Gibson 1955 ES-135 Serial Number w7417-20 Yes that right they did make a model for a few years in th fifty's that was a ES-135.
I have only seen one other ever.It is an upgrade from a ES-125 with bound neck,fancy neck inlays, an a upgrade pick guard.
This came to me from a family that had had it for most of it's life. Original except for tulip tunes changed in the 1960's. Ther are no cracks, repairs and the neck is straight.There is wear on the frets from honest playing all the way up the neck. No buzzing. It comes in a vintage Epiphone case.This is a unique great old Gibson guitar.
