The DEALS page is back!!!
If you are looking to buy or sell a Gibson chambered-reissue that has a "CR" serial number check out the DEALS page. With the climbing costs of listing on auction sites and the fees involved with the auctions and payment sites, the DEALS site is the place to use because it is free. There are over a thousand different individuals per day that check the chambered-reissue.org site and once the word is out, that number will increase. This free service to "CR" owners and makes no money for Chambered-Reissue.org. This site is purely non-profit and a hobby to promote the great Gibson Chambered Reissue guitars.
At the Gibson Custom Shop's Summer Jam 2007 they were discussing the chambered-reissues . Since 2004, Gibson has not advertised them but now the 58's are listed. Check them out. Ed King (Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist and author of "Sweet Home Alabama") came by to look at Les Pauls and decided that out of all the Les Pauls he has tried over the years, that a chambered sounded closer to his original 59 Les Paul than any solid body Les Paul.
This is one of my greatest moments when I got to meet Ed King.
Another great BOTB moment (below) Edwin Wilson, myself, and Yasuhiko Iwanade
I got to meet one of the guys that got me interested in Les Paul Guitars At Summer Jam 2011

"Great sounding guitar with lot's of sustain, warm woody tone, not too dark. Wonderful harmonically rich feedback through a hot Marshall."---Steve Domenico
Take it from a Pro.... Jimmy Allen from "Puddle of Mudd" says: ""1958 VOS CHAMBERED LES PAUL NICE VINTAGE LOOK .VERY CORRECT LOOKING. THIS ONE IS STOCK,DIDNT NEED TO CHANGE A THING. ITS ALL THERE. THESE VOS GUITARS SOUND AND FEEL INSANE, NOTES JUMP OUT AND BLOSSOM EVEN WHEN ITS UNPLUGGED. SOUND IS MUCH SWEETER THIS TIME I THINK, MAYBE BECAUSE OF THIN SKIN FINISH. THE FEEL,THE TONE, THE LOOK. NAILED IT THIS TIME!!!! "
