Gibson ES-125 Archtop Electric with P-90, Sunburst 1961

Gibson ES-125 Archtop Electric with P-90, Sunburst 1961

The Gibson ES-125 made its debut in 1941 as a student model – an affordable archtop electric, of maple laminate, one pickup and little decoration. Originally fitted with a ‘Blade’ style pickup, by 1947 a standard P90 was used. Production lasted until 1970. In 1956, the new thin body ‘ES-125T’ appeared and was available with two pickups and a cutaway.

Duesenberg Starplayer Special Creme and Black, 2002

Duesenberg Starplayer Special Creme and Black, 2002

Introduced in 2002, the Duesenberg Starplayer Special uses the classic bolt-on design, with a full 25.5 inch scale maple neck on and alder body with humbucking pickups. The neck sports an Indian Rosewood fingerboard,  with Mother of Pearl dot inlays.  It is a straightforward guitar, delivering exactly what it advertises. This early Duesenberg Starplayer Special, built during 2002 – the first year of production – is in very clean, all original condition. It plays very well and has just the slightest wear, even to the frets. The original Duesenberg hard shell case is included.

Built between 1987 and 1998 at the Gibson Nashville plant, the Les Paul Studio Lite features classic Les Paul construction, but without binding, and with an ebony fingerboard.

Ibanez AS80 Artist Thinline Electric Cherry, 1983

Ibanez AS80 Artist  Thinline Electric Cherry, 1983

Produced in the early 1980’s in Japan and not as common as the much fancier AS100 and AS200 models, the Ibanez AS80 was the equivalent of an ES-335. This guitar is from the period when Ibanez fully established themselves as a builder of high quality guitars that were not simply straight copies of US models. Built using maple laminates for the body, and solid maple for the center block and rosewood-fingerboard neck, the AS80 is a straight ahead thinline archtop electric lacking the ‘bling’ of the higher-numbered models.
