About This Listing

This is a vintage 1953 Gibson ES-140 3/4 electric cutaway archtop with a Sunburst finish. Only in production between 1950 and 1957, the ES-140 3/4 is much like a shrunken ES-175 with a more compact body and shorter 22.75" scale length. It has a full-depth body, which eventually was replaced with a thinline style body years later. Originally loaded with a single P-90 pickup in its neck position, this particular 140 has been player-fied with the addition of another P-90 in its center and suited with its own set of volume and tone controls. Its pots, knobs, and bridge are non-original, and its pickups are Fralin.

This guitar is has character and charm and mojo in spades, and it is a total dream to play. It has an incredible sound both acoustically and amplified, and with the naturally worn finish on its neck, you can tell it was played for good reason. It is lightweight and supremely comfortable to play, as well.

It has been professionally setup and comes with its original hard shell case.

Please feel free to ask any questions or call us for an in-hand description!
