"1956 Gibson ES-140t a very strange bird indeed… I bought this guitar in Ft Wayne Indiana 10 years ago because I had never laid eyes on another one or even heard of the model itself. This 3/4 scale comes with a 4 latch Lifton case that DOES NOT fit a Les Paul Model… I was pretty shattered to figure that out being original Les Paul cases are very valuable and hard to find in mint condition. This guitar rested in my living room for years as a perfect couch guitar… Loud and bright with just enough gain out of the pick up to drive a Princeton Reverb over the edge. They made these guitars in thin or thick body (example shown is a thin body) and in blonde or sunburst. Overall a fun guitar and an even more story of discovering a hidden gem in the midwest of the Americas… For the collector always enjoys the chase more than the item itself," Joe Bonamassa says, on his [website](http://jbonamassa.com/joes-guitar-of-the-week/guitar-of-the-week-31-1956-gibson-es-140t/).more
