1959 Gibson ES-175 D

1959 Gibson ES-175 D. Its the D that makes these guitars so versatile. From Jazz, Americana, Rock and Roll, Izzy even used one in GnR. Two 1959 PAF pickups that sound unbelievable, the guitar has had some finish work done at some point and changed tuners but also is featured as the only ‘59 to feature in Adrian Ingram’s ES-175 book. Look out for this guitar along with another couple of ES-175s in an upcoming issue of Guitarist Magazine

1964 Gibson SG Junior, Cherry

1964 Gibson SG Junior, Cherry

Super clean and original Gibson SG Junior from 1964; we are big fans of Juniors here at V’n’R and this guitar is no exception. Guitars don’t get much simpler than this, a featherweight Honduran Mahogany body and neck, single P90 pickup in the bridge, a volume and tone control and a wraparound bridge and tailpiece. Despite the simplicity a good Junior can be one of the most versatile and intuitive guitars out there. Through an amp that’s breaking up nicely they sound big, bold and punchy but will clean up to an almost acoustic like whisper. This one in particular is slightly darker sounding than other SG junior we’ve dealt with, no bad thing; if anything it sounds closer to the earlier style double cutaway Junior.

The guitar has no issues, breaks or repairs and the original tailpiece is still nice and straight and the cherry nitro finish is bright and un-faded.

The guitar comes with hangtags and a Gibson Challenge case

1978 Travis Bean TB1000S

1978 Travis Bean TB1000S. What an incredible guitar! These amazing guitars went through a few refinement changes over the limited time they were made but the Aluminium neck and the awesome proprietary neck mounted pickups were a constant. Being a later 78 guitar this one has the
painted neck and slim body but still has all the important details. One killer guitar!

1961 Fender Stratocaster

1961 Fender Stratocaster

Here’s a great Pre-CBS 1961 Fender Stratocaster. Nice slim profile, slab board neck. Body had been overpainted but has been taken back to what looks to be the original finish giving it a bit of a relic vibe. The hardware, pickups and guard are all good with traces of the Olympic white refin evident underneath. Super cool and great to play after coming back from a little fret treatment. Details on the website soon or send us an enquiry!
