❌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.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Gibson ES-345 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1964

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Gibson ES-345 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, 1964

The Gibson ES-345 is the middle range of Gibson’s ES Thinline series and first appeared in 1958, using the new Seth Lover designed Humbucking pickups.
It’s a real treat to see and play a relatively early model ES-345, this one built in 1964 at the Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and especially one in such good physical and playing condition. This guitar has been refretted and plays very nicely. The finish is in good condition, especially considering that it’s been played enough to require a refret; there is a fair amount of finish wear on the back of the neck between the 3rd and 7th positions to bare wood, but there are no dents or dings.

Here’s a rare oddity – custom built to order by Gibson during 1961, a melding of a Gibson L-5 style six string neck and a Gibson Mastertone RB-3 banjo pot. This unique instrument is in very good complete and original condition.
