This Goya T-Style guitar is a decent copy, though not exact. Unusually, it is complete and original, with the ‘Ashtray’ bridge cover and the original hard shell case. The body is Ash, and the neck is Maple, but the fingerboard is a separate Maple slab.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean Wine Red, 1996

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean Wine Red, 1996

The late, great Chet Atkins was closely associated with Gretsch guitars, but after Gretsch closed models like the Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean appeared. The Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean is a single cutaway, thinline archtop electric, with a solid center block to deter feedback. This was a feature that Chet had long sought from Gretsch, and the closest they would come to that was the late 1950’s Trestle bracing. In structure, this model has many similarities to Gibson ES thinline semi-hollows.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson ES-137 Thinline BlueBurst, 2006

Introduced in Nashville during 2002, the Gibson ES-137 thinline is intended to combine two of Gibson’s most successful designs – the resonance of the thinline archtop ES models, and the solidity of the Les Paul classic. However, this instrument is thicker than a thinline model, and uses mahogany instead of maple for the center block. Bringing together the Florentine cutaway, arch top body with the solid mahogany center block, and using most of the hardware from a Les Paul including the pickups, tune-a-matic bridge and stop tailpiece, the ES-137 thinline is a very versatile guitar.

PRS Santana MD Multi-Dimensional Amber, 2008

PRS Santana MD Multi-Dimensional Amber, 2008

In 2008, the PRS Santana MD was released – the MD standing for ‘multi dimensional’. The key difference is in the wiring – there’s an extra switch that enables the ‘Multidimensional Voice Control’ circuit, allowing a range of new tones. In the ‘off’ position, the controls work as standard master volume and tone controls. The PRS MD circuit is powered by a pair of standard 9v batteries, but if the batteries are not used or lose enough charge, the switch will silence the guitar, rather like a standby or kill-switch.

Introduced in 1980, the G&L L-2000 bass was one of Leo Fender’s last bass designs.   The first was the 1953 Fender Precision Bass and it’s hard to overstate its influence on how music is presented.  This example dates to 2016 at the G&L shop on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, and is in very good, clean original condition. It plays well, and the finish and frets have very little wear.

Introduced during 1973 and built until 1979 – the Norlin era – the Gibson Les Paul Signature Thinline Gold Top, is a rarity, and as a guitar has never been re-issued in any form. We have seen in-person one other example, during the 1980s, in The Twelfth Fret repair shop. Approximately 1,400 Gold Top models were built, and under 100 in Sunburst. It was also available as a bass. This model uses the construction of an ES-335, but its asymmetrical body has approximately the top half of a 335 and the bottom half of a Les Paul.

Around 1957, Gibson was looking to update its product line to address a number of issues, one of which was the rise in amplified stage volumes causing feedback. While the engineering team is credited with most of the design, it was apparently president Ted McCarty’s idea to put a solid Maple block through the center of the guitar.

Eastman SB59V Single Cutaway Solidbody Electric, Amber

Eastman SB59V Single Cutaway Solidbody Electric, Amber

Though unequivocally drawn from the classic Les Paul design and in particular the most desirable 1959 models, the Eastman SB59V is not a slavish copy. Many visual differences are clear, including the shapes of the headstock and cutaway. The body is constructed of a carved, Flame maple top laminated to a one-piece Mahogany slab body. A Mahogany neck with a bound Ebony fingerboard is attached via a longish tenon joint. The neck has a vintage style ‘V’ profile.

Gibson Les Paul Tribute Satin Cherry Sunburst

Gibson Les Paul Tribute Satin Cherry Sunburst

The Gibson Les Paul Tribute is a guitar that both respects its lineage and uses some modern design elements to produce a cool vibe and playing experience. This particular guitar features a Cherry Sunburst with satin nitrocellulose finish. The satin finish looks great and will help to not show finger print smudges from playing. Another great feature on the Gibson Les Paul Tribute is the Ultra modern weight relief. This process retains a solid core of mahogany under the maple cap while chambering around the perimeter. The provided weight relief is substantial and really lightens the load on your shoulder when playing for longer periods of time. Unlike a full chambered design the solid core limits the effect on the overall tone.
