Taylor 317 Grand Pacific Slope Shoulder Dreadnought

Taylor 317 Grand Pacific Slope Shoulder Dreadnought

The new Taylor 317 uses one of the newest body shapes from Taylor guitars, the Grand Pacific. It is a round shoulder dreadnought design, paired with Taylor’s new V class bracing system. This marks a new sound for Taylor guitars inspired by classic acoustic guitar sounds and coupled with the sonic improvements of their V class bracing. The tone is warm with powerful clear bass and round full notes that smoothly blend together to create a unified harmonic voice. These guitars can work exceptionally well as accompaniment to a voice

Dobro Model 66S Squareneck OMI Sandblast Sunburst, 1975

Dobro Model 66S Squareneck OMI Sandblast Sunburst, 1975

Here we’re looking at an unusual guitar, the Dobro Model 66s, a wood bodied, single cone resophonic guitar with round sound holes and square neck. Its unique feature is the finish. The guitar was first given a standard Sunburst, then many extra coats of a tinted lacquer, and then that was sandblasted into a ‘French Scroll’ design. This Dobro Model 66s example dates to 1975 and was built at Huntington Beach, California.

Gibson R8 Les Paul Tom Murphy Aged Sunburst, 2002

Gibson R8 Les Paul Tom Murphy Aged Sunburst, 2002

The Gibson R8 reproduces the famed 1958 Les Paul Standard model, the first in the line to include both a sunburst finish and the then-new PAF humbucker pickups. Launched in 1952, the Gibson Les Paul model put a carved Maple cap on a Mahogany slab, and paired that with a Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard and a gold-top finish. The Les Paul custom soon followed, but without the Maple cap – the body was all Mahogany, including the carved top – and with an Ebony fingerboard and Black finish. For 1958, the Les Paul Standard appeared, using the same Maple and Mahogany construction but with a Sunburst finish.

Gibson Melody Maker Single Cutaway Sunburst, 1960

Gibson Melody Maker Single Cutaway Sunburst, 1960

Introduced in 1959 as a student model just below the Les Paul Junior, the Gibson Melody Maker wound up in the hands of a number of professional rock guitarists. The Melody Maker was built from 1959 to 1971, in single and double pickup (the Melody Maker D) versions, in full scale and short scale. The original single cutaway model seen here was built until late 1960, then replaced with a double cutaway version. In 1966, the body shape changed to the pointed-horn SG style. In 1971, the line was dropped in favour of the SG-100 and SG-200 models, which lasted one year.
