❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul 59 Reissue Custom Shop Sunburst, 2001

❌SOLD❌ 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.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES 150 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1939

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES 150 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1939

The Gibson ES 150 was one of the earliest production electric guitars, and perhaps the first successful Electric Spanish – as distinct from Electric Hawaiian – guitars. Built from 1936 to 1956, the Gibson ES 150 is full bodied non-cutaway archtop guitar with a solid Spruce top and Mahogany for the back, sides, neck, body blocks and back bracing; the bridge and bound fingerboard are Rosewood, and for the period, it’s expected that the ‘Brazilian’ is silent. Brazilian Rosewood has become exotic and restricted, but at the time it was very common.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson J50 Slope Shoulder Jumbo Guitar Natural, 1953

❌SOLD❌   Gibson J50 Slope Shoulder Jumbo Guitar Natural, 1953

The Gibson J50 Slope Shouldered jumbo model was introduced in 1947 as an ‘upgrade’ to the successful J-45, with a natural finish showing off the higher quality Spruce top. The J-50 was built until 1982, shifting to a square shoulder body design for 1969, and has been reissued from time to time. This is a relatively early Gibson J50, built during 1953 at the Gibson Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Built almost exactly like the iconic J45, this J50 uses Adirondack Spruce for the top and top bracing, with Mahogany for the back, sides, neck, body blocks, linings and back bracing.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES125 D Sunburst, 1957

❌SOLD❌   Gibson ES125 D Sunburst, 1957

Here is a rarity, built only during 1957 and in a quantity of less than 30. While the base model is common, the two pickup Gibson ES125 D is not. Introduced in 1946 as the effects of WW2 wound down, demand rose and materials became available again, the Gibson ES-125 was intended as a student model but has been used by many professionals over the decades. The ES-125 line was discontinued in 1970, though after 1960 or so most of the related models had the ‘T’ or Thinline body that was introduced in 1956.
