From a builder’s description of the Gibson Memphis ES345 64 Reissue:
“Gibson Memphis is pleased to introduce a striking Limited Edition model for the 2016 line up with the Limited Run 1964 ES-345 Sea Foam Green. This gorgeous semi combines the vintage-accurate ’64 specs of their legendary high-end ES-345 model with a rare, beautiful ’60s Sea Foam Green VOS finish–a finish that never made it to the original models.
For that world-famous ES tone and resonance that we’ve come to know and love over the years, the 1964 ES-345 Sea Foam Green sports a semi-hollow body featuring slim cutaways with ’63 rims, a solid center block, and authentic hot hide glue top bracing and neck joint. The exotic Sea Foam Green finish has undergone Gibson’s exclusive VOS treatment to cater to its old-school appeal, and cream binding further enhances the vintage vibe.
The neck is shaped into a period-correct ’64 Rounded C neck profile to give this ES-345 that classic Gibson comfort while the superbly playable rosewood fretboard boasts luxurious rolled cream binding and aged split parallelogram inlays.The Limited Run 1964 ES-345 Sea Foam Green VOS comes fitted with a pair of vintage-correct Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) humbuckers to serve up all the pure time-tested PAF tone you could ever want.
The electronics consist of independent volume and tone controls for each pickup featuring matching potentiometers, a 3-position toggle and a Varitone switch for unparalleled tonal versatility.Wrapping up this attractive vintage-inspired package, the Limited Run 1964 ES-345 Sea Foam Green comes equipped with period-correct plastics, a set of vintage-style tuners, a nickel ABR-1 bridge with nylon saddles, and a stopbar tailpiece.
Comes complete with a hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity.”
