Gibson records show only 15 ever made in late 1945, none before none after.
You are looking at a very rare 1945 Black Gibson ES-300. Only a few of these are noted in the Gibson book. You will also find it noted in Gruhns Guide pg. 193 under ES-300. This guitar is in remarkable condition. Very nice neck, a few nicks and scratches. Bindings are all in great condition. No wear on the neck. Serial #98610. Tuners work. Light checking all over. you can see in some of the pictures.
The front pickguard has come loose(picture below)with a small hole above the screw. Neck plate cover is an old Les Paul cover. I got his guitar from the original family and the Les Paul cover was added in the late 50`s from a 55 Les Paul Black Beauty, that I may end up with also. Has original aligator soft case, brown with cream trim, not in very good condition.. I will also ship it in a nice hardshell case. I am currently having a custom museum quality pickguard and period correct neck plate cover made for the Guitar..
This Guitar is perfect for a Collector, or a great Rock-a-billy guitar player. Any collector should want this for there collection.
