The ES-165 Herb Ellis is a classic jazz guitar based on Herb's own Gibson ES-175. A single humbucker produces a warm jazz tone,
and gold-plated metal parts impart a classy look.

articulate tone for peerless jazz flavor. Single volume knob
on the pickguard keeps it simple and keeps the top wood pristine for amazing resonance.
