Gibson Les Paul 59 Reissue Custom Shop Sunburst, 2001

Gibson Les Paul 59 Reissue Custom Shop Sunburst, 2001

This Gibson Les Paul 59 Reissue is in all original, overall good condition. Finish and fret wear are light, and a headstock crack has been nicely repaired – only regluing was necessary, and it is quite stable. The Maple top has an interesting figure, combining Flame and Quilt effects. This kind of figuring is really set off by a sunburst finish, and the washed-out cherry sunburst here complements it very well.

Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic Blonde, 2016

Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic Blonde, 2016

The Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic features a light-weight Ash body, and a full-U profile, one piece Maple neck. This neck design was one of Leo Fender’s breakthroughs. The finish reproduces the original nitrocellulose lacquer ‘blonde’, but with significant wear. Tuners are Kluson Deluxe style with metal buttons, as Fender continued to use for decades. The bridge offers three Brass saddles, and has the Patent Pending stamp, as many early 1950’s models did (until Fender ran out and had to re-order).

It plays very well, is extremely responsive with a full, rich and sparkling tone, and it’s quite light. A classic C F Martin logo is also executed in Abalone. The fingerboard and bridge features a classic Snowflake motif, again in Abalone.

❌SOLD ❌ Gibson Flying V Black, 1993

❌SOLD ❌  Gibson Flying V Black, 1993

The Gibson Flying V was introduced in 1958 as part of an effort by Ted McCarty to modernize Gibson’s reputation with futuristic designs, along with the Explorer and the only-prototyped Moderne. While a few prominent players immediately picked up the Flying V, it was not popular and production ceased by 1959. During 1963, a few were built from leftover parts, but the two initial 1958 production batches totaled around 80 instruments.
