<<<* GUITARS WEST *>>> CALL FOR A HANDS ON DESCRIPTION OF ALL OF OUR INSTRUMENTS! (619) 988-9777 "FOR A HANDS ON DESCRIPTION" *** $35,000 *** Ref# 00561: Try and find another! Regarded as one of the most valued guitars to date, this is a very rare 1939 Sunburst Gibson ES-250 (SN# EA 5356) with its original hardshell case and its counterpart, a 1939 Gibson EH-185 matching amp! Made famous by Charlie Christian and being the first version of the series, this Sunburst ES-250 has a 19 fret fingerboard with pearloid "Open Book" inlays and a "Stair Step" headstock and Grover Imperia tuners. This guitar also features a "Charlie Christian" pickup (six blade), Spruce top, arched Maple back, white ivoroid binding. The top of the guitar has been touched up on the front as well as some slight lacquer checking on the back. The "Stair Step" headstock is just the most coolest thing and designed for that era. As for the EH-185 amp, the condition is fair (it's 77 years old!), the speaker has been re-coned by Robert Dixon's speaker repairman and service by Mark Butler and Raul Hernandez. This amp really roars and soars!!! The mic input will drive you crazy! Full of tone! And quiet as a mouse! To date, this is one of Gibson's finer amps. Also another incredibly sought-after piece, this amp sounds sweet or gritty with tons of bottom and top end. I've never heard anything quite this good. Boat loads of volume and distortion.
