This ES-135 doesn't seem to have been played a ton, but it was filthy when it came in.  Tim did a great job cleaning it up.  Getting through the funk on the body required some elbow grease, and underneath he found that the finish was more gloss than the typical satin for this model.  This is something I've seen on guitars like this from Gibson - particularly the "Faded" models - when you play them a lot they kind of buff out to a gloss finish, which I prefer.

All that said, the guitar is really sweet - plays great, is all original and has no repairs or issues.  It comes with the original case - the locking latch is broken.
