1973 Gibson Byrdland Blonde
A gorgeous Blonde Byrdland. Flamed Maple back and sides, Solid Spruce Top, Venetian Cutaway, Rare Blonde Finish, Gold Hardware, NO Volute and Tortoiseshell pickguard. The guitar is in extra fine condition displaying very little play wear. The flame on this guitar is very attractive and really explodes in good light. The pickguard has typical crystallization but is intact. The wooden bridge base appears to be a possible replacement with original Gold patent number bridge in place. Dating this time period of Gibsons is a little difficult especially with the original canisters on the pots making pot dating unavailable. All specs are consistent with a 1972-1974 production date. There were only 74 Blonde Byrdlands shipped in this three year time period. Included is the clean original hardshell case. Priced well below a new Byrdland for this vintage beauty. OHSC $6000

1996 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Order Semi-Hollowbody
This is a very unique guitar that was Custom Ordered from Gibson. The body is a semi-hollow body with a carved out mahogany body with a center block running from the neck/body joint to the stop tailpiece, two piece maple top, 57 Classic Pickups, Gold Hardware, Grover Tuners, Tobacco Sunburst Finish with Dark Walnut Back and Sides, and Gibson Custom Shop Logo on the back of the headstock with inked on serial number.

A one owner guitar that was very well taken care of displaying only light play wear. The owner placed a DeArmond Rhythm Chief pickup on the guitar that required no modification. A great sounding guitar both acoustically and amplified. These Rhythm Chief pickup systems are among the most sought after and sell alone in excess of $1000. The original owner wrote his name and purchase date next to the orange label. No cracks, repairs, or issues. Included is the original semi soft case and Rhythm Chief cable. OSSC $5500
