Gibson Country Western Model Natural, 1957

Gibson Country Western Model Natural, 1957

The Gibson Country Western Model debuted in 1955 as a miracle of rebranding – it is the classic Gibson SJ-N, Southern Jumbo Natural, with a new label! The SJ-N appeared in 1942, became the Country Western in 1955,  was again renamed the SJ-N in 1960,  and  finally dubbed the SJ Country Western in 1962.   The model was discontinued in 1977. The Gibson Country Western model, like the SJ-N, pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck.

Larrivee OM09 Indian Rosewood Natural, 2001

Larrivee OM09 Indian Rosewood Natural, 2001

The Larrivée OM09 is based on the classic Orchestra Model guitars that first appeared in the opening days of the 1930’s as banjo players migrated to guitar but found they needed access to more frets. These models provide a well-balanced tonal representation throughout the harmonic range with plenty of volume, making them ideal for fingerstyles or strumming. This Larrivée OM09 was built during 2001 at the Larrivée shop in Oxnard, California. It’s in overall good condition with a few small dents on the top edge of the headstock, and a lacquer crack along the center seam below the bridge.
