Gibson ES-335 TDC Dot Neck Thinline Cherry, 1961

Gibson ES-335 TDC Dot Neck Thinline Cherry, 1961

Introduced in 1958, the Gibson ES-335 was one of the most significant guitar innovations and examples like this 1961 dot neck model are rare. Aimed at jazz players needing to play on ever-louder stages, the ES-335 had to provide arch-top tonality with feedback resistance. This wonderful example dates to 1961 and was built at the historic Kalamazoo, Michigan Gibson plant. It is a TDC model – Thin body, Dual pickup, Cherry finish.

Gibson ES-335 Thinline Archtop Electric Black, 1988

Gibson ES-335 Thinline Archtop Electric Black, 1988

This black Gibson ES-335, built at the Gibson Nashville plant and dating to August 18th, 1988 is in original condition, and plays well. The top’s finish shows some consistent lacquer checking, visible in the highlit top photograph. The back, sides and neck don’t show this nearly as much. Otherwise, the finish is in good shape with the minor scuffs expected on a 20 year old instrument. The components, including the stop tailpiece and Grover Rotomatic tuners, are original and the nickel plating is showing some natural oxidation, but little actual wear. Fretwear is light.

Alhambra 10FP Carlos Pinana Flamenco Negra Guitar

Alhambra 10FP Carlos Pinana Flamenco Negra Guitar

The Alhambra 10FP Carlos Pinana Flamenco Negra guitar, a recent model from Alhambra guitars in the eastern part of Spain.  Many contemporary Flamenco players find they need a guitar that offers a fuller and rounder bass response, as well as the traditional treble-clarity and power one expects in a traditional Flamenco guitar. To this end we have seen an increasing number of Flamenco Guitars built with dark coloured Rosewood back and sides, commonly called Flamenco Negra guitars.

❌ SOLD ❌ Fender Precision Bass Black Refinish, 1959

❌ SOLD ❌ Fender Precision Bass Black Refinish, 1959

This vintage Fender Precision Bass built during 1959. It’s been used as intended and has played countless shows around Ontario, Canada – attested to by the stickers on the original tweed case. Somewhere in the dim and distant past, the alder body’s original finish was removed and a black finish was applied. The refinish itself has an amount of honest play wear. The neck is the standard one-piece Maple Fender design, and its finish is original, with the smooth wear and patina that only comes from decades of use.

❌ SOLD ❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee HH Model Black, 2012

The Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee HH is a very straight ahead guitar – just like Albert Lee is a straight ahead guitar player.

This Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee HH dates to January 12, 2012, and combines the striking, angular yet comfortable mahogany Albert Lee body with a solid rosewood neck and fingerboard. Locking tuners, a Music Man trem bridge, a pair of humbucking pickups with selector switch and master volume and tone controls round out the hardware.
