    Gibson ES-345TDW-0c48e18c-88b2-4723-91dc-c0fc60ee0ba7-jpgGibson ES-345TDW-bac2056d-415f-4978-91cb-f7b5bbb926d3-jpgGibson ES-345TDW-6b817889-fa11-45cc-a881-446c683c88d9-jpgGibson ES-345TDW-2e11e3b4-ee58-4211-9d3c-1829e6d4ebea-jpgGibson ES-345TDW-279bbb4d-b1cf-4790-a466-b2615eb72a20-jpgGibson ES-345TDW-fb1d88f2-3fe0-4113-bae8-5aaf6f4334c9-jpgOne owner, all original except for a tuner upgrade to Schallers about 35 years ago. Based on the volute, walnut finish and documentation provided from the original bill of sale, it’s a ‘71. Very good condition with no repairs, cracks, breaks or structural issues. The original Gibson pamphlet from the music store where it was purchased is included with the hand written serial number and the music store’s stamp. The frets are typical of the period, low and flat, and the action is set low and fast. Currently, I have it strung with Chrome 11’s. I haven’t removed the pickups but all indications point to it being loaded with T-Tops. The gold hardware has lots of player wear but the body is in great shape with only minor surface wear. Sports a 1 9/16 nut. Unfortunately the original case was traded with another guitar by accident years ago. May consider trades for the right archtop/ ES-175/ 330/ ES-150 or Heritage H-550/ 575/ Eagle Classic. I can provide more detailed pics of specific areas if requested. Asking $3500. Prefer local pickup in middle TN but may consider shipping depending on location.

    Oh man that brings back memories, my first "real" guitar was a '74 or '75 walnut 335 bought new in HS with my PT job money. $399 with the case.

    They’re great guitars. Mine sounds great...I just prefer a wider, chunkier neck. $399 in ‘75 was a nice bit of coin. Probably took some time to save up, especially as a part time worker in school.

    Thanks, Marty. It’s definitely a terrific guitar. The walnut is very appealing to me. If only I could get used to the thinner neck. I guess I’m just more comfortable with 1 11/16 and 1 3/4th widths.

    My first pro-grade guitar was a friends ES-345 TDSV w/Bigsby. I suppose it was kismet when I got my own, mid-sixties model n Cherry Red with gold hardware and stereo Varitone, and trapeze tailpiece. It was my #1 for many, many years. I will never part with it. Best of luck with the sale!

    The stereo Varitone is such a topic of contention. Not sure why. It’s the sonic sculpting feature of the 345. Yours sounds ace. I almost converted mine to a trapeze but didn’t wanna mess around with filling the Bigsby holes. I can understand why you'll keep yours!
