⚌Reduced‼ Gibson S1 Solidbody Maple Natural, 1978

Here we’re looking at a Gibson S1 built in Nashville TN, with a date of April 19 1978. This guitar is built exclusively of Maple, used for the three-piece body, three-piece neck, and fingerboard. This example is in largely original condition, except for the bridge pickup. Some time ago, the original single coil was removed, put in the case, and replaced with what looks like a Duncan Hot Rails.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Custom Shop SG Metallic Emerald Green, 1993

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Custom Shop SG Metallic Emerald Green, 1993

Here we have another rarity – from September 1993, a Gibson Custom Shop SG in Emerald Green Metallic finish with gold hardware and pearloid pickguard! The Gibson SG had been produced for three years before it gained the name ‘SG’. It was originally introduced in 1961 as a complete redesign of the then-unpopular single cutaway, carved Maple top Les Paul model. An additional driving factor was addressing Fender’s characterization of Gibson as old-fashioned.

Collings I35DLXS Thinline Custom Single Pickup Cherry, 2008

Collings I35DLXS Thinline Custom Single Pickup Cherry, 2008

Here’s a real beauty – a Collings I35DLXS Thinline Custom with a carved, solid Flame Maple top and single Lollar Imperial pickup in the neck position. This  wonderful example was originally custom ordered through The Twelfth Fret during 2008, and has been used professionally. An interesting note about its use and condition is that  it’s really only been used in a seated position. Collings supplied a pair of strap pins, which are in the Ameritage case, but as part of the custom order did not drill holes for them or install them.

❌SOLD❌ Eastman T186MX Thinline Hollowbody Classic Sunburst, 2011

❌SOLD❌  Eastman T186MX Thinline Hollowbody Classic Sunburst, 2011

The Eastman company builds more arched top instruments than anyone else, and they apply their expertise to thinline archtop electrics like the Eastman T186MX. This model seems largely based on classic thinline hollowbodies like the Casino and ES-330. Featuring solid wood construction, the Eastman T186MX has a solid, carved flame Maple top, solid Mahogany sides and solid mahogany carved back with a support block under the bridge and tailpiece.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ESDT335 Thinline Archtop Lightburst, 2004

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ESDT335 Thinline Archtop Lightburst, 2004

Here’s a very nicely figured and very good condition Gibson ESDT335 in Lightburst finish, built during 2094 at the now-closed Gibson Memphis plant. The Gibson ESDT335 is a slight variation on the standard ES-335, with the ‘ES’ standing as always for ‘Electric Spanish’. ‘Spanish’ refers to how the guitar is held and played, with one of the few other primary designations being ‘EH’ for ‘Electric Hawaiian’

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

Originally released in 1958 the Flying V introduced a radical and futuristic body shape which became an iconic staple of rock and roll and heavy metal! The Gibson Flying V 2017 T pays tribute to design features that became common place through the 70’s while using alternate woods such as Grenadillo for the fretboard. The Gibson Flying V 2017 T uses a large double wing mahogany body attached to a slim taper mahogany neck, which is very fast playing with the ultimate access to the upper frets due to the body design. There is really no body mass getting in the way of your hand when reaching for the highest notes.
