  CreamTone A3 Deluxe - "MGL Custom Spec" PAF Pickup Set
(Item#768) 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 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.

  Gibson 2010 Custom Shop "Burst Brothers" 1958 Les Paul Stinger Reissue
(Item#758)(as new condition) 2010 Gloss finish '58 Stinger, There were a small number of these guitars that were the last of the second run of "Burst Brothers" '59 reissues done for Guitar Center, when GC was no longer able to use the "Burst Brothers" name, a black stinger was painted over the back of the headstock on these guitars to cover the "B9 XXX" serial number, The "R9" inside the control cavity was also sanded off and restamped "R8".

  Gibson 2010 Custom Shop Limited Run "Burst Brothers" 1959 les Paul Reissue
(Item#752)(as new condition) 2010 Custom Shop "Burst Brothers" '59 reissue from a small run that was done for Guitar Center, the story is that Dave & Drew(The Burst Brothers) had Gibson take measurements from an original burst for this run and that they picked all of the maple tops for the guitars, special pickups were also used and are said to be the same as the Jimmy Page wind. I've had a few of these and like this one they were outstanding guitars! The burst color is called "Honey Tea Burst" and really adds a vintage vibe to the great looking eastern maple top on this guitar. Guitar weighs 8 lbs 13 ounces, the neck shape and size was taken from the original GC burst used and measures: 1st fret - .860", 12th fret - .954", med. brown rosewood fingerboard, custom wound pickups that read: bridge - 7.76K, neck - 7.75K, The back color of these guitars is darker than the regular R9's. There's definitely something different with these guitars over a regular R9 and in a positive way. The overall fit & finish and attention to detail seems to be a few notches higher. Stellar sounding and playing guitar, bottom end is full and punchy but also real focused, mids are clear, fat and honky, top end has some bite and presence but stays smooth. Guitar comes with all paperwork, certificate and black Gibson Custom Shop case.

(Item#709)(as new) 2014 Custom Shop 1963 Relic Telecaster - Modern Specs in Black finish, guitar weighs 7 lbs 6 ounces, Custom Shop specs: lightweight alder body, tinted and lightly figured '60's style oval "C" shape neck that measures: 1st fret - .836", 12th fret - .896", dark rosewood fingerboard, 9.5" radius and Dunlop 6105 frets, bone nut, vintage hardware, modern wiring w/ Custom Shop '63 Tele pickups that read: bridge - 6.34K, neck - 7.3K, 3-ply mint green pickguard. Good sounding Tele with more midrange than the sunburst one I also have, so it's a little darker and thicker but still has the traditional bite and twang. Chords are big and full and would cover any classic rock tunes. And with the modern wiring, turning the volume down a bit gets you a more open, brighter tone.
