Gretsch Country Club 6195 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1960

Gretsch Country Club 6195 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1960

This 1960 model Gretsch Country Club, with the trestle braced thinner body. The serial number grouping indicates an early part of the year, though the dates are not certain. There is some uncertainty as to the model number, because the stamp on the label is very faded. At this point, the Country Club used the designation 619x, with the ‘x’ indicating the finish colour. The most common variations are 6192 (sunburst), 6193 (natural) and 6196 (Cadillac Green). We read the last digit of the label as a 5, which can mean a custom order.

Eastman AR805CE Cutaway Archtop Guitar, Sunburst 2006

Eastman AR805CE Cutaway Archtop Guitar, Sunburst 2006

The Eastman AR805CE archtop is a high quality archtop guitar sporting a cutaway and traditional neck-mount pickup, with controls on the pickguard so the solid spruce top is not restricted by extra hardware. Hearkening back to the days of archtop supremacy, the AR805CE uses a 16 inch wide, 3.25 inch deep body built with solid woods – carved solid spruce for the top, carved solid maple for the back, and maple for the sides and neck.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Translucent Red, 2001

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Translucent Red,  2001

The Gibson Chet Atkins Country Gentleman was built from 1986 to 2005, but Gibson’s association with Chet Atkins began in 1981 with the CEC Cutaway Electric Classical. While most of the Chet Atkins Country Gentleman guitars were made by Gretsch, that was impossible after 1981 when Gretsch temporarily folded. Gibson stepped in to work with Atkins, and produced a number of excellent, and ground-breaking instruments.

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.
