1964 GIBSON ES-345 STOPTAIL


via this auction
"This particular guitar has a unique Colorado twist as she has had a custom re-neck designed and installed by the famous vintage Colorado Lutherie, NBN Guitars here in Boulder/Longmont. Monty Novotny, Bernie Nettesheim, and Reb Bennett had formerly worked for the Ode banjo company and, under the NBN mast, built high end custom masterclass instruments back in the 1960s and 1970s. The dead giveaway is the distinctive rounded volute and binding that's characteristic of the NBN builds during those years."
