❌SOLD❌ Eastman MD915SB F Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2016

❌SOLD❌   Eastman MD915SB F Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2016

The Eastman MD915SB F Style mandolin follows the classic bluegrass style instruments pioneered in the early part of the 20th century by Orville Gibson and Lloyd Loar. These instruments departed steeply from all previous mandolins, in that they merged violin family concepts with the mandolin design. Traditional European mandolins generally had bowl backs and flat tops, which limited both their comfort and potential for delivering sound at a higher volume.

❌SOLD❌  Eastman MD515 F Style Mandolin Classic Tint, 2017

The Eastman MD515 mandolin is a high quality yet reasonably priced rendering on 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 we find commonplace today.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1963

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst,  1963

Originally built between 1958 and 1972, the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 was the Sunburst version of the two-tone 6125 model, both based on the successful 6120 Chet Atkins model. In its first two years, the Anniversary 6124/6125 carried a single Filter ‘Tron humbucking pickup at the neck, but from 1961 a single coil Hi-Lo ‘Tron was used. The basic structure or bones of the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 is very similar to the 6120, with a fully hollow, 16 inch wide body using parallel tone bar bracing and no sound post.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES 150 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1939

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES 150 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1939

The Gibson ES 150 was one of the earliest production electric guitars, and perhaps the first successful Electric Spanish – as distinct from Electric Hawaiian – guitars. Built from 1936 to 1956, the Gibson ES 150 is full bodied non-cutaway archtop guitar with a solid Spruce top and Mahogany for the back, sides, neck, body blocks and back bracing; the bridge and bound fingerboard are Rosewood, and for the period, it’s expected that the ‘Brazilian’ is silent. Brazilian Rosewood has become exotic and restricted, but at the time it was very common.
