Gregory Byers Classical Guitar Brazilian, 2011

A Gregory Byers Classical guitar is rare to see on the used market. He generally builds as many as twelve guitars per year, to order. His instruments are usually built one at a time, allowing Byers to give maximum attention to each specific guitar. Byers builds single top guitars (as opposed to double top), though he does use other techniques such as the ‘Elevated Fingerboard’ which really involves the top dropping down towards the heel.

Fender Esquire Solidbody Guitar Blonde, 1967

The Fender Esquire was the single pickup version of Leo Fender’s groundbreaking guitar, and appeared in 1950 with the short-lived Broadcaster, soon renamed Telecaster after a copyright notice from Gretsch, who used that name on a drum line.

Sale! Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. White, 2016

This Gretsch G6112TCB-WF Limited Edition Falcon Jr. in Vintage White, is a great little guitar and is a new model. Blending influences from three sources – the classic Gretsch White Falcon, the Jet body design, and the new Gretsch Players models. Aside from being very flashy, this is a great playing and sounding guitar.
Every once in a while, something built as a promotional item for an industry trade show really takes off, gets more intention than expected and is put into production. This was the case with the 1954 Gretsch White Falcon, intended to show off the elegance and quality of the Gretsch electric archtop line at the 1954 NAMM trade show in California.
