❌SOLD❌Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst, 1959

Once in a while we come across significant instruments like this, almost entirely original, 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard in Sunburst.   Often regarded as one of the Grail treasures of the guitar world, this is an instrument that hardly needs introduction. This 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard was purchased new in 1960, and has had one owner until recently. Decades ago it suffered a headstock break, which was solidly repaired at the time. We have cleaned up the aesthetics of that repair.

Gibson Country Western Model Natural, 1957

Gibson Country Western Model Natural, 1957

The Gibson Country Western Model debuted in 1955 as a miracle of rebranding – it is the classic Gibson SJ-N, Southern Jumbo Natural, with a new label! The SJ-N appeared in 1942, became the Country Western in 1955,  was again renamed the SJ-N in 1960,  and  finally dubbed the SJ Country Western in 1962.   The model was discontinued in 1977. The Gibson Country Western model, like the SJ-N, pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck.

🚩SALE • Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

🚩SALE • Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

Originally released in 1958 the Flying V introduced a radical and futuristic body shape which became an iconic staple of rock and roll and heavy metal! The Gibson Flying V 2017 T pays tribute to design features that became common place through the 70’s while using alternate woods such as Grenadillo for the fretboard. The Gibson Flying V 2017 T uses a large double wing mahogany body attached to a slim taper mahogany neck, which is very fast playing with the ultimate access to the upper frets due to the body design. There is really no body mass getting in the way of your hand when reaching for the highest notes.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary Sunburst, 1974

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary Sunburst, 1974

Built during 1974 in Kalamazoo Michigan, this Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary sports a Sunburst finish and gold plated hardware. As a commemorative model, the 15th fret mother of pearl block position marker is engraved with ’20th Anniversary’. This Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary is in overall good but not entirely original condition. The nitrocellulose lacquer sunburst finish is in decent condition, as expected for a 47 year old guitar that’s been used as expected. There is wear to the finish along the edges of the fingerboard and on the neck where it’s rested on supports in the case.

⚌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.
