Gibson ES 137
The amazing Gibson ES 137 for sale provides a unique deep resonate tone!
Some good guitars have come from the Gibson line in Memphis, and one of the most popular is the ES 137.
It is a unique guitar, and not specifically modeled to be a new version of an older instrument.
The ES 137 was created with the classic Les Paul in mind, especially in tone, and with many of the same features as the ES 135.
The combination of these has made for a great guitar.
The body of the ES 137 is much like some other guitars in the ES line, with the semi-hollow body and Florentine cutaway.
The sound of the Les Paul comes in with the addition of some of the same features found on the Les Paul Classic, such as the pickups.
The body is slimmer than some of the others, too, but it’s not considered a thin line electric guitar.
A few of the main differences between the ES 137 and its predecessors are that the block inside is now made of a harder wood, for more sound stability.
The trapeze style tailpiece is not on an ES 137; instead you’ll find a stop tailpiece.
That’s the same one you see on the Gibson ES 335.
There are some great artists known for their Gibson ES 137, one of these is the guitarist for Jet, Cameron Muncey. Another is the Kings of Leon’s Matthew Followill.
There aren’t too many people out there by now who haven’t heard of 311. This band has made some history, and probably will continue to make headlines.
Their albums are produced by a guy that has produced for Metallica and Bon Jovi, and their ninth album was released in June.
The front man for 311, the guy with the blue guitar, is named Nick Hexum.
That blue guitar is an ES 137, and the color is officially called Blueburst.
The Blueburst Gibson has fronted the band for four years now, and is Hexum’s favorite.
He claims to have been a Les Paul fanatic before the blue guitar stole his heart.
Blue, brown, or any other color, there is no doubt that the ES 137 is a great guitar.
It’ll cost you a little more than some of the other models, but the rich sound and great design will make it well worth a little sacrifice!
