    1980 Marauder with the blender pickup selector. The "Tele Killer" that was never meant to be.

    Re: Show your unusual Gibson !

    Before I joined this forum I had never heard of a "Harmonica" bridge.

    We always called them a Marauder bridge.

    More info, please.
    Where did it come from, who originally owned it, who has it now... double whites, neck size, tone report, ... etc.

    Came from Chicago, no idea who originally owned it. Same FON as the first rack 335's, and has some of those unique first rack characteristics, although it as born a 335. Black PAFs, original to the guitar. Neck is standard 59. Tone is at the "rock" end of 335s rather than the "blues" end.

    Re: Show your unusual Gibson !

    Looks pretty fabulous...what is it? Not a reissue I guess, I don't see the strap button in the side of the neck, but it has an ABR, so is it from the late 70s/80s?
    - 2006 Les Paul Historic R4 Oxblood
    - 2012 ES-330TDVB
    - 1995 Les Paul Studio Ebony with B7 Bigsby

    Its actually a 2006 that was refinished and upgraded by vintage relic. I bought it like this because it stood out but itís really one of the best in my arsenal. Itís tonal capacity is compelling. I havenít changed anything on it since Iíve owned it because it sounds and plays great.

    1979 Explorer E2. Possibly a Kalamazoo special order.

    "Unusual" as in an odd color? or rare? I need a bigger screen :-)
