Hofner 1961 Cavern Bass 500/1 Left Handed Sunburst, 2015

Hofner 1961 Cavern Bass 500/1 Left Handed Sunburst, 2015

The Hofner 1961 Cavern bass was very popular in Europe during the late 1950s and early 1960’s. American built instruments were rare and expensive, and use by wildly successful bands such as The Beatles made everyone want one. At the time, the tiny Cavern Club in London was one of the key venues for aspiring bands to appear, and The Beatles played there so often the club name became closely associated with the band.

Sold! Gibson J-160E Steel String Acoustic Electric Sunburst, 1966

Sold!  Gibson J-160E Steel String Acoustic Electric Sunburst, 1966

The Gibson J-160E is one of the most recognisable steel string guitars, due largely to a series of recordings and performances during the early 1960s by The Beatles. Both John Lennon and George Harrison had J-160E models, while McCartney used an Epiphone Texan strung as left handed. Though it looks a lot like the traditional classic J-45 round shoulder dreadnought, the Gibson J-160E has major structural differences. First, because the design goal was to reduce feedback at high stage volumes, the guitar body is entirely laminate, including the top. Rather than X-braced, the top is strongly Ladder braced.

❌NO LONGER AVAILABLE❌ Gibson ES-330 TD Thinline Archtop Guitar Sunburst, 1963

Built at the Kalamazoo, Michigan plant during 1963, this Gibson ES-330 TD is in overall good, complete and original condition. It has been played and used as intended so the finish has some minor wear and lovely natural checking, with moderate to heavy fret wear in some positions. Overall it’s in good shape with wear in the expected areas; it has not been abused or neglected though it’s definitely seen use.   It is currently strung with flat wounds.

The Rickenbacker Model 360/12C63 12 String Electric FireGlo is based on the original 1963 specifications of the most recognizable 12-string guitar, made famous by George Harrison. It sports a double-bound version of what is now the ‘330’ style body and the early FireGlo sunburst shaded finish.
