1971 Gibson Les Paul Custom With Msa Pedal Attachment, Rare One Of A Kind For Sale
Gibson Les Paul Custom with
Pedal Control attachment.
Les Paul [Serial #686339] is in real nice shape
and before all you vintage freaks, freak out, the MSA mod was done in
1979 before this instrument was considered vintage and/or important.
So take a deep breath and read about this very unique piece of guitar
guitar belongs to a prominent Los Angeles studio session player from Dallas,
Texas. He is retiring and selling many of the instruments that he no
longer has a call for. Being in Texas put him in the circle of
players that were doing a wide range of commercial music and Steel
Guitar was one of the more prominent flavors in the air. Maurice
Anderson and Tom Morell (of Dallas) created MSA Steel Guitars and
were crazy enough to develop this pedal system for six-string guitar.
Phil Baugh was an early adopter and can be heard on George Jones “HE
STOPPED LOVING HER TODAY” and “IF DRINKING DON'T KILL ME, HER
MEMORY WILL” playing his modified instrument. Here is a link that
features Phil playing his MSA modified Peavey :
Gibson Les Paul Custom is the only one like it in the world that has
this MSA attachment, that Maurice Anderson personally installed in
1979 [may've been 1980]. There were 24 more installed on Peavey
guitars, but only the first one of those was sold [for $10,000] to
the Austin, Texas friend of Reese who coerced him into developing
this MSA unit. The others were never sold, because they were locked
up in a warehouse in receivership,as MSA went bankrupt, & the
Peavey's were never seen again as far as I know [this might have
changed, since MSA re-emerged from bankruptcy about a decade ago].
There was also a Gibson L-5s modified for Phil Baugh.
Here is a link to a discussion about this
only other mods on this Les Paul are coil taps & a phase switch,
for more sound variety, since it was never gonna sell as "original"
MSA attachment comes off or goes on in ten seconds with thumb screws, &
it stays in tune, unlike the permanently attached precursor that
Reese made for Phil Baugh, 40 some odd years ago, for his fender
Jazzmaster. The six pedalscan be adjusted to vary pitch on
each string, individually, anywhere from a half step to 6 half
depending on which end of the levers on back of the guitar you
attach the string to [pretty ingenious].
