Gibson Johnny A, signature model, flame-top…
This guitar appears to be a cross between a Solid Body and a hollow-body guitar and looks similar to a symmetrical but sharper pointed Gibson Midtown. Sporting a smaller body than a 335 or 339, we have a luscious looking semi acoustic guitar that plays more like a solid body guitar. The guitar has looks and plays phenomenally well. Kitted out with a factory Bigsby and powerful pickups make for a very versatile and good looking instrument. The Johnny A signature model is only issued in small numbers and a sought after Guitar henceforth.
Issues as a custom shop model it lives in a plush custom shop case with purple lining.

Yamaha SG-600 electric guitar made in Japan with cool looks, excellent player with a lovely sound and a good solid feel. This is one of the junior members of the SG family and suits a mix of rhythm and lead guitar. It is set up with a fair low action, so it plays light and fluid. The guitar has only minor play-wear and is in very good condition for its age and has a lot of mojo and sports a definite vintage vibe.
The guitar has a solid wood body with carved top, set neck, rosewood fretboard with dot mother of pearl position markers, clean chrome hardware and tulip shaped tuning pegs. The sound is through 2 high-output pickups which when put through a proper valve amp, gives of a great sound from a sweet clean to a crunchy growl. Yamaha SG-600 guitars came onto the scene in 1979 along with the relatively unknown SG-800 and were available in tobacco sunburst and black. Weight of guitar approx. 3.8 Kgs, neck width at nut approx. 4.4 cm.

Of all Gibson Marauders, the Tobacco Sunburst version of the Marauder was produced in very small numbers, word on the street is that this finish was rare, so that even less than 100 were made. Generally the Marauder was outshone by the Les Apayl Models, mostly due to the lesser popularity of the bolted versus the set neck The Marauder was launched in 1974 and remained in production until 1979; being replaced by the Gibson Sonex series around 1980. This Gibson type guitar was initially produced at the Kalamazoo plant, but gradually production was transferred to the newer Nashville plant. The Marauder, along with the Gibson Grabber Bass were Gibson’s mid-seventies budget guitar models; still a Gibson, and not cheap, but certainly not their lowest price electric; though there was a more up-market version, the Marauder Custom,
The body and neck are made from poplar wood and hard maple and the instrument is finished in tobacco nitro lacquer. There 3 tone settings on the Marauder’s selector switch via a 3-position toggle switch. The pick ups are Bill Lawrence design with the front pickup is similar to the Super Humbucker with small additional magnets reinforcing and directing the field, while the bridge pickup has a single, iron-cored coil, with a magnet below and iron strips from the lower magnet pole. The fast, easy-action neck is made from Canadian maple. The fingerboard is made from rosewood.
