❌SOLD❌ Gibson ESDP 335 Dot Neck Plain Top Thinline Sunburst, 2006

The Gibson ESDP 335 was identical to other 335 models – the distinguishing characteristics are the use of dot position markers instead of blocks, and plain, un-figured Maple laminates for the body.   For hardware, there’s a set of Grover Roto-Matics at the head, a standard tune-0-matic and stop tailpiece set, and a pair of Classic 57 pickups with standard wiring.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Jr Solidbody Cherry, 1959

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Jr Solidbody Cherry, 1959

The Gibson Les Paul Junior, introduced in 1954 as a single cutaway, single pickup slab body model was Gibson’s lowest price solidbody until the 1959 Melody Maker. This Gibson Les Paul Junior dates to 1959 at the Gibson plant on Parsons Street, Kalamazoo, Michigan. It is in good playing condition, with no breaks or cracks. The 7th fret dot position marker is missing, but can easily be replaced. The original stop-bridge is in the case, and on the guitar a compensated aftermarket bridge is in place.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul 1959 Historic Vintage Sunburst, 2009

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul 1959 Historic Vintage Sunburst, 2009

The Gibson Les Paul 1959 Historic aims to be an accurate re-creation of the classic and influential 1959 Les Paul Standard. The Les Paul model was introduced in 1952, but was not particularly successful. In 1958, the line was updated to include Gibson’s new humbucking pickups, and sunburst finishes instead of Black (the Custom) or the Gold Top. The shift to sunburst, a translucent finish, meant that the Maple top had to be a higher grade. The rest of the guitar was the same – Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, with Mahogany for the neck and Rosewood for the fingerboard.

Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019

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.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES137 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 2004

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES137 Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 2004

Built from 2002 to 2013 in Memphis as a limited production instrument, the Gibson ES137 is intended to bring together the sounds of an archtop and a Les Paul Classic. Two versions were produced – the Classic and Custom, with the key difference being that the Custom had an ebony fingerboard and a Varitone circuit. Gibson has long built archtop electric guitars, and the ES-137 takes cues from many older designs.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom Sunburst, 1979

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Custom Sunburst, 1979

Here we’re looking at a Gibson Les Paul Custom Sunburst, dating to March 27 1979 and still built at the historic Kalamazoo plant. It has all the characteristics of the Norlin ownership era, from 1970 to 1983. These include a Maple neck rather than Mahogany, a decreased pitch for the headstock, and a volute behind the truss rod adjuster cavity. These changes were intended to reduce the number of broken headstocks.
