Gibson ES150 Charlie Christian Model
We recently had the priviledge to work on a 1939/1940 Gibson ES150 Charlie Christian model guitar. This guitar is in remarkable original condition. We did a setup and replaced a volume pot and an output jack. Other than that, all the electronics are original.
We are huge archtop fans and Charlie Christian fans, so it was a great opportunity to have this guitar in the shop. Josh (one of the shop owners and a guitar teacher) got to plug it into a 1938 Gibson EH185 Amp, the same amp that Charlie Christian used. The tone was amazing. It sounded like an old recording of the Benny Goodman sextet.
Being able to work on guitars like this is one of the coolest things about being a Luthier.
