This is a very special guitar. It is an original ES-355 with factory stop tailpiece and PAFs, with the Varitone removed and converted to mono electronics. It has been refretted, and inlaid at the 20th fret are the initials " C W" of its previous owner, the late Charley Wirz. Charley was the original owner of Charley's Guitar Shop in Dallas, and one of the founders of the Dallas Guitar Show in 1978. This was his favorite guitar. Really vibey, with lots of tone and soul. Comes with original 5-latch brown Lifton hard case. A superb-playing guitar that is very rare - again, one of only 20 ES-355s with factory stop tailpiece made between 1958-1963. One only, here it is! From my personal collection.
