Gibson AES Classic - 1992 made in Bozeman, MT

Recommended Posts

I have a Gibson “AES Classic” acoustic electric made in Bozeman, MT in 1992 (in the attached picture) I can’t find one for sale anywhere, nor can I find much information about it. Can anyone tell me how rare it is to find one now, and anything about this model? Thanks

They were aimed for a plug-n-play stage performer, so they had the arched maple back, cutaway, and on-board electronics, and a slightly thinner body (again, IIRC). Can't recall if these were all maple or maple backs and sides with spruce tops.... or if there were some of each.

There's a member here -- Hogeye is his handle -- who might have some more info on these. I remember the EAS models as being 'standard' or 'deluxe', but I have zero idea what the difference is between AES or EAS.

I just looked and every one I found that had come up for or was currently for sale was built in 1992 in black or red. Interesting as that is the same year Gibson came out with the Starburst line so maybe Bozeman was of the mind that acoustic/electric (or vice versa) cutaway guitars were going to be the next big thing.

Thanks. I’ve only found old ads where they were already sold, but haven’t found any currently available. Interesting.
