| Up for bids today is a brand new 2016 Gibson Midtown Standard model. I got this guitar as a back-up to my tobacco Midtown, but it's been so reliable that I never needed to use this one as a backup. :-) Barely played, in mint condition. The guitar has been professionally set up by my long time luthier so the action is down on the neck and the intonation is spot-on. The strings are wrapped over-top of the tailpiece, just because that's just how I like them for a little less string tension. This has the Grover tuners, not the weird E-tune contraption that some of these came with. The gloss black finish is so shiny it was impossible to get a picture of it that didn't have some sort of overhead lighting reflected in it, so anything you see in the pics that looks like a finish blemish, be assured that it's just the light reflected on the finish...the guitar looks like a piece of black glass. :-) The cool feature of these Midtown models is that they're sort of the best of all worlds: The bite of a Les Paul, the "woodiness" of semi-hollow body, the slim, fast neck of an SG and the classic look of a 335. You can't go wrong! :-) The body and neck binding are a classic touch, and the mother of pearl dots (not cheap plastic) give it a classy look. This guitar never left the house...it was simply a back-up to my main Midtown. If it were any other time of year, I'd probably just hold on to it, but I could use a little spare cash for Xmas gifts, so we'll see how she does in an auction. LOW reserve, but if she doesn't make the reserve price, that'll be my "sign" that I'm meant to keep it. :-) Guitar is for sale locally as well, so I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. Payment is due within 24 hours of end of auction, and I will ship within 24 hours of payment. Free shipping with Buy It Now ONLY. Guitar will be professionally packed and insured. Please feel free to email with any questions. Give this killer guitar a good home!!
