⭕ 1960 Gibson ES-345 Stereo, with a Cherry Finish, gold hardware and a Bigsby! Have you ever shopped for wood flooring, and the salesman showed you a laminate knock-off, look-alike, and tried to convince you that it was better than the real thing? Well, as you know, there is nothing like the REAL THING... and thats exactly what this guitar is. If youve been playing on 60s neck profiles on newer models, theres nothing like a real 1960 profile... if youve been listening to the tone of a Burstbucker or a 57 Classic, theres nothing like the tone of a REAL GIBSON PAF!

She just celebrated her 51th birthday, and has been played over the years, but well cared for! This is no poser, relic that was created in a custom shop... This is a true rock & roll hero, with the vibe and charector that can only be developed by time and experience. This is a great axe all the way. Yes, there is finish checking, nicks, dings and scratches on this guitar, but nothing major or out of the ordinary. In fact, this is certainly what most collectors would consider Excellent condition for a 51 year old guitar. The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs, and the truss rod is still functional. The frets appear to have been replaced at some point, and are in great playing shape... and the sound is as sweet as it gets! I also forgot to mention that the lower strap peg has come off (as shown in the pics)... please be aware; this is a Stereo guitar, so in order to get the full benefit of the out-put, you will need to get the proper Y-Cable. Also included is the original case, which has plenty of wear, including a zip-tie which is securing half of the handing in place... and it has a London sticker on the lid (which is kind of cool... so I left it in place!) All of this can be viewed in the pics! Whoever wins this vintage piece of history is gonna be completely STOKED!!
