Gibson ES345 TD Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1966

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

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.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson ES-175 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1962

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson ES-175 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1962

The Gibson ES-175 was immediately popular with jazz players. The body is constructed as a single florentine (sharp) cutaway, using maple laminates for feedback rejection. This was becoming increasingly important as audience sizes increased, requiring higher stage volumes that are seriously problematic for hollow body instruments. These work so well that eventually, an ES-175 built not long after this one wound up on some of the world’s largest rock stages in the hands of ‘Yes’ guitarist Steve Howe.

This Douglas Harrison GB jazz guitar features a stunning hand carved spalted maple top with deep vibrant flame figure, a chambered tropical mahogany body that has been subtly shaded on the edges to enhance its natural warm glow — all offset by some premium Macassar ebony utilized in the fingerboard, tailpiece, bridge and peghead veneer.
