Rare ES-350TD Natural with a Pointed Cutaway


1962 Gibson ES-350 TDN (Third Variant)


This very rare Natural ES-350TD weighs just 6.80 lbs. Single Florentine (pointed) cutaway with a one-piece flamed maple top, a two-piece birds-eye maple back and flamed maple sides. Three-piece curly maple neck with two mahogany center strips, a nut width of 1 11/16 inches, a short scale length of 23 1/2 inches and a very fast thin-to-medium profile. Brazilian rosewood fretboard with 22 jumbo frets and inlaid pearl split-parallelogram position markers. Black-faced headstock with inlaid pearl "Gibson" logo and pearl crown inlay. Two-layer black over white plastic 'bell-shaped' truss-rod cover with two screws. Back of headstock and neck heel with factory black 'Stingers'. Individual Kluson Deluxe 'single-line' tuners with single-ring Keystone plastic buttons (each one stamped on the underside "D-169400 / Patent No."). Serial number stamped in blind onto back of headstock. Two original 'narrow spaced' 'patent number' humbucking pickups with rectangular black labels on the underside "Patent No / 2,737,842" and balanced outputs of 7.71k and 7.78k.  Five-layer, black over white plastic pickguard. Four controls (two volume, two tone) plus three-way selector switch. Gold plastic bell-shaped control knobs with metal inserts. ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic retainer bridge with nylon saddles and reproduction "ES-350" tailpiece. All hardware gold-plated. Inside the treble 'f' hole is the oval Gibson orange label with Style "ES-350 TD-N" written in black ink and Serial No. stamped in black. The four potentiometers each have their original metal 'cans' with all original and untouched soldering. One of the tuning buttons "B" has shrunken but is still sound. At one time the previous owner had attached some sort of microphone harness to the bass edge of this guitar as evidenced by four tiny holes (two on the top and two on the back) which have been filled. These can of course be made invisible but we do not wish to try and hide anything from a potential buyer - and so taking this into account (with the reproduction tailpiece) we are offering this otherwise near mint and fine playing and sounding instrument at a substantially reduced price. Housed in the original Gibson black five-latch hardshell case with orange plush lining (8.75).
