Super rare all original 1962 Gibson ES-345 TDC Stereo semi hollow special ordered with nickel hardware instead of the usual gold, looks fantastic with nickel parts and as time goes by they wear much better. Typically this model would have gold hardware, as most enthusiasts know however, Gibson’s gold plating was very thin and wore off easily with normal usage. No modifications or repairs, a perfectly straight neck with a working truss rod. All original electronics, factory wired stereo, early patent number Humbucking pickups with unmolested nickel covers, all factory solder joints intact. Thin neck with stock large frets, no fret wear only minor usage wear present in the form of some small superficial scratches, and a few small dings, one on the upper portion of the back of the neck. Easily near mint all original, certainly one of the best examples available for sale now. Beautiful glossy clean unfaded cherry finnish, no weather checking or other cosmetic issues, very clean as new appearance. As with many near mint instruments this one comes with the original Gibson Stereo Varitone instruction sheet, the Tune-O-Matic instruction sheet and the PAF instructions, all of which are folded up in the original manila envelope as well as the original black, large pebble hard shell case with yellow interior. A fantastic collectors grade investment and a great instrument, a must for any strunged arsenal where a stereo application may be needed. Only $12500. Thanks VGA
