Where should I start with this amazing American-made 1999 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Elegant? Seller says this is one of 300 made by Gibson in 1999 and it was built to compete against Paul Reed Smith.

1984 Gibson Explorer Designer Series Electric Guitar

This 1984 Gibson Explorer Designer Series Electric Guitar stopped me dead in my tracks. She’s that good looking.

She rocks Seymour Duncan Vintage Blues pickups and seller notes the original wiring harness is intact. Other features worth pointing out are her non-tremolo stop tailpiece and triangular knob pattern. Seller says she’s got some average play…
