❌ Sold❌ Gibson "The SG" Walnut Solidbody Electric, 1979

Appearing only in 1970, the Gibson “The SG” was built much like an SG Standard, but using Walnut in place of Mahogany. In 1980 it was relaunched as the SG Firebrand. The primary difference between this model and the Firebrand is the way the Gibson logo was applied. Here, it is a gold-coloured decal, and on the Firebrand, it is branded into the headstock.Walnut was regularly used as a tonewood in stringed instruments until the 1930s, and was very commonly found in banjos.

❌ SOLD ❌ Ludwig Ambassador Tenor Banjo Walnut, 1926

The Ludwig Ambassador tenor banjo is an example of a business recognizing opportunity. The Ludwig Drum Company started in 1909 and by the early 1920’s realized that banjos are closely related to drums, and offered a range of models. However, by the early 1930’s as banjos started to wane, Ludwig moved back to its core business – and is still a respected name in drum manufacturing.
