This is an excellent condition 1966 Gibson Barney Kessel signature model in cherry sunburst. It has a long scale (25 ½”) mahogany neck, larger Gibson headstock and Grover Tuners, with a rosewood fretboard and parallelogram inlays. The all maple body is completely hollow and is 3 inches thick. It is completely bound (except for the f-holes) and has a double Florentine cutaway which makes access to the upper register very easy. The bridge is made of rosewood and the tailpiece is a trapeze style with a Barney Kessel logo.


This guitar has just had a professional setup which keeps this collectible guitar playing like a dream. The overall condition of the guitar is excellent for a 40 year old guitar. It has some very small finish scratches and minor finish checking in different areas of the guitar, but after all, it's vintage. There is a small ¾” chip on the back left side of the headstock, but this in no way affects the playability or tone of the instrument.


This is a beatiful sounding guitar! It has the ability to go from warm mellow jazz tones to screaming sounding blues leads  all the way to serious rock sounds thanks to the original Gibson Patent Number pickups.  I have seen a number of these guitars come and go and have yet to see one in as good a condition as this one, and it includes the original Gibson guitar case.
No zero or negative feedback bidders please. Local pickup is available to anyone within the NY/ NJ area.
