super-versatile axe – B.B. King axe

Musical Instrument Case Image

The original ES-345 debuted in 1959 in response to demand for an upgrade on the revolutionary new semi-hollowbody design of the ES-335, with Vari-tone electronics and double-parallelogram inlay. Some things never change. The demand for the ES-345 is still there. And so is the Gibson guitar ES-345 Reissue.
B.B. King’s original axe! 2 ’57 Classic humbuckers with 6-position Varitone switch, stereo and mono jacks, and all-maple semi-hollowbody let this Gibson classic electric guitar belt out the blues like nobody’s business. This super-versatile musical instrument holds its own on jazz, rockabilly, country, and even rock stages. Parallelogram pearloid inlays on the bound rosewood fretboard, multi-ply top binding, gold hardware, parallelogram fretboard inlays, and bound back provide sumptuous looks. Mahogany neck, tune-o-matic bridge, and stopbar tailpiece. Comes with Gibson deluxe hardshell case. The sweetest singing axe of the Memphis blues reborn!
