Gibson Custom ES-137 Specifications
The ES-137 blends the looks and overall style of a single cutaway semi-hollowbody guitar and the sonic authority of a Gibson. It refines the basic design of earlier semi-hollowbody Gibsons by swapping the styles maple centerblock for solid mahogany to increase sustain and reduce feedback at even heavy metal volumes. With its single Florentine cutaway, the ES-137 draws on the heritage of Gibsons earlier ES-135 and ES-175 models for historic inspiration, but sustain, sizzle, and some appealing non-traditional colour options make it an more contemporary instrument.
It features a top, back, and rims made of visually appealing curly maple on a 16-inches wide, 20-inches long, and 2-inches deep body. The cream binding is multi-ply on top and single ply on the back as well as trapezoid fretboard inlays. The 12th fret of the ES-137 sports a pearloid inlay C to denote its own classic status.
The ES-137 shares Gibson 490 R and 498 T pickups with chrome hardware, including a Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. The instruments neck is sturdy three-ply maple supporting a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid inlays and single ply binding. It has a rounded profile and a 24-inch scale length and is 1 11/16th-inches wide at the nut. The tuners are Grover keystones. And complimenting the 490R and 498T humbuckers is the classic Gibson dual volume pot, dual tone pot, and three-way selector set configuration.
