Gibson / ES165 Herb Ellis / 2010 / Sunburst / Guitar For Sale
The Gibson ES165 Herb Ellis is a stunning signature model based on Herb's classic ES175 which he modified to incorporate a floating pickup in the neck position. The signature model has an upgraded Lollar Charlie Christian pickup which gives a full sound with rounded highs and long sustain - an ultimate jazz voice. This is a high end guitar, with all the deluxe features you'd expect, from the bound neck with parallelogram fretboard inlays, to the crown headstock inlay, triple bound top, gold plated hardwear and bound bevelled pickguard - it really is a classy instrument. This example is finished in a custom order, highly flamed, Autumn Burst, and looks fantastic. The guitar’s in excellent condition, other than an extra side pickguard screw hole, with a very comfortable feeling neck and easy playing action. The guitar comes in it's original Gibson tan hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
