C. F. Martin D-28 Authentic 1937, 2014

C. F. Martin D-28 Authentic 1937,  2014

The C. F. Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 is a re-creation of an iconic instrument, the pre-WW2 Martin D-28. Production of these guitars was disrupted by the onset of war, and changes in supply chains rippled through post war production. This example was built during 2014 in Nazareth, Pennsylvania pairing an Adirondack Spruce top with Madagascar Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Mahogany for the neck, and Ebony for the bridge and unbound fingerboard.

Hofner Club Bass Cavern Spacing, Amber Burst 2018

Hofner Club Bass Cavern Spacing, Amber Burst 2018

This new Hofner Club Bass offers a couple of special features. The top and back are nicely flamed, and the bass is finished in an amber shaded varnish. The pickups are placed in ‘Cavern Spacing’, meaning the neck and middle positions are used. While this seems counter intuitive, it’s done because in the bridge position, signal can be fairly weak, and those pickups are often not used. The middle position gets a much stronger signal from the strings.

SOLD!!! Hofner 500-1 1964 Reissue Violin Bass Left Handed, 2011

SOLD!!! Hofner 500-1 1964 Reissue Violin Bass Left Handed, 2011

The Hofner Violin Bass first appeared in public during 1956, and Hofner’s intent was to encourage double bass players in beat and jazz groups to shift to electric. In many ways, this intention was similar to Leo Fender’s in introducing the Precision Bass in 1951. The benefits were immediately apparent and these new electric basses started appearing on stages, especially in early rock groups.

SOLD!!! Gibson Explorer Koa Natural, 2004

SOLD!!! Gibson Explorer Koa Natural, 2004

By the late 1950’s Gibson head Ted McCarty was looking for futuristic, fresh new designs, and in 1958 the radically different Gibson Explorer, Flying V and supremely rare Moderne made appearances. None were successful at the time – fewer than 50 Explorers were built over a few years and the Moderne didn’t make it past prototype. Both the Explorer and Flying V were officially discontinued in 1959.
