Martin 0014F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

Martin 0014F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

Here’s an unusual guitar from the Custom Shop – a Martin 0014F cutaway guitar with ‘Toasted Burst’ top finish, built during 2015 in very gently used condition.  This lovely venetian-cutaway model has a Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany sides, back and neck, and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The 00-14F is a recent and custom-run model, and does not at present appear in the Martin catalog or website.  This example is in overall quite good condition with very little wear.  The thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish is showing signs of naturally sinking, and is very clean with only the lightest scuffing.

La Esperanza Classe 1000 Concert Classical Guitar, 1979

La Esperanza Classe 1000 Concert Classical Guitar, 1979

Here we have a nicely kept La Esperanza Classe 1000 classical guitar built during 1979 in the shop of Masaru Matano or his successors in Kurume, Japan. Matano’s shop built the La Esperanza Classe 1000 and lower priced Classe 600 for sale for the company name “Ongaku Geijutsusha Co” and these models were based on Ramirez instruments. The Classe 1000 features a Red Cedar top and double layer Rosewood sides and back, which is not quite the same as laminated. Here, the two layers are of Brazilian Rosewood and are used to reduce overtones and ‘wolf’ tones when the guitar is played loudly.

Gretsch G6120DSW G-Brand Archtop Electric Orange, 2006

Gretsch G6120DSW G-Brand Archtop Electric Orange, 2006

Based on mid 1950’s models, the Gretsch G6120DSW Chet Atkins model is probably the iconic Gretsch with its G brand in the top and ‘Western’ motif inlays. A fully hollow guitar with tone bars and a soundpost for support, the DSW designation indicates that DynaSonic style pickups are installed, and the Western decorations are used. Here we’re looking at a Gretsch G6120DSW built at the Terada plant in Japan, dated to August 2006. It’s in great, original condition with very little wear. Fret wear varies from light and to negligible and the finish is in great shape.
