Gibson ES-345TD with Sideways Vibrola 1960 - 1964

Overview

The ES-345 was introduced shortly after the ES-335. The ES-345 differed from the 335 in its inclusion of a Vari-tone tone selector circuit, split-parallelogram inlays, stereo output, and gold hardware. While the ES-345 was original envisioned as an upgraded version of the ES-335, classic 335s are more desirable on the vintage market. The full catalog name for the ES-345 is the ES-345TD.

Body Style: Double cutaway semi-hollowbody

Years of Production: 1959 - 1983 (reissued since)

Design Elements: Two humbucker pickups, Vari-tone control (missing in pictured guitar), two volume and two tone knobs
