❌SOLD❌ Gibson Advanced Jumbo Historic Collection Vintage Burst, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Advanced Jumbo Historic Collection Vintage Burst, 2005

Here’s a lovely and unusual piece – a Gibson Advanced Jumbo Historic Collection model, patterned after the original 1936 round shouldered, Rosewood dreadnought. While this looks rather like other Gibson round shoulder models – particularly the venerable J-45 – the Advanced Jumbo has a longer scale length, the X brace is moved closer to the soundhole, and the sides and back are Rosewood instead of Mahogany. Gibson launched the Advanced Jumbo in 1936 but discontinued it in 1939. The original models used a mix of Brazilian and Indian Rosewood – both are documented.

❌SOLD❌ Taylor T5 C2 Koa Slimline Electric, 2006

❌SOLD❌  Taylor T5 C2 Koa Slimline Electric, 2006

The Taylor T5 C2 Koa is now discontinued but was introduced in 2005 to meet the needs of touring musicians who had to pare back the number of instruments they carried.   Built to simulate the tones and responses of solidbody, semi-hollow and fully acoustic models, the T5 line succeeded in its aims while also looking great on any kind of stage. This Taylor T5 C2 Koa has a serial number dating it to October 10, 2005. It’s built with Sapele for the back and sides, with nicely figured Hawaiian Koa for the top. The neck is also Sapele, with a bound Ebony fingerboard sporting the ‘Spires’ inlay pattern.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Gary Moore Les Paul Standard Honeyburst, 2000

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Gary Moore Les Paul Standard Honeyburst, 2000

The Gibson Gary Moore Les Paul was built from 2000 to 2002 at Nashville, Tennessee and reflects but doesn’t copy Moore’s 1959 Burst originally used by Peter Green in Fleetwood Mac. Taking a regular Les Paul body and neck, the Gibson Gary Moore model does away with body and neck binding, and has a wiring or magnetic configuration that mimics the ‘out of phase’ tone on Peter Green’s Burst. Green felt that the pickup had been physically reversed, but in reality one of the pickup magnets may have been reversed as a manufacturing error.
