I have decided to let go of a number of guitars and just keep a few of my everyday players and prized possessions.

To start here is a 2015 True Historic 1959 unplayed case stored and purchased new by me from House of Guitars. Untouched by anyone other than Gibson staff, Curt, and me. $7500. (I sold its sister in Tobacco Burst for close to $9k a couple years ago...I think they were among the best True Historic tops I ever saw).

Stunning Collection! Usually when someone posts "Massive guitar sell-off" in an ad, there are twenty cheap guitars that no one wants. If this is what you are selling, than what are you keeping???

Good luck!

The secret is everytime it is your wife's birthday buy yourself a guitar instead of her new shoes. You would be surprised how fast the collection grows!

Working on taking pictures and researching current prices but will entertain reasonable offers in the meantime. Not a fire sale just slowly selling off the collection. Thanks.

I am actualy just keeping the stuff I play and not the ones that were too beautiful to touch or were just set aside as an investment...Bobburst Les Paul, Build a Burst Les Paul, AM RI '65 Strat and a few nice ones like a private stock CU24 but I actually play it....plus I have Clapton's Beano hidden in my attic but don't tell anyone.

P.S. Guitars all stock unless noted. I do lower the volume and tone knobs on Lesters (just add washers) and this one has the tuning keys tinted (aged).
