This Gibson came to us from a close pal, an ultra-careful acoustic guitarist who inherited it from his aunt, a librarian who he describes as a woman you would never guess played a Gibson electric guitar and read Guitar Player magazine with almost religious zeal. But such is the power of the guitar, and this Gibson ES-150D is the equivalent of the legendary used Ford coupe owned by the little old lady from Pasadena. It's original throughout, with only light scuffs to the finish, mostly on the back. Yes, the pickguard shows that it served its purpose, and there are some typical lacquer checks you expect in a Gibson from this era (but not many, and not bad ones). The frets are original, milled rather low by the Gibson factory when this was new, and the string action is nice and low. The original double-ring tuners are in the case, they were replaced with repro Klusons that work far more smoothly, but the mounting screw holes match, the original bushings are still there, you could swap back to the originals in just a few minutes (a spare tune-a-matic saddle is also included). Clean original hardshell case with Gibson stencil on the lid.
