1960 GibsonES-345 – Cherry

Here’s a juicy 1960 Gibson ES-345TDC in its original “Watermelon-ed” Cherry finish for you! This PAF-equipped semi-hollow body is extremely resonant, and playing is a breeze in its current setup with a slinky feel and snappy response. This guitar has been fretted, and bends are pure joy on this piece, thanks to it! Aside from the switch to mono and refret, this piece is original and would make an incredibly functional and beautiful piece for anyone! This exact guitar also had a spot in Joe Bonamassa’s stable at one point, which may explain why there was a refret and change to mono wiring.
