A 1970 Gibson ES-345TD refinished in Red.

This is a player-grade guitar as it's had many changes and upgrades in its life. It has its original body with a refin that's somewhere between Sparkling Burgundy and faded Metallic Red. The neck is also original, but everything else was changed at some point. See Specs below for more details.

What's most important is that this guitar has excellent sound and playability. Our lead sales person, who is a killer guitar player, says it's his favorite electric in the whole shop. It's been inspected and set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech, so it's dialed in and ready to go. If you're a collector, this may not be the guitar for you, but if you're a player, you can snag a great playing ES-345TD with a 50+ year old body and neck along with thoughtful hardware and electronic replacements for a lot less dough than you'd pay for an all-original example. We're hoping this vintage road warrior finds a new home where it will be played and cherished for years to come.

If you're interested in purchasing this guitar, please give us a call and we'll be happy to provide a complete in-hand description and answer any questions you may have.
