For all lefty Joe Bonamassa/Freddie King fans: here is one amazing lefty vintage Gibson 1973 ES-355TDSV, similar to Joe's 1972 ES-355, the one he got because Freddie King played a similar one!

This is one of the cleanest vintage guitars I've ever gotten in; it is a total freak and almost too clean to handle! Beautiful cherry red finish, strong unfaded cherry top with gorgeous grain, with the back amazingly figured and flamed!

Overall, in Near Mint Condition, 9.5/10, 100% original except for a replacement 3-ply black pickguard(the original tortoise 5-ply disintegrated, as they are known to do), no fret wear, even has the nibs intact, some tarnishing of the Gold hardware, spectacular condition with OHSC, unmolested time capsule/survivor guitar, true under-the-bed special, had people stopping in their tracks at the recent Orlando Guitar show, WOW! Has been completed inspected and set-up by Scott Freilich of Top Shelf Music(Buffalo NY).
