Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Built at the Gibson Nashville plant, the new Gibson Firebird closely – but not entirely – follows the original construction concepts of the first Firebirds. Most importantly, this is a neck-through design, with the neck and the body built up of a total of five pieces of Mahogany over their length, and four Walnut strips bracketing the center sections. This multi-piece construction is used to provide extra stability over the long section.

❌SOLD❌ C F Martin D28 Dreadnought Acoustic Brazilian Rosewood, 1969

ere we have a C F Martin D28, built in Nazareth, Pennsylvania in 1969. 1969 was officially the last year that Martin used Brazilian Rosewood for their Rosewood models, and in 1970 Indian Rosewood was in use. A few guitars were built with the dwindling stocks of Brazilian, eventually coming down to Brazilian being used for the center panel on the three-piece D-35 back. Brazilian Rosewood is used for the sides, back, and head plate.

❌SOLD❌  Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Special SSS Vintage Burst, 2003

Introduced in 1995, the Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Special is based closely on the Silhouette, but adds the very useful Silent Circuit, rendering standard single coils noiseless. The Silhouette Special features an Alder body with a gloss Vintage Sunburst finish that also appears on the headstock front. The neck has a 10 inch radius and Gun Oil finish on its length; the headstock itself has a gloss finish, matching sunburst on the front and clear on the sides and back of the head.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES137 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 2004

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES137 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 2004

Built from 2002 to 2013 in Memphis as a limited production instrument, the Gibson ES137 is intended to bring together the sounds of an archtop and a Les Paul Classic. Two versions were produced – the Classic and Custom, with the key difference being that the Custom had an ebony fingerboard and a Varitone circuit. Gibson has long built archtop electric guitars, and the ES-137 takes cues from many older designs.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom Sunburst, 1979

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Custom Sunburst, 1979

Here we’re looking at a Gibson Les Paul Custom Sunburst, dating to March 27 1979 and still built at the historic Kalamazoo plant. It has all the characteristics of the Norlin ownership era, from 1970 to 1983. These include a Maple neck rather than Mahogany, a decreased pitch for the headstock, and a volute behind the truss rod adjuster cavity. These changes were intended to reduce the number of broken headstocks.

❌SOLD!❌ Gibson Herb Ellis Plus ES-165 Sunburst, 2004

❌SOLD!❌  Gibson Herb Ellis Plus ES-165 Sunburst, 2004

Signature models are sometimes unusual, as is the case with the Gibson Herb Ellis Plus – the two pickup version of the Herb Ellis ES-165, built from 1991 to 2013. The late Herb Ellis was one of the more prominent American Jazz guitarists, and his 1943 spot in Glen Gray’s Casa Loma Orchestra (that name is meaningful to those in Toronto, but it seems the band is not related to the Gothic Casa Loma mansion) brought him to the attention of the jazz world.
