❌SOLD❌ Martin D-28 Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought, 1969

❌SOLD❌ Martin D-28 Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought, 1969

Here we have another Martin D-28 Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought steel string guitar dating to 1969. This was officially the last year that the Martin guitar company used Brazilian Rosewood, though it was found in smaller portions until about 1973 when their last supplies were exhausted. The Dreadnought steel string, as found on guitars like the C F Martin D-28 Brazilian and the rest of their ‘D’ line, has been one of the most successful guitar designs. Used by countless guitarists and on many recordings, the Dreadnought brought banjo-matching volume.

❌SOLD❌ Martin D16H Steel String Dreadnought, 1992

❌SOLD❌   Martin D16H Steel String Dreadnought, 1992

The Martin D16H was built from 1991 to 1993, and sought to combine vintage D-18 elements with modern neck profiles and led to the D-18V models. Relatively rare, the Martin D16H is one of the hidden gems from the Martin line. Lightweight and built as well as the other Dreadnought models and like the D-18, the D16H features a Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck.

❌SOLD❌ Pre War Martin D28 Dreadnought Guitar, 1941

❌SOLD❌ Pre War Martin D28 Dreadnought Guitar, 1941

This pre war Martin D28 dates to approximately June 1941 based on its serial number and production totals, and is in good playing condition with – to understate- a very good sound, rich, full, and large amounts of projection. It has had an amount of work done to it over the years. As standard for the pre war Martin D28, the body is a dreadnought with Adirondack Spruce top and bracing, Brazilian Rosewood for the sides, back, and head plate, Mahogany for the body blocks, lining and neck, and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge.

❌SOLD❌ Epiphone BB King Lucille Thinline Archtop Electric, 2015

❌SOLD❌  Epiphone BB King Lucille Thinline Archtop Electric, 2015

Based closely on the currently-discontinued Gibson signature model, the Epiphone BB King Lucille is an affordable and rather good entry into the world of thinline archtop electrics.  The late, great B B King continues to have an outsized influence on blues stylings. His use of tasteful restraint combined with a wicked vibrato and an outstanding voice provide many points of emulation for countless players. For many years, BB King used top of the line Gibson thinline electric guitars, primarily the ES-355 and ES-345. Because he was the frontman and band leader, his amps would be set to maximum with stage volume controlled from the guitar; this kept his attention to the audience.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ESDP 335 Tobacco Sunburst, 2011

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ESDP 335 Tobacco Sunburst, 2011

The Gibson ESDP 335 was a limited production model built at the now-closed Gibson Memphis plant, over the course of several years. The ESDP designation expands to “Electric Spanish Dot Neck Plain Top”, and is otherwise a standard ES-335 dot neck model. Gibson introduced the ES-335 as a new ground-breaking concept for their 1958 model year. Ted McCarty, then President of Gibson, had the idea to combine traditional arch top guitar tone with solid body sustain and feedback resistance.

❌SOLD❌ Heritage H575 Cutaway Archtop Electric Blonde, 1990

❌SOLD❌  Heritage H575 Cutaway Archtop Electric Blonde, 1990

The Heritage H575 is a take on the classic single-cutaway Maple laminate archtop electric, and clearly draws from the Gibson ES-175 that originated in the building Heritage now occupies. Heritage was formed by former Gibson employees who did not want to leave Kalamazoo when Gibson completed its move to Nashville. This Heritage H575 dates to 1990 and was built at the Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Like every other Heritage we’ve seen, it is very well built and finished.
