1960 Gibson ES-345TD, rare "Argentine Gray" sunburst finish with factory side-arm vibrato
Gibson occasionally applied a variant sunburst finish to some of the thin-body models and called it "Argentine Gray," whose name dates back to the early 1930's where a Gibson sunburst finish with green, brown and gray-ish tones was applied to some small body Acoustic flat tops. I often see on-line vendors label their guitars "Argentine Gray" when in reality, most of the examples that I see are the regular but faded tobacco sunbursts.
The authentic ones also have sunburst applied to the sides, it's quite an elaborate and fabulous finish especially when it's on a clean vintage instrument.
I will be adding more photos of this instrument too.
