⚌Reduced‼  Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker Manhattan Midnight,  2014

The Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker appeared in 2014 as a 120th Anniversary model – a US made, reasonably priced high quality carved-top guitar with a solid history behind the names. The Melody Maker appeared in 1959 and built until 1971 as an entry level, thin slab Mahogany bodied single cutaway model, with one or two single coil pickups and a narrow headstock. The neck was Mahogany with a Rosewood fingerboard. For 1961, a second cutaway was added, but it wasn’t until 1967 that the Melody Maker got the ‘SG’ body shape.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Custom Shop SG Metallic Emerald Green, 1993

Here we have another rarity – from September 1993, a Gibson Custom Shop SG in Emerald Green Metallic finish with gold hardware and pearloid pickguard! The Gibson SG had been produced for three years before it gained the name ‘SG’. It was originally introduced in 1961 as a complete redesign of the then-unpopular single cutaway, carved Maple top Les Paul model. An additional driving factor was addressing Fender’s characterization of Gibson as old-fashioned.

The Gibson SG Standard utilizes classic design elements and features from the late 60’s models that are sought after by many players. The rounded double cutaway body and long tenon 19th fret neck joint provide excellent, nearly unrestricted access all the way up the fretboard. The neck profile is rounded and feels very solid without being too thick. The electronics featured on the Gibson SG Standard are the traditional two volume, two tone controls with three way toggle switch and 490R and 490T humbuckers with Alnico 2 magnets.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Batwing SG Standard, Cherry 2005

The Gibson Batwing SG made its debut in 1966, with an extended pickguard covering the top above, between and below the strings, and also supporting the pickups. These were produced until 1971, at which point the SG Deluxe replaced it. The SG has been used by many players over the years, and the Gibson Batwing SG is very frequently seen in the hands of the great Angus Young of AC/DC. The large ‘batwing’ pickguard is well suited to an active playing style. It offers significant protection to the finish. And, incidentally, much easier pickup and electronic maintenance. That can be a real bonus for a touring musician!

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SG Standard Tribute Walnut 2019

The Gibson SG Standard first appeared in 1961 as a radical update to the Les Paul model, and bore the Les Paul name until 1963. This change had two drivers – one, Les Paul himself was not overly fond of the design, and his endorsement association with Gibson was coming to an end, partly due to complications with his divorce from Mary Ford. With the change in name, the Les Paul models disappeared from production until 1968, its resurgence sparked by the combination of that guitar and Marshall stacks as used by British blues-influenced players.
