Well, I almost had to sell the car to afford it, but I have been looking for a walnut ES for a while now. So when this all-original (except pick guard and strap buttons) 355 - the “Cadillac” of the ES line - came up at Folkway Music in Waterloo (1 hour west of Toronto) I could not resist it.
So I FINALLY have a vintage walnut ES! And the best part is…golden waffleback Klusons!
Now if you’ll excuse me I have a car to sell… ;)
