Gibson ES-335 ‘Rich Robinson’ 471 of 500 Cherry, 2014

Gibson ES-335 'Rich Robinson' 471 of 500 Cherry, 2014

Built at the Gibson Memphis plant, the Gibson ES-335 Rich Robinson is very much like a ‘new’ 1963 model. The ‘Custom Made’ plaque on the body was frequently used to cover stop-tailpiece collars when a Bigsby was installed, either at the factory or after purchase. The cherry finish very common in that era, and the metal parts have gone through a ‘VOS’ aging process to simulate natural oxidization.

The Maple neck is short scale – 30.3 inch or 770mm – and has a bound Rosewood fingerboard, plus a dual-action truss rod.

Gretsch ’59 Silver Jet G6129T-59 Silver Sparkle

Gretsch '59 Silver Jet G6129T-59 Silver Sparkle

The Gretsch ’59 Silver Jet is a very cool guitar, with all the late-50’s trappings – Bigsby, TV Jones Classic Filter’Tron based pickups, and a standout silver sparkle finish! The Gretsch Jet is an under-rated guitar, but has appeared on many hit recordings. Chet Atkins used one on many classic recordings, and the first few Beatles albums feature George Harrison with his Jet.

Gibson ES-345TD ‘Domenic Troiano’ Electric Thinline, Cherry, 1960

Gibson ES-345TD 'Domenic Troiano' Electric Thinline, Cherry, 1960

This Gibson ES-345TD was built during 1960 at the historic Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It has its original PAF pickups, and the Varitone has been disconnected. The bridge has been changed to a later ABR patent number bridge. It has been refretted – no fretwire could withstand the amount of use this guitar received. It’s very likely it was refretted at The Twelfth Fret.
