The Orchestra Model was originally designed for Percy Bechtel, a prominent banjoist and band leader in the 1920s, to aid transition from banjo to guitar. Construction of the Martin OM-18GE 1930 model closely follows the original spec, with an Adirondack Spruce top, Tropical Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck.

Gibson 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cut Reissue, 2007

Gibson 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cut Reissue, 2007

The Gibson 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cut Reissue is a great take on a classic, straight ahead solidbody that delivers plenty of tone via a pair of P-90 pickups. Often referred to as the ‘Les Paul DC’, the Les Paul Special first appeared in 1955 along with the Les Paul Junior, both as lower cost alternatives to the carved-top Les Paul model. Aside from lacking the carved Maple cap and simpler hardware, the Special and Junior construction was similar to the carved-top Les Paul.

Huss & Dalton Crossroads 14 Sunburst, 2020

Huss & Dalton Crossroads 14 Sunburst, 2020

The Huss & Dalton Crossroads 14 takes cues from the small body flat-top guitars used by many blues players from the 1920s to 1940s, but with more body depth to enhance bass response. This model is also available in a 12-fret version. The 14-fret version is really called the ‘Crossroads’,  with the 12-fret being the ‘Crossroads 12’,  but it’s easy to confuse the two.
