John Leslie “Wes” Montgomery was an American jazz guitarist. One of the most influential guitarists of the twentieth century, Montgomery was known for an unusual technique of plucking the strings with the side of his thumb and his extensive use of octaves, which gave him a distinctive sound. Wikipedia

Wes owned and played a variety of Gibson archtops over the years that would have us all drooling. A Gibson L-4 with a ‘Charlie Christian’ pickup, an ES-175 and an ES-125 are all guitars he was photographed with in the early days. The instrument he’ll be forever associated with, though, is the L-5.
