Eastman E10SS/V Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Antique Varnish

Eastman E10SS/V Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Antique Varnish

Showing strong influences from the classic American Slope Shouldered dreadnought line, the Eastman E10SS/V uses all solid woods and a very nice Antique Varnish finish. The earliest dreadnought guitars were built by Martin for the Oliver Ditson company during 1916, and used the round or slope shoulder format seen here; When Martin finally put the dreadnought into production in 1931, the upper bouts or shoulders were squared.

Gibson Starburst 100th Anniversary Cutaway Maple, 1994

Gibson Starburst 100th Anniversary Cutaway Maple, 1994

Built from 1992 to 1994, the Gibson Starburst Standard uses a cutaway mini-Jumbo body built of Maple, and as its name suggests features arrays of star shaped inlays. This model was popular, and Jorma Kaukonen apparently had several that he used regularly, including the blue-finished model in the Homespun Tapes clip linked here. The Gibson Starburst was a model produced for a short time in limited numbers in Bozeman, Montana and was designed chiefly by Ren Ferguson. Intended to mark the 100th anniversary of Orville Gibson’s first guitar sales, the Starburst aims towards players who need to amplify their guitars. As such, its wood choices are intended to reduce resonance and volume and thus reduce feedback.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Trans Red Maple Neck, 1979

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Trans Red Maple Neck, 1979

Here’s a Fender Stratocaster Trans Red with Maple Neck, built during the CBS in Fullerton, California, in good clean condition and a fairly rare colour. If you count the Broadcaster/Telecaster and Esquire as one basic design and the revolutionary 1952 Precision Bass as another, the Stratocaster was Leo Fender’s third complete Spanish style guitar design, though he also built a number of Hawaiian or Steel guitar models. Immediately successful, the Strat has stayed in production since its 1954 introduction.

Eastman DM1 Gypsy Jazz Style Guitar Classic Finish

Eastman DM1 Gypsy Jazz Style Guitar Classic Finish

The Eastman DM1 Gypsy Jazz Style model demonstrates that acoustic guitars do not only follow the pattern of American designs, particularly Martin and Gibson. Here we’re looking at a brand new Eastman DM1 Gypsy Jazz style guitar, in the ‘Petite Bouche’ or small soundhole style. This is a long scale instrument at 26.38 inches or 670mm, almost an inch longer than a typical Martin, and is a fairly large guitar. Construction features a solid Sitka Spruce top with layered Indian for the back and sides.
