Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Built at the Gibson Nashville plant, the new Gibson Firebird closely – but not entirely – follows the original construction concepts of the first Firebirds. Most importantly, this is a neck-through design, with the neck and the body built up of a total of five pieces of Mahogany over their length, and four Walnut strips bracketing the center sections. This multi-piece construction is used to provide extra stability over the long section.

C F Martin D28 Dreadnought Acoustic Brazilian Rosewood, 1969

C F Martin D28 Dreadnought Acoustic Brazilian Rosewood, 1969

ere we have a C F Martin D28, built in Nazareth, Pennsylvania in 1969. 1969 was officially the last year that Martin used Brazilian Rosewood for their Rosewood models, and in 1970 Indian Rosewood was in use. A few guitars were built with the dwindling stocks of Brazilian, eventually coming down to Brazilian being used for the center panel on the three-piece D-35 back. Brazilian Rosewood is used for the sides, back, and head plate.

Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Special SSS Vintage Burst, 2003

Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Special SSS Vintage Burst, 2003

Introduced in 1995, the Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Special is based closely on the Silhouette, but adds the very useful Silent Circuit, rendering standard single coils noiseless. The Silhouette Special features an Alder body with a gloss Vintage Sunburst finish that also appears on the headstock front. The neck has a 10 inch radius and Gun Oil finish on its length; the headstock itself has a gloss finish, matching sunburst on the front and clear on the sides and back of the head.

Harmony Meteor H70 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1958

Harmony Meteor H70 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1958

Built from 1958 to 1966, the Harmony Meteor H70 thinline archtop electric was mass produced in Chicago, and popular with many amateur and rising musicians – even appearing on Rolling Stones stages in the hands of Keith Richards. The Meteor H70 was also available as the Meteor H71 – the same guitar, but with a Natural finish instead of sunburst. The largest difference between the Meteor H70 and models like the Rocket H54 is the use of Spruce laminate for the top instead of Maple. This choice gives the guitar a more complex, warmer tone than the Maple top models.
