Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $3,700$4,600

Also known as the Switchmaster, the Gibson ES-5 originally wielded three P-90 pickups, three volume knobs and a master tone control. After 1957, the ES-5 was given a triple set of PAF humbuckers with six control konbs. More recently, the Gibson Custom Shop started offering reissues of the humbucker Switchmaster. Like other high-end Gibsons, a natural finish does increase the resale value of this model.
