For sale is a 1978 Gibson Marauder. These are unique guitars and are getting harder to find. The Marauder has a contoured single cut away Les Paul shaped body and a bolt on 22 fret maple neck with a headstock similar to the Flying V. The Marauder features custom design Bill Lawrence pickups sealed in clear epoxy. The guitar has a regular sized humbucker pickup in the neck position and a small humbucker in a blade style resembling a single coil, which was mounted at an angle in the bridge position. The guitar features a solid mahogany body and a single volume and tone control and has a rotary potentiometer with a chickenhead knob instead of a three way switch. This allows a range of blends between the two pickups which allows many more tonal options than a three way switch.  It has a standard Gibson stopbar tail piece and a Schaller made harmonica tune-o-matic style bridge. It has the original engraved Gibson tuners. The neck is a 24.75 inch scale and has just been refretted, so you don't have to worry about any fret wear. The only thing that has been changed on this guitar is the frets, everything else is original. This guitar comes with a very nice hardshell case.
