❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-125D Archtop Electric Non Cutaway Sunburst, 1957

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-125D Archtop Electric Non Cutaway Sunburst, 1957

The Gibson ES-125D is a rare version of a pretty common instrument. The entry-level ES-125 was very popular, but had only a P-90 pickup in the neck position until, and for only, 1957. Introduced in 1941 and offered until 1970 with production suspended between 1943 and 1946, the ES-125 was an ideal guitar for many genres.

❌SOLD❌Gibson Memphis ES345 64 Reissue Sea Foam Green, 2016

❌SOLD❌Gibson Memphis ES345 64 Reissue Sea Foam Green, 2016

Here’s a beauty from the now-closed shop – a Gibson Memphis ES345 64 Reissue thinline archtop electric in an unusual Sea Foam Green finish! This was a limited edition model for the 2016 year. Introduced in 1958 as a midpoint between the groundbreaking ES-335 and upscale ES-355, the Gibson ES-345 featured the same core construction as the two bracketing models. A thinline body built with Maple laminate and a solid Maple center block, routed for pickups, and a Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard are common to the three models (except for the ES355’s Ebony fingerboard with Mother of Pearl block markers).

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Batwing SG Standard, Cherry 2005

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Batwing SG Standard, Cherry 2005

The Gibson Batwing SG made its debut in 1966, with an extended pickguard covering the top above, between and below the strings, and also supporting the pickups. These were produced until 1971, at which point the SG Deluxe replaced it. The SG has been used by many players over the years, and the Gibson Batwing SG is very frequently seen in the hands of the great Angus Young of AC/DC. The large ‘batwing’ pickguard is well suited to an active playing style. It offers significant protection to the finish. And, incidentally, much easier pickup and electronic maintenance. That can be a real bonus for a touring musician!

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Studio ‘Les Paul 100’ Manhattan Midnight Blue, 2015

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Studio 'Les Paul 100' Manhattan Midnight Blue, 2015

The Gibson Les Paul Studio line delivers all the core features of a Les Paul at a lower price, and this is largely achieved by reducing decoration. The body and neck are not bound, and the Maple top is a ‘B’ grade, which is a visual rating (and it should be noted that many historic ‘Gold Top’ models also used Maple of this grade). However, there’s no skimping on the hardware.
