Ibanez JSM100 John Scofield Model Thinline Sunburst, 2009

Ibanez JSM100 John Scofield Model Thinline Sunburst, 2009

The Ibanez JSM100 uses the same construction concept as other ES models, but the wood choice is a bit different. The body, instead of using Maple laminate, uses figured Anigre, an African hardwood, for the laminate. The center block is Maple, as is the neck, which has an Ebony fingerboard. Decoration is similar to other Ibanez models in this range; hardware is gold plated, and the inlays include a mix of Abalone and Acrylic for the block markers on the bound, compound radius fingerboard.

Rickenbacker 330/12 Thinline Electric 12 String Fireglo, 1987

Rickenbacker 330/12 Thinline Electric 12 String Fireglo, 1987

Introduced in 1965 as a dressed down version of 1964’s groundbreaking 360/12, the Rickenbacker 330/12 was immediately popular. The 330 model guitars used the pointed horns and sharper corners of the early 360 models, but without binding body or neck binding and with dot instead of triangle position markers. In 1965, the 360 body shifted to a New Style, with rounded top edges and cutaway horns, and while this has been the most prominent body shape for the 360, the 330 and 330/12 have retained their original shape.

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.

Hofner 1961 Cavern Bass 500/1 Left Handed Sunburst, 2015

Hofner 1961 Cavern Bass 500/1 Left Handed Sunburst, 2015

The Hofner 1961 Cavern bass was very popular in Europe during the late 1950s and early 1960’s. American built instruments were rare and expensive, and use by wildly successful bands such as The Beatles made everyone want one. At the time, the tiny Cavern Club in London was one of the key venues for aspiring bands to appear, and The Beatles played there so often the club name became closely associated with the band.
