Martin R-17 Archtop Guitar Natural Mahogany, 1937

Martin R-17 Archtop Guitar Natural Mahogany, 1937

Listed from 1935 to 1941, the Martin R-17 was one of a few arched top, flat back models in the Martin catalog, featuring a Mahogany top, back and sides. Its sibling, the R-18, had a solid, shaped Spruce top with Mahogany elsewhere; Brazilian Rosewood was used for the head plate, bridge, and fingerboard. Early examples of both models used 12 fret necks but soon gained the more popular 14 fret configuration.

Gibson J-160E Electric Flat-Top Sunburst, 1956

Gibson J-160E Electric Flat-Top Sunburst, 1956

Introduced in 1954 and intended as a companion to the then-new Les Paul solidbody, the Gibson J-160E was one of the first mass production electrified steel string guitars. This model was discontinued in 1979, and is occasionally re-issued. One of the greatest contributors to the success of this model was a 1962 model’s appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, in the hands of one John Lennon. That was The Beatles first US performance, and made all their gear quite popular.

This Gibson Honeyburst Les Paul Standard was built during 2005 and is in very good, clean original condition with only light wear. At the time that this example was built, pickguards were not installed on models with figured tops, and the two mounting holes were not drilled. The original pickguard is not included and seems to be long gone.
