⚌Reduced‼ Gibson S1 Solidbody Maple Natural, 1978

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson S1 Solidbody Maple Natural, 1978

Here we’re looking at a Gibson S1 built in Nashville TN, with a date of April 19 1978. This guitar is built exclusively of Maple, used for the three-piece body, three-piece neck, and fingerboard. This example is in largely original condition, except for the bridge pickup. Some time ago, the original single coil was removed, put in the case, and replaced with what looks like a Duncan Hot Rails.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson J185 Original Jumbo Steel String Antique Natural, 2005

⚌Reduced‼ 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.

⚌Reduced‼ Godin 5th Avenue Edition Speciale PT Indigo Blue, 2009

⚌Reduced‼ Godin 5th Avenue Edition Speciale PT Indigo Blue, 2009

The Godin 5th Avenue archtop model was introduced at the 2008 NAMM show, it was a surprise hit given that this type of guitar has been seen on fewer stages since the early 1960s. Since then, the 5th Avenue has been seen in a number of variations with different pickup configurations, with and without Bigsby True Vibrato tailpieces, with and without cutaways, and in a host of finishes. Seen here is the Godin 5th Avenue Edition Speciale PT sporting an Indigo Blue finish.

⚌Reduced‼ Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass Sunburst, 1982

This Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass Sunburst was built during 1982 in Fullerton, California and looking like it was used as intended.  With a neck date of April 1982, this Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass is an early effort to capture the original style of the Jazz Bass. The original models were introduced in 1960 as an attempt to capture the rest of the professional bass player market that hadn’t migrated to the Precision Bass.

⚌Reduced‼ Fender American Series Telecaster Maple Neck Sunburst, 2000

⚌Reduced‼  Fender American Series Telecaster Maple Neck Sunburst, 2000

The Fender American Series Telecaster was built from 2000 to 2007, renamed from (and then back to!) the American Standard Telecaster. It presents many of the best improvements to this venerable design. Leo Fender’s design, quickly becoming the Telecaster, has arguably been one of the most successful and influential musical instruments ever. It has been in continuous production since the early 1950’s, with really only relatively minor changes and improvements.
