Gibson ES350 Electric Archtop Sunburst 1951

Gibson ES350 Electric Archtop Sunburst 1951

Here’s a real beauty – a Gibson ES350 Electric Archtop built during 1951 at the historic Parsons Street shop in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The ES-350 was built from 1947 to 1956, and for 1957 received a thinner body and new name – the ES-350T, the T standing for Thinline.   This model was played extensively by top artists like Barney Kessel, Chuck Berry, B B King and Tal Farlow. At its 1947 introduction, the Gibson ES350 was named the ‘ES-350 Premiere’ and was a full body, single cutaway archtop with a single P-90 pickup in the neck position. For 1949, it received a second pickup. Construction was typical of Gibson’s electric archtop production, with Laminate Maple for the top, sides and back, part of an attempt to reduce feedback at stage volumes.

Eastman SB56 NGD Gold Top Solidbody

The new Eastman SB56 NGD Gold Top Solidbody honors the traditional “LP” construction concept, with top quality materials, construction and components including stock Lollar pickups. Built using a one-piece Mahogany body under a solid carved Maple cap, and one-piece Mahogany neck with Ebony for the fingerboard and head plate, the Eastman SB56 is intended to look and act like a mid 1950’s gold top P-90 equipped model, and does a great job of it.

Eastman SB59 V Amber Solidbody Guitar

Eastman SB59 V Amber Solidbody Guitar

The Eastman SB59 V reflects the classic late 1950s design for a single cutaway, Flamed Maple on Mahogany solidbody with humbucking pickups. While it follows the formula, it’s not a precise copy and Eastman uses their own designs. As a ‘Vintage’ style model, this guitar has undergone an treatment process to simulate the wear of decades of use – except for fretwear.
