Larrivee D09 Rosewood Artist Series, 2005

Larrivee D09 Rosewood Artist Series, 2005

Here we’re looking at a Larrivee D09 Rosewood, dreadnought body guitar with a build date of November 29 2005 and built at the Larrivee shop in Oxnard, California. Based on the classic square-shoulder Dreadnought body shape that has driven much popular music from the 1930’s to the present, the Larrivee D09 features a Sitka Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back, Mahogany for the body blocks and neck and Ebony for the bridge, fingerboard and head plate

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul DC Standard Amber, 2005

Drawing from the late 1950s double cutaway models, the Gibson Les Paul DC Standard features a heavily figured Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, and Maple neck with bound, 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard and gold plated hardware. The hardware on this example is gold plated, with Grover Roto-Matic tuners at the head and an ABR/Stop Tailpiece set on the body. The neck pickup is shifted slightly towards the bridge, compared to a single cutaway Les Paul, to accommodate the longer 24 fret fingerboard. A pair of humbucking pickups feed to a standard 3-way switch, from there to a single Volume and Tone control, and finally to a side-mounted output jack.

The Gretsch G5125 Electromatic was part of a line of similar models differentiated by colour; the 5125 in black, the 5129 with a red top, the 5127 in powder blue. Based on the Gretsch Anniversary models, all shared the same hardware – a licensed Bigsby tailpiece with aluminum bridge, Kluson style tuners, and deArmond 2000 pickups that simulated the classic single coil DynaSonics.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Batwing SG Standard, Cherry 2005

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Batwing SG Standard, Cherry 2005

The Gibson Batwing SG made its debut in 1966, with an extended pickguard covering the top above, between and below the strings, and also supporting the pickups. These were produced until 1971, at which point the SG Deluxe replaced it. The SG has been used by many players over the years, and the Gibson Batwing SG is very frequently seen in the hands of the great Angus Young of AC/DC. The large ‘batwing’ pickguard is well suited to an active playing style. It offers significant protection to the finish. And, incidentally, much easier pickup and electronic maintenance. That can be a real bonus for a touring musician!

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee SSS Hardtail Cherry Red, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee SSS Hardtail Cherry Red, 2005

The Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee line has become one of my favourites and I wish I’d had one years ago – even if it wouldn’t have made me sound like Albert Lee!
Introduced in 1993, the Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee SSS was available only in hard tail 1996, when the Vintage Trem was an optional extra. Now, there are several versions of the model, with a pair of humbuckers, three narrow single coils, or three P-90s and the Music Man Silent Circuit, an active system that delivers noise cancellation to single coil pickups.
