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.

Sold! Gibson ES137 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 2004

Sold!  Gibson ES137 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 2004

Built from 2002 to 2013 in Memphis as a limited production instrument, the Gibson ES137 is intended to bring together the sounds of an archtop and a Les Paul Classic. Two versions were produced – the Classic and Custom, with the key difference being that the Custom had an ebony fingerboard and a Varitone circuit. Gibson has long built archtop electric guitars, and the ES-137 takes cues from many older designs.

Gibson Les Paul Custom Sunburst, 1979

Gibson Les Paul Custom Sunburst, 1979

Here we’re looking at a Gibson Les Paul Custom Sunburst, dating to March 27 1979 and still built at the historic Kalamazoo plant. It has all the characteristics of the Norlin ownership era, from 1970 to 1983. These include a Maple neck rather than Mahogany, a decreased pitch for the headstock, and a volute behind the truss rod adjuster cavity. These changes were intended to reduce the number of broken headstocks.
