Gibson J185 Original Jumbo Steel String Antique Natural, 2005

Gibson J185 Original Jumbo Steel String Antique Natural, 2005

Here we have a Gibson J185 Original Jumbo bodied steel string in Antique Natural finish, built during 2005 at the Gibson Acoustic plant in Bozeman, Montana. The J-185 is a very good but likely under-appreciated guitar, being overshadowed by the better known and slightly larger J-200. The Gibson J185 and J200 have many similarities and the key differences are not always seen at first glance. Both feature the Jumbo body shape, Sitka Spruce top with Figured Maple for the sides and back, and Rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge.

Deering Golden Era 5-String Banjo, 2013

Here we have a Deering Golden Era Banjo dating to 2013 in very clean condition with very little wear of any kind, and with a nicely padded strap attached! A maple, prewar style bluegrass banjo made like the classic banjos of the 1930’s with the same materials and the same weight, design and features, the Golden Era is one of our most popular banjos for traditional bluegrass bands. If you’re looking for that classic bluegrass banjo tone and look – this is the banjo for you.

Collings I35DLXS Thinline Custom Single Pickup Cherry, 2008

Collings I35DLXS Thinline Custom Single Pickup Cherry, 2008

Here’s a real beauty – a Collings I35DLXS Thinline Custom with a carved, solid Flame Maple top and single Lollar Imperial pickup in the neck position. This  wonderful example was originally custom ordered through The Twelfth Fret during 2008, and has been used professionally. An interesting note about its use and condition is that  it’s really only been used in a seated position. Collings supplied a pair of strap pins, which are in the Ameritage case, but as part of the custom order did not drill holes for them or install them.
