Eastman Romeo SC Thinline Archtop Electric, Red Burst

Eastman Romeo SC Thinline Archtop Electric, Red Burst

The Eastman Romeo SC is a new limited edition thinline and largely hollow archtop electric design by Otto D’Ambrosio at the Eastman Custom Shop in California. Intended as an imagining of what ‘The Telecaster of the Archtop World’ would be, the Romeo started with defining its balance and player’s hand positions. The body is fairly small at 14.75 inches across, and the ‘Single Cut’ design gives plenty of access to the fretboard.

Gibson ES350T Short Scale Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1956

Gibson ES350T Short Scale Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1956

The thin-bodied, short scale Gibson ES350T appeared in 1955, replacing the full size ES-350 and was much like a plainer version of the Venetian-cutaway Byrdland, which also debuted that year. When launched, the fully hollow ES-350T featured laminate Maple construction largely for feedback resistance and lower production cost, but a number of versions shared the Byrdland’s Spruce top and carved Maple back and sides.

Stelling Golden Cross Gospel Banjo, 1978

Stelling Golden Cross Gospel Banjo, 1978

Here we have a Stelling Golden Cross Gospel banjo, built of Black Walnut during 1978 in Afton, Virginia with a raised, rather than inlaid, rear cross. One other Gospel model like this is known to have been built for Ralph Stanley with the serial number 428.  The current Golden Cross models do not have the rear cross.  The Stelling Golden Cross Gospel is based closely on the stock Golden Cross, with the primary difference being the headstock inlays.

Gibson Les Paul Custom Gloss Black, 2002

Gibson Les Paul Custom Gloss Black, 2002

Making its first appearance for 1954 , the Gibson Les Paul Custom has long been the top of the line for many electric guitarists. During the 1950’s, the Custom differed from the rest of the Les Paul line in an invisible way. Unlike the other models with a Maple cap, the Custom had a carved Mahogany top.

Ibanez Musician MC500 Solidbody Dark Stain, 1979

Ibanez Musician MC500 Solidbody Dark Stain, 1979

The Ibanez Musician MC500 appeared as Ibanez hit its stride and moved away from straight copies of US models, and was built from late 1977 as a 1978 model to 1980. The Musician series used a multi-piece, neck-through design and active electronics, all quite possibly influenced by the Alembic instruments of the day. Overall, the goal was to provide maximum sustain, stability and tonal versatility in a professional grade package.
