This ES-350T was made in 1999 and it measures 17 inches across the lower bout. The fretboard is made of Indian rosewood, as is the bridge base. The body is made of laminated maple, a building style that helps reduce feedback. This particular ES-350T is in fine structural condition with only a few signs of play wear here and there. It was just refretted here at Gryphon so it plays as good as new. The previous owner removed the pickguard and now he can't find it so we're selling it as is. This guitar sounds great plugged in, and it works well for jazz, blues and even a bit of rock 'n' roll.
When Gibson introduced the ES-350T in 1955, the model had a short 23.5-inch scale length. The ultra-short scale was designed by Nashville studio guitarists Billy Byrd and Hank Garland, and it was also found on their namesake guitar, the Byrdland. While the 23.5-inch scale found some popularity among studio guitarists, and a few players like Chuck Berry, Danny Gatton and Ted Nugent, most players preferred the longer 24.9 or 25.5-inch scale and Gibson discontinued the original ES-350T in 1963. Over the years, though, they have offered limited runs of the model, most of which had the longer 25.5-inch scale, as this one does.
