    For Sale: 2000 Gibson ES 5 Custom Shop Historic Edition, Serial number 21240002.

    Dreamed of owning the guitar made famous by T-Bone Walker? This is it!

    I bought this guitar new in 2000 from a dealer who kept it cased and only showed it to qualified buyers. So, there is no shop wear. It remains flawless, in as new condition. Lives in my climate controlled home studio at 68 degrees F and 42% humidity. Never gigged. Never exposed to smoke.

    Stunning natural finish over highly figured maple. Three Alnico P 90 pups. Strung .011 - .049. Great set up and a wonderful player.

    This is one of just a few that Gibson made to recreate the look and sound of the original ES 5 from about 1949 - 1952, before the ES 5 became the Switchmaster. The originals are rare and prized collectors. Some experts say these recreations are also destined to be collector pieces.

    Comes with the original Gibson, deluxe, hardshell case.

    $4,550.00 shipped, insured in CONUS. I accept PayPal. No trades, please.

    Price Reduction: NOW....$4,250.00, shipped, insured in CONUS

    Thanks for looking.

    Yeah, that great T-Bone Walker sound!
    I have that same instrument (in sunburst) and would hate to sell it.
    Good luck with the sale!

    One last go around on my ES5. If it's not sold in a week, I'll close the post and de-list.

    Thanks everyone for looking.
