Sold -  Gibson LG-1 Ladder Braced Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 1953

Here we’re looking at a lovely Gibson LG-1 Ladder built during 1953. Many of these guitars do not have serial numbers as such, rather they have a FON or Factory Order Number. On this guitar, the FON is Y6452 30, and the relevant character is the Y. This FON series started in 1952 with the letter Z, and counted back towards A, each year.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker Electro Model NS Lap Steel, 1948

The Rickenbacker lap steel was possibly the very first successful electric guitar put into larger scale production, but Rickenbacker’s influence goes back to the early National days. Adolph Rickenbacker – then spelled Richenbacher – had a tool and die shop near National, and was contracted to produce metal bodies and resonator cones for National guitars, ukuleles and mandolins.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson ES-300 1946 Sunburst Electric Archtop Guitar

The Gibson ES-300 was built from 1940 to 1952 as Gibson’s premiere electric guitar, but production halted during WW2 and restarted in 1946. Originally built with all solid woods, on its reintroduction the sides and back were normally laminates, as these resist feedback, an important issue with amplification.
