Sorry I haven't taken any pics yet (will have in the next day or so), but I have prices in mind, considerably less than typical market prices.


I have a nearly full set of 1959 Gibson parts/hardware/wiring for a Les Paul or ES-335 here's the list:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

- Pair of clean unmolested PAF's. Never had the cover's off. Leads untouched. Normal spacing (ie...non Jazz model types)
Yes, they sound like God himself. All original and clean.

-Pair of black M69 pickup rings. Clean with no breaks

-1959 Wiring harness, complete. All date codes and caps correct (sprague bumblebees). Taken from a '59 ES-335, but will suit LP etc.

-Set of 4 original amber knobs

-Set of 4 original knob pointers

-Set of original 1959 Kluson Single line, single-ring, patent # tuners. Couple tips missing, couple crumbling, and a couple are decent.

-Original 1959 Truss Rod cover - bell shaped

-Set of '59 strap buttons

-Nickle non-wire ABR-1 bridge with hardware - original late 50s.

- Nickle stop tailpiece-- 1959, some oxidation/wear, but original and in great working condition. Some wear evident on the top from it being strung "over-the-top."

- Stop tailpiece hardware for the above tailpiece---nickle, 1959 originals.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Plus I also have a set of decent 60s double-line, double ring Klusons.


All of the parts (except the 60s tuners) are from the same 1959 ES-335, and are all guaranteed original, in good shape.

I have prices in mind,cheaper than dealer prices or ebay prices, but shoot me a realistic offer, or inquire.

PM if any of you are interested in anything. They will be listed on Ebay the middle of this week.


Thanks for looking,
-Collin

Okay, got the guitar out, ran out of time to take really good pictures tonight (I usually take them during daylight hours, as I have no lighting equipment).

I will shoot some more detailed pics of everything tomorrow, including more pics of the PAF's. Plus, there are a few parts I didn't take pictures of yet.

Here goes:


PAF's -- I will get in there with better lighting tomorrow and show it, but I removed a couple of the bobbin mounting screws, and I see white in each one, so it's safe to say they are all Double Cream Pickups.

Original Kluson tuners----condition of keys is worse than I mentioned before (now that I see them). Only remnants of keys left on a couple tuners, and the rest has turned to dust (included!), but they are legit and turn nicely.

Thanks for the many emails etc, guys.

The PAFs, Knobs, and Amber switch tip are all SOLD, pending payment.

(and to be fair, they were to the first person in line who had contacted me etc.)

Everything else is still available, and I'll have better pics asap.

WARNING: this guy has disappeared after my payment.
HE said he'd contact me with tracking number the day before yesterday, and since then he remained in silence not responding to emails.

A possible scam.

I hope that wasn't the case, a bit quick to call him on that. I did ask the question about where he got the guitar for you guys looking to buy though. His first posts were about being a student not being able to afford a real gibson, so I was a little worried about him all of a sudden having a 59 gibson. He may be busy for the weekend, I really hope you guys aren't getting scammed. Personally I would reverse that ASAP, this thread was a little scary to me. Good luck bro.

Got back in touch with him. He replied.
Thank you guys for keeping an eye on this.
When you pay off of ebay like I have done you can get nervous after shelling 5k if the seller disappears for two days without promised news on shipping.
I hope he won't disappear again. I feel a bit more comfortable now, but I will need him to be in constant touch until I have a valid tracking number.
