Standel DB Original Dobro Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, 1963

Standel DB Original Dobro Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, 1963

This Standel DB Original square neck dates to perhaps 1963. As discussed below, production of the DB Original guitars began in 1959, but the Standel company didn’t get involved till 1962. The Standel decal could not have gone on this guitar before 1962, and this arrangement lasted for at most three years. While it’s possible that this guitar was built before the Standel deal took effect, we’re placing it around 1963. Construction is typical Dopyera – the bodies are laminate, because the resonator cone is the sound source.

‼️Reduced‼️ Tim Reede Custom OM Palo Escrito Steel String Guitar, 2016

‼️Reduced‼️  Tim Reede Custom OM Palo Escrito Steel String Guitar, 2016

Tim Reede’s instruments are demonstrations of his skill and craftsmanship, and also of his understanding of what a guitar needs – an understanding comes from actually playing them. Here we have a Tim Reed Palo OM, built during 2017 at Reede’s shop in Minneapolis using bearclaw spruce, likely Sitka, for the top, Palo Escrito for the sides and back, and a 5-piece neck of mahogany, walnut and maple. The headplate, fingerboard and bridge are Indian Rosewood with bone for the nut and saddle. The top features a very blue Abalone rosette. Tuners are Gotoh 510 models, very smooth and accurate.

Duesenberg Starplayer Special Creme and Black, 2002

Duesenberg Starplayer Special Creme and Black, 2002

Introduced in 2002, the Duesenberg Starplayer Special uses the classic bolt-on design, with a full 25.5 inch scale maple neck on and alder body with humbucking pickups. The neck sports an Indian Rosewood fingerboard,  with Mother of Pearl dot inlays.  It is a straightforward guitar, delivering exactly what it advertises. This early Duesenberg Starplayer Special, built during 2002 – the first year of production – is in very clean, all original condition. It plays very well and has just the slightest wear, even to the frets. The original Duesenberg hard shell case is included.

Collings 001 Mh Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 2012

Collings 001 Mh Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 2012

The Collings 001 is based on a very traditional design that’s been a standard for over a century, and this example is built with Mahogany for the top, back and sides.  This fine guitar was built in Austin, Texas during 2012. Like every Collings we’ve seen, the build quality is exceptional, with excellent playability and great tone. It is good condition, and we’d rate and price it higher except that there is some subtle finish marking, visible only from close up – from more than a foot away, it’s nearly impossible to see it and doesn’t really show in the photos.
