    I believe it is. Must have been a case guess for many years. I could not see any over stray. Looks original to me.

    Walter, these things sometimes sell for crazy prices. It was on my list for awhile as well. But this one was sold at a reasonable price or I would not have been able to afford one. I think I scored on this guitar. Pretty happy so far.

    I may end up putting a Bigsby on it one day (like Paul Pigat has on his natural one), but will keep it like this while I bond with it.

    Obviously photographs well when polished up though.

    Yes, ES-350T thinline had a short 23.5 scale (like the Byrdland) and replaced the ES-350 in 1956. I never had the chance to play one and the vintage ones also go for crazy prices most times.
