Vintage Gibson Les Paul Junior (Jr!)

Vintage Gibson Les Paul Junior (Jr!)

Gibson debuted an entry level solid body guitar in 1954 and called it the Les Paul Junior! It featured a solid Mahogany body with no Maple cap and a flat top as opposed to the typical Les Paul domed top. A single P-90 pickup positioned next to the bridge allowed for long sustained notes along with the classic Gibson set neck design. Here's a look at how the model changed throughout the years:   1954-early 1958:   1958-1960:   1961-1969:Read more
Vintage Shaded top Martin guitars

Vintage Shaded top Martin guitars

The CF Martin company finished most of their guitars in a clear natural finish but some of them received the coveted shaded top (or sunburst) finish. Martin did far fewer sunburst guitars than Gibson back in the golden era of acoustic guitars but they were equally as beautiful. They're also far more coveted by collectors than their natural finished counterparts and therefore more susceptible to wild price fluctuations and hidden surprises. We are always looking to buy orignal shade top or sunburst vintage Martin acoustic guitars. Do you want to sell a vintage Martin guitar?…Read more

Vintage Fender Jazzmaster Guitars – 1960 and 1961

Vintage Fender Jazzmaster Guitars – 1960 and 1961

We're always looking to buy vintage Fender guitars, especially Jazzmasters. Contact me here if you're looking for where to sell a vintage Fender guitar such as a Jazzmaster, Jaguar, Stratocaster, Telecaster, and many more. Here are a few that we've had in the past! Fender's Jazzmaster model debuted in 1958 with a radical offset waist body and gold anodized pickguard. The new design was aesthetically pleasing but the innovations didn't stop there. The Jazzmaster also featured a brand new bridge design that in some ways resembled the arched top guitars that were popular for…Read more
Vintage Fender Jaguar Black with matching headstock

Vintage Fender Jaguar Black with matching headstock

This 1966 Fender Jaguar in rare custom color Black with matching headstock is my current shop favorite. I spent a little time dialing in the setup and enjoying the tone through a 1984 Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer and 1960 Gibson GA-5 amp. The tube screamer was for a little compression and a tone knob since the GA-5 doesn't have one.     Black was a rather rare color for Fender in the 1960s; so rare that they never made a decal in reverse colors so that the model name would show on the…Read more
c. 1945 Gibson J-45 Banner

c. 1945 Gibson J-45 Banner

We made it through the move and now we're back up and running. This dusty banner Gibson J-45 has just landed here at the shop. The banner era Gibson guitars (1942-1945) are regarded as some of the finest ever ever made for their fine construction, materials, and player friendly specifications. I purchased this guitar from the son of the original owner. He said that his dad played the guitar all his life but passed decades ago. It sat in a closet unplayed since that time. I can't wait to get this one up and…Read more

Enjoying every minute with this 1957 Gibson Les Paul Jr!

  This is another one that I'm so tempted to keep! This 1957 Gibson Les Paul Jr has just come out of retirement and is ready for another life in music. I'm amazed how these old gems were so well made back in 1957 that a simple cleaning and set up can bring them right back to being a coveted professional instrument. We're just waiting on some replacement tuners and a case to list it for sale. Enquire for details.   Do you have a vintage Gibson Les Paul Junior? We're always looking…Read more
Coming Soon: 1957 Gibson Les Paul Jr!

Coming Soon: 1957 Gibson Les Paul Jr!

This 1957 Gibson Les Paul Jr has just emerged from a storage unit in the north west US after decades of neglect. It's possible that the broken jack plate and bent G tuner were the only things that led to its neglect. Those are common problems with Les Pauls and easily remedied today. This guitar shows plenty of wear from being stored without a case for so long but retains all the necessary components for a well playing vintage guitar. The neck is dead straight, the original P-90 pickup is strong, and even…Read more

Video: 1940 Gibson L-00

This lovely 1940 Gibson L-00 has just recently landed in the shop and its our current favorite. It's true pleasure to play with proper action/saddle height/neck relief. We hope this clip can give a little hint at what it really sounds like in the room: loud/raw/loads of bass but articulate highs. It's ready for the studio, stage, or collection.    Read more

Chris came over to check out a couple guitars in the shop. The first one he chose was a 1971 Fender Jazzmaster in factory original custom color Black. He plugged it into a 1981 Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer then to a 1966 Fender Princeton Reverb-Amp. Nice playing Chris!Read more
