Gibson ES-340TDN 70-72

In late 1968  Gibson introduced the ES-340 TD, these guitars were more expensive and very similar to the very popular es-335 models but instead featured a laminated maple neck, a master volume and mixer controls (the toggle switch has settings of pickups in-phase, pickups out-of-phase, and standby). These gibson guitars were made in various colors however most of them were made in walnut or natural finishes. An outstanding guitar which inspired many guitar players at the time because of its versatility The guitar used tow have two pots mounted on one shaft to provide pick up selection , this system provided a gradually changing amount of pick up mixing which standard toggle switches can't do. The wiring harnass has however been entirely redone using the original potmeters (with the exception of the stacked one), and now works as a standard ES-335, the 3-way switch is also newer. On request the guitar can be brought back in original condition. In 1973 the ES-335 over shadowed the ES-340, it was fitted with a coil tap that could recreate the same out of phase wiring as as the ES-340. The ES-340 was finally discontinued in 1973 . In excellent condition with some spectacular weather checking and light signs of use. The Bigsby is newer. Refretted so plays like new! Includes original hardshell case. Consignment sale.
