The Gibson L-5S was introduced in 1973, as the solid body version of the world's most celebrated archtop guitar. With its all gold art-deco hardware, technicolor abalone inlay, and flowerpot peghead, the L-5S was the most ornate and costly solid body Gibson had ever made. And unlike the Les Paul, which joined a maple top to a mahogany body, the L-5S was the only Gibson to feature solid tiger...

Early 50's Gibson L-50 in overall good playing condition. This is an unusual piece cause the top looks mahogany and the finish looks legit. I've never seen one like this one but it's a really nice player with good action.

Two repaired top cracks, plenty of really vibey finish checking, some dings and scratches, a bit of finish missing from the guitar's butt end/side - but really...

The very top of the Gretsch line when it was introduced, the Artist Model 150 was comparable in catalog position to the Gibson L-5 and Epiphone Deluxe. With its extravagantly engraved pearl peghead and hand-engraved pickguard, the Artist Model 150 was one of the most ornate archtop guitars produced by any American manufacturer. Offered only until 1938, its Depression era timing and high cost made...

his amazing full body electric archtop started its life as an Electromatic II, the guitars that later evolved into the Country Club in 1954. These were Gretsch’s top of the line Jazz models, meant to compete with the Gibson L-5s and the D’Angelico Excels of the day! In the early/mid 1980s, with the rising cost and rarity of the ‘50s White Falcons, some hoodwinkers started converting other...
Honestly, is there anything prettier than an old blonde Deluxe?
Introduced in 1948, the Zephyr Deluxe Regent was Epiphone's electric cutaway version of their legendary Deluxe model archtop. Epi's top-of-the line 17" instrument, the Zephyr Deluxe Regent was the equivalent in price and prestige to its main competitor, the Gibson L-5CES. Featuring a deeper cutaway than its Gibson rival, the...

This 56 example is ready for almost anything you can throw at it. Jazz, blues, country, rockabilly, you name it. A great guitar. The body is laminated maple for bright tone and good feedback resistance. The 2 piece maple neck...
