Lovely and super rare Gibson ES-446 Custom Shop. Made only in small quantities during a 4-year period. Originally 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.
This example has had a Bigsby installed at one point, and the few holes left behind have been professionally repaired. The tuners have also been replaced. Comes with original case, but there is no COA.
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.
