1959_Gibson_Les_Paul_Standard_Burst.JPG
1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Burst7365 viewsThe 1959 Les Paul Standard is arguably the most legendary, quintessential electric guitar! Deep, rich, unfaded color. Excellent plus condition. This guitar was replicated by Gibson Custom as Collector's Choice #6. Great guitar with magic tone! My "desert island" Les Paul!
1958_Gibson_Les_Paul_Standard_Burst.JPG
1958 Gibson Les Paul Standard Burst5145 viewsFirst of three years of the "holy grail" of Les Pauls. This baby has been played, as evidenced by neck wear and back wear. Perfect Teaburst color! Plays and sounds great!
1960_Gibson_Les_Paul_Standard_Burst.JPG
1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard Burst4344 viewsThe third year of the triad of what defines the holy grail of Les Pauls! Very early 1960 with all '59 features (color, neck, tuners, etc.) Plus double whites! Near mint condition. Came back from Japan. Was in Mac Yasuda's collection at one time before fading from cherry sunburst to iced tea. You can still see some red around the knobs.
1934_Martin_0-17.JPG
1934 Martin 0-173931 viewsMy first guitar. Dad bought it from a co-worker for $10. The gentlemen bought it for $35 including a year's lessons during the Great Depression. We had the guitar appraised and told him that it was worth a lot more, but he wanted me to enjoy it and wouldn't accept more. Unbelievable tone and projection from this guitar!

1957 Gibson Les Paul Custom2774 viewsI love the sound of the Alnico neck pickup! This guitar is very playable, even with the low frets.

1952 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2663 viewsOriginal flatwounds were still on this guitar when I got it. My guess is that it was in someone's attic for many years. The initial "B" is affixed to the top. I didn't want to attempt to remove it and damage the finish. Plus, it is the first initial of my wife's name, so it works!
1958_Gibson_Les_Paul_Custom.JPG
1958 Gibson Les Paul Custom2612 viewsI turned the middle pickup. Seems to help thicken up the "out of phase" sound when the middle position on the selector switch is selected (middle and bridge pickup). Don't ask me why it works - it just does!
1952_Fender_Telecaster_Blackguard.JPG
1952 Fender Telecaster Blackguard2323 viewsEverything a blackguard Tele should be - playability, snap, and twang! Complete with thermometer case.
1957_Gibson_Les_Paul_Standard_Goldtop.JPG
1957 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2318 viewsThis guitar rocks! I have a photo of the original owner playing it in his band in the late 50's.
1959_Fender_Stratocaster_Slab_Board.JPG
1959 Fender Stratocaster Slab Board2213 viewsSounds like a vintage Strat should!
1956_Gibson_Les_Paul_Model_Goldtop.JPG
1956 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2197 viewsThe greening isn't as apparent when seeing the guitar in person, but it is fairly prominent when photographing the guitar!
1958_Fender_Telecaster_Blonde.JPG
1958 Fender Telecaster2099 viewsAnother Tele tone monster, this time with the classic white pickguard! Another time machine that's a pickin' and a grinnin'!
1954_Gibson_Les_Paul_Model_Goldtop.JPG
1954 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop2090 viewsAged to a golden brown. When blacklighting it I detected that the original owner must have had his initials on the upper bout of the guitar at one time (those stick on letters).
1983_Gibson_Les_Paul_One-Off_Quilt.JPG
1983 Gibson Les Paul One-Off2003 viewsOne piece quilt top. You can drown in the waves of quilt on this one.
1999_Gibson_Les_Paul_Historic_59_Reissue_40th_Anniversary.JPG
1999 Gibson Les Paul Historic 1959 Reissue 40th Anniversary2001 viewsI don't know why this guitar didn't get the "Killertop" designation that year. It has one of the most unique curly/quilt tops I've ever seen.
1953_Gibson_Les_Paul_Model_Goldtop.JPG
1953 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop1958 viewsWho said you can't play these trapeze tailpiece models? Obviously, no one told the original owner, because this baby has some mileage on it!
1980_Gibson_Les_Paul_Heritage_80_Standard_Cherry_Sunburst.JPG
1980 Gibson Les Paul Heritage 80 Standard1930 viewsThis Heritage Standard 80 has one of the curliest (and prettiest) tops that I've seen on this model. The photo doesn't do it justice.
1955_Gibson_Les_Paul_Model_Goldtop.JPG
1955 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop1904 viewsPurchased from Dave Rogers. Nice big neck. Plays and sounds great! Stoptails are awesome!
