Gibson Custom

An accurate re-creation of the great Bluesman's main axe.

The stunning 1964 ES-345 Sixties Cherry VOS is a historically accurate re-creation of this beloved guitar played by the great Freddie King, dressed in an exotic alternative vintage finish that never made it to the originals of the '60s. In addition to its luscious looks 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 much more, with a great set of MHS humbuckers for true PAF tone.

Includes hardshell case.
