Gibson L-4C Archtop, 1952 (consignment) Sold

Gibson L-4C Archtop, 1952 (consignment) Sold

Here is a very nice Gibson L-4C from 1952. The L-4C was a cutaway version of the L4, and while this guitar was originally fully acoustic the pickup has been added to the pickguard so the body isn’t modified. The L-4 and L-4C feature a fully hollow body with a carved spruce top coupled with maple laminate back and sides. The L-4 was produced from 1912 to 1956 and the L-4C was produced from 1949 to 1971.

Gibson Les Paul Junior Lite, 1999 (consignment) SOLD

Gibson Les Paul Junior Lite, 1999 (consignment) SOLD

Now THIS is a rock guitar! Here’s a Gibson Les Paul Junior Lite from 1999, looking remarkably like a Les Paul Special. The Les Paul Special was introduced in 1955 as a sincle-cutaway guitar to provide a lower cost model in the Les Paul line, and it immediately took a place in the rock arsenal. In 1958, it received a major makeover with the double-cut (DC) body design, which provides unrestricted access to all the frets. However, the DC model was discontinued during 1960, in favour of the new body design that became known as the SG.

Over the years, the Double-Cut body shape has been reissued. From 1999 to 2002, Gibson produced the guitar shown here, is a Special with P-100 hum-cancelling soapbar style pickups and mini trapezoidal markers, and called it the Junior Lite.

National Reso-Lectric Junior, 2010   SOLD

Here’s a used National Reso-Lectric Junior! The Resolectric was discontinued a couple of years ago to make way for the ResoTone, and this example is in great shape. If you need to have that National sound, but seriously amplified, this is the way to get there!

Gibson Byrdland 1975 (consignment) Sold

Gibson Byrdland 1975 (consignment) Sold

The Gibson Byrdland was originally a custom built version of the L-5 and based on suggestions made by Billy Byrd and Hank Garland, two prominent Nashville session players in the mid to late 1950’s (Hank Garland played on many Elvis and Roy Oribison sessions that produced hit records).

The Byrdland was the first ‘thinline’ body and has a 23.5″ scale length, so really ‘wide’ chord voicings are easier. In production since 1955, this is a 1975 example. It’s in great playing shape and it has been played.

Gibson SG Standard 1968 (consignment) SOLD

Gibson SG Standard 1968  (consignment)  SOLD

Gibson introduced what became the SG during 1961 as a Les Paul model. With the end of the Les Paul endorsement deal for this guitar, the guitars were renamed to SG, though this process didn’t end till 1963 when Gibson finally ran out of the ‘Les Paul’ branded parts! The first production models carried ‘PAF’ pickups and a unique (and quickly discontinued!) side-pull trem. Various configurations of pickups, pickguards, bridges and tailpieces followed.

The 1968 SG Standard featured a larger ‘batwing’ pickguard, two humbuckers, Kluson tuners and the Maestro Vibrola.

This example is in good playing condition but was repaired long ago.
