Baldwin Vibraslim Bass Semi-Hollow Sunburst, 1966

Baldwin Vibraslim Bass Semi-Hollow Sunburst, 1966

The Baldwin Vibraslim Bass was built between 1965 and 1970, but its first appearance was as a Burns model. Over time, the Baldwin label took prominence. This bass dates to around 1966 – the first Burns run had the controls mounted on the pickguard and had a more traditional tailpiece, which was replaced by the Rezo-Tube bridge.

SOLD!!! Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

SOLD!!! Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

The Gretsch G6120-1959LTV isn’t currently in production, but it represents the specs of the famous 1959 Gretsch Chet Atkins models, with lacquer finish, zero fret, Trestle bracing and TV Jones Classic pickups. Technically, this guitar isn’t a Chet Atkins model, as at time of construction Gretsch had not re-obtained the rights to the Atkins name. Still – the rest is the same. Based on a 16 inch wide, single cutaway body with sides 2.75 inches high.   It was originally built with a bracing system combining a pair of tone bars running the length of the body plus a sound post under the bridge, but in 1959 Gretsch added a ‘Trestle’ bracing system for Chet Atkins,  who was facing the common problem of hollow-body guitars feeding back at ever-increasing stage volumes.

SOLD!!! Gibson BB King Lucille Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1995

SOLD!!! Gibson BB King Lucille Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1995

The Gibson BB King Lucille was created for the very real needs of a constantly working guitarist dealing with the reality of stage volumes. BB King led a relatively large band, and tended to turn his amp to 10 and control volume from the guitar. This could easily result in wild feedback.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Gibson ES-345 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1964

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Gibson ES-345 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1964

The Gibson ES-345 is the middle range of Gibson’s ES Thinline series and first appeared in 1958, using the new Seth Lover designed Humbucking pickups.
It’s a real treat to see and play a relatively early model ES-345, this one built in 1964 at the Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and especially one in such good physical and playing condition. This guitar has been refretted and plays very nicely. The finish is in good condition, especially considering that it’s been played enough to require a refret; there is a fair amount of finish wear on the back of the neck between the 3rd and 7th positions to bare wood, but there are no dents or dings.
