1956 Gibson ES-135
Hard to find model - Sunburst
Renamed from ES-130; EX Plus condition w/ light finish checking; Recently setup, plys AWESOME! Back of neck was oversprayed and is smooth as silk now, so please ignore the picture with the capo marks; tuner keys are new Grover Deluxes,which hold tune much better than original strip tuners; in a non-original soft case; single P-90; trapezoid inlay, 5-ply PG and bound neck make this a 135; Smaller body than an ES150, but with same nicer appointments; Only 556 of these were made, 211 in ’56 (actually quite rare and undervalued) Only made from ’56 ’ ’58 COOL COOL COOL. It plays like a dream and has awesome acoustic resonance. Could be an amazing jazz player with heavier gauge flats.
Price: $2200 (USD)
