‼Reduced‼ Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Signature Artist Proof #2 White, 2017

‼Reduced‼  Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Signature Artist Proof #2 White, 2017

he Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Artist Proof #2 is the second of three production proof models built, before the design went to the regular line. All three of these guitars were personally approved by Alex Lifeson.  Alex Lifeson is one of the most recognised rock guitarists, having spent his career with his band Rush. I am reminded of my high school days, seeing Rush perform in the school cafeteria on a stage made of folded tables; this was a long time ago and shows how dedicated Rush has been to working hard.

SOLD!!! Gibson Les Paul Standard 59 Reissue Cherry Burst, 1992

SOLD!!! Gibson Les Paul Standard 59 Reissue Cherry Burst, 1992

One of the iconic American guitars, the 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard was ahead of its time – it was not popular when it was originally produced but is very highly prized now. The classic single cutaway, arched flame maple top is perfectly suited to the shaded sunburst finish. In 1992, before establishing its Custom Shop, Gibson produced a series of Les Paul Standard reissues, re-creations of the 1959 production. These guitars predate the ‘R’ series reissues. This very nice ’59 reissue bears a mix of 1959 and 1960 specs – a 1960 style cherry sunburst, knobs and neck profile that’s a bit thinner than a 50’s model, and 50’s style dished-carve top.

SOLD! Gibson Les Paul Artisan Guitar, 1977

SOLD!  Gibson Les Paul Artisan Guitar, 1977

The Gibson Les Paul Artisan was built during the middle of the 1967-1986 Norlin period. The body uses the Les Paul Custom theme of bound, carved three-piece maple cap, on a bound mahogany back, but also uses a three-piece maple neck (five if you count the ‘wings’ for the headstock width). The ebony fingerboard and headplate are both bound, and as mentioned both the headstock and fingerboard feature a hearts-and-flowers mother of pearl inlay and script logo set that clearly draw from classic Gibson banjos. The Artisan is one of the very few Gibson guitar models to use this type of inlay pattern.

Gibson Les Paul Studio Gloss Vintage Burst, 2013

Gibson Les Paul Studio Gloss Vintage Burst, 2013

This Gibson Les Paul Studio is in great, original condition, with very little wear. It has all the elements of a Les Paul – the maple capped mahogany body (with weight relief) and mahogany neck. The unbound fingerboards are now Granadillo, in response to restrictions on Indian Rosewood; Granadillo is a South American Rosewood that is very commonly used for instruments on the southern continent. The Gibson Les Paul Studio is one of the better deals in quality electric guitars. Built on the same plan and same machines as other Les Paul Models, the Studio lacks binding and often has less elaborate, and less expensive, finishes. This one, dating to August 15 2013 at Nashville, sports a gloss vintage sunburst.
