❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Classic Vintage Sunburst, 2008

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Classic Vintage Sunburst, 2008

The Gibson Les Paul Classic Vintage has been produced over several periods – from 1990 to 1998, then from 2000 to 2008, and currently since 2014. For this example, the model features a weight-relieved or partially chambered body, nicely figured top and a bound headstock. This example dates to a fairly warm Thursday, September 4th, 2008 and was built at the Gibson plant in Nashville, Tennessee. It features a nicely flamed maple top with a dark vintage sunburst finish in gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, and the standard Les Paul construction of mahogany body and neck with bound rosewood fingerboard. The head is also bound, a feature otherwise generally found only on the Les Paul Custom. Specific to this model, there are custom routes placed strategically in the body to reduce weight and provide resonance.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Studio Arctic White, 2013

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Studio Arctic White, 2013

This new, older stock 2013 model Gibson Les Paul Studio in Arctic White. This is a remarkable instrument, using the classic Les Paul design but stripped down in terms of decoration. It is very resonant with lots of sustain, but is light and well balanced. And, because it’s a Studio model, it’s considerably less expensive than a Les Paul Standard, Classic, Traditional or Custom, though it is made in the USA, in the same Gibson Nashville, Tennessee facility.
For added tonal versatility, the two volume control pots are push-pull models, wired to activate a tap on the Gibson USA Modern Classic pickups – a 490R in the neck position and a 498T at the bridge.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Explorer Koa Natural, 2004

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Explorer Koa Natural, 2004

By the late 1950’s Gibson head Ted McCarty was looking for futuristic, fresh new designs, and in 1958 the radically different Gibson Explorer, Flying V and supremely rare Moderne made appearances. None were successful at the time – fewer than 50 Explorers were built over a few years and the Moderne didn’t make it past prototype. Both the Explorer and Flying V were officially discontinued in 1959.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson BB King Lucille Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1995

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson BB King Lucille Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1995

The Gibson BB King Lucille was created for the very real needs of a constantly working guitarist dealing with the reality of stage volumes. BB King led a relatively large band, and tended to turn his amp to 10 and control volume from the guitar. This could easily result in wild feedback.
