Martin 0014F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

Martin 0014F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

Here’s an unusual guitar from the Custom Shop – a Martin 0014F cutaway guitar with ‘Toasted Burst’ top finish, built during 2015 in very gently used condition.  This lovely venetian-cutaway model has a Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany sides, back and neck, and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The 00-14F is a recent and custom-run model, and does not at present appear in the Martin catalog or website.  This example is in overall quite good condition with very little wear.  The thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish is showing signs of naturally sinking, and is very clean with only the lightest scuffing.

⚌Reduced‼ Epiphone Texan FT79N Steel String Natural, 1966

The Epiphone Texan FT79N – the N indicating a Natural finish on the top rather than Sunburst – was built as a slope shoulder dreadnought from 1958 to 1970 when Epiphone production ceased in the USA. The Epiphone FT79 was originally built from 1941 to 1958 as a square shoulder dreadnought with Walnut back and sides until 1949, and then with laminated Maple until the company was sold to Gibson in 1958.

Gibson LG3 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1949

Gibson LG3 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1949

The Gibson LG3 was built from late 1942 to 1963 as an entry level model, but its production was suspended months after its launch due to WW2.  It was introduced with the LG1 and LG2, but from 1943 to 1945, only the sunburst LG2 stayed in production.  All three models were similar in appearance, but the LG1 and LG2 were ladder braced while the LG3 had what’s now the standard X bracing. In 1963, the LG3 was replaced by the B25-N (for Natural Finish Top).

Taylor 810e DLX Dreadnought Steel String Natural, 2016

Taylor 810e DLX Dreadnought Steel String Natural, 2016

The Taylor 810e DLX draws from the classic Dreadnought design, pairing a Spruce top with Rosewood for the body for a full, rich sound with plenty of volume and projection. Built in El Cajon, California and dated to November 15 2016, this Taylor 810e DLX is in overall good clean condition with just a couple of small marks in the finish – they can be hard to find. Fret wear is light, and mostly limited to the lower frets and higher strings; a light dress and polish would make them look new.
