1961 Gibson Barney Kessel

First year production Gibson Barney Kessel from 1961; this guitar is in fantastic almost un-played condition and has had only one owner since new. The guitar was bought from Ivor Mairants, Oxford St, London in late 1961 early 1962 and was reported to be one of the first 3 to ever reach the UK.

First year production numbers for the Barney Kessel totalled only 43; these early guitars were the only ones to feature the darker, more desirable Sunburst finish.

This is a fantastic opportunity to own an original, un-circulated example of one of Gibson’s highly regarded early sixties Artist guitars in as close to factory condition as possible.

The guitar comes with its original 17” case in equally fantastic condition.
