Olivia's Vintage would like to present this 1959 Gibson ES-345 in its original Sunburst finish. It has a great playing neck with great frets and a 1960 neck profile. It's all original with the possible exception of the nut, and is 100% complete along with its original hardshell case, original HANG TAG with a matching serial number, key to the case, owner's manuals, and the original envelope. A newer set of aged tuning keys are included along with the original set of single-line Kluson Deluxe tuning keys. The newer set is currently on the guitar to help preserve the original shrunken buttons on the original set. There is some very slight seam separation on the bottom edge of the body along with chipping in the finish along those seams. This appears to be more of a cosmetic issue as the guitar remains structurally sound. This ES-345 looks great with some minor nicks + dings, a few areas of extremely minor finish checking, and other cosmetic wear. All electronics work and sound great with its original set of PAF pickups.

Our guitars are usually packed the same business day that we receive payment. We take the utmost care when packing our guitars and basses to assure that they arrive safely. We detune all guitars so that there is no tension on the neck, then the guitar is packed inside the case so that it does not move during shipment. After the guitar is safely packaged inside the case we wrap the case with several layers of half-inch tall bubble wrap. After the guitar is wrapped it is placed into one of our custom-made double-walled cardboard boxes of the appropriate size. We then use packing peanuts or packing paper to fill any negative space in the box so that the guitar is secured with several inches of padding and does not move around. This way, even if the guitar is mishandled during shipment, it will arrive safe and sound. Our guitars are usually shipped the same business day that we receive payment. Most of our guitars are shipped UPS, and items are always fully insured. If you would like a guitar shipped with FedEx or USPS, please let us know and we can accommodate your needs. Because of insurance the price of shipping will vary, so please email us for an exact shipping quote. Shipping for most guitars will be around $50.
If you feel that we have misrepresented anything, please contact us within 48 hours, and ship the guitar back to us. After we receive the guitar and it is in the same condition as when it was sold, we will give you a full refund minus the shipping charges.
