1957 Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster - Natural ...3x PAF´s !!!
1957 Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster - Natural inkl. orig. brown hardshell case
Beautiful 1957 Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster in Natural finish in excellent condition for its age! 1957 was the first year for the 3x PAF humbucker version, the guitar is all original except for a older repro-pickguard. There is only minor play-wear, mostly on the backside of the neck, the frets are still in great shape, even the gold plating on the hardware is still shiny and in great condition. The body is made of highly flamed maple, definately one of the nicest Switchmaster models we´ve ever seen. The guitar dosn´t have any cracks, damages or former repairs, the big C-shaped neck is well adjusted and comfortabel to play, very nice sounding instrument! Comes in its original brown Geib hardshell case with green plush interior.
