You are looking at a Gibson Limited Run Freddie King 1960 ES-345 Sixties Cherry VOS Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar #176 of 200, serial number A09483. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 3.7 oz.)

Limited to only 200 instruments, Gibson Memphis honors late legendary blues guitarist Freddie King with an outstanding re-creation of his beloved '60 ES-345.

Crafted from laminate maple top, back, and sides, the Limited Run Freddie King 1960 ES-345 Sixties Cherry VOS features a historically-accurate '60s-style "Mouse Ear" body shape, and is adorned with multi-ply binding and  an alternative nitro lacquer Sixties Cherry VOS finish that never made its appearance on the original '60s models. The semi-hollow construction paired with authentic hot hide glue adhesive for the Adirondack spruce braces and the neck joint provide a beautifully resonant vintage-inspired tone and superb tonal transfer. For a classic playing feel, the Freddie King 1960 ES-345 sports a vintage-style "C" mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard with 22 period-correct frets. Tan neck binding and aged cellulose split parallelogram inlays cater to this ES-345's old-school Gibson vibe.

Equipped with a set of historically-correct Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) humbuckers, a traditional 4-knob control layout featuring matched 550k pots, and an onboard Varitone switch, the Freddie King 1960 ES-345 Sixties Cherry VOS can serve up an array of sweet, classic PAF tones that'll satisfy any blues player.

Other vintage-inspired appointments include a nylon nut, a Historic tubeless truss rod assembly, and VOS'd gold hardware including a set of Kluson vintage-style tuners and a no wire ABR bridge paired with a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece.

The Gibson Memphis Limited Run Freddie King 1960 ES-345 Sixties Cherry VOS comes complete with vintage engraved "Freddie King" truss rod cover, a period-correct hardshell case, a Gibson Memphis Certificate of Authenticity, and a stereo cable.
