Cosmetic Condition: This ES-345 shows nice aging and play wear. Little finish checking exists, but there are various scuffs, nicks, and other dings. There is heavier wear on the back of the neck from play where the finish has worn down to the wood. -- A small filled hole is visible between the controls near the bottom portion of the f-hole. This is most likely from a mini-toggle switch installation.

Tech Notes: Currently, set up with 10-gauge strings, low action, and optimal neck relief. The wide and low frets show light play wear. -- The serial number dates from 1970 to 1972.
