1964 Gibson B-45 12 String Acoustic Guitar

1964 Gibson B-45 12 String Acoustic Guitar

Thinking of the ’60s often brings Muddy to Beatles territory and this 1964 Gibson B-45 12-String Acoustic is no different. Typically “A Hard Days Night” is a tune that falls in line with Muddy. Banging that hit out on a vintage acoustic guitar brings me back to some long days I had on the road in my hey day. This Gibson here though is a 12-string. Not as common as a six string, but these…

Gibson SG Standard Cherry 1989 Vintage Guitar

Gibson SG Standard Cherry 1989 Vintage Guitar

Stumbled across this Gibson SG Standard Cherry 1989 Vintage Guitar using Muddy’s Law. Muddy’s Law states that if there are people watching well then there is something to see. With 21 sets of peekers at the time, I dove into this Gibson SG Electric Guitar a little deeper. Figured I’d close my eyes, hum a little tune and see if she’d hum right back at Ole’ Muddy. Wouldn’t you know this solid wood, ruby red…

1984 Gibson Explorer Designer Series Electric Guitar

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. Seller says she’s reminiscent of James Hatfield’s axe at the time. I just love her pinstriped top. That will definitely draw eyeballs. 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…

2004 Gibson Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar

2004 Gibson Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar

Is there any doubt in your mind why 47 people would be watching this 2004 Gibson Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar? (My gut is that she is from the USA but I cannot read her label to be sure. If you want to know for sure ask seller.) She’s a classic. She’s a beauty. She’s a classic beauty. You can grow weak in the knees over her cheerful sunburst. Or maybe it’s the hummingbird on the pickguard that…

Epiphone PR5E Acoustic Guitar

Epiphone PR5E Acoustic Guitar

Here’s a lady who knows how to make a great impression by posing in front of a cool old jukebox, a lightly used Epiphone PR5E Acoustic Guitar that was made in Korea in 1993. Seller says she has some light scratches but “sounds amazing” I like her natural finish, super sharp cutaway and classy back stripe (I’m a big fan of back stripes.) The cover plate for her truss rod on the headstock says “Gibson” and I’m…

Gibson Ripper Electric Bass Guitar

Gibson Ripper Electric Bass Guitar

Here’s a Thunderkitty I haven’t seen in a while, an early ’80s Gibson Ripper Electric Bass Guitar. Seller is scant on details (that’s been a recurring theme today.) Here’s seller’s total description: “1980-81 Gibson “THE Ripper” 4-string bass guitar, natural finish, with hard shell case. Excellent condition. Seller’s listing also lets us know she’s made in America, comes with a hardshell case and is all original. The one picture seller shares shows a nice looking bass. I especially…

Gibson Corvus Electric Guitar

Gibson Corvus Electric Guitar

What do I spy with my little eye? A made-in-the-USA Gibson Corvus Electric Guitar circa 1983. Seller says she’s in very good condition and all original (except she comes with a non-original case.) She’s made of lightweight alder and I’m sure her trippy little body helps her on the scale. Seller says her black finish shows very light wear and very few flaws. The finish along the neck is worn along the fretboard edges (seller adds this…

Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar

Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar

I’ve always had a thing about Angus Young, doing that chicken leg stomp and strut across the stage in his schoolboy knickers, Gibson SG leading the way. Much like this 15 year-old Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar I’m writing about now. Angus’s act is so weird, so raw. You cannot look away, or at least I can’t. Nor can I can keep my eyes off the cherry red SG, thrusting out like a sword as the…

Gibson Keb Mo Acoustic Electric Guitar

Gibson Keb Mo Acoustic Electric Guitar

This is a honey of a guitar, a mint condition 2013 Gibson Keb Mo Acoustic Electric Guitar from Gibson’s custom shop in Bozeman, Montana. Seller doesn’t really spill over this beauty’s features, but they are easy enough to search and find. Seller says she has no scratches, dings or dents and her electronics work great. Plus she comes with her original hardshell case. Seller says he hasn’t played her much as he mostly plays electrics. I get…

Gibson Thunderbird II Electric Bass Guitar—allegedly played by Entwistle and Guigsy

Gibson Thunderbird II Electric Bass Guitar—allegedly played by Entwistle and Guigsy

This 1968 Gibson Thunderbird II Electric Bass Guitar is cool in its own right. Once you add its pedigree, yowza! See, seller says this bass wasn’t owned by just one well-known musician, but two. This non-reversed Thunderbird first belonged to the late, great John Entwistle of the Who. When John passed on, so did the bass—it was bought by Guigsy of Oasis and, seller says, owned by him for years. It comes with the original case with…
