Here we’re looking at a Gibson A Junior model mandolin in Sheraton brown – basically the only colour available for this model.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson LG-1 Ladder Braced Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 1953

❌SOLD❌  Gibson LG-1 Ladder Braced Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 1953

Here we’re looking at a lovely Gibson LG-1 Ladder built during 1953. Many of these guitars do not have serial numbers as such, rather they have a FON or Factory Order Number. On this guitar, the FON is Y6452 30, and the relevant character is the Y. This FON series started in 1952 with the letter Z, and counted back towards A, each year.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Studio Lite Cherry Burst, 1992

This Gibson Les Paul Studio Lite from 1992! Built between 1987 and 1998 at the Gibson Nashville plant, the Les Paul Studio Lite features classic Les Paul construction, but without binding, and with an ebony fingerboard. As its name implies, the Les Paul Studio Lite is weight relieved, and this example, dating to September 10th, 1992 sits on the scale at a svelte 7.8 pounds. It also has a 1960’s slim taper neck, quite a bit smaller than modern profiles. Hardware is gold plated, with coverless Gibson 490R and 490T pickups.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-359 Limited Edition Inverness Green, 2010

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-359 Limited Edition Inverness Green, 2010

The Gibson ES-359 is related to the ES-339 in the same way that the ES-355 relates to the ES-335 – in the most part, more complex binding, an Ebony fingerboard, and mother of pearl block position markers. Structurally, they use the same core design and construction.Like the other ES-3×5 and 3×9 models, the ES-359 uses a thinline body of Maple laminate with a Maple center block to suppress feedback. The neck is Mahogany, with a bound Ebony fingerboard. The body and head binding are more elaborate than the lower models, with multi-layer binding on the top (7 layer) and front of the head (5 layer), while the back gets 3-layer binding treatment.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SG Standard Natural Mahogany, 1977

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SG Standard Natural Mahogany,  1977

The Gibson SG Standard appeared, named as such, in 1963 though it had been available for two years as the radically redesigned Les Paul Standard. It has remained in production since then, with a number of variations- some subtle, others less so.Here we’re looking at a nice Gibson SG Standard built during 1977, likely at the Nashville Tennessee plant. This was during the Norlin era, and the back of the head features a ‘Volute’ typical of that time, added to help increase head strength.
