Gibson Custom Shop ES 359, near mint condition, with Gibson Custom hard-shell case and certificate of authenticity;
Ebony fretboard (not the "Richlite" Gibson is using now), MHS humbuckers
the neck profile is the "Lucille" profile which is like a "60s slim-taper" but a little thicker
It's a beautiful guitar, but it was an impulse purchase due to G.A.S. attack, and now my accountant (Whose initials happen to be JGMcD) says it's got to go.

NOTE - also listed on another site, so when she's gone she's gone!

$2100.00 plus shipping
















There is naturally occurring brown streak in the ebony fretboard on the bass side at the 9th-11th fret



(see the tech tip on the Stewart-MacDonald site about brown streaks in ebony, and dyeing them:

It's a 2008 if I'm interpreting the serial # correctly - 5 digits starting with an 8.
