Gibson SG Supreme Fireburst, 2002

Gibson SG Supreme Fireburst, 2002

The Gibson SG Supreme was built from 1999 to 2009 and features a figured Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, paired with a Mahogany neck and bound Richlite fingerboard. At first, the SG Supreme was equipped with a pair of P-90 pickups, but these were phased out in favour of Humbuckers over the year 2000 and into 2001. In 2002, the ‘Fireburst’ finish seen here started rising from the tail of the guitar, rather than the traditional burst with dark edges and lighter center.

❌SOLD❌ Suhr Modern Carved Top Lacewood and Cedar Fireburst 2017

❌SOLD❌ Suhr Modern Carved Top Lacewood and Cedar Fireburst 2017

Here is something not seen every day – a Suhr Modern Carved Top model with a chambered Lacewood top, Cedar back body. Suhr models start at professional grade and are largely custom order. A quirk of the Suhr process is that the serial number is established at time of order, sometimes well before the instrument construction is begun, let alone finished.   While these numbers are consecutive, that doesn’t always match the sequence pieces are completed.   Here, this Suhr Modern Carved Top model has a COA listing a date of 10/24/2017.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch 6131 Jet Firebird, 1962

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch 6131 Jet Firebird, 1962

Here’s a rarity – a Gretsch 6131 Jet Firebird in great condition and dating to 1962, its second year as a double cutaway.   This model is perhaps most visually associated with the late Malcolm Young of AC/DC.   The Gretsch G6131 Jet appeared in 1955, following the 1953 release of the Duo-Jet, perhaps as the Gretsch response to the Gibson Les Paul. At that point it featured a single cutaway body with an arched top – but instead of being solid, the body was chambered to reduce weight and produce a more ‘acoustic’ tone, towards Gretsch’s other arched-top models. The pattern of an archtop-style floating bridge rather than a fixed bridge like the Les Paul was still used.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Supreme Translucent Black, 2012

Introduced in 2003 and built at the Nashville Tennessee shop, the Gibson Les Paul Supreme is a high-end take on the classic design and features carved, highly figured Maple top and back. The construction of the Gibson Les Paul Supreme differs from the standard Les Paul though it uses the same basic materials as the Les Paul Custom. The carved top and back set are bookmatched, highly flamed Maple, on either side of a chambered Mahogany core.
