Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Built at the Gibson Nashville plant, the new Gibson Firebird closely – but not entirely – follows the original construction concepts of the first Firebirds. Most importantly, this is a neck-through design, with the neck and the body built up of a total of five pieces of Mahogany over their length, and four Walnut strips bracketing the center sections. This multi-piece construction is used to provide extra stability over the long section.

❌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.
