Gibson ES-345 1963 (consignment) – SOLD

Gibson ES-345 1963 (consignment) - SOLD

Close to the top of the Gibson semi-acoustic line, it’s easy to see from this example why these guitars were favoured by players who needed tone and playability along with a classic appearance. This guitar is in overall good condition.

This is an interesting older piece in good condition. Its deeper body fills out the tone some and it looks great.

This mid 50’s Les Paul Junior has seen some pretty heavy play wear but is all original plays well and flat out has that great vintage vibe that you can feel from across the room!! Comes with newer hardshell case.

Gibson ES-295 1956 (consignment) SOLD

Gibson ES-295 1956 (consignment) SOLD

This is an incredibly cool guitar. There aren’t a lot of ES-295’s around; they were supplanted by the ES-175, which is a very similar guitar but with humbuckers. As an excellent rockabilly guitar, the ES-295 was famously played by Scotty Moore in Elvis Presley’s band fronm 1952 to 1955. This example, while refinished long ago, is in good playable shape and is ready to rumble!

Epiphone Texan FT-79 1966 (consignment) SOLD

Epiphone Texan FT-79 1966 (consignment) SOLD

This wonderful old piece is still very playable. Epiphone Texans of this period were fully pro-level guitars, and indeed were the most expensive slope-shoulder model in the Gibson line. You can hear them on many Beatles tunes after 1964; one of the most famous examples is Yesterday.The slope shoulder design slightly reduces the amount of bottom end, evening out the tonal response. Overall, this is a great guitar with a great sound, and a place in musical history.

This is one of the best examples of this kind of instrument we’ve seen for a long time. Rarely do we see unaltered mandolins of this age; it plays very well, sounds great, and is in excellent condition.
