Gibson 1960 ES345 very rare guitar that is in unbelivable condition , The guitar's original orange label seriel number is A34497 which dates it to early 1960, all the pots date to the 18th week of 1960. It has come from the only original owner who cherished the instrument until i purchased the guitar . I also have several pictures of the original owner with his guitar over a 20 year period. It is a sweet sounding guitar that is 100% all original down to the stereo cable and tags. It has all original finish that has checked quite a lot but its better to see an original guitar with checking than one that with a questionable finish, and this guitar as soon as you hold it , is unmistakable real untouched vintage peice which is getting rarer and rarer these days. especially with so much molested junk around. Here we have a very clean peice that is mint all round except it has faded a bit on top. the back is mint 10/10 and the neck has only a couple of bits of wear. It has all original electrics, including stereo varitone, 2 amazing sounding stickerd patent applied for pafs, all pots dated and switchcraft 3 wat switch, Also has original kluson tuners with patent numbers on the underside, Abr-1 tunamatic and gold stop tail. All hardware is gold plated still with some wear on the gold. Original strap pins, Had a bigsby for a year in 61 now off with its original stop tail back on, unnoticable though. stereo truss rod cover, Long guard which is so cool better looking than the small later period guard The guitar sound so good !! it really is one of the better sounding paf guitars from this period and was a lot more money and sound than a b
