So, I've been toying with the idea of trading my 2014 1959 ES 335 and R9 in for a vintage 59 ES 345. I've never played one but I've heard they are really great guitars, especially the early ones with the black poker chip.

So, am I crazy? I know, before I pull the trigger I should actually play one but I feel like if I have one good PAF inspired guitar I'll be happy. The thing is that I'll probably miss the two I'll trade, but I think I'm ready to consolidate my collection into only vintage pieces.

You guys have any advice for me? How much do they go for? I know I won't get much of a break in the price if I do a trade, but any and all opinions are welcome. Thanks!

You think both of these guitar would equal at 59 345? From what I can find out online, as far ask asking prices, looks like they're around $14-15k.

I agree. You'd still be short about 8-9K. If that works for you, and you have the supplemental cash, I'd do it for sure.

I'd love to have a guitar like that from my birth year.


Hope the trade works out.

I don't think you'll get one with the PAF's still in it for that booty haul.
