1991 Gibson Les Paul 40th Anniversary

$2,495
9.3 of 10 Condition (1 obvious scratch on back, some very light, superficial buckle rash, a couple of tiny superficial scratches on top) 40th Anniversary? Let's - hmmm. The Les Paul was introduced in 1952 plus 40 years = 1992. These were made in 1991. So 39th anniversary maybe? That's 1990 Gibson for ya. The historical inaccuracy aside, it's a very nice Les Paul with good sounding P-100's and...

~2014 Gibson Memphis Custom Shop ES-175 VOS

$3,795
Dead Mint Condition Now I've probably owned a dozen or so vintage ES 175s over the decades so I'm pretty familiar with them, but if you handed this guitar to me, I'd have to look twice to see whether it was a vintage ES-175 or a more modern one. It looks and feels like the real McCoy. I think a lot of this comes from the thinner Nitro finish, higher quality fretting process, rolled...

1990 Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion III

$2,695
9.5 of 10 Condition (small amount of plating wear, superficial scratches on pickguard, one scratch on back) It's called a Fusion so it's great for Fusion players. But make no mistake - it can rock out too. The shorter Les Paul-like scale length makes for a somewhat slinkier feel to it and allows for easier string bending than Gibson's full scale length archtops like the L-5. It has a...

~2006 JazzKat Bluesman

The Bluesman has just a bit more gain than the Jazz Kat or Tom Kat to suit the blues player who wants just a tad more hair on his sound. Small, lightweight and portable are key words here: 20 lbs. and 18" x 11" x 11" 1 – 10″ Speaker 2 Channels Channel 1 – Gain, Bass, Mid, Treble, 1/4″ Phone Plug Channel 2 – Gain, Bass,...

1969 Gibson ES-175

$3,795
9.0 of 10 Condition (light weather checking overall, a few tiny dings, a few small finish flakes on the edges, strap pin in heel) I don't get too many original owner guitars walking into the store these days, but here's one of them. It's in very clean condition and plays beautifully. The frets have recently been dressed so they are perfect. And the action is low and comfortable with a fat...

2006 Moll 17" Custom Classic

$8,495
Dead Mint Condition It's really a drag that Bill Moll isn't building guitars anymore. His guitars were played by some of the finest musicians to ever strap on a six-string including John Pizzarelli. Even though the pickup is top mounted (which will help subdue feedback) this magnificent beast has an acoustic resonance to die for great volume warmth, projection and detail. The X bracing imparts...

2008 Tom Ribbecke Private Practice Custom Archtop

$9,450
9.9 Condition (a couple of the tiniest nicks you ever saw on the back) Tom has cut his workload down a bit these days so you don't see nearly as many guitars coming out of his private practice. This is one he hand built himself in 2008 as a very custom order for a client with some special needs. He had a severe back injury which necessitated him having a guitar that was smaller, shallower...
