List price: $4,603.00
Sale Price: $2,999.00

Available: 1959 to 1982
Collectibility Rating: 1959-1960 models: B, 1960-1964 models: C+, 1965 to 1969 models: C-. The stereo varitone limits the popularity of this model. A vibrato tailpiece on the 1959 to 1964 models hurts demand of this guitar too.

mid 1960 ES-345 specs:
Shorter pickguard that does not extend past bridge pickup, gold ring around Vari-tone switch, cherry finish available.
1965 ES-345 specs:
Trapeze tailpiece replaces stop tailpiece.
1969 ES-345 specs:
Walnut finish available.
ES-345 discontinued 1982.

3 grand! What a price. What year was his Gibson made? And he is another Jamiroquai musician I have not heard much about. I wonder if he still has this guitar? That Fender Bassman really is oldschool. Built to last.

am checkin out the site now: http://www.fender.com/products/search.php

hmm...I like the AMerican Deluxe Telecaster. It's a black beauty!
