  Gibson 2001 Custom Shop Dave Johnson - Historic Makeovers Peter Green - Gary Moore Burst Replica
(Item#797) This was a very special project that I did with Dave Johnson that was completed back in 2008 and it's been in the Frank Pine collection since. It is now back with me and is for sale. I bought this as a 2001 '58 figured top reissue specifically for this project. I had been waiting for a reissue with the right maple top. I got the guitar, pulled it apart, and off it went to Dave for the full makeover including complete body, top carve, neck and headstock re-shaping, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard w/ aged celluloid inlays and vintage style truss rod, complete refinish with vintage style nitro lacquer. Then many hours were spent on the aging process. transparencies were made from pictures of the original guitar that were then used to lay out all of the dings, dents, scratches and repairs in the correct spots, even the headstock break and repair was replicated. Guitar has the correct Greenburst serial number on the back of the headstock and the original Historic serial number is stamped inside the control cavity. Dave also aged many of the parts to look correct, I bought a set of vintage nickel Grover tuners for the guitar, also has a set of ThroBak Peter Green pickups that were wound for the guitar in 2009, it's been many years so I really can't recall what the rest of the plastic parts are, the harness is 500K CTS pots and some kind of BumbleBee caps, guitar has been played very little and has no wear other than the intended aging, frets are still perfect. Frank went all out and put together a replica display set-up just like Maverick Music was using for the original guitar when displayed at guitar shows. So an Anvil case and a board with copies of all of the pictures that were displayed with the guitar as seen in the last 2 pictures I've posted. Guitar comes with the original black Custom Shop case, paperwork and Historic Makeovers certificate as seen in picture along with the Anvil case and display set-up. NOTE: There are 2 sets of pictures, when you click on the thumbnail you will see "Image 1" & "Image 2". "Image 1" will load right away and then to see the 2nd set of pictures, click on "Image 2". Serious buyers feel free to call me to discuss in more detail if you'd like. (There are rumors of a new Murphy Lab run of Greenbursts in the works with an estimate price range of 30-50K. If true, that makes this guitar a deal)

  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#757) 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 7th one that I just finished, 2021 '59 reissue in VOS Slow Iced Tea Fade finish with a subtle eastern maple top that has a cool vintage vibe w/ nice grain and some minerla flecks, beautiful burst color that's rich and warm looking, nice cherry back color that goes nicely with the burst, guitar weighs 8 lbs 13 ounces, "C" shape neck with small shoulders that's super comfortable and a bit smaller than the current average necks at: 1st fret - .868", 12th fret - .954", nice and dark Indian rosewood fingerboard that has a smooth feel to it. Here's the list of parts and work done on the guitar: first most of the nickel parts were removed and aged more, I tried a few sets of pickups in this guitar and settled on a set of Duncan zebra bobbin '59's with Area59 aged nickel covers, I also removed and aged the pickup pole piece screws, aged Dave Johnson pickguard, TruVintage parts: aged amber bonnet knobs, replica poker chip, aged ABR-1 aged thumbwheels, aged aluminum tailpiece and cream jackplate, set-up has been gone over and guitar is strung with Ernie Ball 10-46 strings. Guitar plays and sounds really nice! Big, full and woody sounding guitar with plenty of bottom end that doesn't get muddy, mids are fat dense and honky for a great bridge pickup lead tone, top end has just enough bite without getting harsh, would make a great choice for blues, blues-rock and classic rock. Guitar is in new, unplayed condition, there are a few finish checks around the bridge pickup volume knob(must have good hard lacquer), comes with all paperwork, certificate and reissue Lifton case. (replaced original parts also included) NOTE: When I price these HotRod series guitars, I'm only adding my actual cost for the parts plus a few bucks to install them. The parts added would be much higher at retail cost.

  Gibson 2021 Custom Shop VOS 1959 Les Paul Reissue - MGL HotRod Series
(Item#742) 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 5th one that I just finished, 2021 '59 reissue in Royal Teaburst VOS finish with a old vibe eastern maple top with cool flecks and mineral streaks, guitar weighs 8 lbs 5 ounces, "C" shape neck with small shoulders and very comfortable to play, neck measurements: 1st fret - .889", 12th fret - .996", very dark Indian rosewood fingerboard that has a 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 Duncan Seth Lover w/ an aged cover I added in the bridge positioin that reads 7.96K and an exposed zebra bobbin Duncan '59 in the neck position that reads 7.36K, lightly aged Dave Johnson pickguard, 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. Great sounding guitar that has a real vintage voice, woody, resonant and lively, bottom end stays tight and focused, single notes on the low strings have good definition and presence, 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. This guitar plugged into a good Marshall type amp is instant classic rock machine, great early ZZ Top tones, just sat down to play it a little and really got sucked in for a good 20 minutes! Guitar is in new, unplayed condition and comes with all paperwork, certificate and reissue Lifton case. (replaced original parts also included)
