Notes: The ES-137 Custom is an unusually versatile instrument, offering a broad palette of tonal colors, in a design that accomodates a wide range of volume levels without feedback. A fusion of classic styles, the ES-137 has the 16" width of the classic ES-175, with the slimmer body depth of the legendary Byrdland. The internal construction offers increased sustain and superior feedback resistance, with an internal sound block as found in the immortal ES-335. The twin '57 Classic pickups are built with the same wire, magnets and winders as the original late 50's PAFs, and the 6 way Varitone tone switch and is reminiscent of the ES-345 and 355. Finally, the tiger flame maple body echoes the coveted Les Paul Standard. and its gold hardware and solid ebony fingerboard, borrows some art-deco styling from the majestic Super 400.
This handsome example is in superb 100% original condition, and has smooth low action over freshly dressed medium jumbo fretwork. The sum of many parts, the ES-137 Custom remains one of the most versatile guitars Gibson ever produced, equally at home with smoking bebop as downhome blues.
Case: Original black Gibson plush hardshell case.
