❌SOLD❌ Hofner Model 182E2 Solid Bass Red Tolex, 1963

❌SOLD❌ Hofner Model 182E2 Solid Bass Red Tolex, 1963

The Hofner Model 182E2 or ‘Solid Bass’ when sold by Selmer, was built at Bubenreuth Bavaria from 1962 to 1985, and was also available in a single pickup ‘E1’ model. While Hofner is best known worldwide for the Model 5000/1 violin shaped ‘Beatle Bass’ used by Paul McCartney, they also made many solidbody guitars and basses. The Hofner Model 182E2 uses many of the same components as its more famous cousin, including the pickups, electronics package and ‘Teacup’ control knobs. The scale length is 30 inches or 762mm, the same as the Beatle Bass models.

❌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.

‼️New Stock • Eastman T59 V Thinline Archtop Electric Antique Varnish

‼️New Stock • Eastman T59 V Thinline Archtop Electric Antique Varnish

The Eastman T59 V is a take on one of the most successful and influential of Ted McCarty’s innovations, the thinline, semi-hollow archtop electric guitar. Around 1957, Gibson was looking to update its product line to address a number of issues, one of which was the rise in amplified stage volumes causing feedback. While the engineering team is credited with most of the design, it was apparently president Ted McCarty’s idea to put a solid Maple block through the center of the guitar.

Gibson Custom Le Grande Archtop Electric Natural, 2008

Gibson Custom Le Grande Archtop Electric Natural, 2008

Here is a rare beauty – a Gibson Custom Le Grande archtop electric model from 2008, the successor to the classic Johnny Smith model built from 1961 to 1989. The Le Grande made its debut in 1993 and while it hasn’t appeared on Gibson’s website or catalog since around 2010, is still available on special order. The ‘stock’ finish is a Vintage Sunburst, with the Natural finish seen here as an extra-cost option. Always intended for the serious professional guitarist and never in mass production, the Gibson Custom Le Grande features a 17 inch wide body with carved, solid Sitka Spruce top, carved solid and highly figured Maple back and figured maple sides.
