❌SOLD❌Guild X150 Savoy Cutaway Single Pickup Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1961

The Guild X150 Savoy is a single cutaway carved Spruce top guitar, built from 1954 to 1965 in single and dual pickup (X150D) models and natural or sunburst finishes.  Currently, the new Guild Guitar company under Ren Ferguson – who ran the Gibson Acoustic shop in Bozeman –  offers the Guild A-150 Savoy model, with a neck-mount deArmond pickup.  Guild’s origins spring from the Epiphone company’s labour troubles following the death of founder Epi Stathopoulos in 1943.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES330TD Thinline Cherry, 1966

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES330TD Thinline Cherry, 1966

The design for the Gibson ES330TD – the TD stands for Two Pickup, Double Cutaway – was an outgrowth of Gibson president Ted McCarty’s desire to offer a new, modern guitar to jazz players. The first item on the list was double cutaways, which at the time were not available on really any archtop guitars. The first model to use this format, and with a solid center block to reduce feedback, was the 1958 ES-335. The ES-355 and ES-345 soon followed, and to round out the line, the fully hollow Gibson ES300TD was added.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Gold Top, 1953

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Gold Top, 1953

The Gibson Les Paul Gold Top appeared in 1952 and rapidly began evolving and improving until reaching a fairly stable form in 1954. Initially, the Les Paul was equipped with a Les Paul-designed bridge-trapeze tailpiece combination, but also a very low neck angle. By early 1953, the trapeze was replaced with a stop-bar bridge. Soon after, the new ABR-1 bridge, known as the Tune-O-Matic, was added paired with a stop tailpiece.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul GoldTop Refinish, 1952

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul GoldTop Refinish, 1952

Introduced in 1952, the Gibson Les Paul GoldTop was Gibson’s first foray into the brand new solidbody electric guitar market. With the now standard carved Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, a metal-flake Gold finish was applied to the top to increase its ‘upmarket’ appeal. The carved top was certainly a nod towards the archtops that Gibson was already well established in making, but importantly, Gibson had the equipment to do this, and Fender did not.

Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1962

Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1962

Gibson first introduced the Les Paul Junior with their 1954 model lineup as their lowest price student model, with one pickup and no frills. It kept that position until 1959, when it was bumped by the Melody Maker. From 1954, the Les Paul Junior had a profile very much like the Les Paul itself – it looked like the Les Paul’s Mahogany back, just without the carved Maple cap. For 1958, Gibson was shifting to double cutaway bodies, reflected in the brand new ES-335, and the Junior also got a double cutaway treatment.
