Gibson-style Guitars

Updated 22 April 2006

Rockin' les paul thangs:

the archtop Ibanez (left) is $500 and the generic, flatop Special (right) is $400. Both have set necks. The les paul Special has a big, fat 50's neck. The Ibanez finish has been thrashed -- but everything else is great.

Mo' rockin' les paul-style:

white les paul custom (left) is probably of the lawsuit Ibanez era; the Melody Maker with P-90s (right) is a 60's thing that we worked on.$400 each

Gibson-style Les Paul with set/glued-in neck

Cherry sunburst finish over book-matched flamed maple top. Les Paul-style solid body guitars are re-appearing as a musician's favorite, hence, I offer at $350. The list on similar guitars is around $900. This comes with humbucking pickups, a tunamatic bridge, and vintage-style Kluson tuners and is very reminiscent of a classic 1958 Les Paul. Sounds good at all volumes.

Ordering Merchandise

I understand your concerns about buying a guitar over the Internet. You can't put your hands on it. You don't know what it'll look like, what it'll sound like, how it will feel. Then there are the issues surrounding shipping anxiety: "Will it arrive undamaged?" "When will it arrive?" "WILL it arrive?" The concerns go on and on: "What's the tracking number?" "Will you ship it today?" "When will you ship it?" "Can I get it tomorrow?"

Here are five key points to put your mind at ease:


"Experience Ecstacy" for a week with your new guitar. If the instrument is not what you expected, then expect a full refund on merchandise returned in the condition of purchase. Fatdog considers this the backbone of good biz (and happy customers).

NOTE: There is no refund for shipping.

Trade-ins are seriously considered at a high value.
