Congratulations Skip! Beautiful Herb Ellis ES-165. What a great, classic, awesome archtop.

For me, the Herb Ellis model was the one that got away. Found one at an exceptional price many years ago at a swap shop. Finish was a little checked and the hardware oxidized but the tone was the best of any ES-165/175 I ever heard. Still regretting not pulling the trigger.

Your acquisition makes up for my lost opportunity. Stars and planets back in alignment. Congratulations!
