Gibson Peghead

The Golden Era of the Gibson Thinlines

Here is a another nice 59 with a FON from 1958. This is not uncommon in that many guitars are begun in one year and completed the following year.

Also note the neck joint photo which shows a fairly deep set to the neck and a shallow angle, typical of 58s and early 59s.

This is a beautiful plain top 335 with really great color in the sunburst.

This great example comes to us courtesy of Tom Wittrock, a well-known collector, vintage guitar expert, great player and singer and all around nice guy. Tom is also the host of the Vintage Les Pauls area of the Les Paul Forum.
