The Gibson ES-135 is a part of Gibson's
Electric-Spanish Collection, a line of guitars that the company began
manufacturing almost fifty years ago. You know that when a particular
guitar model has been around for that long, someone's doing something
right, and the 'proof is in the puddin'', so to speak--the ES-135 has consistently been a mainstay of the Gibson Guitar Company.
I am having to downsize my collection and stage gear. This one, unfortunately, is a guitar I'd love to keep over time but not being a collector I must part with it.
The ES-135 is a thinline electric archtop guitar with a
pointed cutaway at the treble bout. The back, sides and top are made of
laminated maple, with a chromyte block centerpiece, while the rounded
neck is maple, with a rosewood fingerboard and simple dot inlays. The
top and back come with single-ply white binding, and the Gibson
standard tune-o-matic bridge is complimented by a trapeze tailpiece.
All of the hardware on this instrument is chrome, this is a Memphis model in sunburst finish. It has two humbucking pickups and two volume and two tone controls. The three-way
toggle switch is located on the bass bout of the guitar.
The condition of the guitar is very good with minor wear on the pickguard and back. It plays and sounds great and is truly a timeless piece. I have found it to be capable at hard rock as well as blues and jazz. The case is in very good shape with minor wear. This is a great piece to add to a collection for a very reasonable price.
