Gibson ES175D Cutaway Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1968

The 175 was built of Maple laminates, to reduce both feedback and prices. Joe Pass, Kenny Burrell, Joe Diorio, Toots Thielmans, Wes Montgomery, Pat Martino, Herb Ellis, Howard Roberts, Jimmy Raney, Pat Metheny – all at one time in their careers played and recorded with the venerable Gibson ES175D.

Gibson CS336 Compact Thinline Archtop Electric Burgundy, 2001

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.

⚌Reduced‼ PRS 513 Solidbody Carved Top Amber, 2008

⚌Reduced‼ PRS 513 Solidbody Carved Top Amber, 2008

Like all of Paul Reed Smith’s models, the PRS 513 starts with a great design, executed with top grade woods and parts and topped with an impeccable finish. Now discontinued, this model was built from 2007 to 2016. This PRS 513 dates to 2008 and is in good condition. It is not entirely original as the stock tuners have been replaced with PRS Phase II locking models. The top finish is in good shape but there is some buckle or rivet rash on the back. Fret wear is light.

Fender 1965 Precision Bass Sunburst

Fender 1965 Precision Bass Sunburst

The 3-tone Sunburst Fender 1965 Precision bass with Rosewood fingerboard, is in very good, original condition including both bridge and pickup covers and original case. Pairing an Alder body with a Maple neck and Indian Rosewood fingerboard, this classic bass carries all its original components (except strings).  The original, black rectangular Fender hard shell case is included, and contains the bridge and pickup covers.  This Fender 1965 Precision is something of a transitional model, as it has an Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia sissoo) fingerboard.
