Heritage H-575 Antique Natural, 1994

Heritage H-575 Antique Natural, 1994

The Heritage H-575, built at the historic Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan takes visual cues from the classic Gibson ES-175, but there are major differences in construction and materials. When Gibson introduced the ‘ES’ or ‘Electric Spanish’ designation, archtops were the most commonly used models on bandstands because of their superior volume and projection.

Gretsch G6120 FTM Player's Edition Orange, 2016

This is a real treat – a Gretsch G6120 FTM Player’s Edition, with a spectacular flame maple body, string-through Bigsby, pinned bridge, and locking tuners! This is a seriously good guitar, and these modern examples are among the best Gretsch has ever produced. Gretsch introduced the 6120 in 1954 and it was an immediate hit, adopted by many of the top players like Chet Atkins and Eddie Cochrane.

❌SOLD❌  Gretsch G6128T-59 Vintage Select ’59 Duo Jet Black, 2021

This Gretsch G6128T-59 Vintage Select ’59 Duo Jet is about as near-mint as it gets, while still technically being a used example. ’59 Duo Jet is about as near-mint as it gets, while still technically being a used example. With its construction dating to March of 2021 and built by Terada at Nagoya, Japan, this has had so little use that the protective paper liner is still underneath the Ebony base for the Space Control bridge.

Taylor AB-2 Acoustic Bass Imbuia, 2000 ❌SOLD❌

Taylor AB-2 Acoustic Bass Imbuia, 2000 ❌SOLD❌

Here we have a Taylor AB-2 Acoustic Bass, designed by Steve Klein and Bob Taylor with a single cutaway, Manzer Wedge style Imbuia body. The Wedge reduces the body depth on the bass side from six inches to 4.375 inches, and this has two primary effects. First, it’s easier and less fatiguing for the player’s arm. Second, the wedge has the effect of increasing the sonic output towards the player.  Linda Manzer  introduced the wedge feature on the 1984, 42-string ‘Pikasso’  guitar for Pat Metheney, and subsequently described it in a 1989 presentation to the Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans.
