Gibson ES-135

Blueburst, 2000

I bought the book about Scott Chinery’s collection of blue guitars in New York many years ago and was fascinated by the idea of a blue guitar ever since. This example sports a very dark Blueburst and lends itself to music with darker themes. It has a center block and two Super57 humbuckers and is therefore very similar to the better known ES-335. A no nonsense guitar from Gibson Memphis in a stunning color, strung with 0.12 roundwounds.
