Gibson ES-150 Preowned 1948

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

Experience a piece of musical history with this exceptional 1948 Gibson ES-150 archtop electric guitar. This iconic instrument holds a special place in Gibson's heritage as one of the early successes in the Electric Spanish (ES) series. Although production of the ES-150 commenced in 1936, it was temporarily halted during World War II and then reintroduced in 1946 with several design improvements, including the incorporation of a P-90 pickup in place of the original "Charlie Christian" pickup.

The Gibson ES-150, with its 16 1/4" wide body and single-coil pickup, was a favored choice among jazz and big band musicians of its era. After a brief hiatus during WWII, the ES-150 returned with a slightly larger 17" wide body and the introduction of the iconic P-90 pickup. Production continued into the early 1950s, eventually ending in 1956 as musical styles evolved. This 1948 Gibson ES-150, now nearly 76 years old, has maintained its remarkable original condition, a testament to its enduring quality. With a non-original case, flawless condition, and set up with flat-wound strings, it plays beautifully, offering you the opportunity to own a vintage gem that has stood the test of time.
