The only thing better than a six-string made by Gibson is a guitar from their custom line up.
Re-designs of the classics, the guitars in this section are Gibson's cream of the crop, and their specifications and looks mirror the models they created back in the '50s, '60s and '70s.
1920's, when Gibson's Lloyd Loar designed the first f-hole guitar, his Master Model L5.
This invention had a major impact in the look and sound of guitar/mandolin manufacture because up until this time, the tops of guitars had only a large sound-hole.
Clean cosmetic condition displaying some typical finish checking. A nice clean Byrdland displaying limited play wear.
Original five ply pickguard included but original celluloid underside plastic supports have started to deteriorate. The flame on this guitar is very attractive and really dances in the light.
At the time, I understood the ES125 was vintage, but had no idea that it was just a regular Gibson student model. Rich, ESP, Jackson, Dean, and Ibanez which were played by my favorite bands such as Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth and Testament.
OHSC A very cool and Rare Trini Lopez in Rare Sparkling Burgundy Finish.The most amazing fact about Gibson is that they were first to market with the very first electric guitar, the 1936 ES150 (although many sources state that the first ES150's were shipped starting in 1937).Many manufacturers at the time had been working on the idea (the concept of electrifying a guitar had been around since the 1920's) and Rickenbacker marketed the early 1930's 'frying pan' lapsteel; but Gibson was the winner for marketing the first electric guitars.Gibson can make your dream of owning a vintage-inspired guitar a reality with their stellar line-up of custom guitars, and this catalogue has plenty to choose from. The choice is yours, but the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue is a winner in more ways than one.
The '59 Burst is considered one of the most sought-after Gibson guitars; in fact, only 635 of them were shipped that year!
If you're looking for a real workhorse, the Gibson J-45 Custom Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a solid option.
