One of the most beautiful flame top and back we have ever seen on any guitar. The 1950 ES-350 also plays real well and is a bit of a bargain...
Sorry, this item was sold out.
There is some totally stunning flame all over on this amazing ES-350 that our harsh studio fluorescent lighting washes out so we have included some iPhone pics taken in natural daylight so you can get some idea of how it really looks…
This is a super 1950 Gibson ES-350 full size guitar with two original and powerful vintage P-90’s. It was modified a very long time ago from its original volume, tone and master volume controls to the standard Gibson four pot layout with two volumes and two tones plus a three way selector switch. This was done by adding an extra volume and tone and swapping out the master volume for a three way Switchcraft switch.
It has also had a jack repair by a neat wooden panel attached to the jack socket and has no pickguard but with flame like this, you could argue why you would want to cover it up with a pickguard.
The good news, aside from the flame, is the pickups are correct as is the hardware and it comes in a nice brown Lifton case with pink lining. It also has a big fat neck and plays very well on the original frets and fingerboard.
Have a look at the pics, you will see that this is not a case Queen and has been used. There is wear on the back of the neck and various dings all over but there are no breaks, no repairs and no finish touch ups or overspray. Most of the gold plating has worn off but you can see it was once there and looks quite cool like this.
Last original four pot blonde ES-350 with flame we sold went for £9,500 two years ago so this could well be a very cool players bargain…
