Mid year 1959 ES-345 in stunning collector grade condition. Guitar shows only minor wear to the gold parts and no wear to the finish other than some light all over checking. This is mid to late 59-early enough for the black Varitone ring but late enough to have a somewhat smaller neck profile. Bigger than the late 59 "transitional" profile but not as large as a "first rack" 59. Neck measures .85" at the first fret and .95" at the 12th. Everything except the nut and one tuner tip appears to be original including the frets. Proper no wire bridge, short seam lightweight stop tail, gold single line Kluson tuners, long guard and so on. Sealed PAFs. This guitar retains its original stereo circuit and Varitone. Clean Gibson badged case with a replaced handle.
