Gibson Explorer Vintage White, 2008

Gibson Explorer Vintage White, 2008

The Gibson Explorer has been a more or less regular production model since then in a number of variations, mostly finding a home in harder rock bands; it’s seldom seen on Country stages. This Gibson Explorer in Vintage White has a simple construction – Mahogany for the body and neck, and Ebony for the fingerboard. 496R and 498T pickups are installed and controlled by a pickup selector, individual volume and a master tone control.

Furch G23CR Cutaway Cedar Top Guitar, 2018

Furch G23CR Cutaway Cedar Top Guitar, 2018

Furch offers a wide range of body styles and wood options, and seems to focus on allowing the customer to customize, rather than making specific models with minimal substitutions. In effect, it’s almost entirely what others call their Custom Shop. As is identified on the label as a Furch G23CR Cutaway, this breaks down to Grand Auditorium body shape, style 23, with American Red Cedar top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, and a Cutaway. The neck is Mahogany, with Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, and headplate.

Standel DB Original Dobro Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, 1963

Standel DB Original Dobro Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, 1963

This Standel DB Original square neck dates to perhaps 1963. As discussed below, production of the DB Original guitars began in 1959, but the Standel company didn’t get involved till 1962. The Standel decal could not have gone on this guitar before 1962, and this arrangement lasted for at most three years. While it’s possible that this guitar was built before the Standel deal took effect, we’re placing it around 1963. Construction is typical Dopyera – the bodies are laminate, because the resonator cone is the sound source.

‼️Reduced‼️ Tim Reede Custom OM Palo Escrito Steel String Guitar, 2016

‼️Reduced‼️  Tim Reede Custom OM Palo Escrito Steel String Guitar, 2016

Tim Reede’s instruments are demonstrations of his skill and craftsmanship, and also of his understanding of what a guitar needs – an understanding comes from actually playing them. Here we have a Tim Reed Palo OM, built during 2017 at Reede’s shop in Minneapolis using bearclaw spruce, likely Sitka, for the top, Palo Escrito for the sides and back, and a 5-piece neck of mahogany, walnut and maple. The headplate, fingerboard and bridge are Indian Rosewood with bone for the nut and saddle. The top features a very blue Abalone rosette. Tuners are Gotoh 510 models, very smooth and accurate.
