Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this 2002 Gibson ES-165 Herb Ellis Signature Archtop Guitar with a Cherry Red Finish! The Gibson Herb Ellis model was introduced in 1991 as a tribute to the celebrated player, and it’s been one of Gibson’s most popular jazz guitars ever since. The design harks back to the original 1949 ES-175, which was fitted with a single pickup until 1951. By 1971 the single pickup 175 was discontinued altogether, making the originals highly prized by jazz purists. The guitar has all-gold hardware and the arched maple body shows handsome tiger flame. The mahogany neck produces an instrument that is notably well balanced and with fine medium jumbo frets, the fingerboard is utterly effortless to play. The 24 3/4″ scale is fast and nimble, the floating pickup is fat and sweet, and the 16″ body is easy to cradle and substantially resistant to feedback. MINTY Shape with some hardware fade/ tarnish and a few tiny indents on the body, easy 9.7/10! Has Strap Locks. NO Breaks, Cracks or Repairs. All of our guitars are fitted with a fresh set of our favorite strings by Stringjoy! Includes an Original Hard-Shell Case and a Free Sample of Fret-Not, our favorite fretboard cleaner out there, check it out at fretnot.net!
