Rare: 1937 Gibson Es 150

Hello folks,

This is a truly magnificent guitar that hails from the time period when electrics were in their very beginning stages. As such, this is one of the archetypical electrics and is an instrument that is only getting rarer with time. This particular model dates from 1937. The FON stamped inside the guitar reads 1336C (ink stamped) and then in red pencil we believe it is a “1″ following that. The instrument has a strong V profile neck and the nut width of the guitar is 1 3/4″. The instrument features all original parts including the Grover open back tuners and the covetted “Charlie Christian” b;ade style pickup and electronics. This was the same model guitar as Charlie used on many of his landmark recordings with Benny Goodman, and it has a wonderful jazz tone which takes you back to those pre-WWII times! The guitar is in good condition overall. You can see the pick-wear that runs throughout the top and back of the instrument. There are no major cracks or repairs, just good honest patina through and through. It is mostly near the pickup as pictured. I’ve tried to picture the serial number, but it’s a bit blurry. The guitar will ship in a NON ORIGINAL hard shell case.

GUITAR IS LOCATED IN NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA
