Gibson / ES345 VOS Alpine White Limited Bigsby / 2008 / Guitar

2008 Gibson ES345 VOS Limited edition in a very hard to find Alpine White finish. The original ES-345 debuted in 1959 in response to demand for an upgrade on the revolutionary new semi-hollowbody design of the ES-335, with Stereo Vari-tone electronics and double-parallelogram inlay. The ES-345 was perfect for use with both channels of a Fender Twin. This stunning Limited Edition takes this model to the next level with not only the gold hardware but also a factory installed Bigsby tailpiece. Other features include a 3-ply maple body construction, a great feeling 60s slim tapered mahogany neck with bound rosewood fingerboard, split parallelogram position markers and abalone Gibson logo and Crown headstock inlay. The previous owner added their own touch to this guitar by replacing the original tune-o-matic with a roller bridge and the tuners with Sperzel Locking tuners greatly improving the stability of this instrument. The two outputs of the guitar have also been altered and now provide identical mono signals. The condition of this instrument is very good with some discoloration in the white finish, one spot on the back of the body with heavier discoloration, pickup covers are faded gold, quite some dings, playwear and other signs of use, frets look great. Includes original hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
