Description

Upmarket Historic semi in a supreme alternative finish

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.

Features

Accurate '64 body
An accurately shaped '64 body is complemented by the ES-345's upgraded binding

Vintage-correct fingerboard
Split-parallelogram inlays are a classic hallmark of the ES-345

Matched potentiometers
Matched 550K potentiometers provide improved output and high frequency response from pickups

Historic construction

The neck is attached with hot hide glue, as are the quarter-sawn spruce Adirondack top braces

Historic truss rod

Like the originals our Historic truss rod has no tube, a feature known to enhance the guitar's resonance and sustain

MHS pickups

Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers are our most accurate PAF clones yet

Period-correct frets

Using fret wire of precise vintage specs delivers a warm tone with additional sustain

Custom finish

This retro custom color is applied in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer, gently aged in our VOS process
