Instrument Categories: , , , ,

The 1964 Gibson ES-345 VOS 1964 in Olive Drab Green finish is a historically accurate re-creation of this much loved semi-hollow electric archtop guitar. Now discontinued, this was builta at the now-closed MEmphis plant.

While historically accurate in terms of construction and dimensions, the ES-345 VOS 1964 comes in an exotic alternative vintage finish that never made it to the originals of the ’60. This is complemented by split parallelogram fingerboard inlays and period-correct plastics, hot hide glue neck and body construction, matched potentiometer sets, rolled fingerboard binding and a great set of MHS humbuckers for true PAF tone.

This is a very nice guitar to play. I personally find Gibson necks of this era to be the most comfortable to my hand – they are a bit narrower at the nut hand have a slimmer profile than the 50’s models. The Bigsby works well. It’s mounted far enough back from the bridge to provide a decent pitch range, while still allowing subtle shades. The original Gibson hardshell case is included.
