Gibson ES-175 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1991

The Gibson ES-175 archtop electric was in production from 1949 until 2017, because it does exactly what many jazz and rock guitarists needed it to do. Comfortable and reliable, the ES-175 delivers a rich tone and its laminate construction makes it feedback resistant, compared to carved solid top models. To that point, it did appear on large, higher volume rock stages, notably in the hands of Steve Howe of Yes. It was also a common choice for early rock and rockabilly artists.

‼️Reduced‼️ C F Martin 0-18K Steel String Guitar Koa, 1930

Built from 1918 to 1935, the C F Martin 0-18K is a small body Koa wood guitar intended for Hawaiian music, which was very popular at the time. Another very similar version, the 0-18KH (for Hawaiian) was built between 1927 and 1928. Based on the proven ‘parlor’ size 0 body, the 0-18K used Koa for the top, sides and back, Mahogany for the neck with an unbound Ebony fingerboard and Ebony bridge. At the time this example was built – likely around November 1930, given the serial number – straight Bar frets were still used.

The Taylor 510E is now discontinued, so this is one of the last ‘as new’ examples you’re likely to find. It is built on the classic Spruce top, Mahogany back and side formula that works so well for fingerstyle and flatpicking. Here, it’s paired with a slotted headstock, which increases downbearing at the nut, and hence open string sustain and separation, without increasing head pitch.

‼️Reduced‼️ Eastman E10 OOSS Steel String Acoustic Sunburst, 2015

The Eastman E10 OOSS is a rebuild of a classic – the OO body shape with an Adirondack Spruce top and Mahogany back, sides and neck with Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. This design comes from the 1898 Martin OO18, which was built until 1995, and again since 2006 with a few variations. The OO body is a bit larger and louder than the ‘Parlor Guitar’ size, and closer to the volume of a classical guitar body. These are known as being tonally very well balanced, with good clarity and separation between notes. They make excellent fingerstyle guitars.
