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!!! Fender Precision Bass Black Refinish, 1959

SOLD!!! Fender Precision Bass Black Refinish, 1959

This vintage Fender Precision Bass built during 1959. It’s been used as intended and has played countless shows around Ontario, Canada – attested to by the stickers on the original tweed case. Somewhere in the dim and distant past, the alder body’s original finish was removed and a black finish was applied. The refinish itself has an amount of honest play wear. The neck is the standard one-piece Maple Fender design, and its finish is original, with the smooth wear and patina that only comes from decades of use.

SOLD!!! Gibson ES-345 TD Left Hand Conversion Refinish, 1979

SOLD!!! Gibson ES-345 TD Left Hand Conversion Refinish, 1979

The Gibson ES-345 TD is the mid level in the thinline ES series, but sometimes it has been hard to find a left handed version. Consequently, players take various approaches to accomodate the orientation, from simply adapting technique to flipping the guitar over. Here, the controls were moved to the other side of the top and the bridge shifted to intonate properly.
