The only thing that stops me from describing it as mint is the beginnings of some very very light natural lacquer checking here and there on the body - nothing that you can see without searching for it. There is also some lacquer checking around some of the tuning pegs as you can see in the picture and a tiny bit of lacquer chipped off the neck - but that is it! There is no fret wear and all of the hardware is in excellent condition.The biggest thing that this guitar has going for it is the fact that it sound absolutely brilliant - you'll know the moment you plug it in! The guitar weighs 8 pounds 8 ounces and the neck profile is pretty slim - along the lines of a 60's profile Les Paul. It's just had a full setup and is playing beautifully.
The original case has done its job well so has a few knocks and bashes but is fully functional although the combination lock has been removed at some point. So, all in all a truly wonderful guitar - I know that the new owner is going to love it! Please be aware that this is an uninsured service but it is tracked. You can be confident that I pack guitars very well indeed - the guitar is packed inside the case so that it cannot move and with plenty of support for the neck and headstock. The case is then packed into a large cardboard box and the box is packed and padded out with more cardboard, matting and large bubble wrap so that the guitar is fully protected inside.The item "Gibson ES135 in Vintage Sunburst 2003 Amazing Condition and a Great Guitar" is in sale since Friday, December 6, 2019.
