Gibson ES-135 Tobacco Burst 2001 (Consignment) SOLD





Comments Here’s a lovely Gibson ES-135 Tobacco Burst, built during 2001 in Memphis, Tennessee.

The ES-135 was originally built from 1956 to 1958, and then again from 1999 to 2002. Some models had P-100 pickups — stacked, humbucking versions of the P-90 – and others, like this one, featured standard humbuckers.

This example is in near mint condition. It has an interesting quirk – the label identifies it as an ES-335!

Serial Number 02331685. Built August 21 2001 in Memphis, Tennessee, USA.
Pricing $1400 CAD including original case.
Neck Maple neck with unbound rosewood fingerboard. Gold Gibson decal and ES-135 logo on headstock; ‘Memphis’ decal on back of head. 24.75″ scale length.
Frets Original frets with minimal wear.
Body Florentine cutaway body, similar in shape to the ES-175, but thinner and with a solid center block. The block dramatically reduces any tendency to feedback at volume, and allows the use of a fixed Tune-O-Matic bridge.
Finish Gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, tobacco sunburst, in excellent condition.
Hardware/electronics Nickel Grover gears, trapeze tailpiece, tune-o-matic bridge, two Classic 57 humbucking pickups, pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls.
Playability/Action Plays very well.
Case Original Gibson brown case with pink lining and protective inner cover.
