Wes Montgomery model features a body crafted with a high-grade spruce top, and high-grade maple back and sides. The body is then adorned with multi-ply black and white binding on both the top and back, with single-ply white binding around the f-holes. The gold hardware includes an ABR-1 bridge with a base made from ebony, and Gibson’s period-correct L-5 tailpiece. The 25½-inch scale length neck is a five-piece neck made primarily from high-grade maple, with two streamers made from high-grade walnut, resulting in one of the most stunning neck designs in the history of Gibson Custom. The eye-catching neck is topped by a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with pearl block inlays and multi-ply black and white binding, then hand-fitted with Gibson’s traditional ES-rounded neck profile. The single pickup is Gibson’s legendary ’57 Classic, which faithfully captures the unique and subtle variations between coil windings of the original “Patent Applied For” humbuckers of the late 1950s, and delivers a warm and full tone with a balanced response. Other appointments include Gibson’s traditional flower pot inlay on the headstock, and Schaller M6 tuners. Indeed, Montgomery’s talents have inspired a generation of guitarists, but his guitar and legend lives on in the Wes Montgomery L-5CES from Gibson Custom. The guitar is available in Vintage Sunburst, Wine Red, Natural and Ebony finishes, and come with a Gibson Custom case and a certificate of authenticity.
