❌SOLD❌ Gibson SG Junior Cherry, 1964

The Gibson SG Junior was built from 1963 to 1971, again from 1991 to 1994, and is back in the catalog. This model is the descendant of the 1954 Les Paul Junior. Designed to be an entry level yet high quality instrument, the Junior line featured a full scale length, Mahogany slab body, Mahogany neck, unbound Rosewood fingerboard, a single ‘dogear’ P-90 pickup with volume and tone controls. Kluson Deluxe strip tuners were installed, with a stop-bar style wraparound bridge at the body end.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst 2008

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst 2008

Here we’re looking at a Gibson Les Paul Standard dating to July 25th, 2008 and built at the Gibson Nashville plant. This example has the classic Gibson Cherry sunburst, and based on an 8.4lb (3.8kg) weight-relieved body, making it much more comfortable than many other Les Paul examples. This model also uses the old Kluson style tuners, though they were likely made by Gotoh and are quite good. These tuners were often replaced on older models, but they are quite a bit lighter than the usual replacement (Grover Roto-Matic models, typically) and this can help reduce inertia damage at the headstock should the guitar fall.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES345 TD Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1966

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES345 TD Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1966

Here is a very nice and largely original Gibson ES345 TD in sunburst finish and with a Trapeze tailpiece, built during 1966 at the Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  On the label, the TD in the model name stand for ‘Thinline Double Pickup’. Sometimes you’ll see a ‘C’ added, which denotes Cherry finish. ‘ES’ stands for Electric Spanish, referring to the way the instrument is built and played – another Gibson option was ‘EH’ for Electric Hawaiian, used on steel and lap steel guitars played with a bar, steel or slide.

Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed Black, 1986

Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed Black, 1986

Here we have a Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed model, in gloss black! Dating to 1986, this example is in overall good condition with a few bumps. Production of left handed Gibson Les Paul models has never been extensive, but does date back to the late 1950’s. There are at least three known, surviving left handed Les Paul Standards built between 1958 and 1960, which indicates how few were really made.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Tobacco Sunburst, 2007

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Tobacco Sunburst, 2007

The Gibson Les Paul Standard as a distinct model appeared in 1958, based on the 1957 Les Paul Gold Top that carried the new Humbucking pickups but with a sunburst finish and a figured top. However, the Les Paul was declining in popularity, and the model was completely redesigned as what we now know as the SG, for 1961. The traditional single-cutaway Les Paul was out of production until 1968.
