  Gibson Archtop Guitars


Gibson has a number of archtop guitar models.  The ES-350 was launched in 1947 which was followed by the ES-175.  Many consider the ES-175 as the first mass produced electric archtop from Gibson.  In 1950 Gibson also launched the ES140 which was a beginner 3/4 scale electric.  The L5 and Super 400 are top of the line jazz guitars.  The CES designation was added in 1951 and had with permanently installed twin pickups and controls.  In 1955 Gibson launched Thin Line models often using the "T" designation after the model number.  The Byrdland and ES-350T are thinline examples.  My favorite, the ES-335 was introduced in 1958.   The ES-345 and 355 were introduced in the same time frame.   Gibson archtops continue to be popular guitars and many models are still in production today.
