Gibson ES-125 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1954

Gibson ES-125 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1954

This Gibson ES-100 dates to 1954 and appears to be all original, though the pickguard is missing and the original case is long gone – it would have been faux-gator fibre (cardboard), and those often don’t age well. The hardware is typical of this period. For example, the Kluson Deluxe tuners have no lettering but do have the hole for the tuner post, and these were used from 1953 to mid 1956. Translucent Gold ‘Speed’ or ‘Hatbox’ type knobs are used.

Gibson ES-125 Archtop Electric with P-90, Sunburst 1961

Gibson ES-125 Archtop Electric with P-90, Sunburst 1961

The Gibson ES-125 made its debut in 1941 as a student model – an affordable archtop electric, of maple laminate, one pickup and little decoration. Originally fitted with a ‘Blade’ style pickup, by 1947 a standard P90 was used. Production lasted until 1970. In 1956, the new thin body ‘ES-125T’ appeared and was available with two pickups and a cutaway.

Gibson L-7 Archtop Acoustic Guitar Sunburst Refinish, 1947

Gibson L-7 Archtop Acoustic Guitar Sunburst Refinish, 1947

Like its more expensive sibling, the Gibson L-7 used a carved Spruce top, carved Maple back, with a Maple neck and Mahogany neck. The L-7 used Rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge. At the time this 1947 L-7 was built and into the 1950’s, ‘Rosewood’ meant ‘Brazilian Rosewood’. At this point, the inlays were the double-parallelogram design, still found on many models. The body is a full 17 inches across – it is a big guitar – but the scale length is standard Gibson 24.75 inches.

❌SOLD❌ Taylor 556 12 String Acoustic Guitar, 2017

❌SOLD❌ Taylor 556 12 String Acoustic Guitar, 2017

The Taylor 556 12-string Grand Symphony is now discontinued and replaced by models like the 552ce and 562ce Grand Concert. Still, it shows why Taylor took over the spot for ‘King of the 12-String Jumbo’. The Grand Symphony body shape is a full size jumbo, roughly equivalent to the Gibson J-200 or Guild F55. It provides a lot of output power and when built using a Spruce top paired with Mahogany back and sides, delivers that with sparkle, clarity and articulation.
