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

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.

SOLD!!!! Gretsch G6120RHH Reverend Horton Heat Archtop Guitar, 2005

SOLD!!!! Gretsch G6120RHH Reverend Horton Heat Archtop Guitar, 2005

Here’s one we don’t see very often – a Gretsch G6120RHH Reverend Horton Heat Archtop signature model! This is based on a combination of 1955 6120 construction and 1958 style electronics. It has all the 1950’s Gretsch western decoration – the G-brand on the body, the Steer-head and cactus inlay set, 50’s style Bigsby arm and of course the Gretsch orange finish. It also has a couple of very modern upgrades – a pinned bridge and locking tuners for much faster string changes. This guitar is in all original condition and dates to November of 2005, the first year the Reverend Horton Heat signature model was available. It’s in very good condition and plays great.

SOLD!!! S S Stewart The Amateur Open Back Banjo, 1899

SOLD!!! S S Stewart The Amateur Open Back Banjo, 1899

Shown here is a lovely S S Stewart The Amateur Open Back Banjo, Grade 2 model, built around 1899 after Stewart’s death in April 1898.  The ‘Grade 2’ designation means that it’s a more advanced model, not that it’s a second.
This fine open-back banjo features the original tailpiece, friction tuners, a period Rogers calf skin head and standard dowel stick adjuster system. This is one of the few of these banjos we’ve seen that have all the original finish, hardware, tension hooks and name plaque complete and in place. Apparently the original owner, a Mr. AL M. Dodgson, carved his initials into the dowel stick — no doubt a hundred years ago or more.
