1934 Martin 0-174293 viewsMy first guitar. Dad bought it from a co-worker for $10. The gentlemen bought it for $35 including a year's lessons during the Great Depression. We had the guitar appraised and told him that it was worth a lot more, but he wanted me to enjoy it and wouldn't accept more. Unbelievable tone and projection from this guitar!
1952 Fender Telecaster Blackguard2636 viewsEverything a blackguard Tele should be - playability, snap, and twang! Complete with thermometer case.
1952 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2892 viewsOriginal flatwounds were still on this guitar when I got it. My guess is that it was in someone's attic for many years. The initial "B" is affixed to the top. I didn't want to attempt to remove it and damage the finish. Plus, it is the first initial of my wife's name, so it works!
1953 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2161 viewsWho said you can't play these trapeze tailpiece models? Obviously, no one told the original owner, because this baby has some mileage on it!
1954 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2285 viewsAged to a golden brown. When blacklighting it I detected that the original owner must have had his initials on the upper bout of the guitar at one time (those stick on letters).
1955 Fender Stratocaster260 viewsAll original, excellent plus condition Strat from the best year for V neck shape, ash body, pickups, etc. Has all Bakelite plastics. Amazing guitar to play, and sounds out of this world! A really treasured part of my collection. Ash tray, tremolo bar safely stored in vintage tweed case.
1955 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2087 viewsPurchased from Dave Rogers. Nice big neck. Plays and sounds great! Stoptails are awesome!
1956 Gibson ES-140 T1871 viewsA funky little guitar that is fun to play, if you can re-train your hands for the small neck! This one is in mint condition.
1956 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2408 viewsThe greening isn't as apparent when seeing the guitar in person, but it is fairly prominent when photographing the guitar!
1957 Gibson ES-225 TN1624 viewsI'm partial to blondes! ES-225s are often overlooked guitars, and I don't know why - they sound absolutely huge!
1957 Gibson Les Paul Custom2988 viewsI love the sound of the Alnico neck pickup! This guitar is very playable, even with the low frets.
1957 Gibson Les Paul Special TV Single Cutaway2044 viewsClose to mint condition. Sounds and plays great.
1957 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2506 viewsThis guitar rocks! I have a photo of the original owner playing it in his band in the late 50's.
1957 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop All Mahogany Body369 viewsA rare bird - not many all mahogany Les Pauls made in this timeframe. Plays and sounds great! Heavy as a boat anchor though at 10 lbs.!
1958 Fender Telecaster2306 viewsAnother Tele tone monster, this time with the classic white pickguard! Another time machine that's a pickin' and a grinnin'!
1958 Gibson ES-225 TDN1712 viewsAnother wonderful ES-225, this one with two pickups. These are pretty rare in blonde!
1958 Gibson ES-335 TD1926 viewsNIce big neck on this one. Probably my favorite "go to" ES-335.
1958 Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster1757 viewsYou can never have enough PAFs in one guitar! Also purchased from Dave Rogers.
