❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-175D Archtop Electric Mahogany Sunburst, 1989

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-175D Archtop Electric Mahogany Sunburst, 1989

In production from 1953 to 2016 and the successor to the 1949 single pickup ES-175, the Gibson ES-175D was perhaps the best accepted archtop electric. While found in many genres of music, from jazz to early rock and roll, from pop to arena rock, it is most associated with the many jazz guitarists who built careers with it.

❌SOLD❌ Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith ‘Lawsuit Era’ Archtop Electric Natural, 1975

❌SOLD❌  Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith 'Lawsuit Era' Archtop Electric Natural, 1975

Here we have an Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith style, full body cutaway archtop, built in Japan likely during 1975. The model was built until 1977. Typical of the early 1975 period, it has no serial number – these started appearing on the back of the headstock late 1975. It is largely original, though it has a slight modification – the output jack was a mini-plug mounted on the pickguard, and this was removed and a standard 1/4 inch jack installed to the lower treble side.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Memphis ES-330 59 Reissue Natural, 2015

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Memphis ES-330 59 Reissue Natural, 2015

The Gibson Memphis ES-330 59 Reissue was built from 2009 to 2019, when the Memphis plant closed. This remarkable instrument re-creates the original 1959 version of the ES-330. This design was much better known in its later Epiphone form – the ES-230 Casino used by a number of influential British musicians. This Gibson Memphis ES-330 59 Reissue has a formal model number “ES30VNNH1”. This indicates the 330 style, vintage spec, nickel plating and natural finish.

❌SOLD❌   Gretsch Tennessean 6119 Walnut, 1967

Currently named the ‘Tennessee Rose’, the Gretsch Tennessean 6119 first appeared in 1958, and for 1961 gained the closed, thin ElectroTone body. Chet Atkins had been urging Gretsch to take steps to reduce feedback on their hollowbody designs, especially after Gibson introduced the center-block ES335 in 1958.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6122TG Country Gentleman Player’s Edition Walnut, 2016

❌SOLD❌  Gretsch G6122TG Country Gentleman Player's Edition Walnut, 2016

The Gretsch G6122TG Country Gentleman Player’s Edition is the latest version of this classic updated with locking tuners, pinned bridge and string-through Bigsby. But there’s more to the updates – the neck joint was re-engineered to reduce the size of the neck block and comfortably increase upper fret access.   This change alone is a huge improvement in playability, making an already great design even better!
