❌SOLD❌  Ken Smith Bass Cherry, Walnut and Maple, 1985

Since the late 1970s, the Ken Smith Bass has been a benchmark for innovative, high quality custom instruments designed for use in studio, performance and touring situations. Featuring the use of different wood types, Ken Smith has built a huge range of basses for working pros, and are often used by Jazz and Gospel players. Ken Smith started off in his teens building basses for himself, and is largely self taught.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch 6120 Double Cutaway Thinline Electric, Orange 1962

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch 6120 Double Cutaway Thinline Electric, Orange 1962

In 1962, the Gretsch 6120 Double Cutaway model appeared, displacing the classic but aging single-cutaway deep body 6120 and bearing the new, sealed Electrotone body. This closed body first appeared on the 1961 Tennessean.The new double cutaway version came about through a number of influences. In particular, Gibson hand introduced their very successful ES-335 models, and Chet Atkins felt the Electrotone body worked better at stage volumes.

SOLD! Gretsch '59 Silver Jet G6129T-59 Silver Sparkle

The Gretsch ’59 Silver Jet is a very cool guitar, with all the late-50’s trappings – Bigsby, TV Jones Classic Filter’Tron based pickups, and a standout silver sparkle finish! The Gretsch Jet is an under-rated guitar, but has appeared on many hit recordings. Chet Atkins used one on many classic recordings, and the first few Beatles albums feature George Harrison with his Jet.
