⚌Reduced‼ Gibson SG Supreme Fireburst, 2002

⚌Reduced‼  Gibson SG Supreme Fireburst, 2002

The Gibson SG Supreme was built from 1999 to 2009 and features a figured Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, paired with a Mahogany neck and bound Richlite fingerboard. At first, the SG Supreme was equipped with a pair of P-90 pickups, but these were phased out in favour of Humbuckers over the year 2000 and into 2001. In 2002, the ‘Fireburst’ finish seen here started rising from the tail of the guitar, rather than the traditional burst with dark edges and lighter center.

❌SOLD❌ Ron Kirn Basic T Signature Swamp Ash Natural, 2008

The Ron Kirn Basic T is just what it sounds like – a basic T style guitar, very well built, well finished and with high quality components throughout. Ron Kirn has been building, repairing and finishing guitars in Jacksonville, Florida since the 1970s. At the time, custom builds were the only way of getting high quality T and S style guitars, as the production quality of major manufacturers was at possibly its lowest point.

Eastman DT30OM Double Top Orchestra Model

The Eastman DT30OM is the second model in Eastman’s new Double Top line, bringing high end classical guitar technology to the steel string world – here in a classic Orchestra Model body design. The double top concept aims to allow a very thin, light and responsive top but with superior strength and stiffness. Here, thin layers of Sitka Spruce are bonded to a honeycomb Nomex core. Nomex is a Kevlar polymer and helps provide significant improvements in stiffness to weight ratios.

Eastman E8OM Steel String Guitar, Natural

Eastman E8OM Steel String Guitar, Natural

The Eastman E8OM features all solid wood construction and a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The top, with Herringbone purfling, is Sitka Spruce, the sides, back and headplate Indian Rosewood. The body blocks and dovetail-joint neck are Mahogany, with Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. Unusually, the fingerboard also appears to have a light coat of clear lacquer.   The inlays are subtle, small snowflakes in Abalone.  The example seen here is strictly acoustic, but it is available with an L R Baggs pickup system.

Vega C56 Archtop Guitar Natural, 1940

Vega C56 Archtop Guitar Natural, 1940

Built to compete with the Gibson L-7 and Epiphone Triumph, the Vega C56 Archtop was built from the 1930s until 1950. It was was Vega’s most popular full sized guitar and featured a solid Spruce top with Maple sides and back, Mahogany neck and Rosewood fingerboard. Here we have a Vega C56 archtop in the natural finish introduced in 1940. The serial number is somewhat below other models known to have been produced in 1940, so there’s a possibility this example was built in 1939. The top is solid Spruce, likely Adirondack.
