  • Price:$6200.00





Description: 1949 Gibson ES-350 electric guitar in sunburst finish. This is a stunning example of one of Gibson's finest hollow body jazzboxes. Recently acquired & professionally set up by our own master luthier.

Cosmetic Condition: The guitar has aged quite nicely, displaying a gorgeous patina & very light wear - some minor nicks & chips; light play wear; light weather checking & some cracking around the input jack. Most of the cracks are only in the surface of the wood & only a couple actually penetrate all the way through.  They are not severe & do not affect the stability of the output jack.  There is no movement when pressure is applied.  The original base for the bridge pickup had deteriorated, so our luthier made a new one for it.

Neck: Slightly chunky maple neck with nicely aged, cream-colored binding & black side-dot markers. Beautiful Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with double parallelogram inlays. Original frets are in good condition with some light wear & plenty of life in them. Bound headstock with ebony overlay & pearloid Gibson inlaid logo. Gold Kluson Deluxe tuners in perfect working condition. The high E tuner is slightly bent, but still fully functional. 1 11/16" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length.

Body: Double-bound, single-cutaway, hollow maple body with dual F-holes. There is some really pretty flaming in the maple in both the top & back. Trapeze tailpiece; floating rosewood bridge; 4-ply black pickguard.

Pickups: Dual P-90 single coil pickups. Bridge - 7.75K ohms; Neck - 7.66K ohms. Master volume; master tone; pickup blend.  Original clear barrel knobs.

Set Up:  Professionally set up by our master luthier & strung with brand new Ernie Ball .11-.48 gauge Slinkys.

Playability / Sound: Nice, low action; smooth playing neck - very comfortable; gorgeous tone - very rich & warm sounding.  A truly beautiful sounding jazzy guitar.

Case: Original hardshell case included. The case is a little worn & the "feet" on the bottom are missing, but overall it's in pretty good condition.
