Gibson Memphis ES330 VOS Sunburst, 2013

Gibson Memphis ES330 VOS Sunburst, 2013

The Gibson Memphis ES330 VOS model is now discontinued, along with the Memphis plant, but is a great re-creation of a late 1950’s ES-330. Introduced in 1959, the ES-330 took visual cues from the new and very successful ES-335, but is uses a fully hollow body without a solid center block. A pair of under-wound P-90s provide great tone. Until about 1963, the ES330 and its cousin the Epiphone Casino set the neck joint at the 16th fret but subsequently the joint was shifted to the 19th fret, allowing easier access to higher frets.

GW Barry Concert LH CW Brazilian Rosewood, 2017

GW Barry Concert LH CW Brazilian Rosewood, 2017

This GW Barry Concert LH features a Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top paired with a lovely Brazilian Rosewood set for the sides, back and head plate. This guitar was built during 2017 at GW Barry’s shop in Toronto, Canada. High quality, high end and hand built Left Handed guitars are not very common, so it is a treat to see this fantastic piece from Toronto luthier G W Barry.  Barry has been building for over 35 years, including a five year working apprenticeship with Jean Larrivee.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Les Paul Recording Model Natural, 1972

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Les Paul Recording Model Natural, 1972

Built from 1971 to 1979, the Gibson Les Paul Recording model sported the features most desired by Les Paul himself, but unfortunately this did not translate into sales success. Still, even this low selling model was copied by Japanese builders during the ‘Lawsuit Era’. Constructed during the Norlin years with strong references to the original Les Paul Custom models, the Gibson Les Paul Recording model featured a Mahogany body with carved Mahogany top – unlike the Gold Top and Standard models, which had Maple caps on a Mahogany slab. At this point, Gibson was using what’s come to be called ‘Pancake’ bodies, with at least two narrower layers of Mahogany.

Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

Here we have a handsome, almost all original, Fender Precision Bass Maple neck built at the CBS/Fender Fullerton plant in 1975 – the pot codes date to 1974. First appearing in October 1951, the Fender Precision bass was a brilliant piece of industrial design. This innovation brought modern influences to the bass world – such as the ability to reliably and consistently produce a precise pitch, and to play at any volume without feedback. Quickly adopted, the Precision Bass was updated in 1954 to visually match the new Stratocaster, and has been in production with really only minor modifications since then.   The P-Bass is arguably one of the most functionally successful bass instruments ever built, having appeared on more recordings and stages than any other bass.
