Thanks for posting those again. I’m getting very stoked!!! What are your thoughts on the VOS treatment? The body of your 345 looks like it’s pretty shiny, which is nice. I’ve seen some VOS bodies that look pretty matte.
It's not too bad...there's not that much on it, so it looks like a well-loved guitar...some people say you can polish it off, but I think it looks fine as it is. It works well with the aged hardware. I too was worried about the VOS thing, but maybe it just photographs weird sometimes. All the VOS guitars I've seen in shops looked pretty cool. 8) :)

I recently came down the ES fever myself and snagged this 2018 Memphis VOS anchor stud 335. I’m definitely digging it.
Amazing colour!!!

2018 is one of the last Memphis Greats! :-*

I've always had a thing for sunburst Gibson ES345s, and last week I managed to finally get one of my own.
Yes, Zhivago - you may never part with it, now 8) ... I still have mine 39 years later, with her original case. She was my 1st guitar, it was in 1980 :

Wow!

She is a beauty, and a left-hander to boot!

My little brother is left-handed, so I think he would love to get his hand on this one!! 8)
