Vintage 1959 Gibson ES 345 with original hard shell case,original stereo cable and owners pamphlets.Original PAF pickups, this old guitar screams and drips tone !
The ES-345 was first produced as an upscale version of ES-335. Although the design is very similar to the 335, the 345 featured a multi-position "Varitone" switch located just above the lead tone and volume controls, which added various combination to the electronic pickup circuit of guitar in order to alter its resonant frequency and add "color" to the sound. The ES-345 also featured stereo output jack, gold-plated hardware, large, parallelogram fingerboard inlays, and a thicker edge binding than that of the ES-335.Just a super clean local one owner score from Greg's guitars .The leader in cool,collectible and down right killer guitars ! Replaced tuner buttons as original buttons were deteriorated, The tuning keys ARE original, once had other tuners with 6 small holes almost completely hidden by original gold Klusons. it does have repro stoptail and posts as this guitar had a trapeze tailpiece which did not do the guitar justice ( 3 small holes on body ) .Guitar was factory drilled and post inserts original. More pictures always available.
