2014 Custom Shop Gibson Les Paul 1960 Reissue AGED! $3799.99 Here’s an awesome Custom Shop Les Paul 1960 reissue aged in house by us. Not over the top. Not cheesy. Not belt sanded like the other “relic” jobs you see out there, this one has a great vibe with subtle touches that really set it apart. We started with a great guitar. This is the full monty 1960 R0 reissue and not the cheaper G0 reissues you could get at the local super stores. It also has the new 20th anniversary specs including hot hide glue construction and analine dye. The non weight relived body is one piece mahogany for incredible sustain. The slightly flamed maple top features the authentic 50’s contour. The one piece mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with correct shape trapezoid fingerboard inlays. Thinner but not mega thin 60s neck. Nice figure and color on the board and inlays. Alnico 3 CustomBucker humbucking pickups deliver killer PAF tone. Long neck tenon. Stopbar Tailpiece, ABR-1 Tuneomatic bridge and Kluson tuners keep it rock solid. The nitro lacquer dark burst finish looks awesome. We have done a light to medium aging on the finish. The top was resprayed in nitro lacquer. The plastic and chrome hardware have been aged as well. Nothing too wild. It looks like a nearly 60 year old guitar that has been used but cherished over the years. Click Here for more info.


1994 Gibson ES-335 Dot Reissue! $2199.99 Looking for versatility? It’s hard to beat a 335. The warmth of a hollowbody with the sustain of a solid body.

2015 Gibson Limited Run Non Reverse Firebird! $1199.99 Here's an incredible Firebird with an awesome finish! From a limited run, these non reverse Firebirds are fairly uncommon. I believe they were initially intended for export only to Japan but a few have popped up for sale stateside. The specs are classic Gibson. The body is mahogany for big tone. The one piece mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. A duo of Gibson mini humbuckers deliver big vintage tone. A Tuneomatic bridge, Stopbar tailpiece and Grover tuners round out the hardware. The finish is Pelham Blue lacquer and is contrasted by a white pickguard. An incredible guitar in terms of looks and performance! Click Here for more info.

 


1986 Squier by Fender Japan Stratocaster! $399.99 Great Japanese made quality and attention to detail! These early Squier Strats are well known for their workmanship and great tone. The body is basswood I believe but could be alder. The 25.5 inch scale maple neck features a maple fingerboard with dot inlays. A trio of single coil pickups are hooked to a traditional 5 way switch. Sealed Gotoh tuners and a vintage style trem keep it rock solid. The finish is classic white for a cool Hendrix vibe. A really great guitar for the bucks! Click Here for more info.
