Gibson Les Paul Traditional with P-90s and Bigsby (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

Here’s a Gibson Les Paul Traditional with P-90s and Bigsby – and its’ a very interesting factory Bigsby installation. The Gibson Les Paul Traditional is based on late 1950’s Les Paul models. Using the traditional Les Paul construction, the top is carved maple, the back is a 2-piece mahogany slab with only the original wiring routing; the neck is also mahogany, using the late 1950’s profile, with bound rosewood fingerboard and the classic trapezoidal markers. It has Kluson Deluxe tuners with plastic keystone buttons and a wireless ABR bridge made by TonePros.

The Towner Down Tension Bar

Christian Towner has had a great idea for putting a single-roller Bigsby on any guitar that has a stop tailpiece. This idea, the Towner Down Tension Bar, has a number of advantages over any other system and permanent modifications to the guitar are limited to holes on the tailblock for mounting the Bigsby hinge. The kits are reasonably priced and very simple to install.

1978 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Gold Top with Bigsby (consignment)

1978 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Gold Top with Bigsby (consignment)

Here’s a very cool 1978 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Gold Top with Bigsby installed. Gibson, then owned by Norlin, introduced the Les Paul Deluxe model in 1968. It’s possible that part of the reason for the model was excess stock of Epiphone ‘New Yorker’ mini-humbuckers; it was realized that a modified P-90 cover could hold the mini-humbucker and no major development was needed as there were already Les Paul models, and jigs for making them, using P-90s. The Deluxe was discontinued in 1985.
