All original 1992 Gibson ES-165 Herb Ellis guitar. Archtop jazz electro acoustic guitar. 175.

1992 Gibson ES-165 Herb Ellis guitar, all original. Original case. All in good condition.  Some signs of age to be expected on 25 year old guitar, but you can see them only if inspected up close. There is a small dent on the back of the neck that you can't see or feel at all when playing. Neck is straight and action is great. You can come and try/see the guitar of course.Great classic jazz sound especially with flatwounds strings the sound is sweet.  With roundwounds strings I used it with overdrive for blues recordings and for modern Gibson electric clean sounds. The guitar is far more versatile than what you might think.Really easy to play guitar, low action and slim fast neck.This is the original model with humbucker, volume and tone control. That is what makes it more versatile than the newer model with the floating pickup and no tone cotrol.The 1992 model is more like a 175 with only one pick-up. Selling because I am not playing much any more. This guitar is a very nice piece that is hard to let go. No time wasters please, only serious buyers. Sensible offers considered.Any questions please ask.
