1985 Robin Medley Custom - Revisited

Richard Moffett

I was asked recently to photograph my 1985 Robin Medley Custom so I thought I’d share some of the pics.

1993 & 2007 Gibson Doves

Richard Moffett

I don’t know how it happens, but when it rains, it pours. I love Gibson acoustics. I especially love Hummingbirds, Doves, J200 etc. They always remind me of the cowboy dreamworlds I lived in as a boy.

Note the subtle differences between the model years. 1997 was, as I understand, the second year of production in Boseman, Montana. It’s top has aged very nicely. The gold & pearl Kluson tuners differ from the Grovers on the 2007. 

The headstock inlays are much nicer on the 2007. They are much more defined with much less filler.

The flame maple is more pronounced on the 2007 as well. I kept them both out for an entire weekend and, with the help of my wife, did repeated blind sound tests. I chose the older one, even though it’s features are not as pronounced. It’s pickup is not active and its condition is a few point lower. What bugs me most about the 1993 is that someone, years ago, placed the strap button on the downside of the neck at the 14th fret! Oh well… The 2007  is for sale here ray@rayeicher.com

1987 & 88 Strat Plus in rare Bahama Green

Richard Moffett

Two are better than one… The ’88 on the left with maple neck has faded to a nice flat green patina. The ’87 on the right belongs to friend/student Gerry Maizlish and has an almost Aqua hue to it and rosewood fingerboard. Both great players guitars!

2007 Gibson Dove

Richard Moffett

I just picked up one of my dream guitars. These Gibson acoustics really do something for me. I already have a beat up J-50 and an early 2000 Hummingbird. Now, the Dove!

5 piece neck, beautiful curly maple back and really a deep, loud acoustic. Pre-installed LR Baggs Element pickup too. Montana made.

Les Paul Gold Top / Black and Gold

From the Les Paul Museum a shot of me and and a Black on Gold Les Paul from the mid 1950’s. Pictured below, Seth Connors late model Black on Gold

“KT Guitars” (Koontz and Thurston)

Richard Moffett

Here are two incredibley rare, incredibly beautiful, incredibley perfect 1980’s KT Les Paul replicas. These handcrafted masterpieces were built in Maryland by a team of Pre-PRS boutique luthiers Mike Koontz and John Thurston sometime in the early 1980’s.
