Gibson Crest Gold 1970


Product Code: GE626

$ 7,500.00

A rare Gibson thinline hollow-body! This double cut hollow body was the second Gibson model to bear the "Crest" name and was only produced from '69 to '71. During this short span, only 172 guitars were made. Although looking similar to an ES-335, the Crest had a series of unique features that separated it from the rest of the Gibson catalog. The guitar features a laminated rosewood top, back and sides, a pair of floating mini-humbuckers, a floating rosewood bridge, and a shorter scale length of 24.5". The model was offered with either gold or silver hardware.

This particular example is in very nice condition with deep finish checking. There is also some pitting on the gold hardware. Comes with the original hard case.
