Gibson B25-12 12 String Acoustic Guitar with Pickup, 1965

Gibson B25-12 12 String Acoustic Guitar with Pickup, 1965

In the 1960’s, 12-strings like the Gibson B25-12 were very popular, and the 12 was found on many recordings, in Canada especially Gordon Lightfoot’s. Here we’re looking at a Gibson B25-12 from 1965, with some very practical modifications that make it a practical, gigging 12 string with a great vintage sound.

Gibson J200 VS Jumbo Vintage Sunburst, 1993

Gibson J200 VS Jumbo Vintage Sunburst, 1993

The Gibson J200 VS, for Vintage Sunburst, is one of the largest production acoustics and continues the reign of “The King of the Flat-Tops”. First appearing in 1938, the J-200 was immediately adopted by major country players. The original selling price was $200, with a $50 upcharge to have your name inlaid in the fingerboard. The J-200 has sometimes been named the SJ-200 (Super Jumbo), and outside of the war years 1944 to 1946, has been in regular production since its introduction.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SJ200 Jumbo Steel String Sunburst, 1951

❌SOLD❌  Gibson SJ200 Jumbo Steel String Sunburst, 1951

Introduced in 1938 and in constant production since then, the Gibson SJ200 is one of the largest and most recognisable steel string models. Here we’re looking at a very nicely preserved Gibson SJ200 dating to 1951 and built at the Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It is in overall rather good condition with some wear, but less than we often see on guitars approaching the 70 year old mark.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Dove Natural Top Square Shoulder Dreadnought, 1975

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Dove Natural Top Square Shoulder Dreadnought, 1975

In 1963 the Gibson Dove Natural Top was second from the top of the Gibson catalog, with a square shouldered dreadnought body and distinctive hand painted and inlaid pickguard.    The Dove first appeared in 1962 with a cherry sunburst finish. Until the 1960 Hummingbird, Gibson dreadnought acoustics used a round or ‘slope’ shouldered design, differentiating it from the square-shouldered Martin design. The classic J-45 has been a prime example of the slope shoulder, though it too shifted to square-shouldered in 1968 (and was discontinued in 1982; when reintroduced in 1984 it was again slope-shouldered).

Here we have another fairly rare guitar, at least for North America – a Gibson CF100E Tamio Okuda model, cutaway with P90 and in very good condition. For those in Japan, Tamio needs no introduction. One of Japan’s most popular guitarist/singer/producer/songwriters, Tamio Okuda has had an almost 30-year career in the Japanese scene. The Gibson Custom Shop CF100E Tamio Okuda  model was built as a limited edition model during 2014, based on Tamio Okuda’s own 1950’s guitar.  The top is solid Sitka Spruce, the back, sides and neck are mahogany (the profile copies Tamio’s guitar) with a rosewood fingerboard.
