Collings I35DLXS Thinline Custom Single Pickup Cherry, 2008

Collings I35DLXS Thinline Custom Single Pickup Cherry, 2008

Here’s a real beauty – a Collings I35DLXS Thinline Custom with a carved, solid Flame Maple top and single Lollar Imperial pickup in the neck position. This  wonderful example was originally custom ordered through The Twelfth Fret during 2008, and has been used professionally. An interesting note about its use and condition is that  it’s really only been used in a seated position. Collings supplied a pair of strap pins, which are in the Ameritage case, but as part of the custom order did not drill holes for them or install them.

❌SOLD❌ Breedlove Journey Concert LTD Brazilian Natural, 2016

❌SOLD❌ Breedlove Journey Concert LTD Brazilian Natural, 2016

Built as number 21 of 50, this exceptional Breedlove Journey Concert steel string guitar pairs a Sitka Spruce top with fully documented Brazilian Rosewood for the sides and back. Some years ago, Breedlove found and purchased a relatively large stock of fully documented and hence ‘legal’ Brazilian Rosewood from a vendor in Spain. For 2016, it was decided to make two limited edition models, in a run of 50 guitars each, using some of this material and these were sold with the required CITES documentation.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker Manhattan Midnight, 2014

⚌Reduced‼  Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker Manhattan Midnight,  2014

The Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker appeared in 2014 as a 120th Anniversary model – a US made, reasonably priced high quality carved-top guitar with a solid history behind the names. The Melody Maker appeared in 1959 and built until 1971 as an entry level, thin slab Mahogany bodied single cutaway model, with one or two single coil pickups and a narrow headstock. The neck was Mahogany with a Rosewood fingerboard. For 1961, a second cutaway was added, but it wasn’t until 1967 that the Melody Maker got the ‘SG’ body shape.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Custom Shop SG Metallic Emerald Green, 1993

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Custom Shop SG Metallic Emerald Green, 1993

Here we have another rarity – from September 1993, a Gibson Custom Shop SG in Emerald Green Metallic finish with gold hardware and pearloid pickguard! The Gibson SG had been produced for three years before it gained the name ‘SG’. It was originally introduced in 1961 as a complete redesign of the then-unpopular single cutaway, carved Maple top Les Paul model. An additional driving factor was addressing Fender’s characterization of Gibson as old-fashioned.
