Lovely and super rare Gibson ES-446 Custom Shop. During the four year period when these guitars were being made they were advertised as a cross between a Les Paul and a 335. The 446 is constructed like a hollow arch top guitar but smaller and slimmer, but the arched spruce top has the braces carved right into it as opposed to glued.
Original Gibson description:
When you pick up the new hollow-bodied ES-446S, the first thing you’ll notice is how incredibly light the instrument is. With an average weight of just under 71/2 pounds, the ES-446S can get you through long sets with little or no fatigue.
The other thing you’ll notice is how great it sounds. The contoured spruce top features f-holes and braces that are carved into the top — not glued. This makes for an instrument with marvelous tone and remarkable resonance. Finally, the ES-446S is topped off with a graceful Florentine cutaway and traditional-style head stock giving it a strikingly classic look.
