❌SOLD❌ Gibson Memphis ES330 VOS Sunburst, 2013

The Gibson Memphis ES330 VOS model is now discontinued, along with the Memphis plant, but is a great re-creation of a late 1950’s ES-330. Introduced in 1959, the ES-330 took visual cues from the new and very successful ES-335, but is uses a fully hollow body without a solid center block. A pair of under-wound P-90s provide great tone. Until about 1963, the ES330 and its cousin the Epiphone Casino set the neck joint at the 16th fret but subsequently the joint was shifted to the 19th fret, allowing easier access to higher frets.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson 57 Reissue Les Paul Junior Faded Cherry, 2007

❌SOLD❌ Gibson 57 Reissue Les Paul Junior Faded Cherry, 2007

The Gibson 57 Reissue Les Paul Junior is a re-creation of one of the popular entry level Les Paul, introduced in 1954. Here we’re looking at a Gibson 57 Reissue Les Paul Junior in a Faded Cherry nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Like its source, this guitar is simply built with Mahogany slab body, a Mahogany neck with full ‘baseball bat’ neck profile and an Indian Rosewood fingerboard – the 1950s originals would have used Brazilian Rosewood. This guitar has been played, and there’s an amount of ‘buckle rash’ on the back.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson GoldTop Les Paul P90s, 1968

❌SOLD❌ Gibson GoldTop Les Paul P90s, 1968

The Gibson GoldTop Les Paul first appeared in 1952 and was replaced in 1958 with the sunburst. The original design was dropped in 1961 and re-appeared in 1968. Until the 1954 introduction of the Custom, and 1955 Junior and Special, there was only one model – the Les Paul, available only with the Gold Top finish. The name ‘Les Paul Standard’ launched with the 1959 Sunburst, and along with the Custom model, continued through the transition to the SG body design. By 1968, demand for the Les Paul had increased dramatically, largely due to young Blues-Rock players like Keith Richards, Mike Bloomfield, and Eric Clapton.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson 1958 Les Paul Junior Double Cut Historic Reissue TV White, 2004

Here’s a Gibson 1958 Les Paul Junior Double Cut Historic Reissue in TV White, built during 2004 at the Nashville Custom Shop. Introduced in 1954 as a simplified, entry level Les Paul model, the Les Paul Junior featured two woods – Honduran Mahogany for the slab body and neck, and Rosewood for the fingerboard – which until the end of the Junior’s production in 1963 meant Brazilian Rosewood.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Deluxe GoldTop, 1970

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Deluxe GoldTop, 1970

Built from 1969 to 1985, the Gibson Les Paul Deluxe GoldTop was a renaming of the Les Paul Standard, but used the original P-90 body route and a pair of mini-humbuckers mounted in modified P-90 covers. This allowed for a low cost refresh of the model, co-incidentally using up parts Gibson had on hand. Initially introduced in 1952, the Gibson Les Paul carried the GoldTop finish, a pair of P-90s, and a trapeze tailpiece.
