❌SOLD❌Guild X150 Savoy Cutaway Single Pickup Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1961

The Guild X150 Savoy is a single cutaway carved Spruce top guitar, built from 1954 to 1965 in single and dual pickup (X150D) models and natural or sunburst finishes.  Currently, the new Guild Guitar company under Ren Ferguson – who ran the Gibson Acoustic shop in Bozeman –  offers the Guild A-150 Savoy model, with a neck-mount deArmond pickup.  Guild’s origins spring from the Epiphone company’s labour troubles following the death of founder Epi Stathopoulos in 1943.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1962

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1962

Gibson first introduced the Les Paul Junior with their 1954 model lineup as their lowest price student model, with one pickup and no frills. It kept that position until 1959, when it was bumped by the Melody Maker. From 1954, the Les Paul Junior had a profile very much like the Les Paul itself – it looked like the Les Paul’s Mahogany back, just without the carved Maple cap. For 1958, Gibson was shifting to double cutaway bodies, reflected in the brand new ES-335, and the Junior also got a double cutaway treatment.

❌SOLD❌ National Val Pro 82 Vermillion Red, 1962

The National Val Pro 82 was the single-pickup version of the ‘Map Body’ Val Pro line, built during 1962 and 1963 by Valco in Chicago, Illinois.  National itself began in 1927 with the invention of the Resophonic guitar, but in 1928 the original builders – the Dopyera brothers – left to form Dobro, and in 1932 the Dopyera’s bought a controlling interest in National and merged the two companies.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1963

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst,  1963

Originally built between 1958 and 1972, the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 was the Sunburst version of the two-tone 6125 model, both based on the successful 6120 Chet Atkins model. In its first two years, the Anniversary 6124/6125 carried a single Filter ‘Tron humbucking pickup at the neck, but from 1961 a single coil Hi-Lo ‘Tron was used. The basic structure or bones of the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 is very similar to the 6120, with a fully hollow, 16 inch wide body using parallel tone bar bracing and no sound post.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Esquire Solidbody Guitar Blonde, 1967

❌SOLD❌ Fender Esquire Solidbody Guitar Blonde, 1967

The Fender Esquire was the single pickup version of Leo Fender’s groundbreaking guitar, and appeared in 1950 with the short-lived Broadcaster, soon renamed Telecaster after a copyright notice from Gretsch, who used that name on a drum line. Structurally, they are virtually identical – many Esquires use Telecaster bodies and necks. The differences between the Esquire and Telecaster revolve around the single pickup. The pickguard is not cut, and the 3-way switch wiring provides a setting with a capacitor-resistor network simulating a neck pickup.
