Gibson ES Artist from 1980

Posted by Paul Toepoel on Wed, 02/16/05 - 22:25:10.

Hi, I own a Gibson ES Artist from 1980, shaped like the ES335 but without the f-holes like the Lucille type, 3 nobs with active electonics from Moog in it, compressor,series switch, treble boost and active controles for the treble and bass. Can anyone tell me what they are worth nowadays and where I can let them be repaired for the electronic parts if necessairy. Thanks a lot!! Paul from Holland.

I own one, love it. tried to get active electronics fixed/replaced years ago, went to a 'famous' builder - who was actually very good, he kept the guitar for about 2 months looking for the electronic's - but alas gave up and i do believe there are no replacements, although now with the internet who knows. If you look on the net, you will see that these baby's go for $2k to $4k depending. Good luck!
