Gibson Custom shop L5 Wes Montgomery Wine Red 2015 MINT

Gibson Crimson Custom L-5 CES Wes Montgomery 2015, near mint condition. We're selling this instrument in consignment! As the custom shop has become more and more involved in standard production, it was not able to concentrate on custom orders well enough. Gibson solved this problem by starting a department within the Gibson custom division. They put together a small group of hand selected luthiers and Custom Crimson was born. The Custom Crimson division concentrates mostly on making carved top guitars. This beautiful Wes Montgomery L-5 in chique wine red is one of the first guitars we received from the Crimson division, and it has left a lasting impression on us. The build quality is beyond anything we've ever seen from the Custom Shop.Wes Montgomery relied on his faithful Gibson L-5 CES guitars. His original instruments were typically stock L-5s that came equipped with either Gibson's single coil P-90 or alnico pickups. Sometime in the early 1960s, however, as Montgomery's reputation continued to grow, he ordered a custom L-5 with a rounded cutaway - instead of the sharper Florentine cutaway - and a single humbucker pickup situated at the end of the fingerboard. It is this guitar that Montgomery is most associated with, and the guitar he played almost exclusively on many of his most important recordings of the 1960s, up until his untimely death from a heart attack in 1968. This Wes Montgomery L-5 built today by Gibson Custom Crimson is built to the same specifications as the instrument used by Montgomery in the 1960s.
