❌SOLD❌ Godin Multiac Grand Concert Satin Gloss, 2002

The Godin Multiac Grand Concert has become a very successful and immensely practical instrument, and is based directly on the Gibson Chet Atkins CE Classical Electric from 1981.
By the early 1980s, Chet Atkins had shifted largely to playing nylon string guitars, but the instruments available at the time were strictly acoustic and not really suited to the realities of touring, and amplified or broadcast stages. On Atkin’s request, Gibson produced two models of a solidbody nylon string guitar, using Mahogany for the neck and a slab body, adding a Spruce top.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Batwing SG Standard, Cherry 2005

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Batwing SG Standard, Cherry 2005

The Gibson Batwing SG made its debut in 1966, with an extended pickguard covering the top above, between and below the strings, and also supporting the pickups. These were produced until 1971, at which point the SG Deluxe replaced it. The SG has been used by many players over the years, and the Gibson Batwing SG is very frequently seen in the hands of the great Angus Young of AC/DC. The large ‘batwing’ pickguard is well suited to an active playing style. It offers significant protection to the finish. And, incidentally, much easier pickup and electronic maintenance. That can be a real bonus for a touring musician!

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SG Standard Tribute Walnut 2019

The Gibson SG Standard first appeared in 1961 as a radical update to the Les Paul model, and bore the Les Paul name until 1963. This change had two drivers – one, Les Paul himself was not overly fond of the design, and his endorsement association with Gibson was coming to an end, partly due to complications with his divorce from Mary Ford. With the change in name, the Les Paul models disappeared from production until 1968, its resurgence sparked by the combination of that guitar and Marshall stacks as used by British blues-influenced players.

❌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 SG Standard Natural Mahogany,  1977

The Gibson SG Standard appeared, named as such, in 1963 though it had been available for two years as the radically redesigned Les Paul Standard. It has remained in production since then, with a number of variations- some subtle, others less so.Here we’re looking at a nice Gibson SG Standard built during 1977, likely at the Nashville Tennessee plant. This was during the Norlin era, and the back of the head features a ‘Volute’ typical of that time, added to help increase head strength.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SG Standard 'Les Paul 100' Cherry Red, 2015

Construction of the 2015 Gibson SG Standard followed the traditional line – a solid Mahogany body, Mahogany neck and bound Rosewood fingerboard. The hardware was upgraded to the new tuners and zero fret nut, but many also shipped with a set of standard Grover Roto-Matic tuners, or a set was available, should the purchaser not want the G-Force tuners.
