Sold! Michael Schreiner Renaissance Lute Maple Cherry, 1980

Sold!  Michael Schreiner Renaissance Lute Maple Cherry, 1980

The Schreiner Renaissance lute, with 7 courses, is built using largely traditional patterns and materials – in this case, the top is Spruce, the ribs are alternating Flame Maple and Cherry, with the neck being a light wood wrapped with Cherry, and topped with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The head is constructed of Maple, with Rosewood friction pegs. The bridge, basically a tie block, is made of Cherry. The frets are traditional knotted gut, but the strings are a modern nylon set with metal wound strings used in the bass courses.

Dave Mills 5 String Openback Banjo with Frailing Scoop, 2018

Dave Mills 5 String Openback Banjo with Frailing Scoop, 2018

This neatly constructed Dave Mills 5 string openback banjo uses a 12 inch pot with a spun-over Maple rim and Dobson-style tone ring, and a 3-piece Maple neck with an Ebony fingerboard that carries a frailing scoop. The Maple used on the rim and neck has a very convincing Cherry stain – so convincing that even our repair shop staff thought it was cherry from a short distance!     The head uses a traditional ‘paddle’ outline.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson ES-335 ‘Rich Robinson’ 471 of 500 Cherry, 2014

❌ SOLD ❌  Gibson ES-335 'Rich Robinson' 471 of 500 Cherry, 2014

Built at the Gibson Memphis plant, the Gibson ES-335 Rich Robinson is very much like a ‘new’ 1963 model. The ‘Custom Made’ plaque on the body was frequently used to cover stop-tailpiece collars when a Bigsby was installed, either at the factory or after purchase. The cherry finish very common in that era, and the metal parts have gone through a ‘VOS’ aging process to simulate natural oxidization.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson SG SR VOS 1961 Les Paul Custom Shop Cherry, 2006

❌ SOLD ❌  Gibson SG SR VOS 1961 Les Paul Custom Shop Cherry, 2006

Here’s a wonderful piece that takes us all back. This is a Gibson SG SR VOS 1961, a reissue of the reworked 1961 Les Paul Standard with Lyre Vibrola and Cherry finish. This was the second version of the SG build – the initial production run had a side-to-side vibrola tailpiece. That was quickly replaced with the Maestro Lyre Vibrola, and this form was the SG Standard until the mid 1960’s. By 1963, the Les Paul name was removed for contractual reasons.

Sold! Epiphone Riviera Style E360TDC Thinline Archtop Cherry, 1969

Sold!  Epiphone Riviera Style E360TDC Thinline Archtop Cherry, 1969

Introduced in 1962, the Epiphone Riviera followed the new Gibson Thinline design of thin archtop with a center block. The Riviera was a relatively plain model, with two small humbuckers and a Frequensator split trapeze or Vibrola tailpiece. It was built until 1970, when the Norlin management shifted Epiphone production to Japan. The full designation for the model is Epiphone Style E360 Riviera, and in this case it is an E360TDC for Thin, Dual Pickup, Cherry finish.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-339 Thinline Custom Shop Cherry, 2008

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-339 Thinline Custom Shop Cherry, 2008

The Gibson ES-339 was a hit from its introduction in 2007 using the concept and classic lines of the ES-335, but with a scaled down body. All of the other features line up between the two models – the scale lengths, neck sizes and hardware are the same. The build quality is identical, with Maple laminates for the body, Mahogany for the neck and a Rosewood fingerboard. The headstock logos and position markers are Mother of Pearl.
