1968 Gibson Johnny Smith

Call
Check out this vibey 1968 Gibson Johnny Smith in its original Sunburst finish! This one was someone’s go-to player at some point, as evidenced by the playwear and patina, and we can’t blame them! The binding has that awesome smoked-out patina, and the dark Sunburst finish brings out the intense wood grain throughout the guitar. The entire piece resonates so well, and the sustain is fantastic.

The purfling around the guitar is simply stunning, as well as the headstock and fretboard inlays.

1936 Gibson Nick Lucas Special

Call
This iconic 1936 Gibson Nick Lucas in Sunburst is a fantastic example of Gibson’s first artist-endorsed model! It’s even the first artist-endorsed model across any brand.

1964 Gibson ES-355

Call
This 1964 Gibson ES-355 is gorgeous in its original Sunburst finish paired with gold hardware! Gibson replaced the sideways vibrola with a “Lyre” vibrola after 1962, and by 1964, the neck profile moved towards a comfortable rounded C shape. This guitar beautifully showcases both of these specs, and they feel and sound wonderful! We love the meaty sound of these balanced humbuckers. The former...

1965 Gibson ES-345 XII

Call
How cool is this original 1965 Gibson ES-345 XII in Sunburst with a factory installed large crown inlay on the headstock?! This is the first ES-345-XII we’ve seen, as they normally used ES-335 specs with the 12-string configuration. The original owner might’ve figured the bigger headstock needed larger ornamentation, and the large crown definitely stands out more than the standard sized crown...

1975 Gibson Les Paul Standard

Call
This 1975 Gibson Les Paul Standard in its original Sunburst finish may very well be the only Les Paul with full-sized humbuckers shipped that year! The 1970s was an interesting time for Gibson, with the Standard disappearing from catalogs from 1972-76. Most, if not all, Les Paul’s made during this time were labeled “Deluxe” with a waterslide decal on the back of the headstock, but the option for...

1966 Fender Stratocaster

1975 Gibson Les Paul Custom

Call
Check out the Brazilian Rosewood top on this original 1975 Gibson Les Paul Custom! At the time, Gibson was experimenting with Rosewood bodies with their “Crest” model and decided to release a very small batch of Rosewood-topped Les Pauls in 1975 and 1976. With just 36 shipped in 1975 and roughly 53 total, this particular example is definitely a rare breed! The 3-piece maple neck...

1963 Fender Stratocaster

Call
This 1963 Fender Stratocaster is just ridiculously cool in its original Blue Sparkle finish! This well preserved example shows thick blue sparkles complimented by some hints of green to give this gem an “aqua” appearance.

1965 Fender Stratocaster

Call
This 1965 Fender Stratocaster comes in its original and rare custom color, Teal Green Metallic! 1965 was the first year Fender offered this shade as a custom color option after it appeared on Ford and Lincoln vehicles in previous years.

1965 Gibson Firebird III

Call
Don’t let the patina fool you; this original 1965 Gibson Firebird III is not green – it’s aged Silver Mist Poly! This guitar was very clearly played in smokey bars or exposed to sunlight in some way, as the aging of the clear coat is shockingly consistent! You can still see traces of the silver showing through in some of the wear spots throughout the guitar. Even with the wear, this piece...
