Gibson is thrilled to introduce the ES-345 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar. Crafted with a maple centerblock and quarter-sawn Adirondack spruce bracing, players will be impressed by the ES-345's lightweight feel and expanded range of tonal capabilities. The ES-345 semi-hollowbody electric guitar is equipped with a variety of high-end appointments like Gibson's hand-wired control assembly with orange drop capacitors, new Calibrated T-Type humbucking pickups, Vintage Deluxe style tuners and lightweight aluminum ABR-1 bridge and stop bar tailpiece anchored with steel thumb-wheels and studs.

Thermally Engineered Maple Centerblock Provides Lightweight Versatility

At the heart of the ES-345's tone is its thermally engineered maple centerblock, which reduces weight while improving resonance and sustain. The centerblock, combined with the guitar's Adirondack spruce bracing, gives players a versatile range of tones from warm and woody to bright and crisp.

Split Parallelogram Fingerboard Inlays Add Exclusive Style

The ES-345 features Split Parallelogram fingerboard inlays exclusive to Gibson's ES series. The inlays, combined with the guitar's multi-ply body and fingerboard binding, give the ES-345 a stylish, upscale look that honors Gibson's storied history of craftsmanship.

High-End Appointments Deliver Premium Tone and Playability

From its hand-wired control assembly with orange drop capacitors to its Calibrated T-Type humbucking pickups, Vintage Deluxe tuners and ABR-1 bridge, the ES-345 is equipped with premium parts that provide exceptional tone, tuning stability and playability.

Rounded '50s Neck and Familiar Controls Keep Things Comfortable

With its rounded '50s-style mahogany neck and familiar control scheme featuring four knobs and a toggle switch, the ES-345 has a comfortable, familiar feel for players accustomed to classic Gibson electric guitars.
