2 P90 pickups. Original natural finish. All original parts.  Plays and sounds amazing.  
The guitar is in great condition for 1951 vintage.  Some wear and tear is visible (see pics).  The hardware under the pick guard has been repaired.  It looks like the metal broke and it is glued together and wrapped (see pics).  I haven't messed with it because it doesn't cause any problems.  The guitar strap peg on the top is missing (see pics).  There is some very slight separation of the tailpiece from the body that could be adjusted by a luthier if desired (see pics).  

Comes with the original hard shell case in good condition.  This is a hard one to part with.  I have a a fair amount of high end vintage guitars and this one is the one people seem to like the most to play.  We used it for solo work on several albums because the P-90s sound incredible.

They stopped making the ES-300 a year after production of this guitar.   I have used it on several albums (Society Down, Carey Mathews - Nothing Box, and Von Deckle on music platforms).

The ES-300 was one of Gibson's early high-end electric archtops. Originally introduced with a long-angled pickup, the ES-300 was given a P-90 after World War II. A cutaway version was introduced as the ES-350 in 1947 which eventually led to the ES-300 being dropped from in the line in 1952.
