A stunning guitar and probably one of the very first ES-350 T's to be equipped with PAF pickups, in fact this is the earliest example we could find with pre-sticker 1957 PAF's and stainless steel covers. What's more, as far as we can tell, it is 100% correct, no breaks or repairs, no finish issues and has not been tomb raided by the parts monkeys.

A stunning guitar and probably one of the very first ES-350 T’s to be equipped with PAF pickups, in fact this is the earliest example we could find with pre-sticker 1957 PAF’s and stainless steel covers. What’s more, as far as we can tell, it is 100% correct, no breaks or repairs, no finish issues and has not been tomb raided by the parts monkeys.
A beautiful example, in exceptional condition with all correct parts and a lovely flamey burst that would be worthy of a 300k price tag if it was on a Les Paul Standard. This ES-350T is the nicest one we have seen for a very long time and the most original too.
Serial number dates it as mid 1957 and it must have been one of the first to leave Kalamazoo with PAF pickups. The pickups themselves are very special being very early ‘57 PAF’s with no sticker and stainless steel covers that if they ever were gold plated, has totally worn off. They are all original too with undisturbed and unbroken solder on the covers. In fact from what I can see inside the guitar with a mirror, there is not a single solder joint disturbed and all pot cans are still sealed.
Original frets are in good shape and there is hardly any marks on the lovely rosewood fingerboard. A sure sign that it has had flat wounds on for most of it’s life.
Cosmetic condition is a strong excellent plus with just a few small dings here and there - have a look at the photos. There are no finish issues, no over spray anywhere and no breaks, repairs, neck resets or any other funny business anywhere all.
All parts are correct and in superb shape including the burst style bonnet knobs, Kluson gold single line tuners and that nice amber switch tip.. Comes complete with the Lifton brown case with the pink lining.
Easy to play due to the slightly shorter scale and sounds pretty amazing due to the monster PAF’s fitted. This guitar will make a very welcome addition to any respectable ES collection.
