    Just wanted to show this baby a 2006 es 137 custom. Got it a few days ago. I already had one of these in cherry sunburst. It was quite used but in good shape. I suspected it maybe had some electronics customized. F Holes had rubbed paint where pots had been brought up, neck pickup was installed backwards, which I reinstalled. sounded great though. So I came across this one on reverb. Seller claimed mint with sticker and plastic on the pickguard. Collected rarely played. So I couldn't resist :D it was legit. It's in real nice shape. And after looking at it close it proved my other was worked on. This thing has a way different sound. Louder, very woody, awesome with a little drive. My fav at the moment.

    a 137 is on my bucket list. I've had a few 135s, but the 137s are a big step ahead, and just about the perfect shape, imo. Not to knock 335s, but that single cut body shape just fits perfect for me.
