⚌Reduced‼Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherryburst, 1998

Here we’re looking at a Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherryburst dating to December 16th 1998 and built at the Gibson Nashville plant. It is in overall good original condition with some light wear on the back in the form of light scratches, and a number of small dents and dings around the body particularly where the player’s arm rests on the lower bass bout. It has little other wear, including negligible fret wear, and plays well. The pickups used on this Gibson Les Paul Standard are the original 498R and 490T set with chrome plated covers, and the original pickguard is still in place.

Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst, 1959

Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst, 1959

Once in a while we come across significant instruments like this, almost entirely original, 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard in Sunburst.   Often regarded as one of the Grail treasures of the guitar world, this is an instrument that hardly needs introduction. This 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard was purchased new in 1960, and has had one owner until recently. Decades ago it suffered a headstock break, which was solidly repaired at the time. We have cleaned up the aesthetics of that repair.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson ES125TC Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1969

⚌Reduced‼  Gibson ES125TC Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1969

Here is a nicely preserved Gibson ES125TC thin body archtop.  This guitar has both a single cutaway and single dog-ear P-90 pickup, and was built during 1969 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. In Gibson’s naming system, the ES stands for Electric Spanish – Spanish referring to the way the guitar is held and played – a 125 model, with the T meaning Thinline and the C denoting a cutaway.   The other version of this guitar has two pickups and is the ES125 TDC.

Fender 57 Reissue Precision Bass Sunburst, 1982

Fender 57 Reissue Precision Bass Sunburst, 1982

Here we have a Fender 57 Reissue Precision Bass, in two-tone sunburst and built during 1982 in Fullerton, California, during the period of CBS ownership. This bass reproduces the second major evolutionary step of the P-Bass towards its current form. Initially, the Precision Bass used a slab body and single-coil pickup. To keep pace with the ‘New for 1954’ Stratocaster, in that year the Precision Bass also received body contours. This lasted until 1957, when the new hum-cancelling split pickup was introduced.

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

⚌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

⚌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.
