⚌Reduced‼ Gibson S1 Solidbody Maple Natural, 1978

Here we’re looking at a Gibson S1 built in Nashville TN, with a date of April 19 1978. This guitar is built exclusively of Maple, used for the three-piece body, three-piece neck, and fingerboard. This example is in largely original condition, except for the bridge pickup. Some time ago, the original single coil was removed, put in the case, and replaced with what looks like a Duncan Hot Rails.

❌SOLD❌   Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1959

The Gibson Les Paul Junior was introduced in 1954 as a single cutaway slab bodied design, essentially a Les Paul without the carved Maple (or Mahogany, in the case of the Custom) cap. Intended as an entry level model, it carried a single P-90 pickup and very little decoration.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul TV Special, 1958

❌SOLD❌   Gibson Les Paul TV Special, 1958

The Gibson  Les Paul TV Special was introduced in 1955 as a midway point between the also newly introduced Les Paul Junior and the Les Paul itself. Like the Junior, the Special used Honduran Mahogany for the body – no carved Maple cap like the Les Paul – and the neck, and Rosewood for the fingerboard. The Special, however, had two P-90 pickups and a bound fingerboard; at the time, ‘Rosewood’ meant Brazilian Rosewood.

Part of the Standard Series built from 2009 to 2018, the Fender Jazz Bass LH Standard was built in Ensenada, Mexico and is an excellent mid-range bass. Leo Fender introduced the Jazz Bass in the summer of 1960, aiming it directly at those bassists who had not yet shifted to electric.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cut Reissue, 2007

❌SOLD❌ Gibson 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cut Reissue, 2007

The Gibson 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cut Reissue is a great take on a classic, straight ahead solidbody that delivers plenty of tone via a pair of P-90 pickups. Often referred to as the ‘Les Paul DC’, the Les Paul Special first appeared in 1955 along with the Les Paul Junior, both as lower cost alternatives to the carved-top Les Paul model. Aside from lacking the carved Maple cap and simpler hardware, the Special and Junior construction was similar to the carved-top Les Paul.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black Refinish, 1977

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black Refinish, 1977

The Fender Stratocaster HardTail was available alongside the revolutionary and better known 1954 tremolo-equipped version, and only discontinued around 2010, due to declining sales. Many country and rhythm players preferred the Fender Stratocaster HardTail for perceived increases in ‘snap’, sustain and tonal separation, and a slightly ‘drier’ sound than comes from the lack of trem springs. While many players block or otherwise disable the Trem, hard tail Strats never sold like the trem versions have.
