Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster 1959

This is a rare guitar alright, a 1959 Natural ES-5 Switchmaster with a venetian cutaway, sn#A29592. Only 167  natural finished ES-5 Switchmasters were produced in the 1956-1961 period and only 33 of them were made in 1959. In 1957 Gibson switched from 3 P90 pickups to 3 humbuckers on this model which along with the rounded venetian cutaway makes it a very desirable guitar. It is not hard to see where the Switchmaster got its name. The Pickup seletor switch is prominently placed and It enables the player to switch the pickups on separately or all at once. With a tone and volume circuit for each humbucker offering a variety of sounds.

Features include flame maple back and sides, original natural finish, flame maple top and a flame maple neck with a 5-ply bound rosewood fingerboard with a pointed end, and most importantly 3 original PAF pickups!! Condition is excellent with expected signs of use, all original, no issues, call or mail for hands-on description. Includes original hardshell case. We're selling this guitar in consignment.
