In on trade and in great shape. This Gibson ES-345 is a VOS so it was lightly aged at the factory. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case and certificate of authenticity. This guitar has seen very little playing time since it's original purchase in 2015.
From the historically correct body shape, truss rod, solid center block, and bracing to the 1964 neck profile and hot-hide glue construction, the 1964 ES-345 TD offers vintage perfection. You can dial in killer guitar tones thanks to the alnico magnet pickups and mono Varitone circuit. This premium guitar delivers the feel, looks, vibe, and sound you'd expect from a true vintage instrument.
A pair of MHS humbuckers are tied to classic Gibson controls but the addition of a Varitone Switch allows for a new level of versatility. From bulging with bass to almost a telephonic thinness, this little switch makes a typical Gibson for more useful across the tonal spectrum. The MHS are truly impressive. Perhaps the most open and bright Gibson Humbucker we have heard, maybe ever! If you like to play clean, these pickups are amazing. Borrowing a bit from the Boutique Pickup winder's who make their pickups have this top end airiness as opposed to that congested or nasally humbucker thang. Bottom line: these pickups are killer!
