GibsonĀ® ES-150DC 1969, Natural - Sold

The Gibson ES-150 DC was a full-bodied version of the Thinline ES-335TD. Both were made from the same materials and shared much of the same hardware and ornamentation. They had the same scale length and the same number of frets. The difference between the two is in the dimensions, the ES-150DC is 1¼" deeper at 3", compared to 1¾" of the ES-335TD, and also in the fact that the 150 lacks the central maple block of the 335.

The following description is taken from the 1970 Gibson catalog:

  • ES-150 DC - Double Cutaway This popularly priced addition to the Gibson line is a real show stopper. The hollow body archtop guitar features an exclusive double Venetian cutaway design that contributes to easy playability.
