Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Black, 1988

Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Black, 1988

Designed to express class and quality, the Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Black with gold plated appointments appeared in 1954 and has been top of the range since. From introduction until the single-cutaway Les Paul design was dropped in 1961, the Custom lacked the Maple cap the other carved-top models had and was all-Mahogany. When the design was re-introduced in 1968 and to the present day, that changed and the basic construction has been the same as for the other models.

Fender Telecaster Natural Finish, 1983

The 1983 Fender Telecaster Natural Finish seen here is from the closing days of CBS ownership of Fender and the end of production in Fullerton, California. This 1983 example of the Fender Telecaster Natural is in overall good condition, with a few non-original components. The original pickups were replaced with Fender Noiseless models, and the tuners have been swapped for modern Fender tuners.

Eastman T186MX Thinline Hollowbody Classic Sunburst, 2011

Eastman T186MX Thinline Hollowbody Classic Sunburst, 2011

The Eastman company builds more arched top instruments than anyone else, and they apply their expertise to thinline archtop electrics like the Eastman T186MX. This model seems largely based on classic thinline hollowbodies like the Casino and ES-330. Featuring solid wood construction, the Eastman T186MX has a solid, carved flame Maple top, solid Mahogany sides and solid mahogany carved back with a support block under the bridge and tailpiece.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019 NOS

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019 NOS

Built at the Gibson Nashville plant, the new Gibson Firebird closely – but not entirely – follows the original construction concepts of the first Firebirds. Most importantly, this is a neck-through design, with the neck and the body built up of a total of five pieces of Mahogany over their length, and four Walnut strips bracketing the center sections. This multi-piece construction is used to provide extra stability over the long section.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Custom Le Grande Archtop Electric Natural, 2008

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Custom Le Grande Archtop Electric Natural, 2008

Here is a rare beauty – a Gibson Custom Le Grande archtop electric model from 2008, the successor to the classic Johnny Smith model built from 1961 to 1989. The Le Grande made its debut in 1993 and while it hasn’t appeared on Gibson’s website or catalog since around 2010, is still available on special order. The ‘stock’ finish is a Vintage Sunburst, with the Natural finish seen here as an extra-cost option. Always intended for the serious professional guitarist and never in mass production, the Gibson Custom Le Grande features a 17 inch wide body with carved, solid Sitka Spruce top, carved solid and highly figured Maple back and figured maple sides.
