Eastern Bloc Beauty

Well, maybe beauty is subjective but I think the late 50’s Marma guitars were pretty cool in a funky, penguin-hit-by-lightning kind of way.
And so does Eastwood guitars, apparently. They’re trying to get enough interest to build a modernized version with modern upgrades like a pair of Chrome P-90’s and a Jazzmaster style tremolo with adjustable roller bridge.
Get on board now!

John Lennon Les Paul

How about a Gibson Custom Shop ‘Inpired By’ John Lennon Les Paul?
One of only 300 made in 2007, it’s a reproduction of the modified 1950s Les Paul Junior Lennon played at his unforgettable performance on August 30, 1972 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

1959 Country Gentleman

Get your Chet on with this 1959 Gretsch Country Gentleman. More of a player’s guitar after a refinish and refret this one is still a beauty.

Duo Jet Penguin

It’s a Duo Jet. It’s a Penguin. It’s a combination Duo Jet, Penguin.
What happens when you take the coolest headstock in all of guitardom and stab it onto a 1968 Gretsch Duo Jet?
You get one of these. The neck and finish put together by Dan Johnson, the guitar tech for the Black Keys band with Mark Axe doing the wiring and set up work.
