Description: Electric Guitar - Gibson ES137 Custom Highly Flamed Front & Back "Mint"
Gibson ES137 Custom. Purchased for $2399.00 at the end of 2005, just a little over a year old and in MINT CONDITION. Incredible flame top and back. I am the original and only owner! NO FRETWARE AT ALL. The ES 137 Custom is a major step up from the Classic. It has an EBONY fretboard rather than Rosewood. It also has a LARGER bound headstock and a 6 position varitone and '57 Classic pickups. INCLUDES ORIGINAL GIBSON HARDSHELL CASE IN MINT CONDITION!! The guitar plays and sounds fantastic!!
Specs: Based on the ES-137 Classic, the Gibson ES-137 Custom Electric Guitar is the first Gibson archtop to employ a mahogany center block for reduced feedback and greater sustain. Other features are all Gibson deluxe: laminated curly maple body, binding on top and bottom, bound fingerboard, bound peghead, ebony fingerboard, split-diamond overlay headstock, pearloid split-diamond fingerboard inlays, 6-way Varitone switch that filters tone from fat to thin, and '57 Classic pickups (the original Gibson humbuckers from 1957). The magnets and 42-gauge enamel-coated wire are from the original suppliers and the pickups are built by Gibson on the original machinery.
