The unusual Gibson BFG Les Paul Model was built from 2007 to 2011 and BFG stands for ‘Barely Finished Guitar’.

SOLD!!! Ibanez S61AL Axion Label, Black Mirage Gradation

SOLD!!! Ibanez S61AL Axion Label, Black Mirage Gradation

The Ibanez S61AL Axion Label is a slim double cutaway guitar with curvy lines and a fast playing neck. In contrast to the sharper lines of the Ibanez RG line this guitar takes more cues from other classic double cutaways. However, the reverse headstock, arched top and black mirage gradation finish certainly provide a modern aesthetic as well. The body of the Ibanez S61AL is made from Nyatoh which is often used as cost effective substitute for mahogany and it has a warm tone with full lower midrange. The flame maple cap adds a little bit of brightness and looks killer with the black mirage gradation finish.

Yamaha AEX1500 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1995 – No Longer Available

Yamaha AEX1500 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1995 - No Longer Available

Built in Japan from 1994 to 1999, the Yamaha AEX1500 is a single-cutaway archtop electric guitar originally designed by Yamaha and British jazz guitarist Martin Taylor. Taylor used these guitars as his touring instruments. While these models were sold in North America as the AEX1500, in Europe and the UK they were called the “Martin Taylor” model. The Yamaha AEX1500 is built, like many other professional grade archtop electrics, with Laminated Maple for the top, back and sides. The use of laminates improves both physical stability and feedback rejection at stage volumes.
