Not one you see every day!

The Gibson ES 150DW, a double cutaway, full depth hollow body archtop electric built around 1973 at the Kalamazoo plant during the Norlin years, equipped with Bigsby B12 vibrato system.

Inspired by it's more jazz-oriented predecessor, the ES-150 [1946-56] but more closely resembling a 3" deep fully hollow ES-335. This is a fabulous example of big bodied Gibson's of the era, akin to it's peer, the Barney Kessel signature model.

This one is in very good condition for it's vintage, just a couple of small knocks around the sides and some finish flaking along the neck join. The original frets are well worn from years of play, but all notes are still playing well with no choking. While fairly "zingy" unplugged, no fret-buzz is audible through an amplifier.
