NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Gibson B25-12 12 String Acoustic Guitar with Pickup, 1965

In the 1960’s, 12-strings like the Gibson B25-12 were very popular, and the 12 was found on many recordings, in Canada especially Gordon Lightfoot’s. Here we’re looking at a Gibson B25-12 from 1965, with some very practical modifications that make it a practical, gigging 12 string with a great vintage sound.

Epiphone Texan FT79N Steel String Natural, 1966

Epiphone Texan FT79N Steel String Natural, 1966

The Epiphone Texan FT79N – the N indicating a Natural finish on the top rather than Sunburst – was built as a slope shoulder dreadnought from 1958 to 1970 when Epiphone production ceased in the USA. The Epiphone FT79 was originally built from 1941 to 1958 as a square shoulder dreadnought with Walnut back and sides until 1949, and then with laminated Maple until the company was sold to Gibson in 1958.

❌SOLD❌ Martin D12 20 12 String Guitar Natural, 1968

❌SOLD❌ Martin D12 20 12 String Guitar Natural, 1968

The Martin D12 20 was a slope shouldered, 12-fret 12 string guitar built from 1964 to 1991 with a Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany for the sides, back and neck. Here we’re looking at a Martin D12 20 dating to February of 1968 and built at the Martin plant in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. As a ’20’ model, it is very close to an ’18’ and the key differentiating component is the ‘zipper’ back strip. The top is Sitka Spruce – Adirondack Spruce had been overharvested during WW2 and it would still be decades for recovery. The sides, back, and slotted-headstock neck are Honduran Mahogany and, by the time this post-1967 guitar was built, Indian Rosewood was used for the head plate, bridge and unbound fingerboard.
