Gibson Es 137

16 March 2011 No Comment
Gibson ES 137The Gibson ES-137 is a rather interesting archtop guitar when compared to some of the other products the company has produced. Gibson advertises this model as something completely new rather than being based on older, vintage models. While one could make the case that such a claim is not necessarily true, the fact remains that the ES-137 is a hybrid guitar unlike anything else coming out of Gibson's Memphis factory.

The Gibson ES-137 is a semi-hollow electric designed to be a cross between Gibson's traditional hollow-body electrics and it's solid-body Les Paul model. The hybrid design incorporates the traditional Gibson hollow-body structure with the pickups and electronics of a Les Paul. The combination is a rather unique sound that takes some getting used to. Nonetheless, the ES-137 has a lot of dedicated fans.

In terms of appearance, the ES-137 looks a lot like many other Gibson archtop models, most notably the ES-175. The Florentine cut away is something you'll find on quite a few Gibsons, being that they were one of the early pioneers of the design. Internally, a mahogany center block has been built into the body to help mitigate the feedback issues common with hollow-body electrics. The guitar also usually utilizes a stop tailpiece rather than the trapeze design Gibson normally puts on its hollow-bodies.

The Gibson ES-137 is still in production and can be had in a variety of finishes. The body is made from curly maple, the neck is solid maple, and the fretboard is rosewood. For a few extra dollars, customized models can include an ebony fret board. A fixed Tune-O-Matic bridge and twin humbucker pickups complete the package.

Matthew Followill and Cameron Muncey are among some of the more famous players of the ES-137. But like most other Gibson models, there are plenty of pro and amateur musicians who swear by this guitar and will play nothing else.

question about hollow body guitars?

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Gibson-Custom-Shop-ES-137-Classic-Electric-Guitar-517196-i1149219.gc
im thinking about buying this guitar but i dont have much experience with caring for hollow body guitars

is there anything special i need to do to keep it in good playing condition??

first of all nice pick on the simi-hollow the first thing to remember is the paint chips easily so dont go banging it around, next the strings a nickle cadium i use erine ball .09 electric strings but gibson strings work about the same ,clean the strings so they sound bright every time you play. wipe off the face neck fret and tune keys with the softest fabric you can buy there. other than that enjoy.
