1965 Gibson ES-345 TDC
For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1965 Gibson ES 345 TDC
This is a clean example of a player vintage Gibson ES-345 that has been played but has also been well taken care of over the years. This instrument shows wear that is consistent with a guitar from the mid-1960s with some light checking. This guitar is very easy to play with low action and very little buzzing. The frets are in great shape and they have lots of life left. OK now here is the kicker, it was professionally converted to a period-correct stop tailpiece and the choke was changed to a period-correct choke on the Varitone by Luthier John Warden who also converted it to mono. The ABR-1 is original although the saddles were changed from nylon to metal. Nut width is 1 11/16" and it has a larger late '64 neck profile.
The original tailpiece is included and the electronics could be converted back at the buyer's discretion. The pickups are patent sticker Humbuckers and only the neck pickups cover was removed. The Gold hardware is in excellent shape throughout. Comes with a non-original hardshell case. Original ES's are getting harder to find and the prices have skyrocketed but this is an opportunity to have a killer big neck ES for considerably less than an original version.
