Seeing Double Gibsons

If you have never seen one in person the Gibson ES-140 (3/4) (on the left) is the mini version of the Gibson ES-175 (on the right).  The full thickness 3/4 guitar was available up until about 1957. The tone is amazingly similar to it big brother. The same size yet thinner body version was available well after this one was discontinued. The little one came in for some simple work while the big one was for sale here at Real Guitars.  I know I want a pair.
