1957 GIBSON ES-140 3/4 T
Beautiful and rare 1957 Gibson ES-140 3/4 T, in excellent original condition.
This guitar can be considered a scaled down version of the ES-175, with a smaller size and shorter scale length.
After a first appearance in a non-thinline form in 1950, the ES-140 3/4 T is introduced to the catalog in 1957, the year of manufacture of the present guitar. Gibson boasted an instrument designed for children or adults with small hands (sic.) with all of the qualities of a professional instrument, and a format allowing for great playing comfort in particular thanks to the short scale neck – in short, we are not to trust appearances!
Maple top, back and sides, mahogany neck, beautiful rosewood fingerboard. The guitar has all its original parts, from the Kluson Deluxe tuners to the adjustable rosewood bridge, including wiring and electronics. The latter are of absolute simplicity, allowing the connection of a single P-90 with a raw and clear sound which characterizes this type of pickup.
Complete professional setup done in our workshop, in perfect playing condition. Comes in its beautiful original Lifton case.
