Gibson Porn


(this page is out of date, but i want to keep it up for posterity’s sake. my current collection is in the drop down menu.)
I have a modest yet strong collection of Gibsons, covering most of the tones I could ever want from vintage guitar made by that company.

  • 1963 Gibson Melody Maker D – equipped with a pair of 1963 Gibson Pat No. mini-humbuckers, though ’63 PatNo were absolutely the same as the PAF minis.
  • 1971 Gibson SG Pro – Succcesor to the SG Deluxe, this was equipped with a stock bigsby labeled Gibson, embossed P90s, an all mahogony body and several other SG oddities.
  • 1978 Gibson Les Paul Standard – My Wine Red beauty. I didn’t “get” Les Pauls until I played this… bar none one of the best instruments I own.
  • 1979 Gibson ES-335 TD CRR “Country Rock Regular” – Named “Honey Brown,” this was my first CRR. 60s style thin neck, with tonal range from beefy to country twang.
  • 1979 Gibson ES-335 TD CRR “Country Rock Regular” – Named “Coffee.” My adopted second. There are only 300 of these guitars in the world. Coffee has a wider neck, black knobs, and a slightly darker tone than Honey Brown. I prefer to play slide on Coffee.

Not pictured is my vintage Firebird III. I don’t know know it’s year, honestly. Could be a ’60s model, could be a late ’70s model. It’s definitely not younger than that. I’ll post photos when I can. Still trying to think of a good name for her. Of my electric guitars, I play the Firebird most, followed by the Les Paul.
