‼️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.

❌SOLD❌ Bluesman Nomad Doublecut TV Finish, 2016

Built by the Bluesman Vintage Guitars custom shop in Spring Hill – just south of Nashville – the Bluesman Nomad Double Cut recalls the iconic TV Yellow Les Paul Specials of the 1950s. The Bluesman Nomad construction concept is simple – a Mahogany slab body is paired with a Mahogany set neck, and a Rosewood fingerboard is installed. A single P-90 pickup is placed at the bridge, and a volume and tone control finish the electronics. Kluson Deluxe tuners round off the hardware. Originally, a simple stop-bar tailpiece was installed, but here a modern version with adjustable saddles is used.

❌SOLD❌Gibson SG Special Heritage Cherry, 2002

Differences between the Gibson SG Special and SG Standard don’t jump out at first. The main visual elements are the same – the same wood selection, shape, and gloss lacquer finish. However, the Special has an unbound fingerboard with dot markers, gold-decal Gibson logo and ‘SG’ engraved on the truss rod cover. The SG Standard has a bound fingerboard, trapezoidal markers, Mother of Pearl Gibson logo plus the ‘Holly’ inlay on the headstock. As well, the pickups are uncovered on the Special, while the Standard pickups have metal covers.

❌ Sold ❌ Gibson Les Paul Junior Special P-90 Sunburst, 1991

The Les Paul Special was originally produced from late 1954 to 1959, in a form very much like this Les Paul Junior Special. The slab body and neck are Mahogany, the bound fingerboard is Rosewood. For hardware, Kluson Deluxe style tuners were used, with a pair of P-90s. On the originals, a combination stop tailpiece/bridge was used but all the reissues have installed a tune-o-matic style bridge with stop tailpiece. Wiring is typical Gibson – a pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls.
