This is a treat – one of the last pieces from the now-closed Memphis plant, a Gibson ES345 1964 Reissue in Frost Blue with nickel plated hardware.

Gibson hit the mark squarely in 1958 with the introduction of the groundbreaking thinline semi-hollow concept, coupled with their new humbucking pickups. The ES-335 and upscale ES-355 were an immediate hit, and in 1959 the line was filled out with the mid-range ES-345, which also sported Split Parallelogram position markers and a six-position Varitone circuit, but not the Stereo outputs or extra binding of the ES-355. 

Here we’re looking at a brand new Gibson ES345 1964 Reissue in Frost Blue. The full name of this piece, from the Gibson Memphis shipping carton labels, is “Memphis 1964 ES-345 Frost Blue VOS NH1”, with the model designation “ES456416BFNH1”. Introduced in 2015 and discontinued in 2019 with the closure of the Memphis plant, It’s a very nice guitar, and the ‘Frost Blue’ finish is unusual and quite attractive. As it ages and wears with use, it will look great.

Gibson has, for the moment, a ‘Legacy’ page describing this model, though not in Frost Blue, and it can be found here.

Site pages change frequently, but the link works at the present time.

More From The Builder On The Gibson ES345 1964 Reissue:

“Classy ES-345 looks rendered with vintage-correct appointments, PAF-style MHS pickups, VariTone switching, and superb feel thanks to a rounded ’60s ‘C’ profile with rolled binding.”

This Gibson ES345 1964 Reissue is supplied with its original case and all of the case contents, plus the shipping carton from Gibson Memphis and packing materials.
