1979

"GK-55"

1 OF 1000 MADE

Hi and thanks for looking.This is a very cool guitar made by Gibson during 1979 at the Kalamazoo plant.There are NO cracks,breaks or repairs to this guitar.It is all original except one replaced screw on the input jack plate and maybe the bridge.The bridge looks right and fits perfectly.However,around this time Gibson used Gotoh bridges from time to time.This bridge is stamped Japan on the bottom.I don't know if this is original or not.Again,it looks right,fits perfectly and adjusts correctly.Everything works as it should on this guitar.This is a very nice guitar that is 1 of 1000.Keep in mind  this is a vintage guitar and was a limited run model before all the companies started making limited runs at the rate of about 1 run per week adding up to millions of guitars.The guitar was designed to be a LesPaul Special but with hotter pickups and a bolt neck.The model name GK refers to Gibson/Kalamazoo.This guitar retains its original hot "Dirty Finger"pickups that have been reissued in recent years after some major players began using the originals.The Dirty Finger was designed to go head to head with "D" Super Distortions.These are some of my favorite pickups.Also,I love the neck profiles on Gibson guitars from this time.The neck is somewhere between SG and Les Paul in shape.It feels good.This guitar was played in clubs for years and although it has been cleaned,it retains a smoky haze.It has a classic relic vibe that a lot of players are looking for and paying a premium price.There is arm wear through the finish where your arm would rest and finger wear under the lead pickup where you would rest your pinky.It has a lot of small nicks and dings.The only notable thing to mention is that while the guitar plays great for me,the frets are grooved.There is enough fret height left to level them if it bothers you but it would leave the frets quick and low.Either way,if you require full frets,keep that in mind when bidding.Please see photos and click enlarge.The mahogany used on the guitar gives it a very nice warm woody tone.Combined with these pickups,it is easy to see why it has been played regularly and why collectors and players are grabbing them up.They are a bargain compared to other 70's Gibsons.The guitar comes with the SKB case in the photos.Priced fairly with a Buy It Now to guarantee that you are the High Bidder.
