Sold! Gibson SJ-100 1941 Reissue Sunburst, 2013

Sold!  Gibson SJ-100 1941 Reissue Sunburst, 2013

Built in Bozeman, Montana and for the moment out of production, the Gibson SJ-100 1941 Reissue recreates the sound and feel of the pre-war Mahogany body jumbo. The Super Jumbo body style appeared in 1938 and is best known for the J-200 model, with Spruce top and Maple for the back and sides, and often highly decorated beyond the hand-painted pickguard. In 1939, the less expensive and less decorated SJ-100 appeared, with a Spruce top, but with Mahogany for the back and sides and with a much plainer – and thinner – pickguard.

❌ Sold ❌  C. F. Martin 000-18 Custom Shop Figured Mahogany, 2015

This C. F. Martin 000-18 custom shop model dates to 2015 and uses higher grade figured woods and subtle decoration to improve on a classic design. The first samples of the 000 body date to 1902, and one 000-18 was built, using Maple for the back and sides, during 1906. In 1911, three were made, and by 1923 sales numbers started to increase into the hundreds. In 1933, 14-fret necks started to appear and soon became standard.

❌ Sold ❌ C. F. Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Signature, 2006

❌ Sold ❌ C. F. Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Signature, 2006

The C F Martin company based the 000-28EC model on the guitar Eric Clapton leaned on for his 1992 ‘Unplugged’ MTV performance. The C. F. Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Signature is a very well balanced guitar, producing wonderful results for fingerstyle and picking. As a ’28’ style guitar, it pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate; the neck and body blocks are Mahogany, and the unbound fingerboard and bridge are Ebony. It has ‘Herringbone’ style binding – which would not have been on a 1966 model!
