Gibson Flying V Black, 1993

Gibson Flying V Black, 1993

The Gibson Flying V was introduced in 1958 as part of an effort by Ted McCarty to modernize Gibson’s reputation with futuristic designs, along with the Explorer and the only-prototyped Moderne. While a few prominent players immediately picked up the Flying V, it was not popular and production ceased by 1959. During 1963, a few were built from leftover parts, but the two initial 1958 production batches totaled around 80 instruments.

Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom Adirondack and Sinker Mahogany Dreadnought, 2014

Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom Adirondack and Sinker Mahogany Dreadnought, 2014

The Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom is, as the name suggests, and buyer-customized version of the ‘Traditional Dreadnought-Mahogany’ model, in this case with Adirondack Spruce top and Sinker Mahogany back and sides.The ‘Traditional Dreadnought’ dates back to around 1911, when C F Martin built a number of large bodied guitars for the Ditson company. In 1931, with the need for ever-increasing volume, Martin re-launched the design with then now-classic ‘D’ series guitars. This design has been the basis for many other guitar models by many other builders.

Sold! Fender Custom Shop G E Smith Telecaster Blonde, 2012

Sold!  Fender Custom Shop G E Smith Telecaster Blonde, 2012

The Fender Custom Shop G E Smith Telecaster is a very straight ahead instrument, using the classic early 1950’s fatter maple neck on swamp ash body, with flat-head screws, instead of Philips screws. The pickups are American Vintage models, while the bridge plate is cut back to expose the pickup cavity; the pickup itself is bolted to the body. Smith feels that this contributes to an increased ‘fatness’ in the bridge pickup tone. The inlays draw from Fender lap steels, which Smith also plays.
