Gibson Vintage 1960 ES-345TDSV with 59 Features + RA-79RTV Stereo Amp ES345 345
Thank you for viewing this vintage 1960 Gibson ES-345TDSV! We have this stunning, all-original vintage 345 paired with its natural mate, a Gibson GA-79RVT Stereo Amplifier! The guitar is all-original, right down to the gold PAFs and pots. Unlike many 345s out there, this fine example was never robbed of its pickups or stereo wiring harness. The original owner bought the guitar from our store back in 1960. Inside the case you will find some original vintage Gibson replacement strings, along with the original strap! The string package is labeled as a 040 L set. Inside the string box are a replacement flat-wound 4th, 5th and 6th strings from the 040 L set. However, it has many 59 features, making it a very cool transitional model. The neck profile is a slim taper and feels very much like an early 1960; thinner than your average'59 but not as thin as your average'60. The Kluson Deluxe tuners have the shrinking plastic, which are typically found on 1959 models. The keystone keys have been treated by a luthier so that they should not shrink any further. It has top hat knobs, not the reflector knobs found later in 1960. Another 59esque feature is the brown and pink Lifton case. The guitar is 100% original, down to the wiring harness and enclosed pots. As with many vintage Electric Spanish models, the area around the output jack has been repaired at some point.
PSA: Please use right-angled plugs kids! The GA-79RVT Stereo Amplifier was marketed by Gibson right alongside the ES-345. Using a TRS cable, this amp allows this guitar to truly sing in stereo as it was meant to, without needing to bring along a second amplifier and a special Y cable. We will include a Y cable and TRS cable along with the guitar and amplifier.
The guitar has been professionally inspected set-up with round-wound 10-46 strings and plays like a dream! We plan on posting a video demonstration along with this listing in the near future. Please visit our 18,000 Square Foot store in Kenosha, WI one hour north of Chicago, IL!
