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

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.

1969 Fender Telecaster with Bigsby (consignment) SOLD

1969 Fender Telecaster with Bigsby (consignment) SOLD

The Telecaster is not only the first succesful (wildly!) solidbody electric guitar, but it’s also been in uninterrupted production the longest.

There have been some variations over the years, and this 1969 Fender Telecaster with Bigsby is a prime example. The Bigsby unit itself is the oldest successful vibrato unit made, and as we can see here it’s been available in a branded form to manufacturers. This unit has the ‘F’ logo on the body casting. To go with this, the body does not have the string ferrules on the back; there is a custom pickup plate and a Jazzmaster-style bridge is used. This one even has the original bridge cover!

Fender Telecaster 1952 Reissue With Vibramate and Bigsby (used) SOLD

We received a number of Vibramate kits and Bigsby units, and decided to install the V5-TEV kit on this 1952 Telecaster Reissue. It went on in minutes, just a little longer than changing the strings, and doesn’t alter the guitar at all.
