❌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 ES335 Dot Neck Thinline Electric Sunburst, 1959

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES335 Dot Neck Thinline Electric Sunburst, 1959

This Gibson ES335 Dot Neck Thinline, built during 1959 features the now standard construction – Maple laminate top, back and sides, Maple center block, Mahogany neck and bound Rosewood fingerboard.   For these early models, the Rosewood used was sourced from Brazil – at the time, this was an extremely common wood and used on even low cost instruments.  This guitar was originally shipped with a Bigsby tailpiece; this was removed, put in the case, and replaced with a stop tailpiece.

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

❌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.

Built from 1981 to 1985, the Hamer Prototype was unique for its time and introduced a number of concepts that are now commonplace on production guitars, and not just on custom builds. Paul Hamer and Jol Dantzig opened Hamer Guitars in Willamette, Illinois in 1973 and began building custom designs based on Explorer and Flying V body shapes, with wild finishes and unusual hardware combinations.
