2016 1964 ES-345 Classic White VOS
Upmarket Historic semi in a supreme alternative finish
$4,999
Historically accurate re-creation of this beloved upmarket semi, in an exotic alternative vintage finish that never made it to the originals of the '60s. Its glorious looks are complemented by split parallelogram fingerboard inlays and period-correct plastics. This guitar features hot hide glue neck and body construction, matched potentiometer sets, rolled fingerboard binding and a great set of MHS humbuckers for true PAF tone.
