With this immaculate recreation of one of the earliest mass-produced solid body guitars, the Gibson Custom Shop proves that sticking to their rich tradition never fails. Two P90 pickups and a wraparound tailpiece sunk into Mahogany and Maple creates a stunning array of shimmering harmonics and rich, round bass. The sustain on this guitar is exceptional with notes at the 10th-14th fret ringing out unimpeded for as much as 10 seconds- not even plugged into an amp. This is a guitar that you can really feel in the belly from its resonance. And, moreover feel in your cheeks! Because this one will make you smile every time you pick it up.

This one has been lovingly played with minor wear visible throughout the guitar. As we say- this is the type of aging you typically pay extra for! No unsightly chips or dents or cracks- just honest scars from a working life. That said the frets are in fantastic shape; tall, crowned, and smooth on bends. From fret 1-22, the guitar is a real charmer. The neck has that perfect 50's heft and feels comfortable for our varied hand sizes here at the shop; it excels at fast leads and steadfast barring. That said we all wish one of us could take this one home- but you can't just buy every great guitar that comes through! This one will be a dreamboat for many of you- and the lucky future owner of this guitar will undoubtedly share many, many joyful and hard working hours with this beautiful companion.
