  Fender 2008 Custom Shop 1951 Relic Nocaster
(Item#464)(consignment) 2008 Custom Shop Reic Nocaster. I'm selling this for the original owner who bought it new from Wildwood Guitars in 2008. He struggled with the huge neck that was almost 1" at the first fret, so after a number of years he sent it to Phil Jacoby of PhilTone Guitars who suggested reshaping the neck to a '56 soft "V" shape, which he did.

  Gibson 1999 Historic Collection - Vintage World Tom Murphy Painted and Aged 1959 Les Paul Reissue
(Item#462)(consignment) 1999 Tom Murphy painted & aged '59 reissue. This is an infamous guitar with a long story so I'll try to make it as abriviated as possible. The customer involved in the story is a friend and I had first hand knowledge of all that went on. In 1999 Ronn David, the owner of Vintage World, and Tom Murphy got together with Gibson to do an exclusive run of 40th Annv. aged '59 Les Pauls. These would be the first guitars that Murphy aged for Gibson. Ronn and Murphy also came to an agreement for Tom to paint the guitars. Once the guitars were sold Murphy would then send a letter to the buyer on his "Guitar Preservation" letterhead with the serial number and stating that it was painted by him exclusively for Vintage World. A local NH customer who had already bought some guitars from Ronn in the past bought one of the new aged '59's and was super excited about them. He then sent a number of buyers to Ronn who also purchased aged '59's and told Ronn that he'd continue to help sell the guitars. Ronn offered him a commisssion. But what he really wanted instead of money was to own the first guitar, 9 9001, which Ronn was using for advertizing and taking to guitar shows. So they came to an agreement that once Ronn was done using 9 9001, he would then sell it to this customer for his help. Well, sometime during the year Ronn either shopped the guitar or got an offer he couldn't receive from a guitar shop in Japan and in turn sold 9 9001 without anyone knowing and especially the customer he had made the deal with. During the rest of the year as regular non aged R9's were being produced, Ronn searched for a guitar with a maple top that could double for #1. He finally came up with one. He then sent it to Tom Murphy claiming that he was going to keep it. And had Tom refinish and age it to replicate #1. And then lastly had Tom replace it's late 1999 6 digit serial number with "9 9001". Without Tom Murphy's knowledge Ronn then told the customer that he had the agreement with that he was ready to sell #1 to him for his help in selling many of the guitars. So this customer then purchased the fake and replicated 9 9001. Soon after purchasing the guitar, information surfaced about the real #1 going to Japan and the shit hit the fan! In the end, the customer got taken care by Gibson and 2 special guitars were made for him with the agreement that he would send the fake #1 and all paperwork to Gibson and originally it was stated that the guitar would be destroyed. Well, a copy of the Murphy letter and original certificate were made and kept. Gibson decided to not destroy the guitar but instead found the original serial number and reapplied it to the guitar. They also made up a special certificate stating the the guitar once had the serial number 9 9001 without their knowledge on consent. So the guitar is now for sale with me and is a wonderful and gorgeous guitar! Guitar weighs 8 lbs 8 ounces and is still all stock with minimal playing time on it, nice feeling neck that's not real big for that era and measures: 1st fret - .887", 12th fret - 1.004", super dark Indian roseweood fingerboard, '57 Classic pickups that read: bridge - 7.75K, neck - 7.61K, guitar comes with the copies of the original paperwork seen at the end of my pictures, new certificate with original serial number and a brown reissue Lifton case. NOTE: I personally go over every guitar in my inventory, consignments included. Fingerboards are gone over with extra fine steel wool to clean and give them a smoother feel, frets are polished and then the board is treated with Fret Doctor oil. Basic set-up is gone over and pickups are adjusted while test playing. Pre-owned guitars get a fresh set of Ernie Ball 10-46 strings.

  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 Brazilian Hard Rock Maple 1959 Les Paul Reissue
(Item#521)(as new) NOS 2018 Brazilian '59 that was part of a run done for the Japanese dealers with all hand picked woods. Evidently the Japanese dealers were not able to get CITES paperwork clearance to have the guitars shipped and they have been in limbo. This one is in Double Dirty Lemon finish w/ a Hard Rock Maple (HRM) top and exposed zebra bobbin unpotted Custombuckers. Guitar weighs 8 lbs 14 ounces, great feeling "C" shape neck that measures: 1st fret - .876", 12th fret - .977", super dark and straight grain Brazilian board, Custombucker pickups both read 8K, aged nickel covers are also included in the case, another spec chosen to go with this burst color is a faded aniline cherry back and neck color. I got 2 guitars from this run and they are both outstanding sounding guitars, two of the best I've had this year!!! Super lively and responsive, warm and woody or mean and nasty just by changing how you play it. Big and punchy guitar with bottom end that's tight and focused, single low notes have a nice presence and clarity, mids are fat and clear with a vocal like singing tone for bridge pickup lead playing, top end has nice sparkle and bite without getting harsh, this guitar will pretty much cover whatever you want it to do. I know many think it's a bunch of bullshit, but there are great tone qualities that I've only heard in the Brazilian board guitars of the last few years. And my good customers know I don't sling the BS! Comes with all paperwork, Brazilian COA, box label and lacquered brown reissue Lifton case.
