Stunning beautiful 1949 vintage early Gibson ES-5 sunburst with three exquisite P-90 pickups. The quilted top and back have moderate finish checking to be expected from a guitar this age. Played unplugged or through an amp this guitar sounds rich, amazing and bold with those round bell like tones you want from a jazz guitar and all the versatility you seek for blues and eclectic music. Neck feels lovely, well worn on the back, and the frets are in good condition with plenty of life. Overall in excellent condition, with an incredible vibe.The hard shell case is quite beaten up and I have covered up the damaged handle with cloth for protection. Happy to provide more photos. Ideally for local pickup in London, or can ship insured.I am very sorry to part with this, but need to reduce my 20 guitar collection to just a few instruments I would play regularly.
