Used Gibson Herb Ellis ES-165
Condition: Nice shape. The pickup was replaced with a Bartolini. The fingerboard was replaced with a nice Rosewood fingerboard with no inlay. Very nicely done, I would call the fingerboard an upgrade. The pickup split cuts out once in a while when you pull up on the pot. If it is push/pulled again it corrects itself, may just need some contact cleaner. The top shows some light scratching and one or two light indentations especially on the black part of the finish. The sides show some light indentations and scratching, and one finish check on the seam. The back shows some light scratching and indentations especially on the black part of the finish. The neck has one light indentation under the 5th fret. The headstock shows some light scratching and the frets show some light wear. Original hardshell case included.
