About the Gibson ES-350 1952

Gibson introduced the ES-350 in 1947 at this time it was Gibson’s first electric cutaway. In 1949 it became a double-pickup guitar, making this a fairly early example. Barney Kessel and Tal Farlow are just two of the Jazz greats to have made notable use of this model.

The ES-350 is a fancy guitar with an all-maple body. This example has a very nice tiger stripe grain on top and back. Throughout the years the original five-ply laminated pickguard has been changed with a tortoise style pickguard. The original bracket is still there. Like a lot of old Gibson hollow bodies the original tailpiece is also missing. It’s been changed with a gold replica tailpiece. We equipped the Gibson with a gold TOM-bridge, because we like the sound and look of it. Don’t worry; the original wooden bridge is still there.

The neck is three piece maple with a factory black stinger. The bound rosewood fretboard features gorgeous double parallelogram inlays. The headstock is also single-bound with a mother-of-pearl crown and Gibson logo inlaid. The original single ring Kluson tuners are also in wonderful condition.

The tobacco sunburst finish has aged beautifully throughout the years. It does have a repaired crack around the output, see pictures. Unfortunately quite common on vintage guitars. Other than that, there are no other cracks or damages.

So there you have it. An excellent player and a fine example of the Gibson electric archtop tradition. The ES-350 comes with a modern hard shell case.
