Not to be confused with the archtop model of the same designation made famous by Charlie Christian nearly three decades earlier, this Norlin era guitar is more like an ES-335, with a fully hollow deep body like a 175. This first year example is one of only sixty-five shipped that year in blonde, and predates having the volute and origin stamp commonly seen on Norlin Gibsons. Light, great sounding, and versatile. A stock master volume rounds out the usual two humbucker control configuration. All original and clean! OHSC. $4999 Go to for more photos.
