Great sounding and playing Loar era "Snakehead" A style mandolin in very good condition. The pickguard and the cover on the tailpiece are missing, and the end pin appears to be a replacement. This instrument has had one owner and he enjoyed playing it! It comes with it's original hardshell case.
The Loar patent single action truss rod allows this mandolin to have a slim fast neck. The Loar adjustable compensated ebony bridge, tuning machines, tailpiece and cover are all original to this instrument. The A2Z mandolins are very rare as they were only made during the Loar period (1921-1924) and are made with fancier wood and trim than the standard A2 model. The serial number is 75646 and the label inside is clean and legible. The original hard shell case is in good condition.
This is a VINTAGE instrument from 1952 being offered in near original condition. The tuners have been replaced using the original grommet screws. There is a visible, significant crack across the shoulders which has been repaired somewhere along the line.
The ES-125 evolved out of the ES-100 in 1941 and was produced until 1943. Upon its reintroduction in 1946, the ES-125 changed in a number of ways including a wider body, a new P-90 pickup, and trapezoid inlays. The ES-125 was updated again in 1950 with an adjustable P-90 pickup and dot inlays.
The revolutionary double-cutaway thinline electric guitar series begun by Gibson with the ES-335 in 1958 expanded to both higher- and lower-end models by 1959. These included the upscale gold-hardware-bearing ES-345 and ES-355, as well as the student level ES-330T, ES-330TD, ES-125TC, and ES-125TCD. (The “D” was used to denote a double pickup model.) The ES-330 shared the same body dimensions as the ES-335, ES-345, and ES-355, but had a very different interior construction. Rather than having a semi-solidbody, the ES-330 was fully hollow, similar to the original 1955 thinlines like the ES-350T and ES-225.
The original catalog text describing the guitar highlights the similarities to the ES-335: “A wonderful instrument with truly magical tone available in single- or double-pickup models. The double cutaway body and thin silhouette make it wonderfully easy to hold and play. The new slim neck provides fast, low action and perfect response. A beautiful guitar in the finest curly maple and rosewood and nickel-plated metal parts.”
This 1959 ES-330T has the usual features seen that year. These include:
Gibson launched the Firebird design in 1963 with four main models: the Firebird I, II, V, and VII. Each was distinguished by different pickup and hardware configurations, though they all shared thru-body construction and a unique "reversed" body shape with a large lower horn. The Firebird III in specific used chrome hardware, a vibrato tailpece, and two mini-humbucker pickups. By mid-1965, Gibson changed the Firebird (as well as its counterpart Thunderbird bass) to a more traditional "non-reversed" body shape.
This instrument is in all original condition. Photos are of the actual instrument.
Introduced in 1959, the Melody Maker was Gibson's flagship entry-level solid body guitar. Initially offered in three iterations-- a standard model with an lone single-coil pickup, a 3/4 sized model, and a Melody Maker 'D' dual pickup model--, early Melody Makers featured a single-cutaway sunburst slab mahogany body redolent of a Les Paul Junior. The body transitioned to double-cut in 1961, and in 1967 two additional models-- a three-pickup Melody Maker III and a 12-string model-- were introduced. The original run of Melody Makers was discontinued in 1971.

In late 1960, Gibson replaced the Les Paul body shape with the SG design. When the original Les Paul was relaunched in the late '60s, the new "Standard" in the catalog was dubbed the Les Paul Deluxe until the actual Standard came back in in 1975 (though there were a few reissues of '50s Standards made in 1968 and 1969). The new Les Paul Deluxe included a four-ply Maple and Mahogany body, a three-piece Maple neck, and mini-humbuckers instead of PAFs.
*This guitar has had the pickups replaced with new Gibson Mini Humbuckers as well as the pots and jack.

Produced for seven years from 1973 to 1980, the Gibson L6-S wasn't necessarily popular during its lifetime, but picked up steam when it was endorsed by players like Carlos Santana and Pat Martino. Its all maple solid body took direction from the hollowbodied Gibson L Series, intended on giving guitarists an instrument that was both versatile and affordable. The six-way pickup selector allowed for selection of both phase and output settings, adding to the versatility of the L6-S.
This is the limited run, upscale model of the Gibson Corvus. It has a solid neck as opposed to the Corvus which has a bolt on neck. It should not to be confused with the 1950's Futura which was the precursor of the Explorer.

Gibson introduced the Gibson SG '61 Reissue electric guitar to pay homage to their legendary 1961 SG Standard. Sporting that classic deep double-cutaway and beveled edge carved into an all-mahogany body, the '61 Reissue looks and feels like its vintage counterpart. Gibson included two highly accurate PAF-style humbuckers in the redesign, but with wax coating and a poly-coated wiring that will kill feedback dead. For those looking for a great slice of vintage Gibson without paying exorbitant prices, check out the Gibson SG '61 Reissue.
