Every aspect of the original '59 ES-345 from the Mickey Mouse body shape to the hot-hide glue construction to the 1959 neck profile and solid center block are here to give you true vintage vibe. A pair of alnico magnet pickups and mono Varitone circuit let you dial in the perfect guitar tone. This premium guitar delivers the feel, looks, vibe, and sound you'd expect from a true vintage instrument. Get your hands on the Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-345 TD semi-hollowbody electric guitar and see what you've been missing. Gibson Memphis built the 1959 ES-345 TD semi-hollowbody electric guitar to vintage specs for an instrument that plays just like the original. The ES-345 TD's neck and body are built using hot-hide glue which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Memphis also uses a vintage-accurate truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor in the guitar's neck. Every piece of wood used in the ES-345 is hand selected by its looks and weight. Just like the original, these guitars are lightweight wonders to play. Legendary tone from alnico humbuckers Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-345 TD into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of MHS Alnico pickups, each with its own volume and tone controls, you'll be able to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock tones. The Alnico III neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the Alnico II bridge pickup, and you'll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean. Sweetwater guitarists have found that between the alnico pickups and the 6-way Varitone filter, you can create a wide range of tones that will work at any gig.
