⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Les Paul Special TV Yellow, 1958

⚌Reduced‼  Gibson Les Paul Special TV Yellow, 1958

The Gibson Les Paul Special TV model appeared in 1955, with the ‘TV’ referring to a special ‘limed’ finish intended to make the guitar more visible on black and white televisions and films. This finish had become available in 1954 on the Les Paul TV, a single-pickup Les Paul Junior. Both models used a slab Mahogany body with no Maple cap, and a Mahogany neck, with a bound Rosewood fingerboard, which into the mid 1960’s meant Brazilian Rosewood.

SOLD‼ Gibson Les Paul GoldTop, 1954

SOLD‼ Gibson Les Paul GoldTop, 1954

Here is a beautiful rarity, a real treat – a Gibson Les Paul GoldTop from 1954, and not just with a gold top but fully gold finished! This was known as the ‘Double Gold’ finish. This beautiful piece has clearly been used as intended over nearly seven decades, and the gold finish has worn where the player’s hands and clothing contacted it.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Classic P90 Pelham Blue, 2018

The Gibson Les Paul Classic P90 hearkens back to the 1954 models when the tune-o-matic and stop tailpiece combination were introduced. A big difference is the Pelham Blue finish instead of a gold top! Built during 2018 at Gibson Nashville, this Gibson Les Paul Classic is excellent, clean and all original condition, with virtually no wear. It appears nearly unplayed.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson 1957 Les Paul Junior Reissue Sunburst, 2007

Built in the Nashville Custom Shop, the Gibson 1957 Les Paul Junior Reissue is a faithful recreation of a simple yet surprisingly versatile instrument. Launched in 1954 as an entry level, student model with a single cutaway and single P90 pickup, the Les Paul Junior had its first major revision in 1958 with a second cutaway to the body.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior DC Cherry, 1961

The Gibson Les Paul Junior DC – Double Cutaway – appeared in 1958 as a modification of the 1954 single-cutaway version. The next modification came partway through 1961 with a complete redesign of the body as Gibson shifted to what’s now known as the SG.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-295 Archtop Electric Double Gold, 1953

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES-295 Archtop Electric Double Gold, 1953

This is a wonderful rarity. Built during 1953, this is an early Gibson ES-295 in good, clean and largely original condition, showing some honest finish wear and tear from real use over the decades. It’s easy to confuse the Gibson ES-295 with the classic ES-175, and there’s a good reason – they are the same guitar, but the ES-295 has a double gold finish and when introduced, two pickups instead of one.
