    Gibson Custom ES-137 Specifications
    Body
    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.
