2001 Gibson ES135
This is certainly the nicest 135 we have ever had. This blonde beauty is in excellent condition and the gold hardware is a stunning contrast. The 135 has been said to be a blend of the 335 and the 175. It is deeper than a 335 but shallower than a 175. It has a center block like the 335, but the guitar is still very light weight and resonant...more like the 175. This is an excellent guitar for jazz, rock-a-billy, country, blues or rock. These seem to be rapidly increasing in value. You may have a hard time finding any example in any condition for only $1495. The original hard case is also in excellent condition.
