When you factor in the factory-original Varitone switch, you can dial in a nearly impossible number of tones, including that signature bite and snarl so many classic blues guitarists have used the ES-345 to achieve. If you're looking for a collector grade ES-345 to add to your Gibson collection, they really don't get better.
