It's all in the details isn't it? Back in Salem in the witchcraft trials, they would press people for details. You don't have to press me, I'll give it up no problem. Here we have a 1995 Gibson Les Paul Custom. This is a cool Les Paul. I like it a lot. It has the original Wine Red finish, gold hardware, two original Gibson humbucking pickups (490R & 498T) and original Grover tuners. There is considerable wear on the gold hardware. The back has lots of surface scratches, the top not as many. There are various nicks and dings. It weighs 9 lbs 12 oz. It features a one piece mahogany neck with and one piece mahogany body and two piece maple top. It plays great and sounds great. A great player's guitar. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
Upgraded with what Dana Bourgeois called "Rare and Ultra Uber Figured Mahogany"
The Banjo Killer is a slope shouldered dreadnought with a premium bearclaw Sitka spruce top and figured mahogany back and sides. The guitar is modeled after Bryan Sutton’s famous Bourgeois dubbed the “Banjo Killer". The fingerboard and belly bridge are figured ziricote wood. The Tor-tis pickguard is handmade, and the bridge pins are ebony with abalone dots. The tuners are Nickel Waverly with ivoroid buttons. Here's what IBMA "Guitar Player of the Year" Bryan Sutton has to say about the guitar: "From the first time I played the Slope-D Bourgeois that would come to be known as the "Banjo Killer", I was amazed at the range of tone and volume the guitar could produce. The guitar always seems to be to able to handle any dynamic level of play. I can hear the guitar clearly in a loud jam session without feeling like I have to overplay and also enjoy a full and sustained tone when I want to play softly.” Dana Bourgeois has this to say: "The BK Slope D has a deep, broad tone. Through wood selection and voicing, we push it in the direction of a bigger bottom end, a "lush" top end, and greater volume, similar to the characteristics of Bryan's original Banjo Killer. When I first started making slope shouldered dreadnoughts, I went for something as different as possible from the balanced and focused sound of my standard. The Banjo Killer gets me back to that original idea."Learn More

Every guitarist has that one special guitar that they wished they had. Every guitarist has a story about that killer guitar that got away. Here's that guitar. There is nothing cooler than a Red, White and Blue guitar. It doesn't matter what side of the political fence you are on. From the radical stance of Wayne Kramer of the MC5 to the good, old boy antics of Buck Owens, a Red, White and Blue guitar makes a statement. It's rock and roll. This beautiful guitar, a one-off PRS CE 24, with a custom Red, White, and Blue metal flake finish top really makes. It's gorgeous, really, a spectacular guitar. It's got the vibe, the mojo and shows the world that are you, indeed, a proud American.
Since the dawn of rock and roll, the snap and response that comes from a bolt-on neck guitar has been an essential part of the mix. These attributes have, in turn, become essential to many players trying to tell their story through music. The CE 24 pairs PRS’s traditional body combination of the mahogany back and maple top with a bolt-on maple neck and rosewood fretboard. The neck sports a Pattern Thin carve and satin nitro finish for a natural, addictive feel. To further maximize the guitar’s inherent tone and clarity, the CE 24 features PRS 85/15 pickups, which Paul designed to have remarkable clarity as well as extended high and low end. The electronics consist of a volume and push/pull tone control with 3-way toggle switch for a total of six classic sounds.Learn More
The original CE was introduced in 1988 and offered players PRS design and quality with the added snap and sparkle of traditional bolt-on guitars. Returning after nearly a decade of being out of the lineup, the CE 24 is back and better than ever.

The Emperor 5 Standard Classic features the very best of over 30 years of building experience in an instrument that blends the tone, playability and pro-player reliability bass players have come to expect from Fodera with a more traditional look that will be at home on any stage. Hand-selected Alder or Ash bodies, quarter-sawn 3-pc Rock Maple necks, with Birdseye Maple or Indian Rosewood fingerboards delivers classic tonal combinations, while a PLEK’d compound-radius fingerboard provides the effortless playability Fodera has become known for. Add to that the powerful sustain and resonance from our fully adjustable, custom designed, bell-brass bridge, and the Emperor 5 Standard Classic delivers the look and feel you’ll only get from a hand-crafted Fodera bass.
The Emperor 5 Standard Classic features a set of our Fodera/Duncan dual-coil pickups and the Fodera/Pope Standard Preamp with 3-band EQ. Designed in collaboration with Seymour Duncan, our passive Dual Coil pickups were designed to provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Compared to an active soapbar style pickup, the tone is warmer and more organic. Wired in parallel, these pickups offer a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight yet come with the added flexibility of full single-coil operation providing the snap, warmth, and mid-range punch of classic single-coil Jazz Bass pickups. Designed for optimal performance, our 3-band Fodera/Pope preamp offers an incredibly low noise flow, a very musical sounding EQ, and active/passive operation for the utmost reliability and flexibility whether you’re on stage or in the studio. Together, these electronics let you tailor your tone, from deep and round to bright and punchy and everything in between.Learn More

I don't like to start with bad news, but I may as well get it out of the way. The serial number has been removed from this instrument. It happened many years ago but we cannot undo it. I dated this guitar from the pot codes. We have a 1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom. It's a three piece neck with a volute, pancake body, and cherry sunburst finish. The frets are good. The pickups have been changed to WCR Fillmore Edition humbucking pickups (a $320 upgrade). They sound great. Check this link out for a full pickup review: http://www.jimwagnerpickups.com/fillmore_review.pdf
Overall condition is very good. There is wear befitting its age. The frets are fine, everything works like it should. It comes with a very cool simulated alligator vintage gig bag.Learn More
Geez, I wanted a Vox Phantom so badly in 1965. Brian Jones played one and he was the bomb. In my mind he was just the coolest guy ever. When I saw my first real Vox in person at Melody Music here in Memphis, I was stunned. I was even more stunned by the case. It was different than any other guitar case I had ever seen. I've got the case. If you have the guitar but no case, we need to hook up. This is a mid sixties Vox case measuring 44" long, 5 3/4" wide at the top width, 17" wide and 4 1/4" deep. The latches and hinges work fine, and the tolex is in good shape. There is some wear but it is in remarkably good condition, especially considering its age.Learn More
I've been aware of this instrument since 1983 when I read an article in Guitar Player magazine by George Gruhn about a 7 string Dobro made by Gibson. I was quite intrigued, as I played Dobro a bit as well. It was a marvel to behold. Now for a little history: CMI was a conglomerate that from 1944 until the mid fifties, owned Gibson and the National Guitar Company. There was a bit of an incestuous relationship between the two companies. It was not uncommon for National to use Gibson bodies, and then use their own necks, hardware, etc. I've seen Gibson J-45 bodies and ES-175 bodies with National parts. The point of this is that there was some intermingling of the two companies. After WWII, National stopped making resonator instruments. However, there was still a demand from traditional Dobro players. Even back then they were searching the pawn shops for used instruments. That brings us back to our Gibson Dobro. It exists, and we have it in our shop. It was possibly a prototype made by Gibson with a vintage National/Dobro resonator. National had a stash of those, and used them in the sixties on some models. So, this guitar was either made as a special order, or as an experimental model. I tend to think it was made for a customer because most prototypes I've seen are somewhat crude - this is not. It is a finished instrument. It is seven strings with four resonator screens. The body is a Gibson Southern Jumbo guitar body. It's bigger than any traditional style Dobro that I've seen. Bigger body, bigger sound; that's how it works. So as just a musical instrument, it's the best sounding Dobro I've ever heard. It's the only one my friends. There is a rumor that two more were made, but it is unsubstantiated. This is about the rarest Gibson on the planet and that is including the elusive, never seen "MODERNE". I've never seen a Moderne in person, but I can look at this guitar anytime I want to. It's clean and nice, showing some light wear, but overall condition is excellent. It's really something. A piece of history - and it can be yours! Comes with vintage hard case.Learn More
