Gibson ES-135H 2002 Wine Red Semi Hollow Electric Guitar

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

This Gibson ES-135 from 2002 is in extremely clean condition for a 22 year old guitar.  

While I love P-90 pickups, I prefer this version to the P-90 loaded ES-135 from the period.  I think the P-90s from that era that they used in this model just weren't that great.  This version is like an ES-175 without the bling, putting it in an attractive price bracket while offering great tone in a very useable guitar.

This is another 20+ year old guitar to arrive recently in near mint condition.  It has barely been played and shows no measurable fret wear.  The neck is perfect and there is room in the truss rod for future adjustment.  There are no issues or repairs whatsoever.

Original hardshell case included.
