❌SOLD❌ Bacon Day Silver Bell No.1 Tenor Banjo, 1932

This lovely Bacon Day Silver Bell No. 1 tenor banjo dates to February of 1932 at Groton, Connecticut and has had its wooden dowel stick replaced with coordinator rods for better control of the action. The Fred Bacon Banjo company began around 1906 in Forrest Dale Vermont and in addition to his own workshop contracted work to Fairbanks-Vega and Wm. Lange, among others. In 1920 they moved to Groton, Connecticut and in 1922 David L. Day joined Bacon after leaving Vega.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Super 400 Archtop Electric Natural, 1969

❌SOLD❌    Gibson Super 400 Archtop Electric Natural, 1969

The Gibson Super 400 strode above most others when giant archtops roamed the earth, and is still one of the largest production guitars made. Making its introduction in 1934 as the ‘Super L-5 Deluxe’, the non-cutaway model was quickly joined by a cutaway model, initially named the Super 400 P for ‘Premiere’. The ‘400’ designation was originally a reference to the price.

❌SOLD❌  Gretsch White Falcon Bass G6136LS, 2006

Here’s something not quite vintage, but certainly unusual – a 2006 Gretsch White Falcon Bass G6136LSB (Long Scale Bass). The Gretsch White Falcon was introduced in 1954 as a top of the line showpiece for the NAMM show, but a bass model wasn’t put into production at the time. A few years ago, Gretch decided to add a bass version to the line.
