Gibson ES-175 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1991

Gibson ES-175 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1991

The Gibson ES-175 archtop electric was in production from 1949 until 2017, because it does exactly what many jazz and rock guitarists needed it to do. Comfortable and reliable, the ES-175 delivers a rich tone and its laminate construction makes it feedback resistant, compared to carved solid top models. To that point, it did appear on large, higher volume rock stages, notably in the hands of Steve Howe of Yes. It was also a common choice for early rock and rockabilly artists.

Gibson ES-335TD Thinline Electric Guitar Walnut, 1975

Gibson ES-335TD Thinline Electric Guitar Walnut, 1975

The Gibson ES-335TD was an immediate hit at its 1958 introduction as a thinline, two pickup, double cutaway archtop electric. It addressed many of the needs professional guitarists had dealing with ever-increasing stage volumes while retaining the classic archtop tone profile. Over the years, the specs have changed somewhat, but the model has remained in constant production and has been seen and heard on countless stages and studios.

Sold! Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Olympic White, 2006

Sold!  Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Olympic White, 2006

The Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster, here as an Olympic White 2006 custom shop build, recognizes Beck’s needs for sonic versatility and tuning stability. Unusually for top flight rock players, Jeff Beck plays fingerstyle, without picks, and his heavy use of the trem bridge is part of his unmistakable sound. In the mid 1960’s, Jeff Beck was one of three top English players closely associated with the Telecaster – Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page were the other two.
