Gibson Golden Axe Explorer, Gold Burst, 2013

Here is an unusual guitar – a Gibson Golden Axe Explorer, built during 2013 at the Gibson Nashville plant and sporting a pair of LACE™ Nitro Hemi humbucker pickups! Originally built for Bill Kelliher of Mastodon, the Gibson Golden Axe Explorer is based on the classic Explorer design. The body is solid Mahogany, with a Mahogany neck topped with a Rosewood fingerboard. Unlike typical Explorer models, the body and neck are both bound.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop ’69 Stratocaster Relic White, 2006

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop '69 Stratocaster Relic White, 2006

Here we’re looking at a Fender Custom Shop ’69 Stratocaster in the Relic version, built during 2006 at the Fender plant in Corona, California. It’s in very good condition with only light wear – beyond the relic treatment! Closely following 1969 specs, the body is Alder and the neck is Maple. There’s no ‘skunk stripe’ on the back of the neck – the rolled-edge fingerboard is a piece of Maple, applied in the same way a Rosewood board would be, and the truss rod was installed from the front of the neck before the fingerboard was installed.

‼️SOLD‼️ Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. White, 2016

‼️SOLD‼️ Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. White, 2016

This Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. in Vintage White, is a great little guitar and is a new model. Blending influences from three sources – the classic Gretsch White Falcon, the Jet body design, and the new Gretsch Players models. Aside from being very flashy, this is a great playing and sounding guitar.
Every once in a while, something built as a promotional item for an industry trade show really takes off, gets more intention than expected and is put into production. This was the case with the 1954 Gretsch White Falcon, intended to show off the elegance and quality of the Gretsch electric archtop line at the 1954 NAMM trade show in California.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Explorer Vintage White, 2008

The Gibson Explorer has been a more or less regular production model since then in a number of variations, mostly finding a home in harder rock bands; it’s seldom seen on Country stages. This Gibson Explorer in Vintage White has a simple construction – Mahogany for the body and neck, and Ebony for the fingerboard. 496R and 498T pickups are installed and controlled by a pickup selector, individual volume and a master tone control.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch White Falcon G6126TLH Left Handed Archtop, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch White Falcon G6126TLH Left Handed Archtop, 2005

It’s unusual enough to run across the Gretsch White Falcon, but to see one with 1950’s style Trestle bracing AND Left Handed is another thing entirely! Originally created as a showpiece for the annual winter 1955 NAMM music trade show in Anaheim, California, the Gretsch White Falcon received an unexpected level of interest – and orders.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass, 2011

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass, 2011

Here’s something unusual a Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass dating to November 2011. We rarely see these basses; they were not produced with the original 1950’s versions of the White Falcon, and first appeared around 2006 as a new model built for Gretsch at the Japan Terada plant (hence the JT at the start of the serial number). This plant builds many really excellent quality instruments.
The Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass uses a fully hollow, arched Maple laminate body with tone bar bracing, and a 34-inch scale Maple neck with bound Ebony fingerboard, and with the engraved gold-plated “THE WHITE FALCON” plaque on the Falcon-styled headstock. It’s a White Falcon, so of course all of the binding is Gold Sparkle.
