Gibson 1963 ES335 Block Reissue Cherry, 2018

Built as a limited edition historic reissue, the Gibson ES335 Block Reissue is as close as most people can get to the originals. This example was built at the Gibson Nashville plant during 2018, and is in excellent condition with virtually no wear.

⚌Reduced‼  Gibson ES350 Electric Archtop Sunburst 1951

Here’s a real beauty – a Gibson ES350 Electric Archtop built during 1951 at the historic Parsons Street shop in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The ES-350 was built from 1947 to 1956, and for 1957 received a thinner body and new name – the ES-350T, the T standing for Thinline.   This model was played extensively by top artists like Barney Kessel, Chuck Berry, B B King and Tal Farlow. At its 1947 introduction, the Gibson ES350 was named the ‘ES-350 Premiere’ and was a full body, single cutaway archtop with a single P-90 pickup in the neck position. For 1949, it received a second pickup. Construction was typical of Gibson’s electric archtop production, with Laminate Maple for the top, sides and back, part of an attempt to reduce feedback at stage volumes.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SG Special Cherry 1965

The Gibson SG Special first appeared in 1959, but as a Les Paul model featuring a slab body with rounded double cutaways. For 1961, the Les Paul line was completely redesigned and by 1963 the SG name replaced Les Paul’s. Here we’re looking at a Gibson SG Special in the classic Gibson cherry finish, with the short Vibrola tailpiece and compensated ‘stop bar’ bridge combination.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster 1961 Sunburst

Here is a wonderful rarity – a Fender Stratocaster 1961 model in its original sunburst and with a Rosewood ‘slab’ fingerboard on a Maple neck with heavy Birds-Eye figuring. Introduced in 1954 as a follow up to the highly successful Telecaster, the Stratocaster had only minor alterations until mid 1959 when it gained a major new feature – a Rosewood fingerboard – taken from the new-for-1958 Jazzmaster.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 1997SPC Fireglo, 2000

❌SOLD❌  Rickenbacker 1997SPC Fireglo, 2000

The Rickenbacker 1997SPC reproduces the three-pickup 1997 model built 1964 to 1967 for export to the United Kingdom, largely sold by Rose Morris and featuring a ‘traditional’ F hole rather than the Rickenbacker slash.
Based on the model 330 designed by expatriate German luthier Roger Rossmeisl and introduced in 1958 and similar to the 340, the original 1997 differed largely in having the narrow violin type F shaped soundhole and a third pickup.
