This one is a bit of a mystery - an ES-350 Custom body with a Super 400 style neck! The Serial Number on the white label is A13845, which dates it to 1953. There is what appears to be a small ink mark on the inside of bass side (a single number), but I can't tell what it is or if it was part of a Factory Order Number. The tuners are stamped "Kluson Deluxe" but have no patent numbers or other markings underneith. Thera re no makings on the bridge or tailpiece either.The pickguard is a reissue. The scale length is currently 25", but it can be brought up to 25.5" by moving the bridge down a little bit. The width is 17" at the lower bout and it's about 3.75" thick (including the rise from the arched top and back). The guitar as a whole is in very good condition.
The body has no cracks and no major wear - just some checking on the binding in a few places. There is overspray on the fretboard where the neck meets the body, so it may have had a neck reset at one point and may have been partially refinished. The neck appears to be straight and the frets show very little wear. I never heard it with pickups or electronics installed, but it has a very nice sound acoustically and is in excellent playing condition.It may take several hours to package your items and send the combined invoice, so please be patient.
