Taylor 615ce Jumbo Cutaway Acoustic Natural, 2000

Taylor 615ce Jumbo Cutaway Acoustic Natural, 2000

The Taylor 615ce was built from 1998 to 2011 and used a cutaway version of Taylor’s Jumbo body style, pairing Sitka Spruce and highly figured Maple like other guitars in Taylor’s 600 series. The 615ce superseded the original 600 non-cutaway jumbo models, which were built from 1981 to 1998. Taylor Guitars as a company was founded in 1974 as a partnership between Bob Taylor and Kurt Lustig and has become one of the largest US based musical instrument manufacturers.

Eastman El Rey ER2 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 2006

Eastman El Rey ER2 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 2006

The Eastman El Rey ER2 is designed to produce a full archtop sound from a smaller, much lighter body – it is only 14 inches across, a bit bigger than a Gibson Les Paul. Otherwise it has a relatively typical archtop construction – solid, hand carved spruce top, solid and hand carved flame maple back, solid flame maple sides and neck, and ebony for the fingerboard, bridge base, and tailpiece cover.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom Gloss Black, 2002

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom Gloss Black, 2002

Making its first appearance for 1954 , the Gibson Les Paul Custom has long been the top of the line for many electric guitarists. During the 1950’s, the Custom differed from the rest of the Les Paul line in an invisible way. Unlike the other models with a Maple cap, the Custom had a carved Mahogany top.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Dove Natural Top Square Shoulder Dreadnought, 1975

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Dove Natural Top Square Shoulder Dreadnought, 1975

In 1963 the Gibson Dove Natural Top was second from the top of the Gibson catalog, with a square shouldered dreadnought body and distinctive hand painted and inlaid pickguard.    The Dove first appeared in 1962 with a cherry sunburst finish. Until the 1960 Hummingbird, Gibson dreadnought acoustics used a round or ‘slope’ shouldered design, differentiating it from the square-shouldered Martin design. The classic J-45 has been a prime example of the slope shoulder, though it too shifted to square-shouldered in 1968 (and was discontinued in 1982; when reintroduced in 1984 it was again slope-shouldered).

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Studio Memphis Ginger Burst, 2014

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Studio Memphis Ginger Burst, 2014

The Gibson ES335 Studio uses the same concepts as the standard ES-335 models, but reduces costs by simplifying appointments and using a Torrefied Maple fingerboard in place of Rosewood. The body is unbound, while the fingerboard has black binding that does not cover the ends of the frets, a practice that for Gibson only occurred at the Memphis plant. Built at the now-closed plant in Memphis Tennessee and Dating to April 15 2014, this Gibson ES335 Studio is in overall good condition with minor play wear.

Guild GSR X180 Archtop Electric Blonde, 2013 (No Longer Available)

Guild GSR X180 Archtop Electric Blonde, 2013 (No Longer Available)

Here’s a wonderful rarity and a natural blonde, a Guild GSR x180 archtop electric with a Spruce laminate top, dating to 2013. GSR stands for Guild Special Run, and this example is number 11 of 20 built. Originally, acoustic archtop guitars used solid, carved Spruce tops paired with solid, Maple for the sides and hand carved back. However, once pickups and amplifiers became more available and standard equipment, it was discovered that the tonal subtleties of the solid Spruce top could be overwhelmed by feedback.
