⚌Reduced‼  Breedlove Quartz OF A-Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2005

The Breedlove Quartz OF is an A-Style mandolin, the ‘O’ indicating an Oval body and the F, F Holes. Like other Breedlove mandolins, it has been out of production since 2016. ‘Quartz’ is the term Breedlove assigned to their entry-level US built mandolins.   That name is possibly a reference to a mountain not far from the Breedlove shop, then located in Tumalo, Oregon.

Eastman MD515 F-Style Mandolins

Eastman MD515 F-Style Mandolins

Eastman MD515 mandolins are a high quality yet reasonably priced rendering of the classic Gibson F-style instruments introduced in the 1920s during Lloyd Loar’s tenure at Gibson. One of Orville Gibson’s radical innovations was to bring violin family construction principles into the world of guitars and mandolins, leading directly to the arched top instruments that are commonplace today. The Eastman MD515 models are part of Eastman’s entry level instrument lines, but that doesn’t mean that they have skimped on quality, just on decoration.

❌SOLD❌Gretsch Anniversary 6118 Two Tone Smoke Green 1964

❌SOLD❌Gretsch Anniversary 6118 Two Tone Smoke Green 1964

Here we have a very nice Gretsch Anniversary 6118 in Two Tone Smoke Green, built during 1964 in Brooklyn, New York. The Gretsch Anniversary Models were introduced as lower cost versions of the popular 6120 during 1958 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the company’s 1883 founding. This Gretsch Anniversary 6118 dates to 1964 and is in very nice condition, with no binding deterioration. The Two Tone Smoke Green finish shows natural and expected lacquer checking but the colours are rich and vibrant with very little physical damage otherwise. This guitar appears to be all original, with one subtle modification – the black plastic pickup inserts have been removed and flipped to be all black, with the ‘Gretsch’ logo hidden and facing down.
