Perhaps most importantly, the DC Pro's compound radius fingerboard provides a no-compromise solution to those who demand comport and playability all the way up the neck. Players will find a perfect "fit" for their left hand. "The ongoing evolution of the Gibson Les Paul guitar has reached a new benchmark with the introduction of the Les Paul DC Pro," said Tom Spaulding, Product Sales Coordinator for Gibson's Custom, Art, Historic Division.

Here we have a Very Rare "NAMM SHOW PRESENTATION" This is a 1981 Gibson Les Paul Standard Heritage 80 Hand Built Example. This particular guitar was presented at the NAMM show by Gibson and was bought by the guitarist for the Kentucky Headhunters (unfortunately, no documentation of that can be provided). Nonetheless, These early 80's are known as the "PRE HISTORIC" 1959 Reissue guitars built by the best of the best Luthiers Gibson had to offer and This one is Amazing. Also rare because its one of the few in " FLAME MAPLE" with the meaty 58/9 AAA Mahogany Neck with a Brazilian Rosewood fretboard and with the Vintage correct Trapazoid MOP Inlays same as 50's Les Pauls used SEE THE PICS..most of these Heritage series guitars are Quilt tops I have had a few of those and they are nice too but this is a Very Nice Flame Top Example and is truly sure to please the true Player-Collector-Investor. This Guitar was presented to a famous celebrity musician who toured with this guitar and played it alot because it plays and SOUNDS AMAZING...this H-80 series has some early PAF recreations built by the now famous Tim Shaw who is known to be among the very best ever PAF recreations ever built bar non again we have had several all with Tim Buckers PAF's. This guitar gets THE TONE in Spades...RICH Harmonics jump off when attacked right its controllable and yet dangerous and when called for raw...It can do Bright real well too with the Bridge Pickup and The Neck Pickup has all the Deep Growl lows...you can ask for. This is a real true Relic naturally Aged looks like a Tom Murphy aged style with some Real Honest wear hear and there.
No Fret Buzz or sound from the electronics its Absolutly Recording worthy. One of the nicest Pauls I have ever played it is set up to ROCK and NO funny business ..I may install NOS Vintage Sprague 50's Bumbel bee 22 x 400 Vintage Gibson Tone Caps for the heck of it if so add $175.00 not done yet..
this guitar sounds and plays unbelievable! Many of rock 'n' roll's classic albums were recorded with a 1959 Les Paul Standard (Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin, etc). Hovland caps have been added to the tone pots (a standard upgrade for these guitars). In 1981, Gibson was still making their guitars in Kalamazoo, MI and this is a fine representation of their work. As you can see in the pictures, it has a BEAUTIFUL flamed maple top. It has some wear on the back, but that's to be expected from a touring guitarist's instrument. Fortunately, it also has the sound and playability that's to be expected from a touring guitarist's instrument! Comes with its Original hardshell case included. Please email me with any questions.

This one is A REAL Collectors Dream! Yes this is the VERY RARE Tokai Paisley Tele... Tokai's version is so much more accurate in both Color and built to specs than the later 80's-90's and to date...released made in Japan Paisley teles versions from Fender Japan...This true Vintage Tele Plays so nicely it's action is so fast its really plays like a dream...runs just fly of the fretboard and the neck is a real nice Figured & Flamey AA Maple mid-sized and the frets are in very good - excellent-original ..The pickups and hardware are all original and they have a nice patina natural aged look....just like the real 69' The sound produced from this Tele is simply AWESOME+++::: The ash tray seen in the pictures is included as well as what apears to be the original hard shell case...at this price.

The Aluminum bodied Talbo by Tokai Gakki Crafted in Japan..
One of the most original unique and beautiful Japanese guitars available from Tokai Gakki. This is the famous TALBO Blazing Fire model guitars, an amazing example surely one of the best performing original design concept all "Aluminum bodied" guitars from one of the greatest Japanese Guitar builders Tokai Gakki of Japan. Its a pretty unique design all right sort of like a star ship they say in Japan if you look at it like I have with a John Lennon 325 in the same room you can see the similarity in the 2 and its also like a super strat with a fat PAF humbucker in the bridge...
The sound it can produce is nothing short of amazing with respect to tonal quality and sustain these are considered very high end guitars in Japan and throughout the world very highly respected feared by some dare I say. The body is all 100% premium Aircraft Aluminum so that it has bright resonant clarity to its tone. Talbo`s known for its great natural sustain and is very Tokai - Strat like in tone many of you know what that is like yet it is also very unique unto it self, I wound say that it has a sort of Vintage Tokai stratocaster type sound with a Ric twist the Humbucker is gutsy and can get ZZ's pearly gates tones with harmonics and this monster tone machine is considered a strat / Junior players dream to play and hear.
This is in great vintage condition = almost like New 9-9,5/10 wow clean!! I can not find any bad points to this guitar,
BTW The aluminum price is rising up the price as you know, This Talbo price is also rocketing sky-high.
The Great and powerful super Tokai strato Aluminum body Talbo a real players & collectors dream.

sorry recently sold but no worries we have a few other Project guitars in stock see them now, go back to solid body guitars just scan down to see them thanks for looking!
I had one of these myself in the late 80's it was black with 2 humbuckers and a neck like a Les Paul and brass parts and I LOVED IT it really rocked and I later sold it at a Guitar show in Marin to the Buffalo Brothers for $400 back then. Anyways I always like these Austin Hatchet guitar and when I came across this one I could not believe my eyes...The wood is outstanding AAA quality its a neck threw type design build with AAA Quality Mahogany with figured maple stripe threw the center it really looks beautiful to set that all off the fretboard is KILLER too it looks like Brazilian Rosewood. This guitar while it is set up like a Stratocaster with its 3 single coil strat pickups and 3 way switch tone wise this thing is a Strat threw and threw yet with its meaty neck it has a Les Paul feel to it and its the best of both worlds...Truly a joy to play and is a high quality guitar period. this guitar was made in the early 80's and is in very good to excellent condition JVG RATED at 9/10 WoW! Your going to love this rocker!
Ohhhh Ya! Here we have for your serious consideration is real sweet find and a great deal....this is a Gorgeous Violin SunBurst finished Japanese High Quality Les Paul style guitar from the talented and highly skilled Luthiers at Matsumoku "ELECTRA" JAPAN this example was made back in 1977 WoW!...This is the Electra X350 MPC guitar, Serial # 18522 this 32 year old Vintage les Paul started out life as an X350 MPC guitar these were originally made with the capabilities to run Electra's MPC modules... forget about all that MPC business, thats has ALL been removed instead and NOW it has ALL been professionaly upgraded to PROFESSIONAL EMG specifications. Due to the EMG pickup upgrade the following modifications have been made to this guitar, Only two (2) knobs are now needed to function this guitar they are the knobs closest to the pickups/bridge/strings and they control: Knob #1:=Master Volume and, Knob #2:=Tone/EQ
Pickup configuration is:
EMG-85 = BRIDGE POSITION (Gold EMG logo)
EMG-81 = NECK POSITION (Silver EMG logo)
This SUPER EMG combination AMAZING for recording and is tried & true and is truly an amazing upgrade to this High Quality Les Paul guitar. This guitar is so close to the true vintage sound of the early Ole School Les Paul, that it's scary. But... it does have it's own voice. The neck is Sweet and versitle,great for jazzy style, its perfect! yet crank it and it will scream like Gary Moore's 57 Paul. The bridge can hurt you with it's crisp highs, and present mids, it too is really versital. (The sustain of this guitar is nothing short of a beast its INCREDIBLE!) Think early Santana!
Through a Fender Deluxe Tube amp, Oh my...it's very warm, with a slight adjustment it becomes cutting, or bright, very ballsy blues & rock tones KILL really whatever you want and through a Digitech RP-3 we tested, it's all that, and a hole lot more!...This guitar has the correct 18 degree ofset to the neck headstock like a vintage Les Paul,this has the original Brass nut, frets are original in very good - excellent condition and have been recently dressed and are Gibson correct size the guitar plays very well all the way up the fretboard with good intonation, and stays in tune...Nicely aged Original Tuners & with gold hardware, The fretboard is particularly nice!!!.. with Premium dark Rosewood and is likely Brazilian Rosewood with top of the line abalony inlays to set this all off...All these apointments are a hugh upgrade price ticked at G!b$0n, This neck is a Nice & MEATY C shape profile and is thicker than most average Japanese Les Pauls.The body top is a Beautiful Premium Figured - Flame Maple with a masterfully applied Violin Finish and has aged to resemble a real 50's Les Paul with its natural ageing over the past 32 years and is a real vintage instrament in its own right. Body back is a nice 2-piece Mahogany. Bindings are really nice and are really beautiful tortishell = sweet! This guitar is JVG RATED in overall Very - good to excellent used vintage players condition a solid 8 /10...cosmetics top and front are prety clean and shows very well with minor dings or scuffs, the back of neck is prety clean, the body has many chips & dings that we have "touched up" using Gibson's correct color touch up pen "lacquer" to really make them blend and overall looks alot better now...ha its the back = don't worry its vintage and won't break the bank either...All and all this is one SUPER well built and Beautiful looking - sounding - playing Les Paul... This is for the intermediate to professional player you will be able to get amazing sounds from this player...
Better pics soon to come.

ELECTRA BRAND INFO:
Electra guitars were imported from Japan by the Saint Louis Music (SLM) of Saint Louis, Missouri from 1971 to 1984 (most MPC models were made by Matsumoku of Matsumoku , Japan) . Matsumoku has made many popular guitar brands over the years including; Aria, Westbury, Westone, Epiphone, Vantage & Vox to name but a few.
In the 70's young Peter Frampton was a very strong endorser of the Electra guitars along with notable Lesley West and other greats... these guitars are the real deal and are not toys...
Original Fender 68 Paisley Reissue Telecaster some say these early 8o's Japanese Vintage Guitars are the best they made since 1968 period.. I have owned several Paisley Tele's over the years some 90's some Tokai 80's and this era the JV era is by far my favorite.. This one exibits pay wear associated with lots of wonderful play...The body has dings & checks & chips and tons of real players vintage vibe, see the neck how it has a well worn in comfortable playing neck and it surly has aged -ambered over the past 26+ years to a beautiful natural patina not found on most of the fake looking Relic work I see so much of passed off on the net these days...This is the real deal not a manufactured Relic but a real over time and earned by playing....this is one VINTAGE REAL PLAYERS PAISLEY TELE with tons of STAGE apeal, The body's paisley has also sustained the scars from bars & cigars and the like ...this baby really looks like the real deal...it to has now ambered with the past 25 years and is a vintage Tele players dream....Condition JVG Rated at 8.5 out of 10 = its All Original, frets very good still pleanty of life, Tuners work great,info & pics to come
here is a link to alot of pictures of this guitar
No way...I assure you this is not trick photography this is the real deal...Here we have what I believe to be the best Tokai Love Rock in the US at this time its also the best I have ever picked up and played Wow...and I have had dozens of Tokai Love Rocks over the years from early 1980's high end examples threw to today's latest Custom Shop HQ Tokai offerings. This example just NAILS!!! the Vintage 1959 Les Paul. Okay, all you High-End Tokai enthusiasts… here's the one you've been holding out for!!! This is a new guitar and was built in 2008 Tokai Love Rock Custom Shop LS-I VF 8974 Les Paul Guitar. This guitar has been seriously upgraded sonicly with a set of Motor City Black Belt vintage PAF replica Pickups, This baby is in 100% pristine condition!
For those of you who know about the unbeatable quality of high-end Tokai instruments, you will need no explanation but for those of you who are tired of going through 10-15 Gibson Les Paul guitars, trying to find “THE ONE," here's where your journey can end the best of the best. I've played for over 38 years and have owned many guitars, for me the bulk of which have been Gibson USA and Custom Shop LPs and of course my Vintage 1965 Gibson es335. I'm not going to downgrade Gibson I love the good one's but you usually have to pay $4500-7500 to get one of them, they have made some marvelous guitars through their storied history, but I've had problems in the last few years with finding one that really “sings." I really like the looks and vibe of the R9 VOS guitars and the older R-9's & R-8's , but I was not interested in dropping $5,000 plus to get one this time round.
Then I saw this one in a Custom Shop in Nagoya, Japan, and that was all it took. The look, the feel, the fit, the 59' vibe, the sound, the all nitrocellulose lacquer finish…so I spent $2,200 on this beauty and made one MAJOR upgrade to hand-wound, Motor City Black Belt Pickups ($320.00 upgrade). They were installed and wired by my guitar tech, who is the best in business, bar none. (The original Tokai MKII pickups were marginal at best not bad but sounded nothing like this! These Black Belts pickups are vintage PAF winds with bridge in the 8-9K range…the neck mid 7's. To learn more about these check http://www.motorcitypickups.com/products/blackbelt.htm
Specs are as follows:
· Exotic woods BODY: Top is AAAA Highly Flamed - Figured Eastern Maple top this is a real SOLID TOP and is not a thin veneer or photoflame, The High grade Mahogany Back – is solid, and is ONE-PIECE and is all 100% exotic African Mahogany

· NECK JOINT: IS correct 1959 spec = Long-Tenon Deep Joint
· NECK: One-piece African Mahogany vintage correct frets with perfectly detailed fret edge binding with a glass like feel, inlays are celluloid and correct old school and are aged like a high end Gibson CS Tom Murphy R-9 aged Replica..
· FINGERBOARD: is Exotic dark Rosewood and it looks like its Brazilian Rosewood with that grain seen on the Old Gibson's
· RADIUS: Similar to VOS '59 Reissue,it has some girth, but probably not as much as a '58 Reissue.
· SCALE: 24.75"
· NUT: Bone (43.0 mm – 1.69")
· NECK INLAY: Old school aged Amber Celluloid Trapezoid
· PAF HUMBUCKING PICKUPS: Motor City Black Belt $320 total upgrade

The guitar is as new and in mint condition, with maybe a total of an hour of play time…. no nicks, dings, scratches, checks, cracks, buckle-rash…heck, you'll be hard-pressed to find any finger-prints on it, for that matter!

Well built Vintage Reissue of the 1972 Stratocaster ...This baby was High Quality made in the Ibanez Factory in Japan, solid quality construction built just like Leo's original Fenders were, this one has very high quality vintage DiMarzio's wow...it sounds incredible period correct 1970's tone this is the real deal and is as nice as the Custom Shop guitars we have had over the years WHAT A FIND.... with the name ElDegas like smuckers it has to be good!... This was logoed to throw off the law suits at the time Ibanez had many guitasr built and was continuing to sell them with several other name brands on the headstock but the guitars were made in the Ibanez factory under strict quality control. This is one of the great one's... not all are created equal its hit & miss sometimes but this is one I hand picked and was amazed with a real diamond... Try it you'll love it!
Here we are very proud to present this SUPER REALISTIC unique and special Fender Stratocaster its an original Genuine Fender product a very high quality Japanese Custom Shop grade Fender JV Stratocaster from late late 80's to early 90's I have had this one over 10 years on ice and out of circulation waiting for the right moment, project and time.. well the time is now. This a JVG SUPER realistic 69' strat In our own JVG Custom Shop this guitar has undergone a complete NOS - Classic vintage transformation to vintage specifications both cosmetically and sonically... The neck is one of the main reasons I bought this guitar in the first place WoW what a feel & vibe but we did not stop there with this project in mind I saw it and new it would be worth all the work with its gorgeously flamed headstock it looks like my real 69 in that respect, we re-fined neck - only & aged -tinted and applied Real & correct 69' Fender Stratocaster logo in the restoration process please see pics ,a correct profile med- slim taper neck @ nut ..., the Kluson style vintage tuners are custom shop level Japanese tuners...and are as good as the best. The frets are vintage correct size and very good with only minimal play wear..90-95%.
The body is all ASH and is a really beautifully grained piece with its SSS routs original in its own right with the perfect sunburst I really love this Strat and I'm sure you will too. The guard is our own creation it our 69' Repro guard Realsitic NOS w/ "Pearl Back" as is all plastic parts are also appropriately aged clones..the Electronics Sonic Upgrade includes the pots are US CTS..250K the tone cap is an original real vintage new old stock cap, vintage wire used, the pickups configuration is 1969 Custom Shop Custom "Ibarra" wound for us...in 1999 for this project. The bridge 'TONE BLOCK" for the tremolo unit is Ols School strat all the way...heavy upgrade in tone its solid vintage inertia alloy type same as old strats and is a huge part of my real 69's strat's tone source....this combination is amazing and helps to recreate authentic vintage realistic tone matched to our real 1969 Fender Vintage Stratocaster its as close as you get with out shelling out $6-16k for a real one... or $4,990 for a CS from fender at this level. This strato is a JVG Super Realistic Custom Recreation 69' tribute and this one will put a huge grin on your face. Its current configuration and cosmetic NOS status is as seen in the pics ... body looks like glass at this point its clean NOS....however if wanted further relicing ( special order allow 2-3 weeks) to taste is available to order give up to 3 weeks, less in most cases for that service. Pics soon to be uploaded check back soon or email us: email@example.com

Here we have another fine Vintage Ibanez Electric Guitar this is a 1977 Ibanez Rare High Quality Japanese Double Neck. This is from the era when some of the finest Japanese guitars were built and this is one. This one has the beautiful grade rosewood that is likely Brazilian Rosewood please have a look at the fretboard closely to make your own determination. Its a great sounding player with very nice action on both necks and is very EZ to play in either 12 string or 6 string mode. Both necks are a comfortable medium - thin profile and are 1-11/16th" at the nut in width. The 12 sounds Amazing and full it really is a great sounding electric 12 string. The 6 string side means business with a biting gutsy Les Paul sound available from the vintage Japanese PAF Replica pickups. This guitar is quite versatile with so many sounds & tones available a real asset to live performances. The beautiful classic Sunburst is overall well looking good have a look at the pics the guitar has been played professionally and has it share of dings and such but overall looks good. Minimal Gibson color correct color match brush tip pen pro touch up's have been done to make her look beautiful once again. This guitar is JVG RATED at a solid 8/10 very good condition and this guitar no structural damage or physical or electrical issues what so ever. All looks original with the exception of a gold neck plate with a number etched into it. I believe the tuners may have been upgraded which are excellent quality. This one is a very solid performer you will be glad to have in your arsenal. Get her now before she's gone!

Sorry she sold! Here we have a great Strat by Fernandes ... this one was made in Japan in 1981 and has been by the looks of it professionally "Fenderized" in its past with "that" company's real vintage logo decal on the headstock front but thats it, other than that she's all stock and original under the hood...This is not a real vintage 1964 Fender Strat although it looks and sounds just like one and is virtually impossible to tell the difference from 6' away this guitar is a very high quality Japanese Fernendez- these were built by the Tokai Gakki factory made to the specs of the vintage 64 Strat and pretty much the same exact guitar as the Tokai SpringySound from the same time period.It's so close in all aspects to the real deal its scary ..accurate spot on vintage correct 3 tone Sunburst finish and it is correct old thin finish you can see grain slightly like our real 64 Strat.. I love this because I actually have a 1964 Strat but I'm afraid to take it out anywhere anymore and this Fernendez is a must have replacement for the real deal...its that cool. This ones finish looks like glass and also has that cool vibe too with its natural wear & dings and such all from real play yet not abused at all ( see pics for that detail ) it now looks like a real 64'aged naturally ( because it is a REAL VINTAGE guitar in its own right..its about 30 years and what you see is real natural aging) The original sunburst body on its Alder wood is just exactly like Leo Fender used and is also in exact to specific detail w/ SSS all original routs and also is a very resonant body ( remeber its a 30 years old wood )and I find it has superior tone rich tone characteristics... With its correct all vintage old school nickel hardware is all original and has a gorgeous Brazilian looking exotic slab board rosewood fretboard with F like pearloid type markers..vintage hardware includes original Kluson style Japanese high quality tuners are likely Gotoh, all nickel parts now aged including Tremolo & saddles..just a bit of crusty rust to be authentic Relic cool vibe.. Just the way I like um...how about you?... It even comes with its trem bar. The all so very important tone block is on board and original and is much like Leo's originals in composition inertia steel block and resonates the tone to a true vintage bell like Fender chime...excellent tone is achieved with these original Japanese Fernandes Strat pickups... I have had several of these old Fernandes strats and they are some of the greatest vintage sounding pickups out of Japan..easily rivals the tone from the same era gray bottoms in the Springy Sound strats from Tokai Japan which I found out were actually built by Semour Duncan back in the day for Tokai's highest end guitars.. this guitar looks right & feels right as well as it actually sounds as good or better than most of the Reissues be it Japanese or US...Have Questions? email Joe @ firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your interest Joe.
Here at JVGuitars we are custom builders as well as restorations... in this case we have re-created with our own line REBORN OLD ..with this example we started out in life as a high quality Japanese mid 80's Paisley Telecaster reissue...we dismantled completely & then completely reworked, aged & reliced the body... and each & every part.

SOLD OUT: Here we had for your serious consideration is a Ibanez Vintage Japanese Guitar that is a REAL WORK OF ART from the Golden Era of fine Japanese Guitars
As the top of the line, the Ibanez MC300ds Musician is a superb piece of guitar art and engineering from Fuji Gen Gakki. Meeting the taste for exotic woods with natural finishes, the MC300ds was made using a sandwich of either carved walnut or dark-stained ash with a maple center and walnut or ash back, around a laminated maple and mahogany neck. The MC300ds has a carved top. Hardware that wasn’t gold-plated was solid brass for enhancing sustain, including the extra-large scalloped tailpiece. As with all instrument series, electronics were more sophisticated as you moved up the line. The MC300ds sported active Tri-Sound Super 88 humbuckers with a dizzying array of controls. Two three-way mini-toggles offered regular humbucking mode plus a coil tap and phase reversal for each pickup. On the MC500 the only difference is A third mini-toggle activated an EQ circuit with volume and tone plus boost and cut controls for a three-band EQ (low, mid, high frequencies). All were controlled by a master volume.Get This very RARE & very clean MC300ds before she's gone!.

if it were not for the crack this would be selling for hundreds more in near mint condition..this is a great vintage Japanese rocker ...
The Model 4 consisted of a full size Stratocaster-style body made of American basswood, 22 fret maple neck with rosewood fretboard, and mother of pearl dot inlays. There was a version with maple fretboard and black dot inlays that was called the Model 4M. The Model 4 originally featured the Kahler 2300 tremolo. After 1986, the Model 4 came equipped with a licensed Floyd Rose style tremolo (Jackson JT-6).

Here we have one of our own JVG Reborn Old custom build PAISLEY 69-T guitars IN PROGRESS, its not finished or aged at all yet STAY TUNED for that part soon to come. Built the right way - the Old School way... same as Leo did back in 1969. OK..I know the Japanese reissues are very poplar but personally I do not care for the pattern or the color like I do the originals. The Japanese process on their Reissues are also different in that they use a decal transfer system much like the famous Photo flame or a water-slide decal, and they just do not have the same classic look , they are not 3 dimensional at all like Old School... so what you see here is different than those this is real old school Wallpaper!... we use old school wallpaper paste to apply it as well, just the same as in 69 the body gets finished in a catilized urethane finish several hunndred thin coats it seems like anyway...its quite the process and it take a long time to finish ione of these... its labor intensive and it truly takes a lot of man hours and so I can see why he Japanese came up with the transfer decal method that cuts the time to 1/6th .. but for you purest and those who want a correct old school version of a Paisley..The color has been painstakingly re-produced for us and this color nails the originals color... see for yourself Nothing like the Japanese Reissues by F. This is a JVG Reborn Old Paisley 69-T will fit the bill... This is for a custom order and we have all parts aged to look 40+ years old.... We have old NOS tone Caps that we use in these to capture the true Old 69 Tone... many options exist for this build.. Pickups, necks & profiles, fret size, Flame maple, Rosewood & or Brazilian Rosewood optional, Pickup options of all kinds.... but it starts with the basics of the Paisley T....
Let me know if we can build you one... takes about 2-3+ months on average once contracted. Prices start at $2350.00 for a turn key Paisley T, add a new Tweed HSC for $150 FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE WITH YOUR PAID ORDER = ask how to get free shipping anywhere we can .

SORRY SOLD OUT! : New release from our JVG Vintage Guitar Vault now available and curently IN STOCK: Here we a have a great player its sort of an R-9 looking Tiger Flamed monster and it sounds amazing like a great Les Paul should this instrument is a true vintage guitar in its own right it is nearly 40 year old and is well preserved please look closely you do not want to miss this one. This Vintage Les Paul has that 1959 Burst Replica feel big time. This is quality built straight away rocker out of Japan in the heat of the Lawsuit era at the great Hishino / Ibanez / Greco Factory this guitar is an exact example of why they were sued in those days... have a good look at the pics... First the headstock is true to the Gibson Les Paul shape and was originally sold without a logo to make it tuff to trace its origin. The rich looking fingerboard on this example just oozes 59 Burst with its GORGEOUS Fit & Finish is real fine quality Wow look at that beautiful grain... now that you notice that this in of it self captures the auora and vibe of the Beauty of the burst... the frets show very little wear a good 85++% almost minty... the neck itself is so slick have a look its an amazing neck too see its beautiful flamed maple 3 piece like 70's Gibsons were done this way too also body is sandwitch style as well the body is nice grade Mahogany and not chambered nicely bound same as vintage Gibson sized bindings nice touch because buy this time in the 70's Gibson switched to the larger ugly looking bulky binding they later switched back in the early 80's to the original vintage size like this one has ... Japan was knocking off the early 59 burst at least a decade before the US started reissuing their own designs.. These vintage Japanese guitars were ahead of their time a step ahead if you will... They not only set out to build them to look like the old Gibson but they really wanted the sound to be right too and that is evident with these PAF replica pickups made by the great MAXON they Maxon really nailed the Paf tone pretty darn good and this example sounds so great they get the great sustain of a vintage PAF and have a sweet tone and then when cranked they can get expressivly nasty with some harmonics & overtones. The Maxon company is responsible for the famous tone produced by the Ibanez TS808 & Maxon , TS9 and so on... They really know their TONE!.. These Maxon pickups are highly sought after now by players & collectors and high bidders have paid upwards of $400 for one of these Maxon Paf's... JVG will not be parting out this beautiful timeless example of Workmanship it is a work of art as it is... The tone is nothing short of that of the High end Tokai Ls120 we had a few years ago it too came with these type Maxon Paf's ..its ( the Tokai Ls120 ) sound is Truly Legendary and those Tokais are selling for well over $3500 now...ya that what I say..WoW... This guitar has it ALL... The SOUND - The Playability action is dead on EZ ROCK Machine... I suggest that who ever layed down the Burst finish on this guitar with its realistic 59 classic Cherry Burst flame top was truly a master finish man its really looks JUST RIGHT!!!!!... man I can not say enough about this little Japanese work of art... They TRULY NAILED IT...Its condition is WAY ABOVE AVERAGE too its really a Beauty in all aspects. This example is very clean for a nearly 40 year old rocker..with several lacquer brush tip matched touch ups at backs edges here and there no big deal its on the back and they match in color now so at a few feet away it looks real clen and the fron is very clean and original...and so this guitar is JVG Rated at excellent vintage condition 8.9+/10 easily or better... 100% excellent working condition, excellent electronics, frets & playability with great low action you can dial in either way you like it. Pickups sound truly awesome and I campare to a fine Gibson tone wise as good or better. A Great AAAA Tiger Flame Maple Les Paul for a song... just in!.... available today . Interested ? Drop me an email to email@example.com .

Fresh RELEASE from the JVG Custom Shop... cured and ready to ship..
Superb! Correct color matched to the old school color Leo insisted on the boys on the line to make for him as legend as I heard it was that Leo went to lunch near the shop and walked past a hardware store and say a Paisley wallpaper and got some as a joke and came back to the shop after lunch and tossed the paper down on the work bench to the guys and said to " make a guitar out of this stuff " Hug?... its wallpaper.. yes we have to use wallpaler paste ..I know ... get started and so they did threw trial & error came up with what we know as the original Pink Paisley Telecaster this was back in the day in somewhere 1969 California... Here is a great Replica of the original.. and will make an outstanding example...
THIS IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED unlike the " F#nd#@ " Japan made reisue wich uses a water transfer decal method.. Our's is old school correct and is as simply as close as it gets without a time machine.
Beyond what you see here we can take this body threw our Relic finish with golding edges etc checking and aged honey ambering as part of our aging process...

SOLD OUT: OK this started in life as not too shappy of a genuine 1995 Gibson SG Standard cool but NOW with a few JVG-Reborn Old improvements .. we added a Maestro long Vibrola its a Gibson made in U.S.A. high Quality mahogany woods this is now a 1960's Recreation upgraded to some real fat vinage TONE- NOW.. read on - overall excellent condition with absolutely no cracks and no excused with no apologies..... for being such a badd @$$ come on just check it out, This Gibson SG Standard comes to you a done deal with the look the feel and the real sound of the American classic 1960's SG.... The reason I bought this guitar in the first place was to recreate one like one of my alltime favorite guitars I ever had which was a 1966 Gibson SG Standard with vibrola which can be seen here on the website... This US 1990's guitar also has that great looking Mahogany wood its beautiful grain caught my eye for sure, at that time it had a stop tail and common apearence even the logo looked to new and not enough patina for my personal taste I don't know about you but I prefer mine looking truly vintage and looking right , So I removed all stop tail business and dowled those 2 holes with mahogany and then touched up those areas and a few other nicks and a few chips to bare wood and matched the cherry lacquer and consealed the dowled area ( the vibrola pretty much obscures the dowled areas ) at the same time then oversprayed my aged cherry color lacquer ( not bright like the standard new finish was but to my minds eye more closely resemble my 66's cherry which is deeper red with a touch of mahogany to the cherry and so then went onto the full front & back respray thin nitro tinted lacquer same formula as old 1960's Gibson so it really deepened the look and richened up the color of the finish to like old Gibson specs..neck was already darker and more like this from factory and also was excellent besides one nick so I left the neck alone and this neck is slick like glass and is a nice handfull too barley a scratch on here never any cracks or issues, ALSO I removed the orig 90's klusons and then I sanded & prepped the front of the headstock and logo area so I could then with my aged nitro color carefully eye matched the rather new - white looking logo & crest mother of pearl shadded it until to my eye it looks just right so now its aged to look about 45+ years old....Please see those pics for detail, ALSO I added a genuine Historic Truss rod cover and ambered the togel switch tip NOW it looks exactly like my old 1966 , See the pics of those details. The neck is super straight,This neck on this one by the way is the correct shape and headstock angle just like my 66's with what is a must = NO VOLUTE this looks accurate and like the real deal!.. all based on my 66 . this was a must for realism for me... MORE ABOUT THIS GUITAR: The frets on this SG are excellent and have the prefered fret edge bindings of a high end guitar..( not all have that detail you know ) also the inlays on this SG are the correct inlays true to old school and made of cellulose nitrate and really looks exactly like my old 66. Then I removed the cheaper Kluson tuners installed by Gibson, and did what we always did back in the day to our Gibsons that have the Klusons that worked soso at best and that is to change out the tuner gears to the best of the old school tuners had to offer and thatis vintage nickel Grovers... Check them out they are the real deal and work superbly!.. the bottom holes lined up perfectly for this conversion so no added hold so it looks great and the top holes were close to top top edge of tuners and so I filled with mahogany and cherry finish brush tip touched up only and are gone now and it looks great too... better then the old days!...anyways onto the Vintage Gibson nickel Maestro Vibrola unit I installed is an excelent fit and really belongs on this fine 1960's correct Gibson SG Standard. Onto the JVG tone upgrade the Original Gibson USA Humbuckers sounded good before the upgrade but to get true classic vintage tone I had to change the cheap modern tiny nothing tone capasitors to the real .022 x400 Sprague Black Beauties used from about 1962 threw the 1960s vintage we offer these for $160 a set they are real 60's nos. early 1960's I use these to dial in our real vintage Gibson tone of the 1960's... This guitar NOW HAS the look - the feel & most importantly now the sound of my old friend my vintage 1966 Gibson SG Standard with its nickel hardware and slightly aged patina finish.. Everyone will think this is your real 1966 SG std... it can be your secret.IT comes with a no logo vintage case that has the old gold linning so it looks 60's correct....

This RARE example has its original GREAT sounding PAF replica pickups the very well praised ( X ) marked Pickups possibly the same pickups as Greco used back in the day Dry & Dry Z also highly respected . The All original hardware has that Aged R/59 vibe goin on with its vintage patina evident and while the frets show some wear, they have plenty of meat on them for years to come. The neck profile is very comfortable - somewhere in between a 59 and 60. Substantial but not overly chunky - certainly not a thinner 60's profile. Like some of these early MIJ LP's (including those from Greco, Burny, etc), L EXCELLENT SUSTAIN electronics are awesome - weight is 10.4 lbs . Here's a little history on the Tokai Les Paul Reborn: Les Paul Reborn Tokai produced a Les Paul replica guitar in Japan starting around 1976. These guitars were intended to be high-end instruments, not low-priced copies targeted at consumers in their home market. Tokai wanted the look and feel to be correct and these early replicas have wonderful fit and finish detailing. Wanting the headstock to look the same from ten feet away and desiring a designation that was appropriate, Tokai named this copy guitar 'Les Paul Reborn'. The 'Les Paul Reborn' was constructed using a one-piece mahogany body and two-piece, full-depth maple top. On the headstock, 'Tokai' is inlaid where 'Gibson' would normally be located. Instead of 'Les Paul' in script with 'MODEL' underneath, Tokai's silk-screen logo is 'Les Paul' in a similar looking Gibson script type, with 'REBORN' underneath. Several construction and parts features of these guitars include: single-line Kluson-like plastic tulip tuners, darker 50's style knobs, browned-out pick-up selector knob, thin binding in the cutaway, zebra or double-cream humbucker pickups, small style headstock, a truss rod cover that has 'Standard' engraved in script Shortly after the initial production runs, under pressure from Gibson, Tokai changed the name from 'Les Paul Reborn' to the 'Love Rock Model' THE SPECS Body: Two Piece Mahogany Back, Two Piece Solid Figured Maple Top Finish: Thin Poly Neck: Between 59 and 60 profile. Not too thick, not too thin. Very comfortable vintage feel with a correct 14 degree headstock angle. Fingerboard: Brazilian Rosewood Inlays: Cellulose nitrate / pearloid Frets: very good original /some minimal wear but in very good shape. Pickups: Original Tokai Paf Humbucking pickups (X stamped on back) Controls and Switch: Two tone, two volume with stock circuit board. Three way switch. Bridge: ABR-1 classic vintage Tune o Matic Color: 59 Burst / antique Cherry Sunburst Case/ optional purchase Condition: Guitar = upper percentile / very good-excellent Vintage 34 year old .
Here we have yet another fab top very realistic to the 1950's burst, together with our beautiful exotic rosewood fingerboards and out Cellulose nitrate old school inlays these, and a beautiful vintage Nitro Lacquer 50's BURST finish hand burnished and slightly - heavy aging of body and all parts including vintage abr-1 bridge 50's bumble bee caps.... you get the picture.

Here she is one of my favorite era Strat styles ever the 1969 this beauty built in the true flavor of the 1969 Summer of Love Jimi Hendrix era tone machine. This guitar gets her tone from Fenders Custom Shop Abigail signed initialed '69 Reissue pickups these are from my old stock that Abby signed her initials on...very cool start, then I use old stock tone Caps to capture realistic late 60s tone... This one get it good too folks very real mojo and "Jimi vibe" goin on. The body is accurate contour vintage correct and is 1-piece solid ash and is a wonderfully resonant body to begin with... the body was thin coat sealed and then I applied real 24k Gold Leaf to it.... then burnished that, aged ti and clear coated with 100% Nitrocellulose instrument Lacquer... the best!... it has the look and feel of 1969 if they ever made one like this back in the day. To top this off I joined this 24K Gold body creation with the most gorgeous neck possible an amazingly curly flamed to death native to Hawaii "Maui" KOA wood then I toped that off with an exotic richly grained Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and installed medium vintage frets!.... then I proceeded to aged its georgous pearloid pickguard and back plate to what you see here as you may notice not all parts are fully aged yet ( tuners & jack plate and a few bits and ends ) these pics are a dry run the guitar was fit with its parts and dialed in, next I take it apart again and aged the remaining parts and dial her all in / done results well please see for yourself. This custom Luthier build was a labor of love for me and a exciting guitar to build... I hope you like it... Let me know if you must have! All the best regards Joe
Update soon to come with fresh pictures when completed .
Here is another one of our custom designed and built guitars here in California USA and ready to order... Reborn Old style will have the feel and look of a 1960's US made classic.
This is our own proprietary paisley paper its based on the classic design your familiar with yet unique. Our 3-D Paisley is highly reflective to look amazing under lights on stage or off its metallic backed like the old school stuff and reflective... The sides are Gold leaf with the gold version and silver leaf with the red these will be lightly aged to mild Relic to replicate the look and feel of the 1969 era guitars of yesteryear ours are REBORN OLD the body's are premium 2 piece PINE and are nice and light weight and very resonant "Pine Caster" and lend them self's to a great vintage tone these bodys only are finished in Poly. The necks are 100% Nitroellulose Lacquer finished and tastefully tinted to replicate a correct finish for a 45 year old guitar from back in 1969 would look...I should know I have restored dozens of them and have used those skills to re-create the vibe feel and look and tone of the vintage guitars of yesteryear. Visualize the clear pickguard on with the paint around the neck pickup as per old school specs and under the guard the color stays as new then we custom tint the surrounding areas of the body to replicate 45 years time and your having that look now , then the tuners and hardware will be vintage correct all-aged nickel to continue the 69 vibe. I'm a big fan of the old 80's Vintage Japanese guitars as well as the US vintage guitars in my private collection and I have a great respect for what the greats from Japan were doing back in the early 80's with this in mind on this line and price point of Tele's I build I am using Japanese Gotoh hardware and vintage Tele pickups also by Gotoh... like an old 80s vintage Tokai Breezysound these Paislies will have a great and familiar classic tone. Other options may be available....

Here we had SORRY its been SOLD OUT! another RARE GREAT FIND this is the Highly Collectable Tokai Paisley Telecaster "Breezysound" The real deal folks Like Leo’s 60’s …. Tokai's L-plate era Version and is one of the very best ever re-creations of the Famous 1968 Paisley Telecaster many have fooled the so called knowledgeable. This fine example was manufactured in Japan in 1985 by Tokai Gakki in Japan. The body color and Paisley pattern is said to be exact and nearest to DEAD ON to the Original Fender Paisley Telecaster produced in Fullerton California by Leo Fender in 1968. This one is A REAL Collectors Dream! Yes this is the VERY RARE Tokai Paisley Tele... Tokai's version is so much more accurate in both Color and built to specs than the later 80's-90's and to date...released made in Japan Paisley teles versions from Fender Japan...This true Vintage Tele Plays so nicely it's action is so fast its really plays like a dream...your runs will just fly of the fretboard and the neck is a real nice Figured & Flamey AA Maple mid-sized SOFT V and this neck was freshly professionally re-fretted - excellent-like original like new condition ..The pickups and hardware to my knowledge are original and they have a nice patina natural aged look....just like the real 69' I love it! …The sound produced from this Tele is simply AWESOME+++::: The ash tray is included as well as what appears to be the original hard shell case...at this price.

Get her before she's gone. We brought this one in directly from Japan collection. The only disappointment is missing out on his rare collectible vintage Tokai.
Just released from the JVG Vintage vault we have a special build that I am very proud to present one of our own custom line STRAT style this is my Pro Journeyman level build. We went with the gold hardware on this unique quality instrument. Built to 1968 specs for the most part with the only exception of a tone chamber and weight relief as all rosewood guitars can end up 10-12 lbs in some cases not this beauty. I went with a set I have kept around since 1998 they sound amazing they are special 1960's wind with a blues in the bridge for a great sounding trio of pickups with all the classic tone of the real 68 Strat I also included a real vintage correct tone cap for vintage realism. The neck has the large
headstock and is a medium soft V profile feel and frets are 6105' frets are leveled - crowned & finely polished to glass the edges are slightly softened to feel like an old friend that you have played for years well broken in feel to it. The finish is top thin skin urethane same as I painted our Jaguar in highly hand polished this guitar has taken on a life of its own now it's a beautiful player. This one I have been enjoying since the beginning of the year it's been played some but not very heavily not gigged with its in very - good - excellent +++ condition
It comes with a black tolex hard shell case with the white piping Like the other guys

This accurate vintage 1981 Neck has been fully stripped of its old poly clear old tuner holes doweled - re-drilled for vintage Gotoh tuners, re-logoed, aged & funked up and the old fake looking plastic clay dot inlays I removed and then I aged real clay dots re-installed those you see now and finish is now 100% aged nitro lacquer I chose this neck because it looks like Brazilian rosewood and I liked it thats the reason I bought the guitar in the first place with this transformation in mind.... all nickel hardware has been aged to relic degree...( note: Pics taken before string trees were installed they arer on now) body is still pretty clean like closet classic and can be further reliced to taste if wanted. She's got a beautiful Olympic White finish and still looks killer after 33 years this is a true vintage guitar in its own right with the upgrades it beats most expensive Relics in the looks department and the tone from these fender Custom Shop pickups is very nice this is a good traveling gigmaster of a guitar Relic but not exactly road hard and put away wet or anything she's pretty cool and it will keep the folks guessing what the heck is he playing is that a real 64? ok you know it isnt but either is all the other CS relics... this blows them away too and is Priced right , here at JVGuitars.com

Just in = SOLD OUT!.... A beautiful Lats 1980s Greco Les Paul flame to standard in cherry burst just perfect ... love this guitar its a real player folks Greco make one of the finest if not the finest Les Paul copys ever... ahead of the curve the Japanes got the jump on the US manufactures to " Reissue" the old 50's style Les Pauls as they are clearly known to be the finest sounding and playing and looking ever built and while the US Gibson didn't think up on there own to make reissues it took 10 years of watching the likes of Tokai & Greco making these scary real vintage Les Paul Replicas ,,,, so from the Originater of Replics GRECO is one of the finest ever they make the V- the Paul - The RickenBacker The Strat, the Brian May, Gretsch copys and so on and on they make the high end De Angelico's in Japan The Zematis line, many others Greco is responsible Fugi Gen Gakki ... cousin to the great Ibanez... Here is a well thought example of the 1959 from its medium slim tape neck thats 1-11/16ths at the nut for a great feel... with a beautifully grained Rosewood fingerboard with the high end striking correct cellulose nitrate style Trapezoid inlays just like our Gibson Heritage 80 elite has.. looks like the real vintage deal! Its deep 50's Carve figured Maple top with correct vintage sized bindings somthing Gibson had a hard time getting right with some of their reissues...( did you know the Gibson Reissues from the early 80's I had collected a few and sold some and I had someone ask me about which pickups were in it and so I opened it up to find to my surprise was a short Tenon joint ) thats right the early Gibson Reissues was the 80-83 Heritahe 80 series and they are heavy and have short tenons..... when I saw that oh I digress the pickups were the Tim Shaw Paf's .. I guess they make up for the short tenon ...hahaha.... anyways when I saw the short tenon I had Greco and Tokais here that were Killer Real like Super Real and Reborn Old replicas... they sell for pretty big bucks to now days... anyways but you wount have to spend to much at JVGuitars for this Killer Les Paul....Pics and more info soon to come ..... Stay Tuned! Email joe about this Les Paul by Greco: firstname.lastname@example.org

Here we have a wonderful example of the vintage 1982 TOKAI Springy Sound 1964 Stratocaster in the classic perfect vintage 3Tone Sunburst
Just like the originals they copied WoW this guitar is kind of near minty and she is an oldie but a goodie folks!
This is one of Japan’s best Tokai’s masterful version of a 1964 Vintage Stratocaster according to Tokai its a Springy Sound and this is well know for its having been built just as close as it gets in detail to the real deal from 1964 they say.... I do actually own a real vintage Fender Strat from 1964 and a few from 66 as well as others so I know what a good start should sound like and play like and I must say The TOKAI Springys have always impressed me they are in my opinion among the best most accurate production reissue including some of those from the “Fen###” Custom shop I’ve had them as well. This baby is very cool with the deep carve sexy original body contour just like my real 64 THEY NAILED IT! This one’s body is Alder wood and is very resonant tone and sustain is excellent the grain is also cool looking with character just have a good look you’ll see . We added one of our realistic JVG vintage aged pickguard. Overall its super clean condition wow aged with patina yes very few minute insignificant nicks are hard to fine and see but it is a used played vintage guitar isn't it. Its been JVG set up to play like butta, we could dress and polish the frets and detail the guitar if you request additional but it plays absolutely great right now and doesn't really need that yet in my opinion and will leave that to the next proud owner. I see she has the original electronics too it and look like its never been apart before I opened her up to see what its equipped with and gladly it has the beautiful vintage correct black bobin pickups from 64 ( like MY 64 ) and my understanding is that DiMarzio actually made these for Tokai back in the day and the Gray bottoms were supplied by Semour Duncan back in 1980's... these old Black bottoms rock the house I love the sound and so will you!
I noticed the bridge saddles say Final Prospect. This has the big Tone block old school style too to contribute to its accurate 60s tone. Must check out this vintage Tokai Springy Sound Strat its amazing... just in and available Contact Joe’s Vintage Guitars to buy: firstname.lastname@example.org

Here we have a recent trade in and is a familiar vintage 1969 Strat Replica from the fine Matsumoku factory in Japan at the Memphis “ devision we have had quite a few of these old Japanese made Memphis guitars from the 1970s all were good Japanese replicas such as 335’s style we have had a few and Les Pauls al least 3 or 4 of those and even some top of the line Memphis Jazz box L-5’s you gotta see THAT one we have on our website under Hollowbody guitars these Memphis guitars. This example is an early to mid 1970’s guesstimated at 1973 from the original owners recollections. Anyway its in very good nick too overall pretty darn clean with just a few nicks or scratches yet overall very nice with the natural patina of a 45 year old guitar. Its Neck with that Iconic 1969 type of Hendrix headstock is strikingly cool one of my favorite strat era styles the “ Jimi” headstock we call it.
This guitar appears to be all original too and its electronics are untouched and are GOOD and strong SOUNDING without snap crackle and pop actually very good in that department as well
and true to vintage spec with its classic 3-way switch. Its neck as we mention is the Lawsuit big F headstock from 1969 and this vintage guitar is just about 3 years older we figure and is a true vintage guitar in its own right , its frets are good we leveled and dressed them the guitar is playing well and sounds good and looks good so what more can you ask for at under $400.00 for a genuine Japanese Matsumoku factory built start replicas from about 1973. Guitar comes with a gig bag to… a nice Japanese 69 start reissue type Vintage Guitar for under $400 you should snap this baby up before she’s gone.

1977 Ibanez Les Paul Custom Black Beauty Double Trouble vintage Japanese Electric Guitar SUPER 80s PAF’s ROCK MACHINE just in…
OK here is another Killer vintage Les Paul folks this one happens to have a very nice configuration with its old school lawsuit style headstock and its killer set of the classic Flying finger SUPER 80’s PAF type pickups this machine really ROCKS… big resonant tone like 1977 Bad Company tone this baby ROCKS! She plays great bends are effortless its fingerboard looks like Brazilian jacaranda rosewood and its inlays are vivid and is a striking image on stage. Plays like butta, she’s not new of course she is actually 40 years old Thats right hard to believe but true… so she has her share of minor dinks and doinks and nicks and such but no major stuff at all just normal for a well played and well loved and respected guitar….and it only adds to its very cool Vintage Vibe going on… its deep belly carve look is really classic Black Beauty these guyes at Hishino “Ibanez” factory really know what they were doing when they built these. As you may already know these Flying Finger Super 80’s are highly sought after these days some 40 years later they can go for upwards of $200 each as they are know for the excellent reproduction tonal qualities of the PAF’s from the US they actually were copying… Flying fingers from Ibanez were actually Ibanez’s answer to the period Gibson Paf’s “Sticky Fingers” that Gibby came out with but the Super 80’s sound better in MHO so needless to say the electronics on this guitar are above average as early stated THIS THING ROCKS!!! he neck on this guitar feels GREAT its a medium C profile and is multi bound as seen in pics nut is 1-11/16ths width and she as we mentioned has beautiful Block style inlays echoing the Classic 57 Black Beauty. This is the Double Trouble by Ibanez over 40 years ago… Pick up an oldie but a goodie Japanese Vintage Les Paul Custom Black Beauty. She will compete well tone for tone with guitars at 3x this price.
Let me know if you like it!
