  Gibson 2016 Custom Shop VOS 1959 Les Paul Reissue - MGL HotRod Series
(Item#735) A number of years ago I had the MGL HotRod Series which were guitars that I would customize with parts and pickups to fine tune them tonally & aesthestically, I would first listen to them stock and then choose pickups that would work best with the natural voice of the guitars, So I've decided to bring them back as I enjoy tweaking the guitars to get a little more out of them. Here's the 4th one that I just finished, 2016 VOS '59 reissue in Lemonburst finish with a great vintage looking maple top, guitar weighs 8 lbs 4 ounces, full "C" shape neck that measures: 1st fret - .908", 12th fret - 1.005", dark brown Indian rosewood fingerboard, Here's what I've added to this one: a set of Duncan Seth Lover pickups, zebra bridge pickup that reads 7.97K and a double white neck that reads 7.25K, pickups are mounted in a set of True Historic rings, True Historic truss rod cover, CreamTone pickguard, TruVintage poker chip, NOS amber bonnet knobs and aged ABR-1 thumbwheels, guitar is in super clean condition, back has some light worming or rivet marks here and there(hard to take a picture of), but nothing deep or thru the finish, lively, open and bright guitar, open chords really ring, the pickup change made a huge difference, the Burstbuckers were much more metallic and hard in the upper mids, The Seth Lovers sound much more vintage and smooth while still retaining the comes with hang tags, warranty paper, certificate and brown Custom Shop case.(original parts replaced are also included in the case)

  Gibson 2018 Custom Shop Tom Murphy Painted Brazilian 1959 Les Paul Reissue
(Item#684)(as new condition) 2018 Tom Murphy painted Brazilian '59 reissue. This guitar is from a run of 20 that were done for a Japanese dealer in 2018 and then sat at Gibson for over a year due to the Japanese dealers not being able to get the CITES approval for import into Japan, so in August of 2019 the guitars were offered to the top US dealers. This run of R9's had "Handpicked" woods, Tom Murphy painted including a more faded and very vintage accurate back color and Brazilian rosewood fingerboads. The burst finish on this guitar is Tom's "Weak Tea Burst" over a real vintage looking eastern maple top, guitar weighs 8 lbs 12 ounces, super comfortable "C" shape neck that measures: 1st fret - .870", 12th fret - .971", super dark and just about black Brazilian board, Custombucker pickups that read: bridge - 7.84K, neck - 7.77K, the control cavity and hang tag are both initialed by Tom. This is a killer looking, sounding and playing guitar! (detailed tone report coming). Guitar comes with hang tags, warranty paper, Murphy certificate and reissue Lifton case. I'm in no rush to sell this guitar and the price is firm. The asking price on a new Murphy Lab painted and aged R9 is 13-14K and IMO this guitar much more desireable and collectable.

  Gibson 2021 Custom Shop VOS 1959 Les Paul Reissue - MGL HotRod Series
(Item#717) A number of years ago I had the MGL HotRod Series which were guitars that I would customize with parts and pickups to fine tune them tonally & aesthestically, I would first listen to them stock and then choose pickups that would work best with the natural voice of the guitars, So I've decided to bring them back as I enjoy tweaking the guitars to get a little more out of them. Here's the 2nd one that I just finished, 2021 '59 reissue in Royal Teaburst VOS finish with a bookmatched curly maple top, guitar weighs 8 lbs 7 ounces, "C" shape neck with small shoulders and very comfortable to play, neck measurements: 1st fret - .889", 12th fret - .972", dark brown Indian rosewood fingerboard that has a very smooth feel to it. Here's the list of parts and work done on the guitar: First off I removed the nickel parts and aged some of them more so that they all had a better match(most of the time the stock VOS parts are a mix, some too shiny still and some more aged), I tried a few sets and combinations of pickups in this guitar and settled on a zebra bobbin Duncan '59 in the bridge that reads 8.26K and a double cream bobbin Seth Lover pickup in the neck that reads 7.43K, TruVintage aged amber bonnet knobs, replica poker chip, ABR-1 aged thumbwheels and more accurate aged aluminum tailpiece, set-up has been gone over and guitar is strung with Ernie Ball 10-46 strings. Real nice sounding guitar that's well balanced, very resonant and lively with an overall good presence, bottom end stays tight and focused, single notes on the low strings have good definition and clarity, mids are fat and clear with a cool nasal quack for a great bridge pickup lead tone, upper mids and top end have some sizzle and bite, middle and neck pickup positions are pretty open and not at all muddy. Guitar is in unplayed condition and comes with all paperwork, certificate and reissue Lifton case. (replaced original parts also included)

(Item#723)(LAYAWAY) A number of years ago I had the MGL HotRod Series which were guitars that I would customize with parts and pickups to fine tune them tonally & aesthestically, I would first listen to them stock and then choose pickups that would work best with the natural voice of the guitars, So I've decided to bring them back as I enjoy tweaking the guitars to get a little more out of them.
