1959 Orig Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster Shell With Case RARE Find!
Ok, your a Jazz Player and you want a true Tone King Axe, but have your average job or can't seem to spend $15,000 or 20k on a Vintage Axe. Here is your 1 shot in this life. I parted a perfect playing, sounding 3 PAF 56+ year old Jazz Box. I say again, it played perfect, set up perfect. No issues. In this sale you get the Shell, Case, Switch with output can. It had another bridge end tail piece at one time, but that gets covers up. I have pictures of it whole to give you the look and as it was
I had this as a 1958 L5, but after taking it apart all 6 pots were 1959. So it's a 1959 L5
You can put reissue parts/custom shop all in this, and YOU STILL GOIT BELL TONE. The tone is in the Wood...that simple....
This is firm in price, no one has ever offered this, like this... Gibson Best Year Ever in making Tone Guitar's.... 1959!
You will not be disappointed in these for a project that will reward you for the rest of your life.
