This has been a rough pandemic on a lot of different level for everyone still above ground.

I've wanted one of these since I bumped into a guy carrying a 335-ish case when I was in my early 20s and I asked if I could see what was inside it.

For surviving nearly a year (mostly) trapped indoors with my wife, I decided what the hell, bite the bullet and do it SO it should be here next week.  

In the meantime, here's what will be on the UPS truck soon, a 2008 ES-345 with the coveted ToneSuck Device, stereo and slim neck.

Yup.  You will have the seriously good Gibson collection.   Need more amps and pedals.

Well, that might take a bit of work to schlep them all into one heap, it's been a long lockdown . You always see the stereo because that's where the good light is in this house, there's a picture

I can almost hear Sister Seagull on it.

Das a nice.

That is one, 2 more make a perfect pair.

Somebody in Lynyrd Skynrd had a 345?  I didn't know that.  The only people I ever saw with one was Freddie King and Elvin Bishop, I thought the guy from Be Bop Deluxe had a 335.

This forced indoor time really got me thinking about all of the guitars I drooled over as a kid and then put out of my mind as I grew up and put the guitars on the back burner.

I always wanted a 3 pick up SG Custom like that 60th Anniversary but in all honesty, I'd seldom play it and it would be a case queen.

I KNOW this 345 will see a lot of use.

Yeah..  I dont regret getting my 336 for a second.. I would have liked a new one but it doesnt really matter that much as it in very good condition..  Pretty much as I would expect for one of my own guitars thats over a decade old.

And if you mean its the end of the line cos you will soon have your dream guitar and wont want any others..  You are probably right 😄

Ed King played a 1964  ES-345, on and off, throughout the years. 

He played a lot of guitars. 
Really well.

I used to own a 1959 ES345 with original PAF’s that looked like yours.. In retrospect it was the best sounding Guitar I’ve ever played or owned.. I was offered too much $$$ & sold it... 
 

Congrats on yours! It’s a beauty!

I don't even know what that is and I want it.  Very Nice!

Good deal to see Ed King mentioned.  Don't hear enough about that guy.  What a guitar player and writer.
