Gibson Les Paul Jr Solidbody Cherry, 1959

Gibson Les Paul Jr Solidbody Cherry, 1959

The Gibson Les Paul Junior, introduced in 1954 as a single cutaway, single pickup slab body model was Gibson’s lowest price solidbody until the 1959 Melody Maker. This Gibson Les Paul Junior dates to 1959 at the Gibson plant on Parsons Street, Kalamazoo, Michigan. It is in good playing condition, with no breaks or cracks. The 7th fret dot position marker is missing, but can easily be replaced. The original stop-bridge is in the case, and on the guitar a compensated aftermarket bridge is in place.

Rickenbacker 4001 Bass JetGlo Black, 1973

Rickenbacker 4001 Bass JetGlo Black, 1973

One of the iconic rock basses, the Rickenbacker 4001 bass was built as a two-pickup version of the 4000 bass, adding a neck pickup to the distinctive Cresting Wave body design by German luthier and designer Roger Rossmeisl. Built from 1961 to 1986 when it was replaced by the 4003 bass, the Rickenbacker 4001 bass features a Maple body and through-body Maple neck, with a bound and finished Indian Rosewood fingerboard.   Rickenbacker’s rosewoods tend to be quite light coloured, almost towards the colour tones of other species such as Pau Ferro.

Gibson U2 ‘SuperStrat’ Metallic Green, 1989

Gibson U2 'SuperStrat' Metallic Green, 1989

During the 1980s popular music made new demands on guitarists, and the ‘SuperStrat’, including the Gibson U2 model, became the go-to design for countless musicians. As the name suggests, the ‘SuperStrat’ concept improves on many aspects of the Stratocaster design – particularly in the range of available vibrato systems and pickup options. Many guitars in this genre use locking vibratos, a mix of high-output single coil and humbucking pickups, and wiring that ranges from very simple to rather complex.

Collings 290 DC Custom Sunburst, 2016

Collings 290 DC Custom Sunburst, 2016

The Collings 290 DC Custom is, as the name suggests, a custom version of the Collings DC – conceptually similar to the late 1950s Les Paul Special but with humbucking pickups and comfort contours. We can’t recall seeing a Collings guitar that didn’t impress us.  This example is no exception. Collings finishes are among the best nitrocellulose lacquer finishes we see – they have definitely mastered this art.

Gibson Les Paul 1959 Historic Vintage Sunburst, 2009

Gibson Les Paul 1959 Historic Vintage Sunburst, 2009

The Gibson Les Paul 1959 Historic aims to be an accurate re-creation of the classic and influential 1959 Les Paul Standard. The Les Paul model was introduced in 1952, but was not particularly successful. In 1958, the line was updated to include Gibson’s new humbucking pickups, and sunburst finishes instead of Black (the Custom) or the Gold Top. The shift to sunburst, a translucent finish, meant that the Maple top had to be a higher grade. The rest of the guitar was the same – Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, with Mahogany for the neck and Rosewood for the fingerboard.

Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop, 1969

Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop, 1969

The Gibson Les Paul Deluxe was built from late 1968 to 1985, and used an original style body layout and finish. The pickup cavities reflect the use of P90 pickups, though what was installed was a ‘New York’ mini humbucker mounted in a modified P90 cover, all in a gold top finish. Gibson launched the Les Paul in 1952, using a now-classic pairing of a Maple top on a Mahogany body, with a Mahogany neck and bound Rosewood fingerboard. By late 1952, the design was modified to increase the neck angle allowing better action and breakover at the bridge saddles and in 1954, the new Tune-O-Matic and Stop Tailpiece were added.

Fender Stratocaster Elite Sunburst 1983

Fender Stratocaster Elite Sunburst 1983

Here’s a rare bird – from 1983, a Fender Stratocaster Elite in sunburst. This model was built only in 1983 and 1984, and introduced a number of new features and hardware pieces. Most visible of these are the short-lived FreeFlyte knife-edge trem, and the pushbutton pickup selectors. New pickups were installed, and the output jack went on the side – in this case, a Neutrix locking jack. With the three pickup switches, all pickup combinations are available. Not so immediately apparent is the routing. From the top, this guitar looks very much like a Stratocaster. But if you turn it over, you see that there is no cover, or route, for the trem springs, just a small plate covering access to the output jack wiring.

Gibson Firebird T Vintage Sunburst 2017

Gibson Firebird T Vintage Sunburst 2017

This new Gibson Firebird T Vintage Sunburst  – The Twelfth Fret is one of the best renditions of the model that I’ve seen,  with great build quality and changes to the hardware that improve the instrument as a whole.
The very first versions of the Firebird appeared in 1963 and used a neck-through-body design. In this design, the neck was one piece of wood extending the full length of the instrument.
