  CreamTone A3 Deluxe - "MGL Custom Spec" PAF Pickup Set
(Item#728) CreamTone A3 Deluxe "MGL Custom Spec" PAF pickup set. I've been working with Lonnie from CreamTone pickups on a set of "MGL" pickups for a while and couldn't me more happy with the tone of the prototype sets they have wound for me! The set will have A3 magnets with the bridge pickup in the 8.2 - 8.4K range and the neck pickup 7.6K - 7.8K, I've used a set of these pickups in a few of the Dave Johnson makeover guitars recently and they really have a great vintage tone. One of the guitars is now owned by Charlie Daughtry and he has nothing but great things to say about the pickups. Thes pickups rival any of the pickups being made right now and at a very fair price. Choice of bobbin color: double black, zebra or double whites. The A3 Deluxe pickups are scatterwound by hand and feature: butyrate bobbins, plain enamel wire, maple spacers, pure nickel silver long-leg baseplates.

  Gretsch 1964 Jet Firebird (the Malcom Young guitar)
(Item#727) 1964 Gretsch Jet Firebird in "Oriental Red" finish, guitar is all original and includes original case and strap. Here's the story on this guitar that I've had for 14 years. A regular customer of mine brought it in one day and said that he was helping to original family to sell it. It had been bought brand new by one of the sons who was later drafted and went to Vietnam. He was killed in the war and the family had been holding on to it but finially decided to sell it. Guitar plays and sounds great. This is the model that Malcom Young from AC/DC plays. The only 2 things I can find is that the bottom screw-in strap button is bent and the biding on the treble side of the neck is coming away up at the end of the fingerboard(simple fix with Super Glue).

  Gibson 2008 Nashville Historic Collection - Dave Johnson 1963 ES-335 Reissue
(Item#723)(consignment) 2008 Nashville built '63 block ES335 reissue that was originally Antique Natural finish when I sold it to a good customer. He then decided to send it to Dave Johnson and have refinished in Cherry Red. So complete refinish in old style nitro lacquer with no aging. Dave also made a set of block fingerboard inlays from real celluloid material. The only other thing added is a period correct ABR-1 bridge with nylon saddles(original bridge is also included). Here's the original description I had on my site when I sold it: "Nashville built Custom Shop Historic 1963 ES-335 reissue in Antique Natural finish($400.00 upcharge), 8 lbs 4 ounces, real nice neck that's a bit bigger than most '60's and measures: 1st fret - .842", 12th fret - .906", dark brown Madagascar rosewood fingerboard, '57 Classic pickups that read: bridge - 7.73K, neck - 7.7K, a set of reissue Kluson double ring tuners have been added, guitar is still in very clean condition with no rivet or belt wear. I've had this guitar once before and was happy to get it back. This is one of the best if not THE best sounding Historic 335 I've had!! Many of the reissue 335's sound too hollowbody like and not as full and Les Paul like as the originals. I have an original 1959 335 and it really sounds like a great Les Paul. This reissue is much the same. Real solid and focused in the bottom end, mids are killer which makes this a great guitar for playing leads, thick, woody and sweet with lots of honk, just enough sparkle in the top end for good clarity, you can cover a lot of ground with this guitar, jazz, blues and classic rock." Guitar comes with all paperwork, certificate, Dave Johnson hang tag and black Gibson Custom case.

  Gibson 2007 Custom Shop Dave Johnson - Historic Makeover 1959 Les Paul Reissue
(Item#720)(MGL's "Guitar of the Week") 2007 '59 reissue that was sent by the original owner to Historic Makeovers in 2008 when Dave Johnson was doing the work, at that time the owner did not want the truss rod and fingerboard replaced but everything else was done. A few months ago I bought the guitar and decided to add the finishing touch so I sent it back to Dave to replace the truss rod and install a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard w/ celluloid inlays. Dave didn't have any fingerboards so he did me a favor and made this fingerboard from 60 year old Brazilian that's almost black from his personal stash!! The serial number of this guitar is 971332 and I thought a more correct looking 5 digit number with the space would look better so I had Dave restamp the back of the headstock "9 7332" and stamp the full number inside the control cavity. 2007 is well known for having some of the best wood and tone from any of the reissue years and this guitar is more proof. Much of the mahogany used in 2007 had a more reddish brown color that was closer looking to what was used for the vintage guitars and seems to be a little more dense and harder. This is one of THE best sounding reissues I've had over the years and I've had thousands!! Here are the details on the guitar: The burst was sprayed with aniline dye to match and original burst that had faded to Ice Tea with a little red still showing, now 6 years later it has faded some and the lacquer has also ambered more. So the finish has an old ambered and warm look to it, guitar weighs 9 lbs 3 ounces (yeah I know some of you are thinking a touch heavy, well the tone will make you forget those few extra ounces in a hurry!!), reshaped "C" neck now measures: 1st fret - .869", 12th fret - 1.007", Parts on the guitar: Bare Knuckle "Mule" pickup set with aged covers, OTP pickup rings, newer set of aged single line reissue Kluson tuners, RetroSpec burst knobs, pickguard, poker chip and output jackplate, stock bridge, tailpiece and studs, stock pots and caps (none of the replaced stock parts are included). Tone wise this guitar has it all!! BIG, fat and woody but at the same time very focused with great definition, mids are thick and honky which makes for a killer bridge position lead tone, great pinched harmonics all over the neck, top end has some bite and sizzle but still smooth and not at all hard or harsh. Guitar comes with Gibson certificate, Historic Makeovers certificate, letter from Dave Johnson and reissue brown Lifton case. NOTE: I HAVE POSTED LARGE FORMAT PICTURES AND THERE ARE 3 SETS OF PICTURES TO VIEW, ONCE THE FIRST SET LOADS LOOK UP IN THE TOP LEFT CORNER AND YOU WILL SEE IMAGES 1-3 THAT YOU CAN CLICK ON.

  Gibson 1955 Les Paul Standard Wraptail Goldtop
(Item#718) This guitar was first for sale 4 months ago and I ended up buying it because it sucked me in and I just had to have it! Unfortunately I need to let it go, so someone is going to get an oustanding and very special guitar. 1955 Wraptail Les Paul Goldtop, guitar weighs 8 lbs 5 ounces, great feeling neck with a slight soft "V" and measures: 1st fret - .892", 12th fret - .979", P90 pickups read: bridge - 7.3K, neck - 7K. This is a killer sounding and playing guitar! Which is obvious because it's been played a good amount and shows typical wear but no breaks or repairs. After going over the entire guitar here are my findings: great refret with wider wire and the nibs were retained, no poker chip and by the lack of any shadow in the finish, it hasn't been there for a very long time, guitar had Grovers at one point but non-original early Klusons are now on it, non-original tailpiece in the pictures but the original is with the guitar, worn finish where your right arm rests has been oversprayed with a little lighter gold color, probably to cover bare wood showing, the rest of the finish on the guitar looks right correct, also looks good under a blacklight, pickups have been wax potted, lead from the switch to the output jack has some extra ground sleeve over it in the control cavity and the black plastic sleeve has been removed. Guitar comes with a 4-latch flat top Lifton case. (NOTE: There are over 30 pictures so it may take a little time for them to load) THE PRICE IS FIRM AND I'M NOT LOOKING FOR ANY TRADES.

  Gibson 1959-'60 Double White & Zebra PAF Pickup Set
(Item#716) 1959 - '60 Double white and zebra PAF pickup set with long magnets. These are a great sounding set of PAF's that I've had for 12-13 years and each pickup has one rewound bobbin by Lindy Fralin back when he still had the correct wire. On the double white the slug bobbin was rewound and on the zebra it was the adjustable screw bobbin. All parts on the pickups blacklight correctly other than the tape on the rewound bobbin on each pickup. The double white has the shorter lead for the bridge position and reads 8.15K, the zebra has a long lead to fit the neck position and reads 8.25K. I've had both of these pickups in a number of guitars over the years and they always sounded great! (No covers are included)
