❌SOLD❌   Taylor 414ce-R Grand Auditorium Rosewood Natural, 2017

The Taylor 414ce-R Grand Auditorium Rosewood was launched at the 2016 Summer NAMM show, adding a Rosewood option in place of Ovangkol. Rosewood delivers a somewhat warmer and punchier tone. The design is very versatile, with plenty of volume and projection, suitable for everything from fingerstyle to flatpicking. The factory ES2 pickup system makes it ready to plug in should amplification be required.

Built from 1991 to 2011, the Gibson ES-165 Herb Ellis draws from the classic workhorse ES-175, but with a single neck-mount ‘floating’ pickup; some variations used a top-mount humbucker. The Herb Ellis Plus used a pair of traditional full-sized, top-mount humbuckers.

SOLD Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop Electric Natural, 1976

SOLD Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop Electric Natural, 1976

The Gibson Byrdland appeared in 1955 as a custom order for Billy Byrd and Hank Garland. These two were top Nashville session guitarists who wanted full archtop tone, but in a more comfortable thinner body and a shorter scale length – 23.5 inches, rather than Gibson’s standard 24.75 inches – to allow easier access to complex chords fingerings. The Byrdland was the first of Gibson’s thinline archtop guitars, with many more to follow. The design was so successful that it was quickly promoted to production status.

❌SOLD❌ Martin OMCPA1 LH Left Handed Natural, 2012

The Martin OMCPA1 LH is a left-handed version of a cutaway, OM body design in the now-discontinued Performing Artist line.  The  designation breaks down as Orchestra Model, Cutaway Performing Artist 1 (the 1 refers to the wood and trim selection), and Left Handed. The OM or Orchestra Model body design dates to the closing days of 1929 when the great banjoist migration was taking shape as many players shifted to guitar.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-175 VOS 1959 Reissue Sunburst, 2016

The Gibson ES-175 VOS 1959 Reissue brought back the 1959 version of the classic single humbucking pickup, working player’s jazz guitar. Introduced in 1949 as a 16 inch wide, fully hollow single cutaway electric, the Gibson ES-175 first carried a single P-90 pickup in the neck position. In 1953, the ES-175D was launched with a second pickup, and that became the most popular configuration throughout the 175’s production.
