Gibson Custom Shop Super 200 Custom Cutaway Prototype at Pittsburgh Guitars

2000 Gibson Super 200 Cutaway Custom Prototype
Here is your opportunity to own a very cool one-of-a-kind guitar. The label reads 2000 NAMM SAMPLE #1. This blonde beauty is a prototype from the Gibson Custom Shop for the Super 200 Cutaway Custom. Built in the Montana Gibson Custom Shop in 1999 and Introduced at the 2000 NAMM Show, it was designed as a flattop jazzbox, based on the classic J-200 model, with a cutaway and Super 400-Style appointments. In Antique Natural finish, it has a Super Jumbo body, crafted with a hand-selected solid Sitka spruce top and highly figured maple back and sides. The ebony fretboard is adorned with unique mother-of-pearl split block inlays, with mother-of-pearl inlays on the bridge as well as the pickguard. A Venetian cutaway allows full access of the fingerboard. The tuners are gold Grover Imperials and are slightly tarnished. It has a sound that is "...a perfect blend of the rich bass and big volume of the J-200, with the warm mids of the archtops." This guitar sounds spectacular! The guitar is in excellent overall condition, with some light scratches and dings, light belt-buckle scratches on the back, and a little finish checking on the front under the bridge, and a probable bridge reset. Our guitar tech set it up with light gauge Martin strings. The pickguard was lifting and he re-glued it. Price includes original hard case, and loads of the original paperwork, including a Certificate of Authenticity and an Acoustic Guitar magazine article announcing the model, with this exact guitar's picture included. Our customer saw it in the magazine and acquired that exact guitar for his father!

Used 2002 Takamine EF341SC at Pittsburgh Guitars

2002 Takamine EF341SC
A model used by both Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, this dreadnought acoustic/electric is in excellent condition. It was made in Japan, and is stage ready with factory CT-4BII preamp, with built-in tuner. It is ink stamped "Second AAA" inside the soundhole near the label, indicating some type of cosmetic blemish -- possibly the crescent-shaped shadows on the front of the headstock under the tuning pegs. It is quite clean overall, with only the lightest of surface scratches. Price includes original hard case. (picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12 - 13 - 14)

Banjos, Ukes, and Mandolins, etc.

c. 1928 Paramount Style B Tenor banjo at Pittsburgh Guitars 1928 Paramount Style B Tenor Banjo
Famous the world over in its time, and highly sought after by dance band players in the 1920s, Paramount banjos were marketed as "The Banjo with Piano Volume and Harp Quality." The position markers are a fancy pearl design, and the headstock is decorated with stylish pearl inlays. This banjo is almost completely original, with calfskin head, and in excellent overall condition given its age. It has assorted dings and scratches, one replacement tuner, and the playwear you'd expect from an 86-year old instrument. There is a crack in the heel that was repaired when we got it. Price includes good original hard case. (picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7)

It has a couple small dings, and fine finish checking througout, on the front, back, and back of the headstock and neck.
