The Gibson es-135 model has been out of production for several years now. This particular variant with dual P-100 pickups is highly sought after for it's excellent playability and killer tone. [ Think vintage P-90 semi-hollow body but with less noise and hum ] This example plays great and sounds exceptional. It is approaching its 20th birthday and is starting to age nicely from years of being played. It has some dullness to the finish as well as clear coat checking, and a few dings. It shows honest play wear and a real cool "road worn" appearance and vibe that you just can't get with a new guitar. Perfect instrument for the gigging musician. Includes an after-market hard shell case.
