Used Gibson & Epiphone Guitars

1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom at Pittsburgh Guitars

1979 Les Paul Custom
Wine Red finish, all original, made in USA, and quite clean for its years! It has a mahogany body with maple top, bound ebony fingerboard with pearloid block inlays, and two humbucking pickups with 3-way switching. Other features include a Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, tone and volume controls for each pickup, and and gold-plated hardware. This one has been well taken care of, with a reasonable amount of honest playwear, some small dings, light surface scratches, some belt buckle wear, and scuff marks. A previous owner put strap locks on at some point -- we have the other ends as well as the original buttons in the case. This guitar plays great and has a cool vibe, and comes with the original hard Gibson case which shows some wear -- the latches and hinges work and the handle is secure.

Other Used Electric Guitars

1956 Gretsch Duo Jet at Pittsburgh Guitars

1956 Gretsch Duo Jet
This exceptionally clean example of a vintage Gretsch Duo Jet came to us from a large collection of well cared-for guitars. It is 100% original, with a chambered mahogany body, 2 DeArmond pickups, a grey plastic pickguard, and “G” tailpiece. It has a Melita bridge, flat top arrow knobs, bound rosewood fingerboard with rectangular block inlays, and the Gretsch “T-roof” logo on the headstock.

1968 Rickenbacker 325 in Jetglo at Pittsburgh Guitars

1968 Rickenbacker 325 JG
This 3/4 scale Ric is about as Beatle-esque as you can get, made famous by John Lennon's use of the model. It features a thin, hollow, double-cutaway body, 3 pickups, 5 knobs, and a whole lot of mojo! It came to us with a poor, amateur refinish; we had it professionally redone, and looks beautiful. It has an added period Bigsby. All other parts are original with the exception of the bridge and bridgeplate. The fingerboard finish is cracked, and there is fret wear, but it still plays cleanly. The rest of it is a clean, glossy black! Price includes recent hard Ric case.
(picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 16 - 17 - 18)

1963 Rickenbacker 625 in Fireglo at Pittsburgh Guitars

1963 Rickenbacker 625 FG
A very cool solid-body electric from May of 1963, and one of only 70 made in Fireglo finish that year. This model features Rickenbacker's famous 'Cresting Wave' cutaway maple body, a rosewood fingerboard with iconic triangular pearloid inlay markers, and both mono and stereo output. It is almost all original -- finish, wiring harness (the pot codes date 1962 and 1963), even an early "Ac'cent by Paul" plate on the vibrato. We got it with HB1 pickups, used by Rickenbacker in the 380 Laguna and 650 models. We have replaced them with c.1990s Toaster pickups.  Additionally, we found an appropriate black switch tip, which was added after the pictures were taken. We'll include either or both with the guitar! This guitar is in very good condition, with loads of honest playwear. It has dings and scratches, and some bare wood in the places you would expect it. The fingerboard finish is worn, but the original small frets have plenty of life left. The pickup cavities were, at some point, routed for depth -- we have no explanation. And it is missing the bridge cover. The neck is straight and it plays even and easy. Overall, a great vintage Rickenbacker with a very cool vibe! Price includes what we belive to be the original hard case.
(picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 16 - 17 - 18 - 19 - 20 - 21 - 22 - 23 - 24 - 25 - 26)

The tone is bright and clear." It is in very good condition, with a number of scratches, dings, and finish chips, and some wear on the pickguard. Price includes a modern Supro hard case.

1965 Silvertone Model 1457 Amp-In-Case
Red Sparkleburst finish, made in the USA, with the amp-in-case! This model was made for a couple years in the mid-1960s, and was hugely popular in its day. And it is popular still! It has two lipstick pickups with stacked concentric knobs for tone and volume control for each, a rosewood fingerboard with dot markers, Dano-designed bridge, and the amp built right into the case. Everything is original, with the exception of the top half of one of the stacked knobs. And it all works exactly as it should! The guitar is in very good condition, with some scuffs and scratches and visible playwear, while there is very limited fretwear. The case shows some wear also; the latches and hinges work and the handle is secure, and everything works great! (picture - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12 - 13 - 14 - 15)
