1966 Gibson EH-500 Skylark Steel

Introduced in mid-'57, the EH-500 Skylark became Gibson's most popular steel, sharing the futuristic look and Korina body used by the famous Flying V and Explorer guitars, which debuted the following year.

This local example dates from 1966 and features double-line Kluson tuners with cool black buttons, single Melody Maker pickup and witch-hat knobs complete the mid-century goodness of this solid playing instrument. New electronics care of our shop, as the volume pot was non-functional. Original pickup is perfect, and the original parts are in the case pocket. It's a great sounding steel and well set-up.

With original hard shell case.
