❌SOLD❌ Gibson SJ200 Jumbo Steel String Sunburst, 1951

❌SOLD❌  Gibson SJ200 Jumbo Steel String Sunburst, 1951

Introduced in 1938 and in constant production since then, the Gibson SJ200 is one of the largest and most recognisable steel string models. Here we’re looking at a very nicely preserved Gibson SJ200 dating to 1951 and built at the Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It is in overall rather good condition with some wear, but less than we often see on guitars approaching the 70 year old mark.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES135 Cutaway Thinline Archtop Sunburst, 1996

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES135 Cutaway Thinline Archtop Sunburst, 1996

The single cutaway, thinline Gibson ES135, built from 1991 to 2004 started out as a quite different guitar – the 1954 ES-130 non-cutaway archtop electric, renamed the ES-135 in 1956 and discontinued in 1958.  For 1991, Gibson blended the ES-334 concept with the ES-175 body shape and added a pair of P-90 or humbucking pickups  and either a trapeze or stop tailpiece.  The model was discontinued in 2004. The Gibson ES135 shares many construction features with other ES (Electric Spanish) thinline models.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Custom CS356 Thinline Faded Cherry, 2008

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Custom CS356 Thinline Faded Cherry, 2008

The Gibson Custom CS356 was the top level version of the Gibson Custom CS336, and was built from 2002 to 2008. Like the CS-336, it was based on a carved Solid Figured Maple top on a chambered single-piece block of Mahogany, routed out to provide the sides, back, center block and tone chambers. Based on its 5-digit serial number with an 8 as its first digit, this example dates to 2008 and as such would be one of the last built.  It has very little wear,  and is in great condition with only a few minor bumps.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Amber Burst, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Amber Burst, 2005

Originally produced for only the years 1958 to 1960, the Gibson Les Paul Standard overcame its lack of commercial success and became one of the influential guitars ever. The Les Paul Standard appeared in 1958 as a ‘new’ version of the Les Paul model and carried Gibson’s new hum-bucking pickups designed by Seth Lover, and was adorned with a sunburst finish showing off what was normally a nicely figured Maple cap.

Gibson Custom Le Grande Archtop Electric Natural, 2008

Gibson Custom Le Grande Archtop Electric Natural, 2008

Here is a rare beauty – a Gibson Custom Le Grande archtop electric model from 2008, the successor to the classic Johnny Smith model built from 1961 to 1989. The Le Grande made its debut in 1993 and while it hasn’t appeared on Gibson’s website or catalog since around 2010, is still available on special order. The ‘stock’ finish is a Vintage Sunburst, with the Natural finish seen here as an extra-cost option. Always intended for the serious professional guitarist and never in mass production, the Gibson Custom Le Grande features a 17 inch wide body with carved, solid Sitka Spruce top, carved solid and highly figured Maple back and figured maple sides.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Flying V 67 Reissue Tobacco Burst, 1990

Built from 1990 into 2014, the Gibson Flying V 67 Reissue had several names as it turned into a regular production model. All of these followed the same construction and design, using a solid Mahogany body and neck with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard, a pair of humbucking pickups and a stop tail piece – ABR bridge combination.
