❌SOLD❌ Gibson EDS 1275 Doubleneck Guitar Cherry, 1997

❌SOLD❌ Gibson EDS 1275 Doubleneck Guitar Cherry, 1997

This is one of the most recognizable guitars in the world, though it is not common – the Gibson EDS 1275 Doubleneck has become an iconic instrument seen in larger shows. EDS stands for Electric Double Spanish, with Spanish referring to the way the guitar is held – as distinct from Hawaiian or lap models.  Most of the double neck models we see are copies, but this is the real deal! The concept of the double neck guitar may draw from the Harp Guitar, which appeared in the early 19th century, and from the very few double neck guitars from the 17th century. Gibson began producing a few double neck instruments in the late 1950’s, including a semi-hollow, carved spruce topped model with lower 6-string and upper octave necks.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES339 Thinline Vintage Sunburst, 2011

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES339 Thinline Vintage Sunburst, 2011

This very clean Gibson ES339 Thinline Archtop Electric in Antique Vintage Sunburst was built during 2011 at the now-closed Memphis plant. Based on the successful ES-335, the ES-339 scales down the body width and length while maintaining the scale length and neck width. The result is a very comfortable and extremely versatile guitar with classic looks. Construction of the Gibson ES339 Thinline Archtop Electric follows the pattern of Gibson’s ES models and how that was adapted to the ground-breaking 1958 ES-335. From the late 1940’s, Gibson started using Maple Laminates for the top, back and sides of their electrified archtops in an effort to reduce both feedback and costs.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior Sunburst, 1954

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior Sunburst, 1954

Here we have a wonderful rarity! One of the first Gibson Les Paul Junior Sunburst models built, from 1954 when the Junior was introduced. Intended as an entry level, student model, the Gibson Les Paul Junior Sunburst – the only finish it came in – was a bare-bones but high quality guitar with Tropical Mahogany for the body and neck, and Rosewood for the fingerboard; for most if not all of the Junior’s production run between 1954 and 1963 when it was discontinued, this meant Brazilian Rosewood. Position markers are simple Mother of Pearl dots.

Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

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.

Gibson Les Paul Studio T New Old Stock Red, 2016

Gibson Les Paul Studio T New Old Stock Red, 2016

This Gibson Les Paul Studio T, “new old stock” from 2017 features a fast playing slim taper neck and a modern weight relieved body for a lighter instrument and enhanced resonance. The two humbuckers used on the Gibson Les Paul Studio T are the classic 490R at the neck and 498T  in the bridge position. These are a bit hotter than some other Gibson humbuckers, and can really push the front end of an amp for searing crunch and sustain. The classic two volume and two tone control layout adds independent coil tapping for the pickups so you can get single coil style sounds for more tonal versatility.
