|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!
