Vintage guitars for sale: Gibson

Gibson guitars have always been desireable; a true testament to the skill of the guitar builders at perhaps the worlds best-regarded guitar company. From their simplest entry-level solid bodies to the inordinately expensive custom-built jazz guitars, all of Gibson's output has been created in America, yet loved world-wide. Vintage Guitar magazine placed nine Gibson guitars in their 'top 25 most valuable guitar' list.

Gibson's golden period was between the late 1950s and mid 1960s, these are outstanding instruments, but generally any guitar built at the legendary Kalamazoo plant, especially during the CMI-period (pre-1970) will be very well-made indeed. This is not to say all of their guitars are equal however, and the price difference between two vintage Les Paul guitars could be tens, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Later Nashville-produced instruments are the least desireable vintage Gibsons, but as long as the Gibson name is present, it will still be a quality guitar.

Models to look out for: Just about anything prooduced before 1970, including (but by no means limited to..) Explorer, Les Paul, SG, ES-335, Flying V, Firebird, Melody Maker. 70s guitars are becoming more desireable, with prices rising and although less collectable can make great players
