A selection of electric guitars entering their seventh decade.

1958 Les Paul Goldtop
This gold beauty belongs to Ray Bellizia of Whirlwind Music Distributors. Ray bought the guitar in 1974 from a butcher shop. Two years later, it was snatched from the stage during a break in the set at a show, but was recovered after security chased the perpetrator for several blocks. Only the tuners and jack plate have been replaced. To learn more about this guitar, please visit www.whirlwindusa.com/vintage.html
