Used 2013 Gibson Crimson Custom Wes Montgomery L-5 Electric Guitar Ebony

Gibson's L-5 CES was originally produced as an acoustic in the early 1920s and in its updated version quickly became the choice instrument for big band players and guitar heroes such as Wes Montgomery. Over the years, the model has seen some changes but has always maintained its place in guitar history, considered by many to be the definitive archtop guitar.

This pre-owned Wes Montgomery L-5 CES is the same model that Wes used to forever alter jazz guitar back in the '50s and '60s. Its appearance is both imposing and graceful, with a stylish single cutaway, block inlays, and artfully crafted headstock. The guitar plays with absolute ease and produces a great mellow and warm tone. Like all instruments from the Gibson Custom Shop's Crimson division, the overall attention to detail is incredible. This instrument is in overall excellent condition.

Includes: Original Hardshell Case, Certificate of Authenticity, Hang Tag and Paperwork
