❌SOLD❌Guild X150 Savoy Cutaway Single Pickup Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1961

The Guild X150 Savoy is a single cutaway carved Spruce top guitar, built from 1954 to 1965 in single and dual pickup (X150D) models and natural or sunburst finishes.  Currently, the new Guild Guitar company under Ren Ferguson – who ran the Gibson Acoustic shop in Bozeman –  offers the Guild A-150 Savoy model, with a neck-mount deArmond pickup.  Guild’s origins spring from the Epiphone company’s labour troubles following the death of founder Epi Stathopoulos in 1943.

The Gibson F12 mandolin was built for two periods – from 1934 to 1937, and from 1948 to 1980. This example is one of 85 built during 1949. Gibson mandolins broke new ground when Orville Gibson combined traditional Mandolin and Violin designs in the closing years of the 19th century. To this point, mandolins mostly followed the European style with a bowl back and flat, folded top.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES330TD Thinline Cherry, 1966

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES330TD Thinline Cherry, 1966

The design for the Gibson ES330TD – the TD stands for Two Pickup, Double Cutaway – was an outgrowth of Gibson president Ted McCarty’s desire to offer a new, modern guitar to jazz players. The first item on the list was double cutaways, which at the time were not available on really any archtop guitars. The first model to use this format, and with a solid center block to reduce feedback, was the 1958 ES-335. The ES-355 and ES-345 soon followed, and to round out the line, the fully hollow Gibson ES300TD was added.

The Gibson ES 345 appeared in 1958 as one of the two ‘upmarket’ versions of the ground breaking new ES-335, and featured a Varitone switch and Stereo outputs. Here we’re looking at a Gibson ES 345 in its 1964 Reissue form, built during 2017 at the now-closed Memphis, Tennessee plant. This lovely piece is in very good condition with negligible wear.
The body and neck are built in the traditional manner, with Maple Laminate used for the top, back and sides and a solid Maple center block.
