Les Paul

Find the word “Iconic” in the dictionary and beside it should be a photo of the Gibson Les Paul. Conceived in the early 50’s and raised on rock & roll the classic Les Paul design blazed a trail though the ever changing musical landscape of the 60’s and cemented its place in history as the instrument of choice for fresh faced players and rock stars alike.

The ES-335 is arguably one of the most popular electric semi-hollow body designs around. Designed in 1958, the 335 hasn’t changed very much – with it’s solid maple block in the center and 2 hollow wings on either side, this instrument offers sustain, resonance and clarity when played both amplified and acoustically. It is without question a classy guitar – with the look, feel, and sound complimenting a multitude of musical styles.

Notable Players; Chuck Berry, Larry Carlton, Eric Clapton, B. B. King, Chuck Brown, and Alex Lifeson.


  • Equipped with high quality humbucking pickups, the tone is a versatile blend of classic and modern.
  • Being a semi-hollow guitar, the ES-335 produces more volume than a traditional solid body instrument when played acoustically.
  • Another benefit of the semi-hollow construction is the tonal warmth associated with the more resonant body


The SJ-200 is an absolute beast among Gibson acoustics so it’s no surprise that it has been coined “the king of the flat-top”. Its jumbo body design explodes with volume giving players increased output and richness when compared against similar jumbo body guitars. Since 1937, the  SJ-200 has been one of the most popular guitars in Gibson’s acoustic lineup.

Notable Players; Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, Elvis Presley


  • The flame maple back and sides add top end to what would normally be a low frequency instrument.
  • The solid sitka spruce top adds sustain and balance.
  • Equipped with the L.R Baggs anthem, this guitar sounds just as good plugged in as it does acoustically.

The SJ-200 is among one of the must haves for any flat top acoustic player for any style of music. Plus – it’s not exactly hard to look at!

“Thank you The Arts Music Store for making my 50th b-day present experience a great one. Thank you for giving a care and for your amicable character and professionalism expressed to me and my wife. Can’t say enough about all o’ this. These guys are the best. Their product line-up is downright sexy and I think the fact that my wife also picked up a pink ukulele at the same time just made it even more fun than we could have hoped for. Thanks ‘The Arts Music Store’ — you rock!”

“My son and I have taken up guitar this year and we have visited a few of the popular music shops in the GTA in search of the right gear to get started with. The Arts staff have consistently provided us with exceptional service and a ton of great advice without the pushy sales approach of some of the other shops.
Great service and fantastic products!”
