  TruVintage Exact Replica '50's Gibson ABR-1 Thumbwheels And Posts (NEW PRODUCT AND READY TO SHIP!!)
(Item#780) MGL is excited to announce a partnership with CreamTone in our new “TruVintage” line of parts. The parts will be available on my site and also the new site of truvintage.com which will launch soon. The first project we decided on and have been working on for the last few months are exact replica ‘50’s Gibson ABR-1 bridge thumbwheels and posts. There are a number of reissue thumbwheels on the market that are somewhat close but none are correct. One of the main reasons is that the exact knurling tool that was used for the original '50's thumbwheels is no longer in use. We had a machine shop take detailed measurements and inspect every detail on an original set of ‘50’s thumbwheels I sent them. After multiple attempts to duplicate the knurl pattern we were told the only way to get it exact would be to order a custom made knurling tool so we did. Once a small number of wheels were done and nickel plated we were sent some prototypes for approval. Everything looked dead on and we approved production. The thumbwheels and posts are available in 2 versions, NOS(new and shiny) & aged. (wheels & posts are nickel plated brass) (special thanks to Charlie Daughtry for providing detailed  thumbwheel photos from one of his Bursts for comparison) We sent a set to Charlie once they were done and his simple reply was "Damn....they are extraordinary!” (Shipping will be $5.25 for Priority 2nd Day Mail) (NOTE: Since 2009 the thumbwheels Gibson has been using are made from steel. Correct brass will have a warmer tone)
$40.00 (NOS) $45.00 (Aged)

  Marshall 1967 Plexi 100w Superlead (The Holy Grail EVH Head!!)
(Item#774) 1967 Plexi 100w Superlead head, the "Holy Grail" of 100w heads!! Probably most known for being the Eddie Van Halen amp. This head has been in my personal collection for the last 13 years. The amp was completely gone thru by Victor Mason at The Plexi Palace and then originally sold to Matt Bruck, Eddie Van Halen's tech. Matt decided that he needed to sell the amp and sent it back to Vic who then called me right away knowing that I had been looking for one. Vic shipped it to me on approval but said if I returned it, he would know I was crazy! As this was one of the best sounding 100w heads he had heard. Other than some normal maintenance, the only 2 things done were a bias trim pot added, and a central ground for low noise. You can see the central ground in the last picture where all of the ground wires from the amp come together in one place. It is set up like Eddie’s amp and has an NOS quad of American 6CA7 power tubes. Please call for more details. (head will ship in a road case that must be returned to the store)

  Gibson 2011 Custom Shop VOS 1958 Les Paul Stinger Reissue
(Item#766) 2011 VOS '58 Stinger that was originally slated to be a Don Felder '59 reissue, a small number of these guitar at the end of the run were not completed as Felder reissues so the black Stinger was painted over the Felder serial number and the guitars got R8 serial numbers, The "R9" stamp inside the control cavity was also sanded or ground away down to bare wood and then re stamped "R8". These are very cool guitars that are very similar to the "Burst Brothers" R8 Stingers. The Felders all got very vintage looking figured eastern maple tops and the "Felder Burst" finish. I had this guitar once before and added a bunch of aftermarket parts (worth over $600.00) which are still on the guitar and here are the details: Guitar weighs 8 lbs 15 ounces, pickups are a set of double white bobbin Handwound Zhangbucker "DuaneBuckers" mounted in Gil Yaron rings, Dave Johnson pickguard, Monster Relic burst knobs and poker chip, aged reissue Kluson tuners from RS Guitarworks, (All of the original parts are also included). The neck profile on these guitars is very vintage accurate and identical to the "Burst Brothers" guitars, measurements for this neck are: 1st fret - .890", 12th fret - .955", real dark rosewood fingerboard. Guitar is still in super clean condition with some very faint rivet worming on the back but you have to hold at just the right angle in bright light to see them. Great sounding guitar that's real big and fat sounding with plenty of punchy bottom end, mids are dense and real honky but also nice and clear, bridge pickup position is killer for lead playing and even the highest notes stay fat, top end has some sparkle and bite but not at all harsh, comes with all paperwork, certificate and black Gibson Custom case.
