The ES-345TD was electrically identical to the ES-355TDSV, and despite being a very highly appointed guitar, it was still less ornate than it's higher-end sibling. True it had gold hardware, fancy (split parallelogram) position marker inlays, varitone and stereo wiring, but it lacked the bound f-holes, the split diamond headstock inlay, and the lyre tailpiece. It had a rosewood as opposed to ebony fretboard, crown headstock inlay and a stop tailpiece.
1970 US zone 1 price of the Gibson ES345TD was $595.
This versatile instrument offers six pre-set tonalities with Gibson Vari-Tone control and exciting stereophonic tone separation. Play the ES-345TD through a stereo amplifier, two-channel amplifier or two separate amplifiers. Special stereo wiring and "Y" cable provide tone separation
