1959 Gibson ES-345s are frequently referred to as “burst killers” and this guitar is a perfect example of why! One of the best sounding ES guitars we’ve played, this extremely clean 345 comes to us from a large collection, and is a rare “First Rack” example. The original “PAF” humbucking pickups and “Vari-tone” circuit provide for a wide array of incredible tones that definitely rival some of the best Les Pauls. The guitar also features a large profile ’59 neck, early long pickguard, split parallelogram inlays, single-line Kluson tuners, and a brown Lifton case. If you’re looking for an early ES-345 with a phenomenal tone, this is certainly one of the best out there! EXC w/OHSC $24,500
