A legendary guitar named for a legendary guitarist.
In the Wes Montgomery, Gibson has created a guitar with inherent quality, versatility, and a rich, impressive appearance. It has gained the highest acclaim from professional musicians. Like the legend whose name it wears, it is destined for history. Guitarists everywhere have sung the praises of the comfortable neck, fast easy action, and quick response. Just like its predecessor, the L-5 CES, the Wes Montgomery has a carved spruce top with highly figured maple back, rims, and a 5-piece maple neck. This model features a '57 Classic reissue humbucking pickup placed in the neck position so that anyone playing it can achieve the Wes tone.
