Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

Originally released in 1958 the Flying V introduced a radical and futuristic body shape which became an iconic staple of rock and roll and heavy metal! The Gibson Flying V 2017 T pays tribute to design features that became common place through the 70’s while using alternate woods such as Grenadillo for the fretboard. The Gibson Flying V 2017 T uses a large double wing mahogany body attached to a slim taper mahogany neck, which is very fast playing with the ultimate access to the upper frets due to the body design. There is really no body mass getting in the way of your hand when reaching for the highest notes.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES345 1964 Reissue Frost Blue, 2019

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES345 1964 Reissue Frost Blue, 2019

This is a treat – one of the last pieces from the now-closed Memphis plant, a Gibson ES345 1964 Reissue in Frost Blue with nickel plated hardware. Gibson hit the mark squarely in 1958 with the introduction of the groundbreaking thinline semi-hollow concept, coupled with their new humbucking pickups. The ES-335 and upscale ES-355 were an immediate hit, and in 1959 the line was filled out with the mid-range ES-345, which also sported Split Parallelogram position markers and a six-position Varitone circuit, but not the Stereo outputs or extra binding of the ES-355.

❌SOLD❌Gibson Memphis ES345 64 Reissue Sea Foam Green, 2016

Here’s a beauty from the now-closed shop – a Gibson Memphis ES345 64 Reissue thinline archtop electric in an unusual Sea Foam Green finish! This was a limited edition model for the 2016 year. Introduced in 1958 as a midpoint between the groundbreaking ES-335 and upscale ES-355, the Gibson ES-345 featured the same core construction as the two bracketing models. A thinline body built with Maple laminate and a solid Maple center block, routed for pickups, and a Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard are common to the three models (except for the ES355’s Ebony fingerboard with Mother of Pearl block markers).

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES 345 1964 Reissue Cherry, 2017

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES 345 1964 Reissue Cherry, 2017

The Gibson ES 345 appeared in 1958 as one of the two ‘upmarket’ versions of the ground breaking new ES-335, and featured a Varitone switch and Stereo outputs. Here we’re looking at a Gibson ES 345 in its 1964 Reissue form, built during 2017 at the now-closed Memphis, Tennessee plant. This lovely piece is in very good condition with negligible wear.
The body and neck are built in the traditional manner, with Maple Laminate used for the top, back and sides and a solid Maple center block.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES345 TD Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1966

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES345 TD Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1966

Here is a very nice and largely original Gibson ES345 TD in sunburst finish and with a Trapeze tailpiece, built during 1966 at the Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  On the label, the TD in the model name stand for ‘Thinline Double Pickup’. Sometimes you’ll see a ‘C’ added, which denotes Cherry finish. ‘ES’ stands for Electric Spanish, referring to the way the instrument is built and played – another Gibson option was ‘EH’ for Electric Hawaiian, used on steel and lap steel guitars played with a bar, steel or slide.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-345TD ‘Domenic Troiano’ Electric Thinline, Cherry, 1960

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES-345TD 'Domenic Troiano' Electric Thinline, Cherry, 1960

This Gibson ES-345TD was built during 1960 at the historic Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It has its original PAF pickups, and the Varitone has been disconnected. The bridge has been changed to a later ABR patent number bridge. It has been refretted – no fretwire could withstand the amount of use this guitar received. It’s very likely it was refretted at The Twelfth Fret.
