❌SOLD❌ Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard Mastertone Banjo, 2001

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard Mastertone Banjo, 2001

Built from 1994 until a devastating flood hit Nashville in 2010, the Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard banjo reproduced the classic banjo that used by Scruggs. At first, the model was just named ‘Earl Scruggs’. The word ‘Standard’ was added in 1992, because two newer Scruggs models were introduced for the 1992 year, the ’49 Classic and the Golden Deluxe. Gibson Banjos,  including the Gibson Earl Scruggs Standard Mastertone Banjo,  are no longer available.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Studio Lite M3 Trans Red, 1992

The Gibson Les Paul Studio Lite M3, or M-III was built from 1992 to 1994, and featured an HSH pickup configuration, five way switch plus another toggle, and a lighter weight body. The lighter weight was achieved by chambering the body, then refilling the chambers with inserts of lighter wood. Gibson named the inserted wood ‘Chromyte’ after its latin name, Ochroma lagopus, but it’s more commonly referred to as Balsa.

❌SOLD❌ Epiphone BB King Lucille Thinline Archtop Electric, 2015

❌SOLD❌  Epiphone BB King Lucille Thinline Archtop Electric, 2015

Based closely on the currently-discontinued Gibson signature model, the Epiphone BB King Lucille is an affordable and rather good entry into the world of thinline archtop electrics.  The late, great B B King continues to have an outsized influence on blues stylings. His use of tasteful restraint combined with a wicked vibrato and an outstanding voice provide many points of emulation for countless players. For many years, BB King used top of the line Gibson thinline electric guitars, primarily the ES-355 and ES-345. Because he was the frontman and band leader, his amps would be set to maximum with stage volume controlled from the guitar; this kept his attention to the audience.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson F12 Mandolin Sunburst, 1949

The Gibson F12 mandolin was built for two periods – from 1934 to 1937, and from 1948 to 1980. This example is one of 85 built during 1949. Gibson mandolins broke new ground when Orville Gibson combined traditional Mandolin and Violin designs in the closing years of the 19th century. To this point, mandolins mostly followed the European style with a bowl back and flat, folded top.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Flying V Faded Black, 2007

The Gibson Flying V Faded was built for the decade from 2002 to 2012, and uses a stripped-down concept to deliver a great, high quality working instrument at reduced cost. This model was mostly built with a faded Cherry finish and the black seen here was relatively unusual. Ted McCarty, the president of Gibson introduced the Flying V in 1958, along with the Explorer and the almost mythical Moderne.
