What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

A veritable titan of tone!  If you can hang with the lap/strap-load, this 137 is capable of some truly breathtaking colors and moods that range from 100% straight ahead Jazz to any of the various directions in the Blues/Funk/R&B fields.  Really remarkable sustain, near impervious to feedback even at higher volumes and a notably organic, warm voice for an all-laminate axe.  A lovable beast if ever there was one!

Manufacturer's Description from Gibson Guitars

Based on the ES-137 Classic, the Gibson ES-137 Custom Electric Guitar is the first Gibson archtop to employ a mahogany center block for reduced feedback and greater sustain.

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.
