Gibson Country Western Model Natural, 1957

Gibson Country Western Model Natural, 1957

The Gibson Country Western Model debuted in 1955 as a miracle of rebranding – it is the classic Gibson SJ-N, Southern Jumbo Natural, with a new label! The SJ-N appeared in 1942, became the Country Western in 1955,  was again renamed the SJ-N in 1960,  and  finally dubbed the SJ Country Western in 1962.   The model was discontinued in 1977. The Gibson Country Western model, like the SJ-N, pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck.

❌SOLD❌ Fender 72 Reissue Stratocaster Made in Japan Natural, 1994

Here’s a Fender 72 Reissue Stratocaster in Natural finish, built during 1994 for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen at Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture. This is not a Squier model, but a Fender branded Strat intended for sale in the Japanese market. Fender Japan began in 1982 as a joint venture between Fender (then under CBS ownership), Yamano Gakki (distributor of Fender and Gibson products) and Kanda Shokai (another prominent Japanese distributor) and lasted until 2015.

❌SOLD❌ Eastman MD904D Two Point Mandolin Natural, 2010

❌SOLD❌  Eastman MD904D Two Point Mandolin Natural, 2010

The Eastman MD904D Two Point oval hole mandolin follows the modified A Style or ‘teardrop’ pioneered by Orville Gibson around 1900. This model perhaps most resembles the Gibson A5 two point, built from 1957 to 1979.   As an oval hole model, it will have a somewhat warmer tone compared to the percussive ‘chop’ of an F-hole model.  Featuring a solid, carved Sitka Spruce top paired with carved, solid Flame Maple back, with matching Flamed Maple for the sides and neck and binding, and with gold plated hardware, this Eastman MD904D Two Point was built during 2010 near Beijing and is in good shape with minor wear.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Natural Finish, 1972

For most of the time since its 1954 introduction, the Fender Stratocaster has been very popular and has been available in a myriad of colours, though natural has not always been one of them. The first versions were often sunburst or translucent white, but automotive based colour schemes followed quickly.
