    Vintage Gibson Guitars, Basses & Amps
  1. Just a side note, you will need an "unbalanced" cable to go with it. I found this one at Sweetwater, but it is only 5 foot long. Mine is a Hosa cable also but longer. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PXF105--hosa-pxf105-5-foot?mrkgcl=28&mrkgadid=3308752981&rkg_id=0&product_id=PXF105&campaigntype=shopping&campaign=aaShopping+-+SKU+-+Accessories&adgroup=Cables+-+Hosa+-+pxf105&placement=google&adpos=1o5&creative=290335234793&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=Cj0KCQjws7TqBRDgARIsAAHLHP6s88rgwsAOrhnbg9j7HsRUizwe1Ez1OgU_HrkZIeaxSrMGrro9oU0aAjqeEALw_wcB
  2. You can buy a Sure A95U at many retailers. It is the closest transformer available to the original. Keeping the transformer close to the amp gives you the best results. https://www.americanmusical.com/Item--i-SHU-A95U?src=Y0802G00SRCHCAPN&adpos=1o5&scid=scplpSHU+A95U&sc_intid=SHU+A95U&gclid=Cj0KCQjws7TqBRDgARIsAAHLHP7uL3x5laFbdaIpPs8OfoHkQtZZ3WjyrT3dZFrCMMG6TEfrnThYQKAaAgdnEALw_wcB I watched eBay for many years to find an original, they are rarer than Hen's Teeth!
  3. Musicians Friend & other retailers sell a Gibson Les Paul case for $199. If you get the right guy on the phone, he might let you use a coupon on it. It says Gibson Gear on the photo but in reality it doesn't. Ebay has several used cases, but I didn't see one for less than $189. I'd buy the new one if it were me unless there was much more savings. They are made by TLK if you want to find an unbranded case...….

It's been for sale about 8 months...………….
  5. It does look to be a highly modified SB-350. If it is a long scale, it's a SB-450. The hardware has been changed from chrome to black. It was likely refinished. I don't think that Gibson used that stop tailpiece on any bass until 2011. They were made between 1972 & 1974.
  6. The price on these pickups vary, one sold on Reverb about three years ago for $125. I've seen them go higher. There must be an internal transformer in the guitar or you wouldn't get any sound out of it when plugged in a normal guitar amp. The bridge pickup looks to be a hot humbucker, interesting combination!
  7. It has a Les Paul Recording low impedance pickup in the neck position, the rest?????????????

    Here is a blow up of the neck joint.

    Here are a few photos from an original brochure that may help, the shot of the neck joint is quite small......
  10. Here is a classical with Kasha bracing. Not the one I was remembering but expensive. It's been greatly reduced...……... https://reverb.com/item/5748249-paul-champagne-ka-kasha-braced-classical
  11. These have always been somewhat under rated. For a Gibson acoustic with rosewood back & sides it's a bargain! Another builder was using the Kasha bracing & was selling his guitars for huge money, I don't recall his name, Stein?
  12. I've had a Mark 72 for just shy of 30 years. I'm more of an electric guy, but one strum on this thing and I had to have it. The tone & bass is phenomenal & the neck plays like butter. I ended up acquiring an original store display some years later & bought a repaired Mark 35 just to have another guitar to hang on it, (it was cheap). The Mark 35 in my opinion doesn't compare to the 72 in tone. A much thinner tinier tone. Still an ok acoustic.
  13. This is what I found when I was thinking about buying my Firebird... http://www.steinberger.com/media/StnbrgrGrlsTnrInstruc.pdf
