❌SOLD❌ Collings City Limits Deluxe Sunburst, 2007

❌SOLD❌ Collings City Limits Deluxe Sunburst, 2007

The Collings City Limits Deluxe, part of the CL line, draws from the proven combination of a Maple cap on a Mahogany body, providing warmth, clarity and sustain. This Collings City Limits Deluxe was first shipped and sold in March of 2008, and as Collings assigns serial numbers at start of production – which can take three to six months per instrument – this guitar would have been started in late 2007. It’s in very good clean condition with minor wear.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES135 Cutaway Thinline Archtop Sunburst, 1996

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES135 Cutaway Thinline Archtop Sunburst, 1996

The single cutaway, thinline Gibson ES135, built from 1991 to 2004 started out as a quite different guitar – the 1954 ES-130 non-cutaway archtop electric, renamed the ES-135 in 1956 and discontinued in 1958.  For 1991, Gibson blended the ES-334 concept with the ES-175 body shape and added a pair of P-90 or humbucking pickups  and either a trapeze or stop tailpiece.  The model was discontinued in 2004. The Gibson ES135 shares many construction features with other ES (Electric Spanish) thinline models.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Memphis ES330 VOS Sunburst, 2013

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Memphis ES330 VOS Sunburst, 2013

The Gibson Memphis ES330 VOS model is now discontinued, along with the Memphis plant, but is a great re-creation of a late 1950’s ES-330. Introduced in 1959, the ES-330 took visual cues from the new and very successful ES-335, but is uses a fully hollow body without a solid center block. A pair of under-wound P-90s provide great tone. Until about 1963, the ES330 and its cousin the Epiphone Casino set the neck joint at the 16th fret but subsequently the joint was shifted to the 19th fret, allowing easier access to higher frets.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Satin Memphis Cherry, 2014

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Satin Memphis Cherry, 2014

The Gibson ES335 Satin was built in the now-closed Memphis plant as more affordable 335 with all the trimmings, traditional quality and sound. It features the same 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple body and Mahogany neck construction as higher-priced models. The same hardware is used, which in 2014 meant a pair of ’57 Classic pickups – in 2015, Burst Buckers were adopted. Dating to February 11 2014 and built in Memphis, this Gibson ES335 Satin is in very good condition with very light wear.
