Gibson Memphis LE 1964 ES345 Varitone

An accurately shaped '64 body is complemented by the ES-345's upgraded binding. Split-parallelogram inlays are a classic hallmark of the Gibson Memphis LE 1964 ES345. Matched 550K potentiometers provide improved output and high frequency response from pickups. The neck is attached with hot hide glue, as are the quarter-sawn spruce Adirondack top braces. Our historic truss rod has no tube, a proven known to enhance the guitar's resonance and sustain! Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers are their most accurate PAF clones yet. Using fret wire of precise vintage specs delivers a warm tone with additional sustain, this retro custom color is applied in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer, gently aged in our VOS process

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
