  • Here is a very rare and collectible 2003 Gibson Custom Shop Historic 56 Les Paul reissue, with a Brazilian rosewood fretboard. In 2003 Gibson built a number of Historics with Brazilian fretboards ... it goes without saying that very few of these were built lefthanded. I have only seen a handful of lefty Historics out there, this is the only lefty R6 that I have come across. This one-owner guitar was bought new from the (former and greatly missed) Music Machine in Washington state, known for speccing and picking the very best Historics. The guitar is in terrific condition, except for some light buckle rash on the back (nothing through the finish). Top looks brand new, the guitar plays beautifully. With original case and all the extra case candy these guitars came with back in 2003, but the COA is missing. I did, however, verify the serial number with Gibson. Great change to own a very rare Les Paul at not much more than a new R6 runs these days. Condition: Excellent; Body: Mahogany, carved maple top; Color: Gold top; Pickups: P90; Scale: 24.75

  • Here's a limited edition Tele Custom relic with a CuNiFe humbucker at the bridge, dark rosewood fretboard and a sweet faded aged chocolate 3-tone burst. A terrific Tele. Fender says: Developed by Seth Lover, who joined Fender in 1971, the “cunife” pickup features a two-coil humbucking design that uses 12 cunife screws connected on the bottom by a steel plate. Cunife is an alloy named for its three constituent metals—copper (Cu), nickel (Ni) and iron (Fe)—and in instrument pickups it produces a distinctive “hi fidelity” sound with rich bass and clear treble, and they never lose their attack or definition when pushed. We used samples of the original magnets to develop these pickups over a two-year period, and we’ve brought the material back exactly as it was 40 years ago. For this very special Limited Edition Cunife Tele Custom Relic, we took elements of the classic double-bound Telecaster Custom and added custom features including the classic cunife wide-range humbucker paired with a hand-wound Texas Special. The two-piece select alder body wears a Relic lacquer finish. The tinted quartersawn maple neck features a ’60-style oval-“C” back-shape and a flat-lam rosewood fingerboard with a 9.5” radius and 21 narrow tall frets. Hand-wound Texas Special (bridge) and wide-range cunife (neck) pickups feature three-way switching and Dual-Stack HS Tele wiring. Additional features include a three-ply mint green pickguard, ’58-’63 Tele bridge with RSD saddles for perfect intonation, vintage-style tuners, bone nut and wing string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity. Condition: New, relic; Body: Alder; Neck: Riftsawn maple, 60 Style Oval C profile (.790 - .930), 9.5 radius; Nut: 1.650; Color: faded aged chocolate 3 tone burst; Pickups: handwound Texas Special (bridge), wide range CuNiFe humbucker (neck); Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

  • Here's a limited edition Winter 2021 Custom Shop Thinline Tele relic in aged blue flower with a pearl pickguard and CuNiFe humbuckers. Terrific guitar. Fender sez: "1972 saw the introduction of a new Telecaster® Thinline model that took Fender’s venerable workhorse guitar into bold new territory in both sound and style. Most prominently, two big new high-output humbucking pickups designed by famed pickup maker Seth Lover were housed in a curvaceous new pickguard, below which was mounted a new six-saddle Stratocaster® bridge.

    The Limited Edition ’72 Tele® Thinline honors that year’s model, featuring a hollow two-piece select ash body with f-hole and Relic lacquer finish. The AA quartersawn flame maple neck has a ’60s-style “oval-C” profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 narrow tall 6105 frets.

    The pickups are wound to the original spec, with 12 adjustable “cunife” (copper-nickel-iron) magnets—just like the originals—for hum-canceling high output grit. Other features include three-way blade pickup switch, vintage Strat hardtail bridge, Schaller® “F” tuners, bone nut, and “wing” string trees. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity."

    Condition: Relic; Body: Ash; Neck: Quartersawn AA flame maple, AAA rosewood fingerboard, 60 Style Oval C profile (.850 – .920), 9.5 radius; Nut: 1.650; Color: aged blue floral; Pickups: Wide range CuNiFe humbuckers; Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

  • Here's a 2011 Collings 360 carved top offset with a gorgeous quilted maple top. The guitar is in excellent condition aside from a couple of chips on the edges of the top and light playwear you would expect on a 12 year old instrument. Great tone from the Lollar mini humbuckers, and some very nice upgrades on the original build, including parallelogram inlays, a flamed maple neck, TonePros bridge and tailpiece and, of course, that quilted top. With original hardshell case. Collings sez:
    "With an offset body style and Lollar mini humbucker pickups, the 360 is one of the most unique models in our electric line. Bridging the gap between our 290 and CL models, the 360 features a carved top and a slim front-to-back body thickness. This combined with the offset body contours make the 360 light and comfortable to play and give it a quick responding and resonant tonal character. The figured maple option allows us to offer some of our most vibrant finishes without the ivoroid binding present on other models."
    Serial #10135 Condition: Very good (see description); Body: Mahogany; Neck: Medium-fat C, rosewood fingerboard, 12 radius; Color: Caramel; Pickups: Lollar mini humbuckers; Scale: 24 7/8

  • Here’s a Gibson Custom Shop R8 1958 Les Paul plain top finished in a washed cherry VOS. The guitar has Custom Bucker Alnico III unpotted pickups, fat 58 C neck carve, hide glue fit top and fingerboard, CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers, paper-in-oil capacitors and historic Lifton style case with all case candy, certificate of authenticity booklet. Great guitar. Just under 8 3/4 pounds of Historic tone. Gibson sez: “The 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue features all the painstaking historic construction methods of the famous '59 Reissues with a few historically-accurate spec differences that allow it to stand on its own. Like the 1958 originals, it has narrow frets which help more of the fingerboard wood to be heard in the tone profile. It also has a round, chunky neck profile for a full feel and maximum bending leverage. And finally it has a beautiful plain maple top; each is unique and full of character.” Condition: VOS; Body: Mahogany; Color: Washed cherry VOS; Pickups: Custom Buckers; Scale: 24.75

  • In the fall of 1951, the Fender Telecaster was born. Inspired by new technology sweeping the nation, television “telecasts” were the wave of the future and, as history has proven most powerfully, Leo Fender’s new Telecaster was also part of that wave.

The Custom Shop presents an homage to the original Telecaster model that had such a dramatic effect on music and the electric guitar world. The Limited Edition 1951 Telecaster features a two-piece select ash body, a one-piece AA flame quartersawn maple neck with a 10/’56 “V” profile, and a 7.25”-9.5” vintage compound-radius fingerboard with 21 narrow tall (6105) frets for perfect feel and playability. The hand-wound ’50-’51 Blackguard pickups are connected to ’51 modified “Nocaster®” wiring (similar to the original, with blender pot and brighter rhythm setting in the neck position). Other features include a black phenolic pickguard, ’51-’54 Tele bridge with brass saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and disk string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
