Eastman MD605 A Style Mandolin, Classic Finish

Eastman MD605 A Style Mandolin, Classic Finish

The Eastman MD605 represents great value in a quality A-Style mandolin, built with solid woods and wrapped in a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Introduced in 1905 and based on Orville Gibson’s patent merging violin family techniques with guitar and mandolin construction, the A-Style mandolin has a distinctive teardrop shape and a carved top and back, with either F holes or an oval hole; the F hole provides somewhat more top end. Compared to the F style often seen in bluegrass bands, the A Style body shape has more pronounced midrange and fundamental, and a less percussive attack.

Warwick Star Bass II Bubinga 4, 2008

Warwick Star Bass II Bubinga 4, 2008

The Warwick Star Bass II Bubinga 4 is a top quality, thinline bass with passive electronics, here in fretted form but also available as fretless. Introduced in 2008, this model is derived from the Framus Star Bass. The thinline construction concept is very familiar on guitars, but less so on basses. Though there can be a risk of feedback at higher volumes, the somewhat ’rounder’ attack and decay profiles evokes the tone of an acoustic bass.

❌SOLD❌Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary Smoke Green, 1959

❌SOLD❌Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary Smoke Green, 1959

The Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary appeared in 1958 as an evolution of the Streamliner, itself based on the popular Chet Atkins 6120 model and in 1959 featured Trestle Bracing and the new patent applied for Filter ‘Tron hum cancelling pickup designed by Ray Butts. Here we’re looking at an all original Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary in Smoke Green Two Tone. It’s in very nice condition, a very good neck angle and minimal wear to the finish and frets. There is a bit of binding damage, typical to Gretsch models of the era (due to long-term interaction between the binding and the binding glue), only on the short piece of binding next to the heel on the cutaway.

Eastman MDC805 Mandocello Classic Finish

Eastman MDC805 Mandocello Classic Finish

The Eastman MDC805 Mandocello is a wonderful, rich sounding instrument that works well as a solo, ensemble or accompaniment instrument in a wide range of styles and genres, from Celtic to Classical, Latin and back again. The Mandocello had been in existence for some centuries in Europe, beginning with flat back and then bowl back. However, in 1905 Orville Gibson’s company began producing mandolin family instruments, including Mandocello models that drew from his blending of violin and guitar concepts.

❌SOLD❌ Shopworn Gibson ES Les Paul Pelham Blue, 2016

We’ve previously listed this now shopworn Gibson ES Les Paul in Pelham Blue, built during 2016 at the now-closed Memphis plant. Since then, it’s suffered a small bit of finish damage near the pickup selector switch, and we’re offering it at a reduced price. One guitar bumped into another while being replaced on the rack, and the resulting dent broke out a small amount of the Pelham Blue finish.
