“Welcome to the guitar collection. On the second floor of our store we have on display over 300 guitars and more than 50 amps that I’ve accumulated over the years. The friends and customers that have visited us seem to really appreciate being able to view this, so we thought we would share it with our online friends and fellow guitar enthusiasts as well. Enjoy!”

  • A5829_logo

    ES-350 Tenor, '55

    Natural, Serial # A5824. As the Jazz Age matured in the 1930’s, the loud rhythmic pulse of the banjo gave way to silky even tones of the archtop guitar. The… READ MORE

  • 040168_logo

    Prototype Bass, Mid 70's

    Cherry Sunburst, I’ve never seen another one like this and probably for a good reason! It is an odd duck, that’s for sure!

  • 83114548_logo

    Map Guitar '84

    Natural, Kind of a silly thing. I think these were mostly meant as a promotional item, but this guitar gets some of the most attention of anything in the collection… READ MORE

  • 137558_logo

    ES-340TD, Early 70's

    Natural, An unusual version of an ES-335 with a 3 piece maple neck.

  • 897720_logo

    ES-150 '69

  • 307291_logo

    ES-355 '65

    Sparkling Burgundy, The face has faded to an interesting gold color! Some nasty Gibson/Schaller tuners installed, but since the damage was already done, I left them alone.

  • A32582_logo

    ES-355 '60

    Cherry, Serial #A32582. A very clean example with just a bit of gold plating wear.

  • 176409_logo

    Sunburst, Serial # 176409.

  • 34224_logo

    ES-345 '60

    Cherry, Serial #A34224. The color has faded nicely on this one. A nice early ’60 with the long guard and clear knobs.

  • a31007_logo

    ES-345 '59

    Sunburst, Serial #A31007. The gold plating is a bit worn and the tuners are starting to shrivel up, but this is a great guitar. I love the late 50’s/early 60’s… READ MORE

  • a32846_logo

    ES-345 '60

    Sunburst, Serial #A32846, An early ’60 with the clear top knobs and the long guard.

  • 871604_logo

    ES-335TD, ’67

    Pelham Blue, Serial # 871604. Gibson’s legendary double cutaway thinline, the ES-335, was introduced in 1958. Its classic elegant design is still a favorite today, and has been often imitated…. READ MORE

  • 170009_logo

    ES-335, '67

    Sparkling Burgundy, Serial # 170009. This guitar is weird not just because of the color, but because it has split parallelogram fingerboard inlays like an ES-345.

    Sunburst, Serial # A15572. The Gibson ES-295 was introduced in 1952 as the full sized hollow body complement to the solid body Les Paul Model also debuting that year.  While… READ MORE
