1962 Gibson ES-345 Stereo Electric Guitar

via this auction where you'll find more pics.

"1962 Sunburst Thinline ES-345 with PAFs in stunning condition. The finish is incredible and shows almost no sign of wear. It has a fairly light iced tea sunburst on the front, and a darker spray on the back with the sunburst going up and down the neck from the headstock to the neck joint. The PAFs are typical mid to high output, just what you would want and expect. It plays perfectly and sounds incredible. Mickey mouse ears, original finish, frets. The only items that separate this from new are: Some tuner buttons shrunk, exact replacements installed, and originals included, small amount of wear on the neck and fingerboard from play on the first couple of frets. Wiring harness is untouched, varitone still connected and working properly, no breaks anywhere. Some bridge saddles may have been replaced, but that's it. Original case in good condition. A fifty year old guitar that looks like it is a couple of years old, except, this is from the golden era and some of the tastiest licks and solos have been played on guitars just like this one. It is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, and pretty much like it just came out of a time capsule, and perfectly set up by my tech. You will not find a major scratch or nick on this guitar, and the headstock has virtually nothing but clean edges..."
