❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335TD with Coil Tap Switch Walnut 1977

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335TD with Coil Tap Switch  Walnut 1977

The highly innovative Gibson ES335TD was an immediate hit when it was introduced in 1958, blending the resonance, attack and decay of an archtop with the sustain and feedback resistance of a solidbody. This feedback resistance was becoming extremely important both to guitarists and guitar designers as amplifiers became ever more powerful and stage volumes rose. These new models – the ES-335, ES-345 and ES-355 – also sported the new, Seth Lover designed Humbucking pickup.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker Manhattan Midnight, 2014

⚌Reduced‼  Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker Manhattan Midnight,  2014

The Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker appeared in 2014 as a 120th Anniversary model – a US made, reasonably priced high quality carved-top guitar with a solid history behind the names. The Melody Maker appeared in 1959 and built until 1971 as an entry level, thin slab Mahogany bodied single cutaway model, with one or two single coil pickups and a narrow headstock. The neck was Mahogany with a Rosewood fingerboard. For 1961, a second cutaway was added, but it wasn’t until 1967 that the Melody Maker got the ‘SG’ body shape.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Custom Shop SG Metallic Emerald Green, 1993

⚌Reduced‼ 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.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES175T Thinline Archtop Electric Wine Red, 1976

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES175T Thinline Archtop Electric Wine Red, 1976

The Gibson ES175T is based on the classic full bodied ES175, but with sides just over half the thickness. This model appeared in Gibson Catalogs from 1976 to 1979. Before being discontinued, approximately 333 were shipped in the Wine Red finish seen here, Natural, and Sunburst. Sporting a single Florentine (pointed) cutaway, the Gibson ES175T has some visual similarities to other models, like the ES125TDC, except that it has higher grade appointments and hardware.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson CS336 Compact Thinline Archtop Electric Burgundy, 2001

❌SOLD❌ Gibson CS336 Compact Thinline Archtop Electric Burgundy, 2001

While it has strong visual similarities to the popular ES-339, the Gibson CS336 compact thinline has significant differences in construction. Instead of using separate materials for the top, back and sides, the CS336 has back and sides carved from a single block of mahogany with a carved, book matched Flame maple top. The Gibson CS-336 came out of the Custom Shop in 2001, five years after the 1996 introduction of the ES-339.
