Gibson ES-345 1959 (Consignment) SOLD

The late 50’s were a pivotal point in the evolution of Gibson guitars. Their innovative thinline electric design with a solid wood block inside the hollow body gave players the sustain of a solid body and the looks and feel of a hollowbody. The ES 345 added the concept of a stereo guitar with a Vari-Tone circuit which provided six different preset tones. This beautiful first year ES-345 has had a few minor modifications and a bit of general play ware. When you pick up a guitar like this you can almost feel the history and incredible musical vibes running through your hands!
