Cherry Sunburst, Serial # 895535.

The Barney Kessel model was introduced in 1961 with input from the famous jazz guitarist. Kessel was a well known stylist and sought after session musician who backed Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, and many others. His innovative guitar work and arranging for Julie London in the ‘50s established his ability to provide orchestral sounding accompaniment with only an electric guitar and upright bass. The Barney Kessel model came in two versions: the Regular (pictured) and the fancier Custom.
