Notes: Steeped in tradition, the Gibson Co. often tinkers with established models, but only rarely issues guitars of entirely new design, especially in its venerable archtop line. Which is why we were intrigued when the firm recently released this innovative guitar, a unique blend of classic features in a striking new package. The single cutaway thinline design is reminiscent of the legendary ES-350, but trimmed to a compact 15" width for greater comfort on the bandstand. The solid C profile neck with the full 22 frets is a tribute to the 50's Les Paul, with its rosewood fingerboard trimmed in rolled binding for superlative comfort. Finally, the unpotted Alnico II and III MHS humbuckers, designed for maximum clarity and detail, are fanatically faithful to Gibson's very earliest PAF pickups.

The hollow soundchamber is supported with quartersawn Adirondack spruce braces for an airy tone and pleasingly light weight: at an comfy 6lb 3oz. this guitar balances effortlessly on the lap or the strap for the longest gig. With smooth low action over a fresh high-precision setup, this guitar offers a solid traditional neck feel, and greater access to the upper fingerboard than any previous Gibson archtop.

A special plus, the guitar is supplied with a set of custom fitted foam f-hole plugs, for enhanced feedback resistance at higher volumes. Complete with its original case, tags, paperwork, and Certificate of Authenticity, this thoughtfully designed model is Gibson's newest gift to the performing guitarist, at an unbeatable price. In showroom condition, one only, call now.

The instrument is strung with light gauge nickel roundwound strings (.011) and may be strung with lighter or heavier strings as desired.
