Gibson ES-120 T

Thinline electric acoustic guitar

Gibson ES-120 T

The ES-120T (and it's almost identical Epiphone sibling the Epiphone Granada) is a really interesting guitar. They were entry level instruments, yet absolutely beautifully built. Gibson may well have added fancy inlays and to it's more expensive guitars, but the humble ES-120T still got the fine body and neck woods, superbly assembled and finished in nitrocellulose. It's true, as players, they don't have the same range as the other ES guitars, lacking cutaways, and the PU-380 'Melody Maker' pickups were perhaps less refined than Gibson PAF humbuckers - but these guitars absolutely exude 60s Gibson quality. Try one!

The following description is taken from the 1970 Gibson catalogue

ES-120 T Good looks, fine performance and low price. These are the qualities that have made this electric Spanish guitar a favourite with amateur musicians. Features an exclusive, patented finger rest pickup.

FEATURES: Arched maple top and back, mahogany rims. Slim, fast, low action neck joins body at the 14th fret. Mahogany neck, adjustable truss rod. . Rosewood fingerboard, pearloid dot inlays.
