1970 Gibson ES-345 TDW

The ES-345 is an icon for the ages. It's hard to shake the image of Chuck Berry duck-walkin' across the stage with one slung over his shoulder. Semi-hollow with stereo output and varitone switch it can deftly handle rock, blues and any other genre you're brave enough to tackle. This vintage 1970 model has it really goin on with dual "patent sticker" humbuckers that get you that vintage tone you've had stuck in your head. The 345 is always a looker with its gold hardware, double parallelogram inlays, and walnut brown finish. Classic Gibson construction too: all maple body, set-in mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. As an early '70 is has a very small volute and the headstock transition.

Cosmetic Condition:

It remains in good condition, used but not abused. There are nicks and scratches throughout with some small paint chips and light weather checking. On the back there is some light "buckle rash." The fingerboard itself has worn down some from play. Some of the gold plating has been worn off the hardware.

Repairs & Mods:

The guitar is structurally solid with no cracks, breaks or repairs. One of the tone pots is missing its shield. 

Feel & Playability:

The neck has a great feeling medium to medium/chunky neck profile and is very straight. The frets are original and are typical of the era, wide and flat. They have been leveled in the recent past so they are free from grooves but still have good height on them. They won't need attention for a long while. This easy player might be your new "number one!"
