  CreamTone A3 Deluxe - "MGL Custom Spec" PAF Pickup Set
(Item#669) 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. Price listed is for exposed bobbins but nickel covers are available for $30.00 installed, light aging of pole pieces - $20.00. NOW ACCEPTING ORDERS

  Gibson 2014 Memphis Limited Edition Warren Haynes Cherry 1961 ES-335
(Item#661)(as new) 2014 Memphis made Limited Edition Warren Haynes VOS Cherry finish 1961 ES-335, lightweight at 7 lbs 14 ounces, neck shape taken from Warren's original guitar that is a little more rounded on the back than most '60's and measures: 1st fret - .837", fret - .888", really DARK rosewood fingerboard, long anchors and steel stoptail studs, Burstbucker 1&2 pickups that read: bridge - 7.96K, neck - 7.44K, The body shape and size on these guitars is the closest to an original Gibson has ever gooten on a reissue. I just did some measurements compared to my original 1959 ES335 and this is much closer than even the Nashville Historic reissues. Guitar plays and sounds great, very slinky feel, tone wise closer to an LP but with more note bloom, which is much like the originals that don't sound that much different than a Burst, many of the newer 335's sound more hollow body like than the originals. These are killer guitars and at a great price. Comes with special certificate and brown Gibson case. (I'll get some more pictures as soon as I have some sun. it just started to sprinkle as I took these pictures so sorry they are not better but I wanted to get the guitar listed.)

  Gibson 1955 Les Paul Standard Wraptail Goldtop
(Item#653) 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 but studs are original, 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)
