❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior Sunburst, 1954

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior Sunburst, 1954

Here we have a wonderful rarity! One of the first Gibson Les Paul Junior Sunburst models built, from 1954 when the Junior was introduced. Intended as an entry level, student model, the Gibson Les Paul Junior Sunburst – the only finish it came in – was a bare-bones but high quality guitar with Tropical Mahogany for the body and neck, and Rosewood for the fingerboard; for most if not all of the Junior’s production run between 1954 and 1963 when it was discontinued, this meant Brazilian Rosewood. Position markers are simple Mother of Pearl dots.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom 1954 VOS Reissue Black, 1992

Introduced as the top of the line in elegance and function, the Gibson Les Paul Custom 1954 model was presented in tuxedo style finish – black, white trim, and gold hardware. Unlike the original Les Paul gold-top models which paired a carved Maple top with a mahogany body, the new Custom’s body was entirely Mahogany. New hardware appeared, as well; the new, gold-plated ABR ‘tune-o-matic’ bridge and stop tailpiece, and the Seth Lover designed, single coil ‘staple top’ Alnico V neck pickup with a P-90 at the bridge.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson 1954 Les Paul Custom Reissue Black, 2000

❌SOLD❌ Gibson 1954 Les Paul Custom Reissue Black, 2000

The Gibson 1954 Les Paul Custom was introduced as the top of the line in the new concept of the solid body electric guitar. Gibson had been producing electrified guitars since at least 1936, using designs like the Charlie Christian pickup on archtop and Hawaiian models. Ted McCarty, then president of Gibson and keenly aware of the competitive potential of Leo Fender’s designs, worked with Les Paul to produce a solid body electric worthy of the Gibson name.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SJ-200 Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 1954

The Gibson SJ-200 has been in continuous production since 1938, with a hiatus during the WW2 years 1944 to 1946. Renamed the J-200 in 1955, it is one of Gibson’s most recognisable and popular designs. It appears on many recordings and stages. Though it’s often associated with Country and Western, it is the acoustic used on both The Who’s Pinball Wizard and all the acoustic parts on the first Led Zeppelin album.
