❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus Top Heritage Cherry Burst, 2007

Gibson has been quietly building Les Paul Standard Plus Top since about 2002, with the ‘Plus’ referring to the quality and amount of figure on the carved Maple top. Many of these models are also weight relieved, with slimmer ‘1960s’ profile necks and are very good instruments, not just beautiful pieces of functional art.Here we’re treated to a pristine Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus Top with Heritage Cherry sunburst finish. This guitar dates to June 27th, 2007 at the Nashville plant – before the devastating floods.

The Gibson Byrdland thinline archtop electric appeared in 1955 and represents a functional adaptation to traditional archtop electrics.

As busy players, Byrd and Garland wanted a shorter scale length of 23.5 inches to allow complex, extended chord shapes.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-359 Limited Edition Inverness Green, 2010

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-359 Limited Edition Inverness Green, 2010

The Gibson ES-359 is related to the ES-339 in the same way that the ES-355 relates to the ES-335 – in the most part, more complex binding, an Ebony fingerboard, and mother of pearl block position markers. Structurally, they use the same core design and construction.Like the other ES-3×5 and 3×9 models, the ES-359 uses a thinline body of Maple laminate with a Maple center block to suppress feedback. The neck is Mahogany, with a bound Ebony fingerboard. The body and head binding are more elaborate than the lower models, with multi-layer binding on the top (7 layer) and front of the head (5 layer), while the back gets 3-layer binding treatment.
