1967 Gibson Barney Kessel Regular


In the early 1950s, Barney Kessel played a Gibson ES-350. Gibson convinced Barney Kessel that they were going to match a deal he also had with Kay Guitars and build him a better guitar. In the late 1960s, Gibson introduced a prototype Florentine double-cutaway guitar, very similar in characteristics to the Gibson L-5.
