Gibson ES-355 Mono with Sideways Vibrola, Cherry 1961

Gibson ES-355 Mono with Sideways Vibrola, Cherry 1961

When the Gibson ES-355 appeared alongside the ES-335 and ES-345 appeared in 1958, they were a hit and the ES-335 was the top of the line, with all the extras included as standard. As stock, it always included a vibrato tailpiece – either a Bigsby, a Maestro Vibrola, or the all-new Sideways Vibrola. In addition, the ES-355 was wired in ‘Stereo’ with two jacks so each pickup could go to a separate amplifier or channel.

Gibson SG Custom Natural Mahogany, 1974

Gibson SG Custom Natural Mahogany, 1974

The Gibson SG Custom appeared in 1963, though originally as the new, slim double cutaway 1961 Les Paul. By 1963, Les Paul’s endorsement with Gibson had ended, so his name was removed. Featuring the now-familiar solid mahogany body, the SG Custom differs from ‘lesser’ SG models with bound neck and headstock, ebony fingerboard with Mother of Pearl block inlays, gold hardware, either a Vibrola or Stop tailpiece, and often three pickups.

SOLD! Gibson Keb Mo Steel String Guitar Sunburst 2014

SOLD!  Gibson Keb Mo Steel String Guitar Sunburst 2014

The Gibson Keb Mo model uses the L-body, with a 12-fret neck design that puts the bridge close to the vibrating center of the Adirondack Red Spruce top. The back, sides and neck are Mahogany, a pairing that provides a crisp, sparkling clarity and good note separation. The fingerboard and bridge are East Indian Rosewood. The body is bound with a creme ivoroid and herringbone purfling. Herringbone was a very common guitar decoration right up until World War II, but it came from Germany and when US stocks ran out, they couldn’t be replenished. Most subsequent instruments used plainer, multi-layer purfling. The tuning gears are Grover Sta-Tite models.
