❌SOLD❌  Gibson SJ Round Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1957

Making their appearances in 1942, the Gibson SJ Round Shoulder Dreadnought, and the classic J-45 share much and their differences are largely cosmetic. Responding to the increasing demand for larger and louder guitars at the close of the Depression and start of WW2, the Gibson SJ Round Shoulder dreadnought – the Southern Jumbo – and the J-45 immediately met a positive reaction.

❌SOLD❌   Ryan Paradiso Grand Concert Steel String Guitar, 2020

Here we have a very special Ryan Paradiso Grand Concert model, built during 2020 in Southern California and with all of the Ryan appointments. It is rare to see one of these models on the used market. Kevin Ryan has been building guitars since 1987, while he was an engineer for Northrop AgroScience Lab, building models of jets for transonic wind tunnel testing. The necessarily extreme thoroughness and attention to detail carried over into his guitar designs, producing many innovations – not to mention great sounding guitars!

❌SOLD❌  David Nichols 00 Style Steel String Guitar, 2002

This David Nichols OO style guitar demonstrates Nichol’s high degree of familiarity with pearl inlay – it looks like it was easy for the builder to do, a sure sign that it isn’t. This David Nichols OO style guitar is a great example. Dave Nichols has spent decades doing custom inlay work, including a lot for the Martin Guitar company, and he’s chosen the classic designs and here, the ‘Style 41’ inlay set executed in Mother of Pearl and Abalone.

❌SOLD❌  Martin D-35 Dreadnought Steel String Natural, 2013

The Martin D-35 Dreadnought appeared in 1965 but made its catalog debut in 1966, and was a practical response to increasing demand for square-shouldered dreadnoughts.   Demand was so high for that specific body design that Gibson altered several round-shouldered models, including the iconic J-45 to the square-shouldered design.
