Gibson Melody Maker 12-String Electric Guitar

Gibson Melody Maker 12-String Electric Guitar

This Gibson Melody Maker 12-string from 1967 caught my fancy. Seller doesn’t have much to say about her other than that she is a rare color and model to find for sale. Oh, and she comes with a non-original gigbag. But she has a certain look in her eye, one that says she knows how to rock your world. She also comes with an appraisal by one Mr. George Gruhn of Gruhn Guitars, one of…

Gibson CF 100CE Acoustic Electric Guitar

Gibson CF 100CE Acoustic Electric Guitar

Check out this spunky monkey from 1957, a badass Gibson CF 100 CE. Put her glorious sunburst finish aside for a moment and just drink her in. I love her sharp cutaway. Her binding looks mellow and fine and her pick guard just makes my ticker go quicker. Seller says she’s mostly original except for an LR Baggs Anthem pickup and some new tuner buttons. Seller also notes she’s got some buckle rash, dings, dents,and…

Gibson J-50 Deluxe Acoustic Guitar

This beauty of a 1975 Gibson J-50 seems to have led a well-played life. She brings a sitka top with mahogany sides and back with a fretboard of rosewood with pearl dot inlays. For a little extra class, she’s dolled up with 3-stripe top purling and a 3/7/3 stripe rosette, plus tortoiseshell binding and pick guard. She is Deluxe, after all.

Gibson Epiphone Electar Coronet Amplifier

Gibson Epiphone Electar Coronet Amplifier

Well, here’s an unusual item—an all-original Gibson Epiphone Electar Coronet Amplifier from 1939 with a serial number of 1981. The seller, from Keane, New Hampshire, says he’s been repairing electronics for 60 years but he has left this baby alone and untouched. Says he hasn’t even plugged it in. As he says, it’s in “rough” shape, just awaiting someone who loves to do restorations to get in there and start restoring. I gotta admit, the Epiphone logo…

1970 Gibson ES-340TDW Walnut Electric Guitar

1970 Gibson ES-340TDW Walnut Electric Guitar

Well, well, well. What we have we here? Just a sweet little 45 year old dual cutaway walnut Gibson ES-340TDW weighing a svelte 8.5 pounds. For those who favor these classy ladies, the walnut is a pretty twist and, though I have not heard her myself, likely adds a little some something tonally. She looks like she’s been used but was generally well cared for, except for a chunk missing out of her headstock. Probably…

Gibson J-45 Pelham Blue Limited Edition Guitar

Here’s a fine play on the Gibson J-45 slope shoulder dread, all gussied up in Pelham Blue by the Gibson Custom Shop in a limited run of 75 guitars. The J-45 has earned a reputation as a workhorse with classic lines and tone. The Pelham Blue finish is really cool, and the seller claims it will age into a fine blue/green that you can supposedly see starting on the wings of the headstock. The photo,…
