⚌Reduced‼ Gibson ES-137 Thinline BlueBurst, 2006

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson ES-137 Thinline BlueBurst, 2006

Introduced in Nashville during 2002, the Gibson ES-137 thinline is intended to combine two of Gibson’s most successful designs – the resonance of the thinline archtop ES models, and the solidity of the Les Paul classic. However, this instrument is thicker than a thinline model, and uses mahogany instead of maple for the center block. Bringing together the Florentine cutaway, arch top body with the solid mahogany center block, and using most of the hardware from a Les Paul including the pickups, tune-a-matic bridge and stop tailpiece, the ES-137 thinline is a very versatile guitar.

Here is a brand new Douglas Harrison NJ Custom, with a carved Sitka Spruce top and flamed Big Leaf Maple for the sides, back and neck. Featuring a 16 inch wide body, this new Harrison NJ Custom also uses Macassar Ebony for the bridge, tailpiece, head plate, Laskin style arm rest, and a segmented sound port on the upper bass side. The frets are stainless steel medium jumbo, and it should be years before they require any service.

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

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.

Gretsch Tennessean 6119 Walnut, 1967

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.

Gretsch G6122TG Country Gentleman Player’s Edition Walnut, 2016

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!
