❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-339 Thinline Custom Shop Cherry, 2008

The Gibson ES-339 was a hit from its introduction in 2007 using the concept and classic lines of the ES-335, but with a scaled down body. All of the other features line up between the two models – the scale lengths, neck sizes and hardware are the same. The build quality is identical, with Maple laminates for the body, Mahogany for the neck and a Rosewood fingerboard. The headstock logos and position markers are Mother of Pearl.

‼Reduced‼ Gibson ES-5 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1949

❌ SOLD ❌ Michael A Lewis 'Le Petite Rougette' Archtop Guitar Red, 2009

Michael A Lewis builds very high quality archtop guitars and mandolins in his Grass Valley, California workshop. For a time, Lewis built authorized replicas of D’Angelico instruments though this arrangement has come to an end. He builds largely to order, though some instruments are available from stock. Built for the 2009 Montreal Guitar Show as part of the ‘Red Collection’, this Michael A Lewis ‘Le Petite Rougette’ archtop is an excellent illustration of Lewis’s skill. Fully acoustic with an Bartolini jazz pickup mounted to the fingerboard and pickup, this guitar is in excellent condition.
