The new Gibson ES-345 Maestro Limited Release combines modern enhancements with the revolutionary features established by the debut of the ES-345 in 1958.
Classic appointments like celluloid Split Parallelogram inlays, engraved Maestro Vibrola, and multi-ply body binding take you back to the Gibson designs that have remained timeless.
The thermally engineered chambered maple centerblock and thermally engineered Adirondack spruce bracing create a lighter and more responsive instrument than ever before.
The newly designed Memphis Historic Spec II (MHS II) humbucking pickups are paired with Gibson's Memphis Tone Circuit Premiere (MTC Premiere) control assembly and the new Mono Varitone design.
