❌SOLD❌ Gibson CS Les Paul Custom Black, 2014

❌SOLD❌ Gibson CS Les Paul Custom Black, 2014

Built at the now-closed Gibson Memphis Custom Shop, this gloss black CS Les Paul Custom dates to 2014 and has all the class and looks of the Custom. The Gibson Les Paul Custom was introduced for the 1954 model year as a ‘dressed up’ version of Gibson’s then-new Les Paul model. The black finish with white multi-ply binding were meant to suggest a tuxedo. At first, it was equipped with a P-90 at the bridge and a ‘Stape Top’ Alnico V pickup at the neck. More important, though, was the wood choice.

Here is a rarity a 2012 Gibson Les Paul Traditional 12 string, model LPTD12EBCH1 built in a run of 225, 75 in Ebony finish.  It is uncommon to see a 12-string Les Paul in the flesh.
Based closely on the six-string Traditional model, the Gibson Les Paul Traditional 12 looks at first just like a black Les Paul – until you notice the headstock with an extra set of gears.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson RD Standard Solidbody Electric Maple, 1977

The Gibson RD Standard was built in Kalamazoo, Michigan from 1977 to 1979, though some of the Artist models were made as late as 1982. Using Maple as the primary material for the body and neck, Rosewood was used for the Standard fingerboard and Ebony or Maple for the Artist models. The RD Standard has fairly ordinary electronics – a pair of humbuckers, a three way pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Byrdland Venetian Cutaway Archtop Sunburst, 1991

The Gibson Byrdland Florentine Cutaway model has been in production since 1955 though Gibson also offers the original sharp Venetian cutaway. It is based on a thinline version of the classic L5-CES body, but with a short scale length of 23.5 inches, two inches shorter than the L5. The Byrdland was introduced as a custom model for two top Nashville session players, Billy Byrd and Hank Garland.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Byrdland Florentine Cutaway Sunburst, 1968

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Byrdland Florentine Cutaway Sunburst, 1968

The Gibson Byrdland Florentine cutaway model originally had a rounded, ‘Venetian’ cutaway between its introduction in 1955 and 1960, and regained the Venetian cutaway in 1969. Modern Custom Shop ‘reissue’ models are available with either shape, since 1992. The Byrdland had its origins in the requirements of busy working session guitarists – two working session guitarists in particular. Hank Garland and Billy Byrd were two of the top Nashville players throughout the 1950’s.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Special TV Yellow, 1993

The construction of the Gibson Les Paul Special is simple. Mahogany is used for a slab body, and the neck. Rosewood is used for the bound fingerboard – and that’s it for wood selection. Hardware is also straightforward, with Kluson Deluxe tuners at the head – originally strip tuners, now individual gears -and at the other end, a stop bar tailpiece. Electronics include a pair of P-90 single coil pickups, pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls; the output jack is on the side.
