NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Guild X-170 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Amber, 1985

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Guild X-170 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Amber, 1985

This first-year Guild X-170 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Amber is in good condition. The model seems to have gained the name ‘Mini-Manhattan’ shortly after this one was labelled. It is missing its pickguard and has a replacement compensated ebony bridge and saddle. The original Guild pickups, instantly recognisable with a three-screw adjustment system and two raised areas on the covers, have been replaced with Seymour Duncan units. All the metal parts are gold plated, and the original etched Guild harp tailpiece is in good shape. The strap pins have been replaced with Schaller style strap lock units.

SOLD!!! Gibson ES-339 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Cherry Red 2011

SOLD!!! Gibson ES-339 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Cherry Red 2011

This is an excellent condition Gibson ES-339, this one in traditional Cherry Red and built during 2010 at the Nashville Custom Shop!  The original hard shell case and Certificate of Authenticity are included. The serial number here specifies that this ES-339 was built at Gibson Memphis Custom Shop in 2010. As a note about the serial numbering – Custom Shop serials don’t follow the rest of the company’s model. At this point the serial used CS plus six digits. The first digit is the year, starting in 2010, and the second digit is the location, with 5 being Memphis and 0 being Nashville.

Gibson ES-339 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Ebony 2011

Gibson ES-339 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Ebony 2011

The Gibson ES-339 uses a smaller 335 style body that was a hit from its introduction in 1996 as the ES-336. It gives all the tonal richness and versatility of the full-size ES-335, but in a more compact package. This ES-339 was built at Gibson Memphis Custom Shop in 2011. As a note about the serial numbering – Custom Shop serials don’t follow the rest of the company’s model. At this point the serial used CS plus six digits. The first digit is the year, starting in 2010, and the second digit is the location, with 5 being Memphis. So, this is a 2011 model from Memphis.

SOLD!!! Ibanez AM-205 Stagemaster Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1982

SOLD!!! Ibanez AM-205 Stagemaster Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1982

The Ibanez AM-205 Stagemaster looks like it could be inspired by the Gibson ES-339, with its smaller body and ES thinline construction, but it predates the Gibson model by about fifteen years. While its first catalog appearance was in 1983, this AM-205 Stagemaster carries a serial number indicating September 1982 production.

SOLD!!! Gretsch White Falcon G6126TLH Left Handed Archtop, 2005

SOLD!!! Gretsch White Falcon G6126TLH Left Handed Archtop, 2005

It’s unusual enough to run across the Gretsch White Falcon, but to see one with 1950’s style Trestle bracing AND Left Handed is another thing entirely! Originally created as a showpiece for the annual winter 1955 NAMM music trade show in Anaheim, California, the Gretsch White Falcon received an unexpected level of interest – and orders.

SOLD!!! Kay Pro K172 B Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Honey Blonde, 1956

SOLD!!! Kay Pro K172 B Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Honey Blonde, 1956

Here is a real treat – a mid 1950’s Kay Pro K172-B thinline archtop electric guitar in a relatively rare blonde finish. During the 1950’s the electric guitar became increasingly popular and manufacturers like Kay stepped up to satisfy booming demand. The Kay Pro K172 B is largely maple. The top and back are nicely figured maple laminate pressed into an arched contour and the sides are the same material. The neck is solid maple, one piece, with bound rosewood fingerboard. The bridge and headplate are also rosewood. Interestingly, the block position markers are Mother of Pearl, not plastic.
