⚌Reduced‼  Taylor 615ce Jumbo Cutaway Acoustic Natural, 2000

The Taylor 615ce was built from 1998 to 2011 and used a cutaway version of Taylor’s Jumbo body style, pairing Sitka Spruce and highly figured Maple like other guitars in Taylor’s 600 series. The 615ce superseded the original 600 non-cutaway jumbo models, which were built from 1981 to 1998.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Custom Le Grande Archtop Electric Natural, 2008

Here is a rare beauty – a Gibson Custom Le Grande archtop electric model from 2008, the successor to the classic Johnny Smith model built from 1961 to 1989. The Le Grande made its debut in 1993 and while it hasn’t appeared on Gibson’s website or catalog since around 2010, is still available on special order. The ‘stock’ finish is a Vintage Sunburst, with the Natural finish seen here as an extra-cost option. Always intended for the serious professional guitarist and never in mass production, the Gibson Custom Le Grande features a 17 inch wide body with carved, solid Sitka Spruce top, carved solid and highly figured Maple back and figured maple sides.
