Maton FG100 Steel String Guitar, 1986

Maton FG100 Steel String Guitar, 1986

Here is another rarity for North America – a Maton FG100 /6, built in Victoria, Australia during July of 1986. It is one of the last, if not the last, built when this model was discontinued in 1986. It also has a secondary label from its original seller – Ivor Mairants Musicentre in the London’s West End! Maton guitars are not commonly distributed in North America. One of the best known Maton artists is the great Tommy Emmanuel, and we’re very happy to link to a video of him using a Maton – though not this model.

Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Black, 1988

Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Black, 1988

Designed to express class and quality, the Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Black with gold plated appointments appeared in 1954 and has been top of the range since. From introduction until the single-cutaway Les Paul design was dropped in 1961, the Custom lacked the Maple cap the other carved-top models had and was all-Mahogany. When the design was re-introduced in 1968 and to the present day, that changed and the basic construction has been the same as for the other models.

⚌Reduced‼  Taylor 615ce Jumbo Cutaway Acoustic Natural, 2000

The Taylor 615ce was built from 1998 to 2011 and used a cutaway version of Taylor’s Jumbo body style, pairing Sitka Spruce and highly figured Maple like other guitars in Taylor’s 600 series. The 615ce superseded the original 600 non-cutaway jumbo models, which were built from 1981 to 1998. Taylor Guitars as a company was founded in 1974 as a partnership between Bob Taylor and Kurt Lustig and has become one of the largest US based musical instrument manufacturers.

Collings CJ35 GSB Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 2013

Collings CJ35 GSB Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 2013

The Collings CJ35 GSB is a spectacular guitar, evoking the looks feel and tone of generally unavailable vintage pieces – but with very high build and finish quality. This 2013 example is in great condition with very little wear of any kind, and is sold with its original Collings branded hard shell case. The Collings CJ35 is normally built with a Sitka Spruce top, but here as noted in the ‘GSB’ part of the name, German Spruce was chosen for the top, and there’s a traditional dark Sunburst finish.
