Gibson Moderne Heritage Limited Edition, 1982

Gibson Moderne Heritage Limited Edition, 1982

Here’s one of the rarest of all Gibson guitars – the Gibson Moderne, designed and registered in 1958 but not put into production until 1982! The Gibson Moderne, however, existed only in design or a vanishingly small number of prototypes – which did in fact vanish. The Moderne was a thing of legend until 1982, with the introduction of the ‘Heritage’ series and the Gibson Moderne Heritage, built as the originals were, of Korina or African Limba (technically named Terminalia Superba).

Ernie Ball Music Man Luke II, Luke Blue, 2012

Ernie Ball Music Man Luke II, Luke Blue, 2012

Here we have a very clean, all original Ernie Ball Music Man Luke II in ‘Luke Blue’ finish – a light pearlescent blue, tending towards grey. This guitar dates to October 2, 2012 with a build code of 915 15 20 00 CS CR, and comes from the Ernie Ball Music Man shop in San Luis Obispo. Aside from its all round good looks, comfortable design, this is a very versatile guitar. It pairs an Alder body with a Maple neck and Indian Rosewood twelve inch radius fingerboard – and that’s it for the wood choices!

‼️Reduced‼️ G&L ASAT Solidbody Electric Sunburst, 2002

‼️Reduced‼️ G&L ASAT Solidbody Electric Sunburst, 2002

Taking very clear cues from the classic and proven 1950’s designs, the G&L ASAT looks like an ‘improved’ Telecaster. Notably, the ‘Hard Tail’ bridge addresses a number of vibration issues by adding a set screw to the treble side of the bridge housing. This set screw pushes against the saddles, so that once the saddles are properly adjusted, they lock in place. As well, the larger single coil ‘MFD’ or ‘Modified Field Design’ pickups are Leo’s design, combing ceramic under-coil magnets with soft iron adjustable magnets for each string.

‼️Reduced‼️ PRS DGT David Grissom Trem Honeyburst, 2013

‼️Reduced‼️ PRS DGT David Grissom Trem Honeyburst, 2013

The PRS DGT David Grissom Trem model starts with the basic McCarty design, but alters the neck shape, pickups, and control layout, adds higher frets, and carries a vintage style trem bridge. It uses the proven formula of a carved Maple cap on a mahogany body, mahogany neck, and rosewood fingerboard. This model was introduced in 2007. Here we’re looking at a PRS DGT model built during 2013 at the PRS shop in Stevensville, Maryland, with a lovely honey burst finish. This guitar is in overall good condition with a few small dings, minor fretwear and minor play wear.

‼️Reduced‼️ Hagstrom Swede Mahogany, 1973

‼️Reduced‼️ Hagstrom Swede Mahogany, 1973

Built from 1970 to 1982 at the Alvdalen, Sweden plant, the Hagstrom Swede was a major step for the Swedish builder and this Mahogany example illustrates how good these guitars were. Before evolving into the 1979 set-neck Super Swede, the Swede used a bolt-on design and did not have a zero fret. This example dates to 1973 and was 44th in its production batch.
