⚌Reduced‼  Breedlove Quartz OF A-Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2005

The Breedlove Quartz OF is an A-Style mandolin, the ‘O’ indicating an Oval body and the F, F Holes. Like other Breedlove mandolins, it has been out of production since 2016. ‘Quartz’ is the term Breedlove assigned to their entry-level US built mandolins.   That name is possibly a reference to a mountain not far from the Breedlove shop, then located in Tumalo, Oregon.

G&L SB-2 USA Solidbody Electric Bass Sunburst, 2007

G&L SB-2 USA Solidbody Electric Bass Sunburst, 2007

Introduced in 1998, the G&L SB-2 bass represents a blending of Leo Fender’s two major bass designs into what’s now called a P-J configuration. The P-J concept appeared in the 1970’s as bassists, guitarists and third party companies sought ways to extend the sounds of their instruments. For bassists, an obvious step was to give a Precision Bass a Jazz Bass bridge pickup, hence the P-J designation. This setup was immediately popular and has worked its way into many production and custom instruments.

Gretsch Broadkaster JR Player's Edition G6659T-DCHFM Bourbon, 2016

This is a real treat – a Gretsch Broadkaster Jr Player’s Edition G6659T with center block, locking tuners and string-through Bigsby!  This guitar is an example of a ‘downsizing’ trend seen in other models like the Gibson ES-336 and ES-339, essentially versions of the ES-335 design, with full scale length but with reduced-size bodies.
