IN THE VERY RARE WHITE FINISH
BY THE CUSTOM SHOP
Every now and then we have a great and rare guitar come in and this is certainly one of those. This beautiful Gibson ES-345 in the very very rare white finish is just something you dont see very day. Photographed with it's two brothers you can see just how good they all look together. This 345 is basically the same as that played by both Chris Isaac and Kieth Richards, although this is a custom shop model, but not to be dismissed. All 3 of these Gibson guitars are quite unique in that they are all quite rare and not something you can find on a whim. The ES345 is such a cool guitar, it features a gold finish to it's hardware which has faded oh so nicely, it's also the stereo model and has the two output jacks. The fretboard is the very dark rosewood and has the split inlays made from mother of pearl. The white finish has (or is) just starting to turn from that bright white to that beautiful creme, it also has about 3 yellowish marks from where it rested on a guitar stand. The varitone switch is 6 position, and has two tone and two volume switches. It also has the Bigsby. Being in itself a rarer model you can truly appreciate this fine instrument as well as the other two hollowbodies that we have available on the website.
Overall I would consider this in EXC. condition and comes with it's cert. and it's original case.
This is the Gibson Nighthawk model in a vibrant sunburst finish. These guitars are quite light compared to your average Les Paul model. Being thinner and smaller they make ideal guitars for those who find heavy guitars to hard to use all night on stage. This model features the smaller Firebird style humbucker and a angled full size humbucker. The 5 way switch is reminiscent of the Fender style, but works real well. The body has the pointed cutaway and has a cool vintage look to the binding. Fretboard is rosewood and has split fret markers of mop. Tuners are a gold finish as is all the hardware and the back is a cherry finish. The flame on the top still looks great but has some slight wear which the pics dont seem to pic up. These guitars sound great and overall it's in VGC. Comes with it's Gibson hard case which has the pink lining. A great guitar.
BY CUSTOM SHOP
BEAUTIFUL EMERALD GREEN QUILT TOP.
Not often seen in Australia were these early custom shop guitars, especially something so nice and having the 'Jimmy Wallace' attachment brings it up a step.
Made by the Custom Shop in 1993 and having the stunning emerald green finish on a stunning one piece quilt top, makes this in itself quite rare. Also has the PAF pickups, a rosewood fretboard, mother of pearl inlays and a beautifully aged binding which has that great yellowish/creme tinge. of course the fretboard is fully bound, Gibson tuners, custom shop logo on the all black 'back.
Playing wise it just sounds great, you won't be disappointed their. Overall a stunning custom shop guitar with a nice bit of age. Comes with it's original case and is in exc+++ condition. Highly recommended.
Whether your a professional working musician or someone who loves great Gibson guitars this will suit.
Newly arrived is this great Thunderbird Bass by Orville, this model is the 'By Gibson' one with the 'G' serial, research says that the G serials were equipped with Gibson Electrics as in pickups, pot's and wiring etc. The body was made in Japan and as can be seen in the pics the standard of build of this bass is very high. The bass arrived without a case and as such had a small crack around the headstock, but not a break. We took this to our Luthier and he suggested that we fix this so that there would be no problems future wise. As such we'll warranty the bass against any headstock damage for 6 month's from the purchase date . The bass is now 100% and you dont need to worry about anything. We've ordered an aftermarket case which should arrive very soon. Overall the bass looks so cool and plays great, sound wise your not going to be disappointed at all. Has the rosewood fretboard, two great pickups, the larger tuners 2 x volume and 1 x tone selectors. Overall in VGC.
1974 / 75
This is the FENDER P BASS
from 1974 / 75.
This one we believe was originally sunburst but at some stage it was stripped to natural by it's previous owner.
Neck and pot dates it to 1974 whereas the serial is '75, The neck of course is rosewood and has the dot inlays and frets have plenty of life left in them. The headstock features the original tuners and has aged beautifully as can be seen in the pics. The pickguard is the multiply black and white and has new screws. Covers on the pickups are Fender but the pickup we believe is a 62 cloth wire re-issue which was replaced at some stage. The bridge is moved forward by about 10mm which with the adjustment of the harmonics doesn't really make any difference. Of course it still sounds great and plays/feels like a dream. Overall it's not heavy and it comes not with it's original case but another Fender case.In great condition. If this was totally original it would be priced around 6k here in Oz.
