What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good (considerable finish checking, some deeper dings/scars visible, scratching, play wear)

Every now and again we'll receive a guitar that completely blows our minds and reminds us just why we fell in love with guitars. This is one of those guitars! Unplugged, we were floored by the playability, the flatwound strings feel so good! The real magic came after we plugged it in. The neck pickup, with the tone at around half, produced the warmest, smoothest tones we've heard in quite a while. The bridge pickup has a brightness that's not in the least bit harsh. This guitar is practically begging for some hip octave lines! 

This is a true piece of history, color me impressed!

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.
