Gretsch Monkees, '67

Red, Serial # 17771.

 

Gibson ES-150 '69

Natural, These look a lot like an ES-335, but they are completely hollow and much thicker. These never really did catch on in the vintage market, but I've always been a fan of them, especially in Natural!

 

Gibson ES-340TD, Early 70's

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

 

Gibson 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 from the non-guitar type folks.

 

Gibson 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!

 

Gibson ES-345 '60

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

 

Gibson 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 ES series guitars when they have the stop tailpiece!

 

Gibson 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.

 

Gibson ES-345, '64

Sunburst, Serial # 176409.

 

Gibson ES-355 '60

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

 

Gibson 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.

 

National Glenwood 98, '64

White.

The National String Instrument Corporation began in 1926 and was known for making resonator guitars. National united with the Dobro Company in 1932, and eventually became Valco in 1943. Valco manufactured guitars and amps under its own National and Supro brand names as well as for other companies (Gretsch, Silvertone, Oahu, and Airline).

 

In 1961 Valco came out with an innovative new style of electric guitar made from molded fiberglass bodies called Res-O-Glas (polyester resin and glass threads combined). The most striking of these fiberglass guitars were the National Map-shaped models which included the Glenwood, Val-Pro and Newport models. The unusual cutaways on these guitars made them resemble a map of the continental United Sates.

 

The National Map-shaped guitar pictured is a 1964 Glenwood 98. It has two standard single-coil pickups along with a bridge pickup. Controlling the pickups are three tones, three volumes, and a selector switch. A master volume is located near the jack. The hardware consists of chrome Grover Rotomatic tuners and a Bigsby vibrato. The body is white, while the finish on the back of the neck is black.
