  Gibson 1953 Les Paul Conversion
(Item#329)(consignment)(PRICE JUST REDUCED BY $1,000.00) 1953 Les Paul conversion, originally a '53 trapeze tailpiece goldtop, guitar was purchased from Gruhn Guitar by the customer who has consigned it with me and this is the storyline as written in the letter from Gruhn that comes with the guitar. Guitar was sent back to Gibson in the '60's with a broken neck, neck was replaced with what looks to be an early '60's neck with SG looking celluloid inlays and Brazilian board, neck was set to late '50's angle and there is a shim under the fingerboard, guitar was then refinished in a cherry sunburst, back was also finished in a cherry red and there is a silt sunburst pattern on the back, guitar was set up with an ABR-1 no wire bridge and new ES style trapeze tailpiece. a 1963 wiring harness was also installed along with reflector knobs. Once the current owner bought the guitar, he then sent it to Terry Mueller to have the P90 routes blocked and then routed for humbuckers, and also installed the inserts for a stop tailpiece. Guitar weighs 8 lbs 14 ounces, typical slim early '60's neck that measures: 1st fret - .797", 12th fret - .991", other than the harness, knobs and real nickel no-wire ABR-1 bridge, all other parts are reissue parts of some kind, pickups and rings are Historic, I think the pickups are '57 Classics and read: bridge - 7.8K, neck - 7.7K, guitar plays and sounds great! Comes with a reissue brown Lifton case and the letter from Gruhn.

  Gibson 2012 Custom Shop - Dave Johnson Makeover 1958 Les Paul Reissue
(Item#276) Dave Johnson 1958 black Les Paul Std.makeover, this guitar started as a 2012 R7 that I bought from Greg Germino and was sent to Dave Johnson, Dave stripped the finish on the guitar and found a flame maple top, but the flame was fairly straight so we decided not to do it as a burst so wanted to do something different. After thinking on it I decided to go with an all black '58 Std. and it's one of the coolest guitars we've done! Here's the work that was done: complete refinish with old style nitro lacquer w/ real finish checking and aging, top carve, reshape neck, soften the sharp edges of the headstock, vintage style truss rod, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with real celluloid aged inlays, rolled neck binding for a well played -in feel, original serial number stamped in control cavity and '58 serial number stamp on back of headstock, back of headstock tuner holes enlarged for Grovers but the front size is stock and would still accept Kluson bushings and tuners, Kluson tuners were installed first before the Grovers to be vintage correct in leaving the footprints of the Klusons in the finish. Dave also made a set of black plasitc back plates for the guitar. Guitar weighs 8 lbs 9 ounces, super comfortable and vintage accurate "C" shape neck that measures: 1st fret - .865", 12th fret - .975". Here's a parts list: CreamTone aged Grover nickel "Milk Bottle" reissue tuners, Vintage Haven "OTP" aged pickup rings, WCR "Godwood" pickup set with aged covers and pole pieces, Dave Johnson aged pickguard and black back plates, TruVintage parts - '50's wiring harness with vintage taper CTS pots and real '50's BumbleBee caps, ABR-1 thumbwheels & posts, rolled plastic truss rod cover, poker chip, black bonnet knobs, output jackplate. Original bridge, stoptail and studs were used and I aged them. Along with looking and playing great, this guitar sounds amazing and is a classic rock machine! Big, woody and full tone, bottom end has some good punch but stays tight and doesn't get muddy, GREAT mids that are fat and honky with a vocal like quality that makes for a killer bridge pickup lead tone, top end has just enough bite for good clarity but stays smooth. Guitar comes with original Gibson paperwork, certificate, Dave Johnson certificate and upgraded brown Custom Shop case. NOTE: THERE ARE 2 SETS OF PICTURES. WHEN YOU CLICK ON THE THUMBNAIL NEXT TO THE DESCRIPTION THE FIRST SET WILL COME UP. LOOK IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER AND THERE WILL BE "IMAGE" 1 & 2. CLICK ON 2 TO VIEW THE 2ND SET OF PICTURES.

  Gibson 2018 Custom Shop VOS Historic 1959 Les Paul Figured Top Reissue
(Item#331)(as new) Just got in my first 2018 Historic '59 reissue in VOS Dark Bourbon Fade, very rich burst color, guitar weighs 8 lbs 3 ounces. Being the first one I've had, these are my observations of this guitar that I've posted on the forums. All specs and parts look to be True Historic. Checked the pickguard spacing to be sure. As a Standard Historic guard will not fit a True Historic. The first thing I noticed right away pulling it out of the case is the neck shape and size. This is by far the most accurate neck size of any year reissue other than some of the signature and Collectors Choice models. Neck measurements are: 1st fret - .887", 12th fret - .967". The binding is slightly rolled but not as much as an aged guitar. The little lower True Historic style frets have a nice and broken-in feel and the guitar has a very easy and slinky feel. So much so that I checked the string gauge with my dial caliper to make sure they were 10-46, and they are. The Dark Bourbon Fade color is really nice and I like the fade around the bottom of the body with the stronger color only at the upper bout. They are no longer using a toner(amber) in the clear coats so the binding on the body and neck is the natural cream-bone plastic color. The Custom Buckers seem to be about the same and both measure right at 7.75K. Removed the control cavity plate and the electronics look to be the same. One thing I did notice is that the raw Mahogany color looks to be a little darker. The Fiji Mahogany over the last number of years has been very light in color. The faded color on the back of the body and neck look fine to me and from what I see in the control cavity, looks to be correct pore filler. In the past few years some of the backs look to bright red to me and I know that they were spraying a candy red in the clear over top of the color from the pore filler to make it darker. Dave Johnson pointed it out when stripping some of the guitars. The guitar is VOS but did not have much of the typical VOS gunk on it but was still just a little hazy and hiding the rich Bourbon color so I lightly wiped the haze off the top and then the color really came out. One last detail is that the reissue Lifton cases are now being sprayed with a clear over the outside to replicate how the originals were sprayed with lacquer. The pictures posted are not the best but have to do for now untril we get some sun here. The first pictures are just sitting on a desk in my office with low level light. The last 3 on hanging on the wall and taken with flash. Guitar comes with all paperwork, certificate and reissue Lifton case. (tone report soon but it sounds really nice!)
