The Gibson ES-320 was somewhat of an oddity in the Gibson catalog in the early 1970's. Introduced in 1971 as a budget thinline hollow body and lasting only 4 years, the ES-320 is almost unheard of in guitar circles these days, but holds some collectible cache as an oddball example of '70s guitar innovation. Based around the classic ES-335 shape, the ES-320 features two Melody Maker-like single coil pickups that give it a truly unique tone when compared to other Gibson hollow body models. The electronics pair with a full feeling, playable neck and singular style that results in a rare vintage instrument with plenty of charm.
This guitar is in very good condition with only the most minor signs of play wear and patina visible on the finish. The cherry sunburst finish is particularly vibrant and in great condition. The original single coil pickups are present and correct, with script 'Gibson' logo embossed covers only found in 1972. The pots and electronics are original and fully functional. The tuners, trapeze tailpiece and bridge are original and in great condition. This guitar also includes a non original hard case.
As with all vintage instruments, this 1972 Gibson ES-320 has been given a full service and appraisal by the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
