Review Gibson Wes Montgomery
UweH, 05.12.2009
The expectation of such a musical instrument is, of course, very high. After the opening of the very solid wooden case, the guitar really lights up. In the hand, it smells wonderful after a mixture between vanilla and tobacco (no joke!).

If the instrument is placed on the knee, the enormous dimensions become conscious. Ceiling and floor have a vault, simply dreamlike. The neck angle, floating board as well as the complete design of the guitar is simply harmonious. The first chords played acoustically, come with official "swing". Here it is not necessarily the loudness, but rather the matured, typical character of an adult archtop. Nice. If the guitar is now plugged into an amp, you are literally pressed into the seat. A volume with substance, which puts everything in the shade. At Thomann I had the opportunity to play several Gibsons for comparison. The warm, full jazz tone had not reached any. Simply superb.

I would also like to emphasize the very good wood quality, because they did not exist in the past!

There are also a few trifles, which are not quite coherent:
1. bridge ABR1, actually more to find on LP, SG, ES. Very sensitive to the race!
2. slightly sticky neck back, but has now become very reduced.
3. Minimal impurities at binding
