‼Reduced‼ Gibson ES-5 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1949

The Gibson ES-5 appeared in 1949 and was the first ES – Electric Spanish – guitar with three pickups.   Originally equipped only with rotary pots for volume and tone controls, this model was revised in 1955 as the ES-5 Switchmaster.     Using a full size cutaway archtop body made with maple laminates for feedback rejection, the original ES-5 had individual volume controls and one master tone control.   Depending on the pot rotation, you could have all three pickups at any blend level.
