Acoustic Steel String

SOLD!!! Gibson SJ-100 Jumbo Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2013

SOLD!!! Gibson SJ-100 Jumbo Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2013

The Gibson SJ-100 hearkens back to the early Super Jumbo flat-tops built between 1939 and 1943. While it shares the body shape of the famous J-200, it has modest decoration and most importantly, uses Mahogany instead of Maple for the back, sides and neck. The tops are with Indian Rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge on both versions.

SOLD!!! Bourgeois Slope D Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2003

SOLD!!! Bourgeois Slope D Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2003

Bourgeois guitars also tend to have relatively high neck angles, so there is more saddles exposed. In the short term, this means a bit more volume from the steeper angle of the string back to the pin. In the long term, it means that the guitar isn’t likely to need a neck reset for quite some time. Most steel string guitars will over time require a reset, and this can be an expensive proposition. Bourgeois seems to be taking a longer view with the higher angle.

C. F. Martin 000-45 Steel String Guitar, 1942

C. F. Martin 000-45 Steel String Guitar, 1942

In terms of provenance, this guitar has had three owners and was used in a popular band during the 1950s. It has had an amount of work over the decades, some of it significant. One side appears to have been replaced, and the top has had a section replaced. This work was done very cleanly and may have been performed by Martin at their factory, though they have no record of it. Recently, in our shop, it has been refretted, had the first-position mother of pearl snowflake marker replaced, and received a full set up. It plays very well, and has a full, rich, even tone. The tonal nature of Brazilian Rosewood (denser than Indian) is evident in an slight added clarity.

Taylor Baritone-6 CW Acoustic Guitar, 2006

Taylor Baritone-6 CW Acoustic Guitar, 2006

Taylor baritone guitars are designed for playing in a lower register with normal string tension, thanks to a longer 27-inch scale length. Tuned to B (B E A D F# B), the deeper acoustic tone is voiced with the GS body shape and a wood combination of either Indian rosewood or mahogany with Sitka spruce. The deeper tonal voice will appeal to singer-songwriters and other players who favor playing in a lower register. The baritone also blends well with other instruments, adding a different sonic texture to create a rich, ensemble sound.
