Gibson Custom Le Grande Archtop Electric Natural, 2008

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.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES175 Sunburst Refinish, 1960

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES175 Sunburst Refinish, 1960

Here we have a Gibson ES175 sunburst, built during 1960 in Kalamazoo, Michigan and sporting a refinish and a pair of gold Guild humbuckers. The Gibson ES175 sunburst – its primary finish, though it was also available in natural at extra cost – was introduced in 1949 and produced until 2017. At that point, Gibson was restructuring and terminated several models and the Memphis plant. It is based on a number of previous Gibson arched top electric models, with Maple Laminates used for the body to reduce feedback.

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.

Here we have another fairly rare guitar, at least for North America – a Gibson CF100E Tamio Okuda model, cutaway with P90 and in very good condition. For those in Japan, Tamio needs no introduction. One of Japan’s most popular guitarist/singer/producer/songwriters, Tamio Okuda has had an almost 30-year career in the Japanese scene. The Gibson Custom Shop CF100E Tamio Okuda  model was built as a limited edition model during 2014, based on Tamio Okuda’s own 1950’s guitar.  The top is solid Sitka Spruce, the back, sides and neck are mahogany (the profile copies Tamio’s guitar) with a rosewood fingerboard.
