❌SOLD❌ Gibson F2 Oval Hole Mandolin Sunburst, 1915

❌SOLD❌ Gibson F2 Oval Hole Mandolin Sunburst, 1915

Built from 1904 to 1934, the Gibson F2 Oval Hole mandolin featured the stylized ‘F’ body with scrollwork, but also an oval sound hole rather than F-holes. Oval sound holes seem to provide a bit more sound to the player, while F-hole models tend to project their sound outwards, further. It’s always fascinating to see an instrument like this Gibson F2 Oval Hole mandolin that dates to 1915, now over a century old and still in good playing condition. It is in largely original condition, though the original faux-tortoise pickguard is missing. The case is a newer lightweight model by Gator.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson GoldTop Les Paul P90s, 1968

❌SOLD❌ Gibson GoldTop Les Paul P90s, 1968

The Gibson GoldTop Les Paul first appeared in 1952 and was replaced in 1958 with the sunburst. The original design was dropped in 1961 and re-appeared in 1968. Until the 1954 introduction of the Custom, and 1955 Junior and Special, there was only one model – the Les Paul, available only with the Gold Top finish. The name ‘Les Paul Standard’ launched with the 1959 Sunburst, and along with the Custom model, continued through the transition to the SG body design. By 1968, demand for the Les Paul had increased dramatically, largely due to young Blues-Rock players like Keith Richards, Mike Bloomfield, and Eric Clapton.

❌SOLD❌  Music Man Sterling 4 HS Bass Natural, 2006

The Ernie Ball Music Man Sterling 4 was introduced in 1993 with a single pickup, Ash body, and Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard. In 2005, a second neck pickup became available. Music Man was founded in 1972 by Leo Fender, Forrest White and Tom Walker, originally named Tri-Sonix, then MusiTek and in 1974 became Music Man. Leo Fender was still bound by a 1965 non-competition agreement with CBS, so until 1975 he was a silent partner though he left the company in 1979.
