Just bought #23. I love it. Not a big fan of ordering unseen,but this guitar does not disappoint. Playability tone intonation in tune. It has a neck similar in thickness and feel to my RI '57 LP.

      Comments about Gibson Custom Freddie King ES-345 Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

      I purchased this guitar e/w the Bigsby tailpiece back in 1967 and unfortunately sold it 20 years latter when my playing ended. It was coupled with a Vox Super Beatle and Boss Tone and a few pedals that existed at the time. It had great tone variation due to the Vari-tone control and could mimic most any guitar sound at the time.
