What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good (small, stable crack in the tailpiece, pictured)

We've always had a deep appreciation for the old ES-100-series Gibsons. The early ES-series has a certain mournful tonal quality that you can't help but love. String it up with flatwounds and a nice, clean amp and you have a masterful, soulful jazz guitar. String it with roundwounds and a cranked low-wattage amp and you have a blistering blues machine.

About Manufacturer

Today's Gibson electric guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar. The models whose designs have become classics-the ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, SGs and Les Pauls-are a testament to Gibson's wide appeal, spanning more than four decades of music styles. Gibson's close relationship with musicians is manifest in endorsement models from King, Atkins and jazz greats Howard Roberts and Herb Ellis, plus new Les Pauls made to the personal specifications of rock stars Jimmy Page and Joe Perry. In 1994, Gibson's Centennial year, the new Nighthawk model won an industry award for design, setting the stage for a second hundred years of Gibson quality and innovation.
