❌SOLD❌ Gibson Starburst 100th Anniversary Cutaway Maple, 1994

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Starburst 100th Anniversary Cutaway Maple, 1994

Built from 1992 to 1994, the Gibson Starburst Standard uses a cutaway mini-Jumbo body built of Maple, and as its name suggests features arrays of star shaped inlays. This model was popular, and Jorma Kaukonen apparently had several that he used regularly, including the blue-finished model in the Homespun Tapes clip linked here. The Gibson Starburst was a model produced for a short time in limited numbers in Bozeman, Montana and was designed chiefly by Ren Ferguson. Intended to mark the 100th anniversary of Orville Gibson’s first guitar sales, the Starburst aims towards players who need to amplify their guitars. As such, its wood choices are intended to reduce resonance and volume and thus reduce feedback.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1963

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst,  1963

Originally built between 1958 and 1972, the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 was the Sunburst version of the two-tone 6125 model, both based on the successful 6120 Chet Atkins model. In its first two years, the Anniversary 6124/6125 carried a single Filter ‘Tron humbucking pickup at the neck, but from 1961 a single coil Hi-Lo ‘Tron was used. The basic structure or bones of the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 is very similar to the 6120, with a fully hollow, 16 inch wide body using parallel tone bar bracing and no sound post.

❌SOLD❌  Fender 25th Anniversary Stratocaster Faded Silver, 1979

For 1979, the 25th Anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster’s 1954 introduction, Fender naturally wanted to release a commemorative model. It was first available in white, then the silver associated with 25th anniversaries, and finally also in a translucent red. Many of the silver finishes have yellowed to a gold colour, as can be seen here.
