Gibson M-3 Deluxe Electric Guitar 1992 – SOLD

Gibson M-3 Deluxe Electric Guitar 1992

Description

Well, here’s a very rare and very cool one!

Back in the late 80’s and early nineties Gibson produced some “un-Gibson like” guitars with pretty innovative and modern features.

This is one of them. A 1992 M-III Deluxe.

With the unique double cutaway shape, triple pickup configuration and Floyd Rose style trem system, this Gibson was quite different from the traditional models they are known for.

The Deluxe version of the M-3 is a limited edition produced between 1991 and 1992. It features a body consisting of 3 kinds of woods, Walnut, Poplar and Maple, as opposed to the Gibson M-III Standard which just had a Poplar body.

The pickups consisted of Gibson 500T, a Gibson NSX single coil and a Gibson 496R humbucker. In combination with the five-way switch and a two-way toggle this guitar can produce a total of nine different sounds. The two-way toggle flipped the neck and bridge pickups from humbucker to single coil mode. The 5 way switch also had a stand-by position for kill-switch effects.

The tremolo is a Gibson branded Schaller licensed Floyd Rose.

The tuners are also made by Schaller.

Condition of this vintage collectable is very good-excellent with only a few spots were the laquer has been eaten through, presumably when it was kept on a guitar stand (rubber will eat through nitrocellulose laquer finishes). These spots are on the bottom  and one on the back of the neck which is not real noticable when playing.

The pickups and electronics sound great and all function as they should.

Neck, frets and fretboard are in great shape with minimal wear and lots of life remaining. The original Gibson case is included and is in excellent shape as well.

This is a great sounding and playing guitar.

If you’re looking for something different yet super cool this is it!
