GIBSON 1964 ES 345 MONO OLIVE DRAB GREEN MONO VOS


The 1964 ES-345 Olive Drab Green VOS is a historically accurate re-creation of this much loved semi. It comes in an exotic alternative vintage finish that never made it to the originals of the ’60s. That’s complemented by split parallelogram fingerboard inlays and period-correct plastics, hot hide glue neck and body construction, matched potentiometer sets, rolled fingerboard binding and a great set of MHS humbuckers for true PAF tone.

Accurate 1964 body An accurately shaped 1964 body is complemented by the ES-345’s upgraded binding Vintage-correct fingerboard Split-parallelogram inlays are a classic hallmark of the ES-345 Matched potentiometers Matched 550K potentiometers provide improved output and high frequency response from pickups Historic construction The neck is attached with hot hide glue, as are the quarter-sawn spruce Adirondack top braces Historic truss rod Like the originals our Historic truss rod has no tube, a feature known to enhance the guitar’s resonance and sustain MHS pickups Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers are our most accurate PAF clones yet Period-correct frets Custom finish This retro custom color is applied in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer, gently aged in our VOS process
