Cutaway Steel String Guitar Natural 1980

Here we are looking at a Linda Manzer cutaway steel string acoustic built during 1980 in Toronto. It features a concert body using Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the bridge and bound fingerboard. The nut and saddle are bone. Schaller tuning machines with ebony buttons are installed at the head, and a K&K pickup set has been installed to an endpin jack. This example features Abalone for the rosette and position markers – a mix of dots and a leaflet with stem. The top has a small thin clear plastic tap plate, an excellent idea that protects the top without hiding it.

Taylor 615 Jumbo Maple Steel String Guitar Natural, 1995

Taylor 615 Jumbo Maple Steel String Guitar Natural, 1995

The Taylor 615 jumbo Maple steel string guitar is unabashedly visually related to the most venerable of the Jumbo body acoustics, the Gibson J-200, from the oversize curves to the flame maple back and sides. In the form seen here, with no cutaway, the 615 was built from 1981 to 1998. At that point, it gained a cutaway and pickup and became the 615ce and was finally discontinued in 2011.

Sale! This Taylor 814ce using Brazilian Rosewood from late 2015, with full warranties and at a significant discount. , Brazilian Rosewood was regarded as the ultimate material for guitar bodies, delivering a warm, richly complex overtone structure with plenty of power. Eventually, overharvesting led to embargoes. It’s now rare to see any new guitars built with Brazilian Rosewood, due to heavy restrictions resulting from necessary conservation efforts. Many alternate materials are now being commonly used.
