In keeping with the desires of many players, the Gibson Custom Shop offers the finest original-spec rendition of this classic model that has been available since its production in the early 1960s. From the select maple and walnut used in its neck to the high-grade spruce of its top, no expense is spared in making this Thinline electric a guitar that Hank Garland and Billy Byrd would be proud of. Details such as the pearl flower-pot headstock inlay, multi-ply fingerboard binding, pointed Florentine cutaway, multi-ply bound pickguard, bound f-holes, and sculpted fingerboard end are all true to classic form. In the electronics department, a pair of Gibson’s popular ’57 Classic humbucking pickups keep it all sounding as good as it looks..

The guitar is in as very good condition, there is some minor tarnishing on the gold hardware, very minimal fret wear and the guitar has been newly setup with 11’s. The guitar plays and sounds great.

Please feel free to email or call 01435 205050 to arrange to view and try the guitar through numerous amps here at the workshop.
