❌SOLD❌ National El Trovador Resophonic Guitar with Hot Plate, Mahogany, 2015

❌SOLD❌  National El Trovador Resophonic Guitar with Hot Plate, Mahogany, 2015

The National El Trovador goes back to the 1930’s wood bodied, single cone resophonic guitars by National, and this one comes with a HotPlate installed! The El Trovador uses a Mahogany laminate for the body and solid Mahogany for the neck, with a bound Ebony fingerboard. The peg head is slotted, which increases the pressure of the strings on the nut while reducing the required tip-back angle of the head.

❌SOLD❌ PRS DGT David Grissom Trem Honeyburst, 2013

❌SOLD❌ PRS DGT David Grissom Trem Honeyburst, 2013

The PRS DGT David Grissom Trem model starts with the basic McCarty design, but alters the neck shape, pickups, and control layout, adds higher frets, and carries a vintage style trem bridge. It uses the proven formula of a carved Maple cap on a mahogany body, mahogany neck, and rosewood fingerboard. This model was introduced in 2007. Here we’re looking at a PRS DGT model built during 2013 at the PRS shop in Stevensville, Maryland, with a lovely honey burst finish. This guitar is in overall good condition with a few small dings, minor fretwear and minor play wear.

‼️Reduced‼️ Larson Brothers Maurer 551 Steel String Guitar, late 1920s

‼️Reduced‼️  Larson Brothers Maurer 551 Steel String Guitar, late 1920s

This Larson Brothers Maurer 551 dates to the late 1920s and uses an Auditorium sized body, 15 inches wide. As was often the case in the period, there is no serial number and records are scarce, so it is difficult to date exactly. The top is Spruce, the back and sides are Brazilian Rosewood, with a number of old repairs to both. The neck is mahogany, with Ebony used for the fingerboard and bridge. The scale length is a modern 25.6 inches, and the nut width a fairly wide 1.9 inches. The finish base is original but there are a number of touchups and some overspray.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Country Club G6196TCG Cadillac Green, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Country Club G6196TCG Cadillac Green, 2005

The Gretsch Country Club, model G619x, appeared in 1954 as a rebrand of the ‘Electro II’, itself built from 1951 to 1953. There were three ‘619x’ versions and the ‘x’ indicated the colour. 6192 was sunburst, 6193 natural or Blonde and 6196 the Cadillac Green finish seen here. Intended to sit at the top of the Gretsch line, this model aimed to convert ‘classic’ archtop players so the top was carved Spruce, rather than laminated Maple, often used for feedback rejection.

❌SOLD❌ Jean Larrivee Classical Guitar, 1974

❌SOLD❌ Jean Larrivee Classical Guitar, 1974

Here we have a Jean Larrivee classical guitar with Cedar top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, built during 1975 at the Toronto shop. At this time, Larrivee and others were working with the late Edgar Monch, who was still in Toronto and the influences are visible on this Hauser style guitar. Jean Larrivee has been one of the more influential Canadian guitar builders. Building his first instruments in his home in Toronto during the late 1960’s, Larrivee worked with and learned from Monch. As his interest, skill and collection of tools and wood increased, he moved to ever-larger quarters and attracted his own trainees.
