My Favorite Signature Guitars

Seems like everyone and their brother has a “signature guitar” anymore. You seem them from time to time in Guitar Center or the latest Musician’s Friend catalog, but never all at once. The kind of seem to come and go. I decided to list my favorite signature guitar models all at once for you to check out. These are my favorites from Eddie Van Halen, Dave Mustaine, Dimebag Darrell, Michael Schenker, Tony Iommi, Zakk Wylde, George Lynch, Kirk Hammett, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Eric Johnson, Jeff Beck, Slash, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Randy Rhoads, John Petrucci, Angus Young, and Steve Morse. I wish I had them all!

1958 Les Paul Review

To some the Marshall half stack and ’58 Les Paul is the holy grail or rock and blues! It’s great for slide playing and it just screams Duane Allman – doesn’t it? It’s been on some of the most important rock tours in history.

Here’s a video demo of a ’58 Les Paul:

Commonly referred to as the “Stradivarius of the 20th century”, the Sunburst Les Paul Standard debuted in 1958 featuring PAF pickups and a beautiful carved maple top, visible for the first time through a stunning sunburst finish. We’re proud to exclusively offer 20 plain-topped 50th Anniversary 1958 Les Paul Standard reissues. This finely aged reproduced electric guitar will be the pinnacle of any collection.Gibson has reproduced both look and sound to an amazing degree in this 50th Anniversary model Les Paul. From the single-ply cream binding to the acrylic trapezoid inlays to the vintage tulip tuners, this Gibson Les Paul guitar looks like it came through a time machine. In addition to the accurate choice and quality of woods, the tone of BurstBucker pickups, CTS pots and bumble bee capacitors will take you back to the golden age of rock guitar the moment you plug it in and play.The highly involved antiquing process is done by hand, one guitar at a time, by guitar artisan Tom Murphy. It’s not a chemical process, but a very time consuming and tedious work that includes a multitude of elaborate steps. Through much trial and error, Murphy has developed an amazing ability to recreate the checked and chipped finish of a true vintage instrument with great success. Your guitar will carry the look of a thousand smoky bar gigs, countless sessions, and maybe even a few world tours.

Gibson ES-339 Custom Shop Review

Gibson ES-339 Custom Shop Guitar Sunburst

Gibson has released a new guitar from it’s Custom Shop – the Gibson ES-339. Sounds really close to the trademark ES-335 doesn’t it? That’s because it’s a very close cousin! Basically it’s a modern day version of the 335, but the 339 is smaller, more compact, has updated electronics, and a slimmer neck. It features “Memphis Tone Electronics” that keep the highs when you turn down the volume so you retain some bite at any volume through the ’57 humbuckers. The ’59 neck has a slim 60’s profile and the lighter guitar has a reduced weight. It even has the jack mounted on the outer rim, a first for ES style Gibson guitars. These guitars are priced very reasonably for Custom Shop axes as well.

Gibson Custom Shop ES-339 with '59 Rounded Profile Neck Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar Antique Vintage Sunburst Gibson Custom Shop ES-339 with ’59 Rounded Profile Neck Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar Antique Vintage Sunburst

The ES-339 is the next generation from the Custom Shop of Gibson’s iconic ES electric guitars. It goes where no guitar has gone before with a bold, new semi-hollow tone that is rich with expressive, even stinging, overtones. The ES-3309 has some exciting enhancements including Memphis Tone electronics, outer rim output jack, and reduced dimensions and weight.

Memphis Tone electronics Memphis Tone circuitry utilizes 500K audio taper pots that operate with an interactive load that preserves high end as you turn down the volume. The loading effect preserves the full-bodied tone with rich midrange and signing sustain from the ’57 Classic humbuckers while adding a very sweet bite. Another difference is the volume is very smooth, rolling off in even increments along with the numbers on the knobs. Since they operate more like how we hear (logarithmically), the controls work the way the player thinks they should. So when the guitarist turns down the volume the highs are still there!

Outer rim output jack Here’s one ES players have been wanting: The output jack is mounted on the outer rim. No more cable crossing the body, spoiling the guitar’s clean looks and and getting in your way.

Reduced dimensions and weight The ES-339 builds on the success of the semi-hollowbody guitars first introduced by Gibson in 1958 with the ES-335. Lighter and more compact than a traditional semi-hollow guitar, the ES-339 retains the distinct semi-hollowbody electric tone that powered so many hit records and landmark performances.

Two ’57 Classic Humbuckers with 3-way pickup selection plus individual volume and tone controls provide the incredibly versatile sounds that make the semi-hollow electric famous for its use in jazz, rock, blues, country, and nearly every other style you can think of. Quality Kluson tuners keep retuning time to a minimum, and nickel hardware enhances the great looks.

This version of the ES-339 comes with the rounded ’59 neck profile for guitarists who prefer a chunkier neck, but still enjoy fast, smooth playing action. The new slender 30/60 neck is available on the ES-339 30/60 Neck (product #515256).

To show off its vintage vibe, the ES-339 is available in a choice of three finishes: Antique Cherry, Antique Vintage Sunburst, and Light Caramel Burst. The lacquer finish is applied with a light, even touch, allowing the guitar’s wood to resonate naturally while providing a protective, mirror-like shine.The Antique Cherry and Antique Vintage Sunburst both come with aged bindings to further enhance the proud ES tradition.

The ES-339 comes with a Gibson Custom Shop hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity.
