1980 Gibson Les Paul Custom

$3,495
Here’s a fine specimen of a slightly polarizing guitar, the rode-hard-and-put-away-wet Norlin-era Gibson Les Paul Custom. Some clutch their pearls and pine for the late '50s or, alternatively, the early '90s, but to others, nothing screams "rock and roll" louder. 10.5 pounds, no breaks, Wine Red finish, "patent stamp" humbuckers, Gibson-branded Schaller keystone tuners, yellowed speed knobs,...

In classic high-end Martin style this 0-42 has a 1 % 3/4" nut width and a comfy modified v neck shape with black ebony fingerboard, snowflake inlays, and bound in grained ivoroid 3-layer binding, and pearl C.F....

1935 Gibson A-50

$1,595
F-hole mandolin, sunburst, VG+++, a really nice script-logo prewar Gibson with a carved Adirondack spruce tap and aged maple back and sides. Note the elevated Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard as found on 1935 models. Bound top and back, newer bridge (we can't fool you), set up well with fresh strings. No major issues except missing pickguard. Has the scrapes and dings every 85-year-old instrument...

1932 Gibson L-00

$6,500
Tuxedo Black, why are these pre-war Gibsons so sought after? First: tone. These were simple budget-priced guitars but made of woods that are simply not available anymore. It’s all about the wood baby. Then the black ones look fantastic but they are the first-ever of the now legendary L-00 acoustic guitars. The sunburst models came next. This one is in remarkable condition with a Brazilian...

1967 Gibson J-50

$3,795
Near-mint. We have seen a lot of Gibson J-50s over the last 35 years. This one rates as one of the cleanest ever, a real investment-grade guitar. This early '67 has a large neck for the time period topped with a Brazilian rosewood fretboard that shows nice reddish color and grain, the tuners are original nickel Klusons and function as they should. The back and sides are air-dried Honduran...

1966 Ampeg J-12D Jet

$599
1x12" combo in blue check vinyl covering, about 15 watts from a pair of 7591s, 2x6BK11 preamp, solid state rectifier (first year for that feature and the only year Ampeg called this model the "J-12D"), 12" Jensen C-12R loudspeaker, volume, tone, and tremolo controls. This one is all-original but the control panel has a fair amount of corrosion as you can see in the photos. Structurally and...

1974 Gibson Les Paul Custom

$6,500
Black Beauty. A really great player as it's been refetted (you're welcome), the finish is in great shape, and no breaks. Original pickups but new pots and switch. The original pots were placed on cardboard with the caps and remain in the case. Switch changed too. Knobs look like old repros. But as Willie has said for the last 2 years: Early '70s Gibsons are on the rise and it's still true. This...

1956 Martin Style 3 Mahogany

$1,595
Natural, soprano ukulele. From the original owner. A nice 85-year-old gentleman who bought it new loved it, played it constantly until a decade ago when it became hard for him to play anymore. You may covet them, play them but you don’t own them forever. So now it goes to its next keeper. Great sounding, but with obvious wear to the lacquer from playing. Eight layer top binding and even more...

1970 Taka 5 String Banjo

$999
5-string gold-plated banjo. A Gibson Mastertone copy made in Japan, hoop and plate flange (not cast), 20-hole tone ring, 13-layer laminate rim, and 2 coordinator rods all add up to a pretty cool find. Planetary tuners and clamshell tailpiece, note the pearl block at end of the fingerboard, very much a nod to Gibson. Comes in original hard case (in sad shape, missing hinges) but overall a...

1987 Martin HD-28P

$2,500
First year Martin used this designation for a low-profile neck, which turned out to be quite a popular feature. Scalloped braces, herringbone top purfling, zig-zag pattern backstripe, 1 & 11/16" nut width. The "P" designation was dropped 2 years later but the neck profile remained the same. Second year for the adjustable truss rod - Martins always had truss rods but were slow to adopt the...

1964 Gibson TGO

$1,095
Natural, all mahogany, sounds great, went through our shop for a bridge reglue and set up. At this point with Gibson, we might mention the headstock pitch and Brazilian fingerboard which it has. Then we mention this big pre-’65 neck (which it does not have). Now we’ll mention no cracks and a nice original brown case and again the tone. Do you play uke? Oh man. Last it’s stamped with a music store...
