Finally now available and priced to sell. These 2 guitars are 2 of about 10 or 11 made by Canadian Restoration guru Gord Miller and his friend and builder Adam Johnson at AMJ music. Adam studied luthery both is BC and Sweden and did the builds and Gord who is known for working with guys like Bryan Adams, Paul McCartney's band, Iggy Pop and the Stooges ... Paul Stanley and Kiss as well as Metalica, Did all of the Finish and amazing custom aging ... set up and final assembly. I waited for many years to convince him to build me one and what finally happened was a famous Les Paul player R+R star convinced Gord to make 1 batch. Important to know that these are not and will NEVER be in production and were done as favors for pals. THERE ARE 4 major factors that make these great. 1) Old Growth HONDURAS MAHOGANY (can't be done here) 2) Most important HIDE GLUE allowing for all the wood joints to be "married as one" and is NOT used in reissues because it is hard to work with. Gibson only uses it in neck joints at the custom shop. 3) Nitro and not Poly finish so the wood can continue to age and is just like an orig 1959. and Finally 4) Brazilian Rosewood finger board for the warmer response of the 1958-1960s! All combined making these sound ... play and look MUCH more like a real Burst, If you have ever played a Max guitar from the 80s or 90s these are of that same ilk!! Comes with unreal Sheptone PAFs that sound so much like the real deal. Best PAFs repro's ever!! Comes with Hard shell case. Price is firm. Zoom in and see Gord's amazing aging work and look how great it looks w/ a Bigsby! UPDATE. ONE LEFT. THE FADED ONE PICTURED ABOVE IS STILL AVAILABLE.. 7/2016 -
Pay Pal, Cash, Personal Check, Money Order/Cashier's check, Wire transfers or Western Union. Pay Pal and wire transfers are offered as a convenience for far away buyers and all extra expenses are the customer's responsibilty. Unless i price my guitars up with some of the really big dealers theres not enough profit in Vintage guitars to pay out 3.9% additional. If you need to pay with a credit card there is still a way though i don't take them directly .... and that is that Pay Pal will take the card and pay me through normal services. Any time that a deposit is taken for any special arrangements or "holds" it is non refundable. To have these rules work in your favor all transactions need to be completed or deposited on w/in 5 days.
Buyer pays shipping. Shipping will be determined on a case by case basis so as to include size, weight, distance, insured amount and method requested. Shipping is paid by customer both ways on any returns.
All parties buying through the mail or offsite are allowed a 48 hour approval/inspection period on ALL guitars, unless discussed otherwise, to make sure they are keeping their purchase (but not amps to keep shipping delicate amps back and forth to a minimum and not on parts either ... too many guys doing "switcharoo's" or wrecking them trying to install them, break them and then trying to send them back ... sorry ... you have to reap the behavior of so many others). Buyer pays shipping. Payments must be received within 5 working days of anything placed on HOLD. When you receive the guitar your 48 hour return includes 2 days to receive it and approve or not and you MUST contact me. WE DO STRICTLY adhere to these rules. I don't mean to sound tough here but you would be amazed at the liberties taken in recent past! Thanks for your understanding and adherence. If an instument is put on hold and any special arraingements have been made like a deposit and hold followed up by another payment that is considerd a sold instrument since it has been taken off of the market for other possible buyers. Its not fair to us to hold it off the market and then decide against it so make sure to ask ALL questions and we will be thrilled to give you an in hands description. The same poicy holds true if you have us change the guitar (like "set it up for left handed etc ...). If that kind of work is done thats on an instrument that is a done deal also. Thanks. ALL Outside the USA sales are FINAL due to extended "visits" through customs and some countries laxed attitude about shipping on time.
