This is a really cool & ultra rare early ES-140 3/4, literally a 3/4 sized ES-175 w/a gorgeous rich Dark Sunburst finish over a maple top & back w/walnut stained side panels. Its cool 1 piece mahogany neck w/its 1 11/16″ nut width feels fabulous. Its got an unbound simply INSANELY Figured Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard w/pearl dot inlays. You get a killer variety of jazz tones thru its 1 original P-90 pickup like Jim Hall & Joe Pass. She is still sporting her original single-line Kluson Deluxe tuners, its original Tortoise single laminated pickgard & its 2 gold speed control knobs. All of its hardware is clean from its wooden bridge to its cool trapeze tailpiece. It came with no white oval label as it was a budget line model. She’s ink stamped w/a “w” date code for 1955. She’s got killer sustain & tone qualities. Having very little use ever she’s exceptionally clean overall & a 100% original example & she comes w/its ultra rare minty Gibson Brown tolex/Brown lined hard case.
