Holy sweet jazz box! This Carlo Robelli ES-500 is a great rendtion of the Gibson E-5 arcthop. The first thing you'll notice right outta the gate (besides the triple P-90's--we'll get to those), is its jawdropping blonde flame maple top. It’s a copy of an Gibson ES 5 archtop. It's an amazing player crafted with a "D" profile maple neck with a 12" radius rosewood fingerboard (843"-.968"). The nut measures in at 1 21/32" making for a nice slim feel as you go down toward the first position. Damn this thing plays like a dream!

The ES-500 gets it's tonal flexibility from that sick triple threat of  "dog ear" style soapbar P-90 pickups. It's loaded up with separate volume controls for each pickup and a master tone control so you can blend these three lovelies together. 

Gold hardware, vintage Bigsby-style tremolo and triple binding on the neck, headstock and body round out the appointments on this great guitar. The top shelf luthiers here at EMS have given this gal a full setup to insure that it arrives to you with level frets and zero issues. It ships the next day with the included hard shell case.
