Holy smokes this thing is cool! 1968 Gibson Barney Kessel hollowbody in its original cherry sunburst finish! The whole shop agrees that this is the coolest jazzbox ever produced by Gibson. Fully hollow double cutaway maple body, 3-piece mahogany neck with a factory stinger on the headstock! Original “patent number” humbucking pickups, and a smaller 1 and 9/16th inch nut width. Super comfortbale, resonant and great playing guitar. Overall this guitar is in excellent condition for its age. Light play wear, some faint finish checking and handful of tiny dings on the sides. Totally original, and comes with its original hardshell case.
