One Of A Handful Of Gibson ES-350TNs With A Carved Spruce Top.

 

1956 Gibson ES-350TN.

 

Single Venetian (round) cutaway. This super rare guitar was only made in the 'T' format with two P-90's in 1956. This is one of the very last of the sixty-two P-90 ES-350TN's shipped in 1956 (compared with one hundred and fifty-six Sunburst ES-350TD's also shipped that year). This 17-inch-wide guitar weighs just 6.30 lbs. and has a nice, fat nut width of just over 1 5/8 inches and a short scale length of 23 1/2 inches. Lightly flamed laminated maple body with triple binding on the top and bottom edges, three-piece lightly flamed maple/mahogany/maple neck, and bound Brazilian rosewood fretboard with 20 original thin frets and inlaid pearl split-parallelogram position markers. Headstock with inlaid pearl "Gibson" logo and pearl crown inlay. Back of headstock finished in black with a 'widow-peak'. Individual single-line "no-name" Kluson Deluxe tuners (stamped on the underside "2356766 / Pat Appld.") with single-ring Keystone plastic buttons. Two very strong P-90 pickups with outputs of 7.56k and 7.70k. The neck pickup with a black plastic cover engraved on the underside "UC - 450-1 / 2" and the bridge pickup with a similar black plastic cover and a black plastic spacer. Five-layer (black/white/black/white/black) plastic pickguard secured by one screw on the side of the body and pin to the treble side of the fretboard. Four controls (two volume, two tone) plus three-way selector switch on upper treble bout. The potentiometers are stamped "134 623" (CTS, June 1956). Gold plastic 'Bell' shaped knobs. ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic non retainer bridge with metal saddles on Rosewood base. Original specific 'loop' tailpiece (with no engraving on the bar). All hardware gold plated. Inside the bass 'f' hole is the original Gibson oval orange label with Style "ES-350T written in black ink and the serial number "A 25493" stamped in black. Inside the treble 'f' hole, stamped in black, is the FON (factory order number) "V7606 3". There is a small amount of fret wear to the first twelve frets - but apart from that this super rare "Chuck Berry" guitar is as mint as the day it left the factory. Complete with its original Gibson tri-folding hang tag, stamped in blue "ES-350 T - N / A24593" . Housed in its original Gibson 'four-latch' brown hardshell case with pink plush lining. (9.25). By far the finest example of any ES-350 that we have ever seen!
