1948 Gibson ES-150 Sunburst Hollow-Body Vintage Archtop Electric Guitar

1948 Gibson ES-150 Hollowbody Archtop Electric Guitar with a Sunburst finish in overall very good condition. This is a great playing vintage hollow-body and the P-90 is very powerful. It is all original except for the pickguard and the Waverly tuners. All electronics are original, which sound amazing and work perfectly. It weighs 5.88 pounds and has a 1.772 nut width.

The neck thickness measures 0.914 at the 1st fret. The widest part of the lower bout measures 17 wide. The top is in overall great condition with light finish checking throughout and zero cracks. There's a few scuffs in the top's finish but nothing major. The input jack has been reinforced with a plate. The side of the body has two thin deep scratches that do not flex with pressure, but can be easily filled in. The back of the body has no worming and shines brightly, with just a handful of faint marks that wouldn't even show up on the camera.

The neck joint looks great. The back of the neck has a lot of typical wedding wing indentations but can't be felt when playing. The rosewood fingerboard looks immaculate and the frets have plenty of life. The frets appear to have been recently recrowned and the frets have just been polished to a bright shine.

The headstock is good with no issues, just light scuffing around the edges. The tuners have been replaced with high-quality Waverly vintage-style tuners with Ivoroid knobs and all work great.

Includes a non-original hardshell case in good working condition. As one of Gibson's first successful Electric Spanish (ES) guitars, the ES-150 was groundbreaking instrument in many ways. Like many Gibson guitars the ES-150 experienced a stoppage in production during World War II, and was reintroduced in 1946 with a number of changes.
