Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherry Sunburst, 1980

Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherry Sunburst, 1980

Here’s a Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherry Sunburst dating to October 17, 1980, sporting a Cherry Sunburst finish and a non-weight relieved, non-pancake body! The Les Paul model was introduced in 1952 as Gibson’s entry into the then-new soldibody ‘Spanish’ electric guitar field, where ‘Spanish’ refers to the way the guitar is held. Solidbody Hawaiian models had been available for some time, and Gibson had been producing electrified archtop guitars since the 1936 ES-150.

Gibson Explorer 76 Reissue Natural, 1998

Gibson Explorer 76 Reissue Natural, 1998

The Gibson Explorer 76 Reissue is a re-build of the Explorer version built between 1975 and 1982 with Mahogany replacing the ”Korina’ or African Limba wood used on the original Explorers from 1958, 1959 and 1963.  The Gibson Explorer is one of the most radical designs produced under the leadership of Ted McCarty, and when introduced was met with very little interest.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Les Paul TV Special, 1958

⚌Reduced‼  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.

⚌Reduced‼ Heritage H150 Custom Classic Goldtop, 2003

⚌Reduced‼ Heritage H150 Custom Classic Goldtop, 2003

The Heritage H150 is based on the classic Les Paul design, and built in the former Gibson plant in Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This tried and true design features a figured Maple cap on a Mahogany body, Mahogany for the neck and Indian Rosewood for the bound fingerboard. The dimensions and finishes also draw from the same source, and the tapered Heritage headstock is one of the few visual cues as to what these excellent guitars are.
