  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.

  Friedman 2018 Smallbox 50 Head
(Item#495)(as new condition) 2018 Friedman Smallbox 50 head, new in the box, bought by a good customer and played a few times before deciding it was too loud for at home use. Ships in original box with footswitch and paperwork. The Friedman description: "The Smallbox is a 50 Watt Amp that features 2 channels with a separate Gain and Volume controls each. The amp has a shared EQ and FX loop. The 2 Channels are foot swichable. The First channel is voiced like the Classic Plexi amps of British fame. It cleans up very nicely with the guitar volume. With the guitar volume you can go from cleanish to crunch to that famous Plexi like growl. The second Channel has that famous Friedman higher gain distortion and crunch that we all love. This is a lot of amp in a 50 Watt package. The SmallBox takes pedals very well and loves boosts, OD’s, phasers, flangers, tremolos, wahs, etc. The Smallbox also has ultra transparent Series FX loop that takes time based FX pedals and rack units equally well."

  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.

  TruVintage Replica 1959 - '60 Cream Rhythm/Treble Ring
(Item#458) NEW RELEASE!! Another project between MGL and Lonnie at CreamTone, and USA made right in the CreamTone shop. Vintage accurate cream 1959 - '60 Rhythm/Treble ring, most of the current aftermarket poker chips have the lettering ink laid directly to the flat surface which is not accurate and allows the ink to rub off easily. The letters on the originals were embossed into the plastic and then filled with gold ink, these new lightly aged TruVintage rings are done the same way and finished by hand. Nice upgrade to any reissue LP. USPS Priority Mail $7.90 or I can wrap it in a piece of paper and mail it in a regular envelope for the price of a stamp. BUT, I won't be liable for loss if you choose that cheaper method.

  TruVintage Exact Replica '50's Gibson ABR-1 Thumbwheels And Posts
(Item#454) (JUST GOT IN A NEW BATCH!!)(THE NEW 2019 REISSUES ARE GREAT AND HAVE THE MOST ACCURATE APPOINTMENTS, BUT UNFORTUNATELY THEY ARE STILL USING THE CRAPPY STEEL THUMBWHEELS!)There are a number of reissue thumbwheels on the market that are somewhat close but none are correct. One of the main reasons is that the exact knurling tool that was used for the original '50's thumbwheels is no longer in use. We had a machine shop take detailed measurements and inspect every detail on an original set of ‘50’s thumbwheels I sent them. After multiple attempts to duplicate the knurl pattern we were told the only way to get it exact would be to order a custom made knurling tool so we did. Once a small number of wheels were done and nickel plated we were sent some prototypes for approval. Everything looked dead on and we approved production. The thumbwheels and posts are available in 2 versions, NOS(new and shiny) & aged. (wheels & posts are nickel plated brass) (special thanks to Charlie Daughtry for providing detailed  thumbwheel photos from one of his Bursts for comparison) We sent a set to Charlie once they were done and his simple reply was "Damn....they are extraordinary!” Made in the USA as are all TruVintage parts. (Shipping will be $7.90 for Priority 2nd Day Mail) (NOTE: Since 2009 the thumbwheels Gibson has been using are made from steel. Correct brass will have a warmer tone)
$40.00 (NOS) $45.00 (Aged)
