The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

1963

Gretsch Chet Atkins 6122 Country Gentleman Thinline Archtop Walnut, 1963

Gretsch Chet Atkins 6122 Country Gentleman Thinline Archtop Walnut, 1963

Here we’re looking at a Gretsch Chet Atkins 6122 Country Gentleman built during 1963, the same year as Harrison’s. This fine example is in very good condition, and is original except for the addition of a Gibson style, gold plated tune-o-matic bridge in place of the rocking bar bridge. The finish is worn on the neck where it’s been played – the frets are original and have expected wear – but the guitar has been well cared for and the finish is in overall good condition.

❌SOLD❌  Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn® Telecaster®, 2017

The Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Telecaster takes its cues as a signature model from one of Paisley’s main guitars, an original 1968 pink Paisley Tele. The initial appearance of this model is striking – it’s shiny, silver sparkle finish is hard to miss, and complements the silver and black Paisley pickguard.   The one-piece Maple neck is much like many 1950’s models, and its 9.5 inch radius fingerboard and full profile is surprisingly comfortable.

❌SOLD❌Gibson J45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1963

❌SOLD❌Gibson J45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1963

he Gibson J45 Slope Shouldered dreadnought, or Jumbo, was introduced in 1942 to replace the J-35, which had been built since 1936. It has remained in production ever since, and its rich warm tones make it a great match with a singer. Intended as a ‘working man’s guitar’, the Gibson J43 Slope Shouldered model was very similar to the J-35, but for the most part has stiffer, stronger and taller bracing shifted slightly back from the soundhole and a rounded neck profile.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1962

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1962

Gibson first introduced the Les Paul Junior with their 1954 model lineup as their lowest price student model, with one pickup and no frills. It kept that position until 1959, when it was bumped by the Melody Maker. From 1954, the Les Paul Junior had a profile very much like the Les Paul itself – it looked like the Les Paul’s Mahogany back, just without the carved Maple cap. For 1958, Gibson was shifting to double cutaway bodies, reflected in the brand new ES-335, and the Junior also got a double cutaway treatment.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster 63 NOS Custom Shop Candy Apple Red, 2007

❌SOLD❌    Fender Telecaster 63 NOS Custom Shop Candy Apple Red, 2007

This Fender Telecaster 63 NOS is based on Fender’s 1963 specs. It is in complete and all original condition, and in good shape – there are a few dents and small chips around the edges of the nitrocellulose lacquer body finish. It is unusual for players to keep the ‘Ashtray’ pickup cover on. Though its purpose is to provide some shielding for the bridge pickup, it can get in the way of palm muting, and most of the time it is removed, set aside, and lost. Not here!
