❌SOLD❌Gibson Les Paul Classic Bullion Gold, 1990

Here is a bit of a rarity – a Gibson Les Paul Classic Bullion Gold finish. This model isn’t just a Gold Top – the entire guitar is gold!   This example was built during 1990, and while this finish was available for perhaps three years, it was not common. It is definitely classy and eye-catching!  The Gibson Les Paul Classic Bullion Gold is built like other carved-top Les Pauls, with a bound Maple cap on a Mahogany body, paired with a Mahogany neck and bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SG ‘Batwing’ Standard Cherry, 2012

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SG 'Batwing' Standard Cherry, 2012

The Gibson SG ‘Batwing’ Standard started appearing in 1966, displacing the smaller, treble-side pickguard, offering much more protection to the top of the guitar during enthusiastic use. The SG itself was originally introduced as the 1961 Les Paul, but without Les Paul’s input and at the end of his endorsement contract. For various reasons, the Les Paul name was dropped for 1963 production and has been the SG or ‘Solid Guitar’ since.

The Gibson LP Custom – the Les Paul  Custom – appeared in 1954 and aside from 1963 to 1968 has been part of the Les Paul Lineup since then in various forms. Aside from specialty models like the Supreme, it’s always been the top of the Les Paul line, with gold plated hardware, extra binding and more Mother of Pearl inlays.  Some versions after the 1957 introduction of the new humbucking pickup,  sported three pickups.

❌SOLD❌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.

🚩SALE • Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

🚩SALE • Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

Originally released in 1958 the Flying V introduced a radical and futuristic body shape which became an iconic staple of rock and roll and heavy metal! The Gibson Flying V 2017 T pays tribute to design features that became common place through the 70’s while using alternate woods such as Grenadillo for the fretboard. The Gibson Flying V 2017 T uses a large double wing mahogany body attached to a slim taper mahogany neck, which is very fast playing with the ultimate access to the upper frets due to the body design. There is really no body mass getting in the way of your hand when reaching for the highest notes.
