2004 Gustavsson Bluesmaster w 1958 Gibson P90s :  One of 1st Bluesmasters in USA
Description:

2004 Johan Gustavsson Bluesmaster.  YES this is one that came JUST after the famed “Wildwood 5”.  I have hoarded this in my collection for many years.  I just don’t play it.  I had a set of VINTAGE 1958ish GIBSON P90s professionally installed (YES, the original pickups are in the case).   This is as close as you will get to a vintage guitar.

THE FIRST Gustavsson Goldtop in the US.  This is also the FIRST Gustavsson to feature a 1-piece Honduran Mahogany Back.  As you can see from the Spec/Condition Sheet & pictures this instrument is in Excellent Condition.  It has been lovingly cared for and not gigged.

Tonally this guitar will blow you away.  Beautiful slightly glassy yet warm and full Gibson P90 tone….only the vintage P90s capture this..and THIS set was sold to me by an author renowned for reviews of high end gear.  I have found that this set of pickups does not squeal like so many of the vintage P90s I’ve encountered..no promises in your rig but in my vintage Marshall & Hiwatt it was freaking sick sounding.  THICK with that glassy top like an old Strat. You can get the growl you lust for. The JG shape also takes a touch of that “woofiness” out of the equation.

Yeah this has a Brazilian Rosewood Board.  The guitar is lightly chambered (Thus the upper-7-pound weight).  It somes with a form fit tweed case.  Not certain if it’s original but it’s high quality and clean.

You can get a later JG with P90s but the SUPER early ones like these command a huge premium.  Add in the vintage pickups, condition and the fact it came from my personal collection…and you are grabbing something that was truly handpicked by someone who has owned everything modern & can keep anything I want.  I have VERY few guitars that make the cut into my collection.

Why am I selling it?  Simple…..just found I have fallen in love with Teles and really just have not played it.  I have a stupid rule about adding when I sell.  I got a ’51 Nocaster so this will go.  Keeps me honest.
