1982 Gibson Grabber bass.

The Gibson Grabber was initially introduced in 1973 replacing the SG-styled EB0 as Gibson's entry-level bass guitar. It was a sibling to the Gibson Ripper bass, but differed in having a bolt-on neck with a Flying V-type headstock, simpler electronics and a single sliding pickup. The name "Grabber" refers to the pickup which can be grabbed by the player and repositioned so as to effect a tonal change.

I've got a wooden Epi Dobro in my collection. I've been playing it a fair bit lately and it's a really nice guitar acoustically. Plugged in it's very quiet and not very full sounding which is a shame, so it would be better close mic'd in live situations. I'd like to try one of the metal versions.

1977 Epiphone SC550

Epiphone SC-550 from the late 1970s, back in the day when Epiphone had their own discrete range of guitars and weren't merely Gibson's equivalant of Fender's Squier brandname. Made in Japan, the scroll-bodied SC-550 is a very cool alternative to Gibson's Les Paul with Black Beauty finish, set-neck construction, ebony fingerboard, 24 fret neck, abalone markers, and - looking at the controls - I'm guessing some kind of coil tap facility. I particularly like the body shape with its German carve which helps accentuate the scroll motif.

Wilshire Phant-o-matic

Epiphone is proud to announce one of our most anticipated new models, the Wilshire Phant-o-matic. Designed in collaboration with Frank Iero guitarist for multi-platinum band My Chemical Romance, the Wilshire Phant-o-matic combines an incredible array of features that only Epiphone would dare put in one guitar. The result is one of the smartest and most flexible guitars on the market with all the vintage styling that made Wilshire models a behind-the-scenes favorite of Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Paul Gilbert, and Steve Marriott.

As with all Epiphones, every Wilshire Phant-o-matic comes with the peace of mind you get from a Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by Gibson Musical Instruments’ famous 24/7/365 Customer Service. See and hear the groundbreaking Wilshire Phant-o-matic today!


My Chemical Romance have sold almost 7 million albums worldwide and they know a thing or two about what makes a great, reliable, and cutting edge instrument. Working closely together over several years of research and development, Frank Iero and Epiphone strove to make an axe that puts the sound of a dozen guitars at your fingertips. The result is what you make it—a straight ahead awesome rock guitar or something completely new and groundbreaking. The Phant-o-matic employs two classic Epiphone pickups, our famous Alnico Classic Plus™ humbucker in the bridge and an Alnico Classic™ humbucker in the neck position. To get the most of the wide tonal possibilities from this pickup arrangement, we’ve included a mono VariTone™, much like the one used most famously by blues legend B. B. King.

I must be missing something - volume, no tone control, VariTone, pick up selector but there's one additional switch up at the front bout that's not listed?
Master Volume Control, 6-Position Rotary VariTone™ notch filter. (Position 1: Bypass, Position 2: 5db at 1950hz, Position 3: 12db at 1100hz, Position 4: 16db at 620hz, Position 5: 18.5db at 360hz, Position 6: 21db at 120hz), Momentary KillSwitch™3-way pickup selector with black toggle cap

I had no idea that Gibson (and Epiphone) made such a variety of guitars. The V2 I remember seeing in the book that came with my 81 V. Some of the other more electrics were definitely a surprise. The one that stood out to me most was the green one with the white back. Why? Very unusual choice, in my opinion.

1959 Gibson SG






Posted Image



Gibson’s “SG” model name made its debut in mid 1959 with the SG Special. It was the exact same guitar as the Les Paul Special utilizing the double cutaway LP body but devoid of the “Les Paul” signature on the headstock and a pearl inlaid Gibson logo instead of the silk screen. The model remained unchanged except for a slight tweak of the neck pickup position for increased neck stability. The double cutaway/LP body style was discontinued in 1961 in favor of the SG body style as we know it today.

Posted Image


This 1960 Gibson SG Special in museum grade condition comes from the cousin of the original owner. We’re told that Lynda purchased this guitar new and played it sparingly. She passed a few years ago and the instrument had no surviving guitar players to pass to so it was offered for sale. It’s in 100% original condition with only replaced strings. It retains the original Gibson logo chipboard case, hang tag with “SG Special Red” model designation, 1/4″ cable, and original Gibson string tag. It’s in good playing condition and is likely one of the cleanest in existence. We’re confident this guitar will be a fine addition to your museum or collection.

1967 Gibson EMS-1235 doubleneck tenor guitar and mandolin


Posted Image


Here we see a super rare Gibson EMS-1235 doubleneck that pairs together a 4-string tenor guitar with a mandolin. It would appear to be a custom order, handmade by master craftsman William Westman in 1967. Note the pickups which are full 6-string sized but only have 4 polepieces.
