❌SOLD❌  Martin D18 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 1956

The Martin D18 Dreadnought appeared in 1931 as banjo players increasingly converted to guitar, and required ever increasing volume levels. For the first three years, the D-18 was built with a 12-fret neck, but the banjo influence quickly added two more frets clear of the body. As a 14-fret dreadnought, the D18 and its sibling the D-28 rapidly became the guitar of choice for country, bluegrass and folk players.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst 2008

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst 2008

Here we’re looking at a Gibson Les Paul Standard dating to July 25th, 2008 and built at the Gibson Nashville plant. This example has the classic Gibson Cherry sunburst, and based on an 8.4lb (3.8kg) weight-relieved body, making it much more comfortable than many other Les Paul examples. This model also uses the old Kluson style tuners, though they were likely made by Gotoh and are quite good. These tuners were often replaced on older models, but they are quite a bit lighter than the usual replacement (Grover Roto-Matic models, typically) and this can help reduce inertia damage at the headstock should the guitar fall.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed Black, 1986

Here we have a Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed model, in gloss black! Dating to 1986, this example is in overall good condition with a few bumps. Production of left handed Gibson Les Paul models has never been extensive, but does date back to the late 1950’s. There are at least three known, surviving left handed Les Paul Standards built between 1958 and 1960, which indicates how few were really made.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Tobacco Sunburst, 2007

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Tobacco Sunburst, 2007

The Gibson Les Paul Standard as a distinct model appeared in 1958, based on the 1957 Les Paul Gold Top that carried the new Humbucking pickups but with a sunburst finish and a figured top. However, the Les Paul was declining in popularity, and the model was completely redesigned as what we now know as the SG, for 1961. The traditional single-cutaway Les Paul was out of production until 1968.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom Black, 1974

First appearing in 1953, the Gibson Les Paul Custom began as an upmarket version of Gibson’s new solidbody, with a solid Mahogany cap instead of Maple and P90 pickups and a dramatic black finish. Here we’re looking at a Gibson Les Paul Custom in Black, built likely during 1974 at the Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. At this point, Gibson was well into planning their move to Nashville, but the new plant was not ready until 1984.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus Top Heritage Cherry Burst, 2007

Gibson has been quietly building Les Paul Standard Plus Top since about 2002, with the ‘Plus’ referring to the quality and amount of figure on the carved Maple top. Many of these models are also weight relieved, with slimmer ‘1960s’ profile necks and are very good instruments, not just beautiful pieces of functional art.Here we’re treated to a pristine Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus Top with Heritage Cherry sunburst finish. This guitar dates to June 27th, 2007 at the Nashville plant – before the devastating floods.
