Gibson ES-135 EB 1
View Detail
2002 Gibson ES-135 EB Guitar 'Sold'

     Exc(-) condition. Ebony black finish. As an interesting point, this guitar comes with papers officially from Gibson variously describing this guitar as an "ES-345" and an "ES-35", even though it absolutely is a stock ES-135. And, all these same papers (label, warranty card, inspection papers, etc), all have the correct serial number that matches the back of peghead and label, etc.
      No fret wear at all. This instrument is really in nice condition, but it does have one repair on back that is hard to spot. There was a slight clean crack in the outer ply of the back. Our local luthier, George Weisel, did a really great job of repairing it and blending the finish so that there is no sign of the repair at all, except a slight deflection of light when looking directly at it - we'll make sure to make one or two photos that show you what we mean. Many stores would omit this information about the repair, because it was done so well that it truly is a 'non-issue'.
     24 3/4" scale length. Semi-hollowbody, with block of wood running thru body. Two 'P-100' pickups (stacked double-coil humbucking). Trapeze tailpiece and tune-a-matic bridge. Kluson-style "Gibson DeLuxe" tuners with tulip buttons.
     This is a very nice example of a semi-hollowbody guitar. You can play this guitar acoustically and get great sound. It is very resonant. The set-up is great, with nice low action and everything works great.

1957 Gibson Super 400 CES Guitar 'Sold'

     Exc(-) condition. Beautiful look and feel. This guitar has been played faithfully for its life by one of Montana's foremost jazz musicians. Everything is original except the finish. The guitar was sent to Gibson in about 1969/70 for total re-finish. The finish is great and it is hard to tell it was a re-finish job... The sunburst is just beautiful. Binding is showing some shrinkage inside cutaway at the juncture of back and side.
     Original wiring harness, Alnico V pickups, knobs and hardware. Figured Maple back, sides and neck, with Spruce top. As with all Super 400's, it has multiple bindings everywhere - top, back, fingerboard, headstock, f-holes and pickguard. 
    There aren't many dings on this guitar, just a few sprinkled here and there. There is one compression mark in the Spruce top between bass-side f-hole, tailpiece and bridge. This mark was probably why the guitar was refinished - it is under the 1969 re-finish. The set-up is great and the guitar sounds like a true champion.
