1934_Martin_0-17.JPG
1934 Martin 0-174054 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_Blackguard.JPG
1952 Fender Telecaster Blackguard2441 viewsEverything a blackguard Tele should be - playability, snap, and twang! Complete with thermometer case.

1952 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2712 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 Goldtop1999 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_Goldtop.JPG
1954 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2130 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_Stratocaster.jpg
1955 Fender Stratocaster60 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 safety stored in vintage tweed case.

1956_Gibson_ES-140_T.JPG
1956 Gibson ES-140 T1720 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_Goldtop.JPG
1956 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2241 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_TN.JPG
1957 Gibson ES-225 TN1450 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_Custom.JPG

1957_Gibson_Les_Paul_Standard_Goldtop_All_Mahogany.jpg
1957 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop All Mahogany Body153 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_Telecaster_Blonde.JPG
1958 Fender Telecaster2148 viewsAnother Tele tone monster, this time with the classic white pickguard! Another time machine that's a pickin' and a grinnin'!
