That's a stunner! What's the, erm, history on History guitars? It's pretty hard to google, I keep finding info on the history of the Gibson ES-335
That is a question best answered by the guys in the "other guitars" forum or in the MIJ Classified.

I have read enough over there to know they are high end MIJ.

Here is something I just googled:

History guitars are an original brand for the Shimamura chain of shops in Japan.

They are made at the FujiGen plant.

Japanese domestic market.

History guitar catalogs back to 1996

The market is still soft from it. You can get used ES's for ~ what CME listed these for. Maybe a few hundred more, but well below where used prices were prior to the CME sale.
Tell me about it.. I stupidly didn't grab this one off the local Craigslist when I first saw it last week - I wanted to "sleep on it" overnite.. Of course when I decided to get it the next morning, it was gone.

Still kicking myself..

CME has Gingerburst Studios for $999.

If it says sold out, keep refreshing as they restock.


Sweet guitar at a very sweet price.
