❌SOLD❌ Taylor 712 with Fishman Pickup, 1997

❌SOLD❌   Taylor 712 with Fishman Pickup, 1997

Here’s a lovely Taylor 712 from 1997, before pickups were stock, and it’s a very nice guitar for fingerstyle playing – well rounded with full, evenly balanced tone. The Taylor 712 in this form is no longer available. The 712 is now mostly presented as the Taylor 712 ce, for Cutaway Electric, and most often in 12-fret neck format, with slotted peghead. However, the construction has the same basis in the Grand Concert body, roughly equivalent to a Martin OOO body size. It features a Sitka Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, Mahogany for the body blocks, linings and neck, and Ebony for the bridge and bound fingerboard.

❌SOLD❌Collings I35 LC Deluxe Thinline Archtop Guitar Sunburst 2015

This is a treat – a Collings I35 LC Deluxe thinline archtop electric in a traditional sunburst, one of the best renderings of this concept available. This model draws from the iconic and once revolutionary Gibson ES-335 series, with a Maple laminate body around a Maple center block, and Mahogany neck with Indian Rosewood fingerboard.   It’s wired using a 1950’s style layout, with a pair of Lollar Imperial Low-Wind humbuckers.  This Collings I35 LC Deluxe example was built during 2015 at the Collings shop in Austin, Texas.  It is in all original, very good condition.   While it’s been played, wear is light.

❌SOLD❌  Johnny Walker Grand Concert Cutaway Classical Guitar, 2010

Here is a rarity – a fine Johnny Walker Grand Concert cutaway classical guitar, built during 2010 at Walker’s shop in the heartlands of Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Originally trained as a research chemist, Johnny Walker developed an interest in classical guitar and while taking lessons, decided to build a better guitar from a kit.  That worked out well and led to another, then another, and by 1966 Johnny Walker Guitars was born.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES 175D Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1979

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES 175D Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1979

The Gibson ES 175D, now discontinued, was one of the most popular archtop electric models for working jazz players, with classic lines and tone. The ES-175 first appeared in 1949 with a single P-90 pickup at the neck position, and was followed by the Dual pickup ES-175D in 1953. In 1958, the P-90 pickups were replaced with Gibson’s new humbucking pickups.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson L5 Archtop ES5 Conversion Sunburst, 1948

❌SOLD❌  Gibson L5 Archtop ES5 Conversion Sunburst, 1948

The Gibson L5 was the premiere cutaway archtop for jazz guitarists – in fact it was originally named the Premiere – from its 1939 introduction. Close on its heels, though, the 1949 ES-5 offered three P-90 pickups but was built with laminates instead of solid woods for the body, all to reduce feedback. Here we’re looking at a Gibson L5 built during 1948, and some time later converted to an ES-5 configuration, with three P-90 pickups, but wired as other Gibson models – four controls and a switch – and not the six controls of the ES-5.
