1960 Gibson Bonnet Knobs

$300
You're viewing an original set of black silver foil reflector knobs for a 1960 Gibson Les Paul SG Standard and other guitars of the era (though I've only seen them on the earliest SG's). They are in very nice shape with the writing partially intact. As you can see from the photo, these are very early and the shaft barely extends beyond the numbered skirt, just like 50's bonnet knobs. Sometime in...

1959 Gibson Bonnet Knobs

$500
You're viewing an original set of Gibson gold 'bonnet' knobs made between 1956 through early 1960 as used on Gibson Les Paul standards and other Gibsons of the era. They're in excellent condition and have a deep amber tone to them. They'd look amazing on your Historic, conversion, or maybe even your original burst or goldtop!

1957 Gibson M-69 Pickup Surround

1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard

$275,000
Here's a great little burst at a bargain price! It's the 2nd burst I've ever owned, and I was thrilled to buy it back after 25 years of deep storage in someone's collection. It was featured on the cover of Mac Yasuda's "The Vintage Guitar" Volume 2 in the early 1990's. Though not a perfectly book-matched top, both sides are really flamey and deep, this coupled with the nearly un-faded cherry...

1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard

$250,000
For those of you looking for a great 'entry-level' burst, I present to you, in full living color 'Cindy' (as in Cindy Crawford). She gets her name from the 'beauty mark' mineral streak by the bridge pickup, which is also the most likely reason for the factory 2nd stamp above the serial number, but let me tell you people, there is nothing second quality about this burst! It's a lightweight 8.8...

1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard

$425,000
Before you ask, the answer is NO...this is not a one-piece top! For many years, this guitar affectionately known as 'Ralphie' was thought by some to have a one-piece top, but I assure you it doesn't. The flame is well-matched, with total coverage and moderate depth. The color has faded to a pale cherry-burst bordering on 'Iced Tea', but very pretty nonetheless. The overall condition is about an...

1958 Gibson Les Paul Standard

$350,000
Original 1958 Gibson Les Paul Standard, pretty sunburst finish faded to a pale cherry-burst over a mild-moderately figured top with good depth. The overall condition is pretty good, showing signs of honest playing wear, dings, and checking. It's been re-fretted with wire that is slightly larger than original, but smaller than '59 wire. There's lots of height left on the wire so it plays nice and...

1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard

$999,999.99
Here it is in all its glory, Ace Frehley's original 1959 Gibson Les Paul sunburst. Besides the fact it was owned by someone whom many consider a Rock-N-Roll icon, it's also perhaps the baddest original '59 burst on the planet! The flame on this bad-boy can best be described as 'Brutal'...it's as deep as any piece of maple can get, and it dances around in the light like a friggin' kaleidoscope!...

1954 Fender® Stratocaster® Knobs

$3,000
You're viewing an original set of 'Bakelite' knobs for Fender Stratocasters made between 1954 through early 1957. They're in amazing condition, showing some typical oxidation to the gold lettering & numbers, but otherwise mint. I can't even begin to tell you how rare these are, especially in this condition; the photos do these no justice at all. So if you've got a clean early Strat with worn or...

1958 Gibson Les Paul Standard

Call
Does anyone out there know the whereabouts of this beautiful & unusually flamey '58 burst? Please message me if you do. It's serial # 8 5394 and it was stolen from Billy Squier in 1986...he's been looking for it ever since. I know Billy; he's a really nice guy who didn't deserve to have 'his baby' stolen from him. He won't press criminal charges and he'd be willing to buy the guitar back at...

How does one get so many bursts...Luck? No way!!! I pay more than ANYBODY that's how! This is not an invitation for free appraisals, give me a call if you're serious about moving one.
