❌SOLD❌ Gibson TG-0 Tenor Guitar Natural Mahogany, 1963

❌SOLD❌    Gibson TG-0 Tenor Guitar Natural Mahogany, 1963

The Gibson TG-0 tenor guitar was built during two periods and two forms, but was always a relatively simple Mahogany top 4-string acoustic. The first TG-0 was based on the L-0 from 1927 to 1933, and the second based on the LG-0 from 1960 to 1974. Here we’re looking at a second series Gibson TG-0 dating to 1963 at the Kalamazoo plant, and draws directly from the LG-0 model. These guitars use Mahogany for the top, back sides with Spruce bracing, and Mahogany for the neck but a Rosewood fingerboard.

Sold! Martin D-28 Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought, 1969

Sold! Martin D-28 Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought, 1969

Here we have another Martin D-28 Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought steel string guitar dating to 1969. This was officially the last year that the Martin guitar company used Brazilian Rosewood, though it was found in smaller portions until about 1973 when their last supplies were exhausted. The Dreadnought steel string, as found on guitars like the C F Martin D-28 Brazilian and the rest of their ‘D’ line, has been one of the most successful guitar designs. Used by countless guitarists and on many recordings, the Dreadnought brought banjo-matching volume.

Martin D-21 Dreadnought Brazilian Rosewood, 1958

Martin D-21 Dreadnought Brazilian Rosewood, 1958

Built from 1955 to 1969, the Martin D-21 was a bridge between the Mahogany D-18 and the Rosewood D-28 models, with Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides but without extra binding or decoration. Martin stopped building the D-21 about the same time their stocks of Brazilian Rosewood were exhausted, and demand for the model was not enough to justify shifting it to Indian Rosewood.
