I love my vintage Gibson guitars and I'm a huge P-90 fan. Over the years, I have collected many interesting, great-sounding guitars, including several ES 330s and L5s.
I created a very distinct sound with my own special concept: A 1969 ES-150 stoptail conversion with an interesting combination of three different pickups.

Also, check out my YouTube channel Vintage Guitars & Gear.

1967 Gibson L5

1967 Gibson L5

The Queen of Jazz Guitars

Initially produced as an acoustic in 1922, the L-5 was Gibson’s first guitar with f-holes.

In the 1940s the model became the rhythm box of choice for big band players and later the standard guitar for Wes Montgomery, who would eventually receive a custom model.

1967 Gibson ES330

Short neck, two P90s

Thinline with P90 pickups, short neck and laminated top. Especially Grant Green made the ES330 known to a bigger audience. A Gibson Classic that works for Jazz, Blues or Rock equally well.

1951 Gibson ES-5

Gibson's first electric guitar, 3 P90s

The Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster was truly a guitar ahead of its time. First introduced in 1949, the ES-5 was the first ES guitar to be fitted with three pickups, and was initially intended solely for jazz players.

It had a high-grade maple top, back and rims and a single cutaway.

Stoptail Conversion, 3 different pu's

This is a conversion plan I had in mind for a long time: Would a guitar that's similar to a Gibson ES330 but thicker also sound similar but thicker? This ES150 has some ES330 features, yet some ES335 or ES175 ones. It's as thick as a jazz guitar but has a 1-piece mahogany neck. It has a 335 scale but a P90 in the neck position, like an ES5.

Gibson L5 Wes Montgomery

Gibson L5 Wes Montgomery

Custom-made for Wes

One of the few guitars I play that is not a vintage model:

It is this guitar that Wes Montgomery is most associated with, and the guitar he played almost exclusively on many of his most important recordings of the 1960s.
