The holy grail of all pickups since the 50s - the Tim Shaw pickups of the 80s have a great reputation as being as close to an original PAF for a fraction of the cost. These pickups came stock in higher end Gibson guitars since late 1980 -1985. Up for sale is this killer 1985 Gibson Les Paul Custom. Equipped with a pair of Tim Shaw PAFs, this guitar combines vintage vibes with a more attainable price point. It also comes just after Norlin’s sale of Gibson, which brought about a return to the higher quality of Gibson’s golden era. Are the guitar has a very comfortable medium C-shape neck. It’s not quite the girth of a 59 profile, but much closer to it than a slim 60s. So it’s a little “in between” the two. The frets are in good shape as is the binding. The top and back of the body are very clean with only minor marks on the back from normal use. There is a little bit of flame on the top near the knobs, although it looks to have a three-piece top which is typical of the time. There are a few minor dings and battle scars around the edges. There’s one near the upper strap button. It’s a pretty clean guitar for being over 35 years old! Comes in the original Gibson “chainsaw“ case, gold strap locks installed and gold non-strap lock buttons. Studio/recording ready, used in a studio by me. . #gibson #gibsonlespaul #gibsonlespaulcustom #lespaul #lespaulcustom #vintagelespaul #vintageguitar

Stunning and rare Gibson Les Paul Artisan from 1977 limited production where only 1500 were made. Professionally setup, working perfectly, no issues. Beautiful walnut wood gives an amazing tone which can be further enhanced by an unusual factory installed 3rd pickup giving you a ton of options in the studio and live. This is pretty unique comparing to all other Les Pauls. See a demo of this guitar plugged directly into 1953 Fender Champ (also for sale). This amazing guitar is very easy to play, stays in tune and the intonation is perfect. Comes with a hard shell case.

Check out one of the coolest guitars in town @dakotascoolguitars He found this on tour with @dirtyheads on a day off in #cheyennewyoming. It is a 1963 @fender Jaguar that had a cool old black refin years ago. The paint has a tiny bit of glitter in it and looks really cool in the light. Before this left his position he replaced the original bridge with @masterybridge for optimal set up and intonation. Tons of “mojo” and just feels right. If all that wasn’t enough it has the perfect tortoise shell pick guard, which of course is where all the tone comes from. #vintage #rare #dakotascoolguitars #guitar #vintageguitar #fender #jaguar #1960s #1963 #surfguitar #fenderjaguar #vintagejaguar #johnnymarr #rosewood #claydots #singlecoil #guitarporn #guitarsofinstagram #vintagefender @fender @puisheen @fenderoftheday
