A truly fine and 100% original example of the hard-to-find Airline Professional.

These guitars came outfitted with a Gibson "patent number" ABR-1 bridge in nickel.  Most sellers steal the bridge for use on vintage Gibson guitars, or to sell for somewhere around $1000 or to use on a $20k+ ES-335, SG, etc.

The original ABR-1 is included here.  I can drop the price and keep the bridge, replacing it with an accurate reproduction, but I felt that this should be the one available on the market as a 100% original piece.

I was definitely the first one to open the resoglass body.  It is pristine inside!  The wiring is really skillfully done too - pretty amazing!  

The guitar has been played but was well cared for.  The frets are low, but they started out that way.  The original case is in excellent condition.
