Godin Multiac ACS Denim Blue Flame

Godin Multiac ACS Denim Blue Flame

The Godin Multiac ACS SA in Denim Blue Flame is a direct descendant of a Chet Atkins idea and is intended as a ‘crossover’ guitar for those coming to nylon strings from the electric world.    With this in mind, the neck is slightly narrower than a Classical or Flamenco guitar, and the fingerboard is crowned.   The chambered body and solid neck of the Godin ACS SA are Mahogany,  with a Richlite fingerboard – a composite material that does a good job of simulating Ebony.  The top of this model is a figured Maple Veneer with a lovely translucent denim blue shade, providing an unusual and quite attractive appearance.

❌SOLD❌  Recording King KayKraft Venetian Tenor Style B Guitar, 1931

Here we’re looking at a Recording King KayKraft Venetian Tenor Style B Guitar, built around 1931 at the KayKraft plant in Chicago, Illinois for Montgomery-Ward.  It is in good working order, and has had a headstock repair. An archtop type instrument, the top is Spruce and back are Mahogany, both heat formed and ladder braced into the arched form. The sides and neck are Mahogany, with the fingerboard and bridge made of dark-stained Maple. The head plate is a ‘pearloid’ plastic with ‘Recording King’ stencilled on. The open gear tuning machines are not original but the rest of the hardware appears to be.

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.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Starburst 100th Anniversary Cutaway Maple, 1994

❌SOLD❌ 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.
