    2004 Les Paul Historic Collection 1959 Reissue “hot lanta”

    Here is the closest guitar you will ever see to Duane Allman’s original “Hot Lanta” burst. Unbelievably similar gull flame pattern. This is a 2004 that was originally sold by Ronn David at Vintage World. Absolutely spectacular top. It plays beautifully, no issues or funny business. Weight is...

    2014 LPR9 LemonBurst -STUNNING! sell/trade You have to see this one!!!

    The top on this R9 is stunning! This looks more akin to the Collector's choice "Whitford" 1959 of the same year (2014)... I mean this thing is gorgeous. Plays as good as it looks! Pickups were upgraded by the previous owner to Rolph Pretenders and they sound excellent! Very good condition and...

    2018 Historic Collection Les Pauls vs. Previous Years' Reissues

    If this already exists, I apologize in advance. I am about to pull the trigger on a 2018 58' Historic Reissue VOS (pics and details to come:applause:). The last reissue that I purchased was from 2014 (an r9, back when it was simple, reissue = reissue). I understand in 2015/2016/2017 things...

    FS: Vintage PAF Pickup w/ Nickel Cover (from 1960/1961)

    Hi All - I just took a PAF out of an early 1961 Gibson. Perfect condition (no rewind, not altered, etc.), great patina on the nickel cover, long original lead (11 inches), strong output (7.5ohm), etc. Pretty much perfect as far as old PAFs go. As long as I net $2,200 I'll be happy (which I...

    Hi All - I am selling a (new) 1959 Single Cut, Luthier-Built Replica. I had this built by one of the top luthiers (it takes him about 3 months) and during that time I bought a Les Paul conversion, which is satisfying my Old-Growth needs. Thus, I am putting this up for sale. It has old-growth...

    A HistoricMakeovers NGD - Skinnerburst^2!

    BYO KIT?

    Hey guys, same as a lot of people on here, i want to do a les paul build, BUT it has to be the right build. So, I'm pretty handy, but doing a scratch build is out of my league.
