Now discontinued, this Gibson R7 LPB-3 1957 Reissue with Bigsby in exceptional condition, having remained mainly within its case throughout its ownership. There are no marks to note on the body, and the hardware itself is pristine, putting this guitar as collector's condition. The guitar is being sold by a very good customer of ours' who has taken very good care of it and this poses an excellent chance to own a collectible and now-discontinued example of the R7 LPB-3 which belies its age. 

They don't call this guitar a black beauty for nothing...The eclectic combination of a high-gloss black finish, gold hardware and cream pinstripe binding throughout the guitar truly is a sight to behold. This highly desirable model is now out of production and the addition of a Bigsby tremolo makes this guitar all the rarer.

Gibson Guitars are known throughout the world for their high end guitars of which the most famous would be the ‘Les Paul’. Gibson guitars get better with age and it is these vintage and second hand guitars that we have here at Toneworld. These mature Gibson guitars are of excellent quality, great sounding and have much more playing life to offer.

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
