  • ES-350 Tenor, '55

    Natural, Serial # A5824. As the Jazz Age matured in the 1930’s, the loud rhythmic pulse of the banjo gave way to silky even tones of the archtop guitar. The… READ MORE

  • ES-150 '69

    Natural, These look a lot like an ES-335, but they are completely hollow and much thicker. These never really did catch on in the vintage market, but I’ve always been… READ MORE

  • ES-355 '65

    Sparkling Burgundy, The face has faded to an interesting gold color! Some nasty Gibson/Schaller tuners installed, but since the damage was already done, I left them alone.

  • ES-355 '60

    Cherry, Serial #A32582. A very clean example with just a bit of gold plating wear.

  • ES-345, '64

    Sunburst, Serial # 176409.

  • ES-345 '60

    Cherry, Serial #A34224. The color has faded nicely on this one. A nice early ’60 with the long guard and clear knobs.

  • ES-345 '59

    Sunburst, Serial #A31007. The gold plating is a bit worn and the tuners are starting to shrivel up, but this is a great guitar. I love the late 50’s/early 60’s… READ MORE

  • EH-150, Late '30s

    Sunburst.

  • Prototype Bass, Mid 70's

    Cherry Sunburst, I’ve never seen another one like this and probably for a good reason! It is an odd duck, that’s for sure!

  • Map Guitar '84

    Natural, Kind of a silly thing. I think these were mostly meant as a promotional item, but this guitar gets some of the most attention of anything in the collection… READ MORE

  • ES-340TD, Early 70's

  • ES-335TD, ’67

    Pelham Blue, Serial # 871604. Gibson’s legendary double cutaway thinline, the ES-335, was introduced in 1958. Its classic elegant design is still a favorite today, and has been often imitated…. READ MORE

  • ES-335, '67

    Sparkling Burgundy, Serial # 170009. This guitar is weird not just because of the color, but because it has split parallelogram fingerboard inlays like an ES-345.

  • ES-295, '53

    Sunburst, Serial # A15572. The Gibson ES-295 was introduced in 1952 as the full sized hollow body complement to the solid body Les Paul Model also debuting that year.  While… READ MORE
