    The guitar is in showroom condition with perhaps some minor nitro swirls. It has been played about an hour and has been in storage since. This particular guitar was chosen because it had the darkest rosewood of the lot. It is set up very well. It has the case candy and original case in excellent++ condition.

    I looked at Reverb to see what these are selling for. I am asking $3600 plus shipping.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I have an original '64(-ish) with patent-sticker pups, gold hardware and a trapeze tailpiece; identical to the one pictured on the sheet music to "Sweet Sixteen" by B.B. King, which I used to keep in the case so B.B. could autograph it if I ever ran into him.


    Whoever gets this is going to have a mighty fine music making machine that is not only ear- but eye- candy as well. Best of luck with the sale!

    For those who read the full description, it claims there is figured wood under that finish.

    I do like the Memphis Historic Spec pickups. They do sound PAF-ish certainly.

    I've owned some of the 1960s ES-345s. This has more of a medium neck carve than the slim 60s.

    A wonderful looking instrument!

    I have a 2015 Memphis '64 reissue (different finish) and it's my favourite guitar.

    The rounded '60s 'C' profile is great; not thin, not fat, just comfortable. As the OP says, the rosewood stash they used on these was beautifully dark compared to many recent Gibsons.

    The MHS pickups are really nice with an underwound, articulate vibe that I love. Even the much maligned varitone is useful, IMO, for more hollowed-out tones in the first few positions (although I like these with more driven sounds).

    I'm no expert and have never played a vintage 345 but I've read that these late era Memphis semis were considered particularly nice instruments by many and I love mine. Good luck with the sale.

    I couldn't agree more. I have a lot of experience with the Gibson semi-hollows over the decades, from the 60s onward. The 64 reissues were as good as they ever got IMO. A friend of mine who plays chord melody is a Lucille fan. He has two from the same Memphis era and says they're the best he's ever played, and he's played them for decades. I am retaining another 64 reissue 345 in cherry because that was a redo of my original gigging guitar from back in the day and is nostalgic.
