❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES350T Short Scale Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1956

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES350T Short Scale Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1956

The thin-bodied, short scale Gibson ES350T appeared in 1955, replacing the full size ES-350 and was much like a plainer version of the Venetian-cutaway Byrdland, which also debuted that year. When launched, the fully hollow ES-350T featured laminate Maple construction largely for feedback resistance and lower production cost, but a number of versions shared the Byrdland’s Spruce top and carved Maple back and sides.

❌SOLD❌ Schreiner Swan Neck Baroque 13-Course Theorbo Lute, 1996

❌SOLD❌ Schreiner Swan Neck Baroque 13-Course Theorbo Lute, 1996

Here’s an unusual rarity – a thirteen course, Michael Schreiner Swan Neck Baroque Theorbo Lute based on a 1730 design and built during 1996 in Toronto. The Schreiner Swan Neck Baroque Theorbo Lute perhaps presages the harp guitars that appeared in the early part of the 20th century. It combines the melodic and chordal capabilities of the Lute (or guitar) with a set of long, unfretted strings tuned to progressively lower pitches.

❌SOLD❌ Larrivee OM09 Indian Rosewood Natural, 2001

❌SOLD❌ Larrivee OM09 Indian Rosewood Natural, 2001

The Larrivée OM09 is based on the classic Orchestra Model guitars that first appeared in the opening days of the 1930’s as banjo players migrated to guitar but found they needed access to more frets. These models provide a well-balanced tonal representation throughout the harmonic range with plenty of volume, making them ideal for fingerstyles or strumming. This Larrivée OM09 was built during 2001 at the Larrivée shop in Oxnard, California. It’s in overall good condition with a few small dents on the top edge of the headstock, and a lacquer crack along the center seam below the bridge.

⚌Reduced‼  Gibson ES350 Electric Archtop Sunburst 1951

Here’s a real beauty – a Gibson ES350 Electric Archtop built during 1951 at the historic Parsons Street shop in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The ES-350 was built from 1947 to 1956, and for 1957 received a thinner body and new name – the ES-350T, the T standing for Thinline.   This model was played extensively by top artists like Barney Kessel, Chuck Berry, B B King and Tal Farlow. At its 1947 introduction, the Gibson ES350 was named the ‘ES-350 Premiere’ and was a full body, single cutaway archtop with a single P-90 pickup in the neck position. For 1949, it received a second pickup. Construction was typical of Gibson’s electric archtop production, with Laminate Maple for the top, sides and back, part of an attempt to reduce feedback at stage volumes.
