The beloved ES-135! Beautiful with it's Florentine cutaway, a trapeze tailpiece, two P-100 pickups with two tone and volume controls and a three-way switch. It had looks and tone reminiscent of the old ES-125, but it is not a fully hollow thinline guitar. This baby has the feedback-suppressing sustain block running under the pickups and bridge from the neck/body joint to the base of the body like the ES-335.
Meticulously crafted, the body and neck were again of similar construction to the ES-335, being built from laminated maple but with an unbound rosewood 12" radius fingerboard. The C shape neck thickness measures in at 8.25" and 9.25" at the 1st and 12th fret respectively, with a nut width of 1 5/8". This one weighs in right at 8 lbs!
There are some small nicks and dings (see pictured) that you'd expect from a guitar of its age. Again, all cosmetic, none of it effects the playability whatsoever. But if you are looking for a museum piece, move on. This ain't it. This guitar was made to be played, not stared at.
This guitar rules. It just got off our bench and now has fresh, level frets and spot on intonation completed by our badass techs here in the shop. Don't let its looks deceive you. It can do the Jazz-box thing, but this baby can bark. The P-100s (6.1 N, 8.82 B) scream if you want them too.
We'll get this classic beauty shipped lightning fast in its original hardshell case promptly after payment. Don't sleep on this one!
