    I'm not sure it will help you identify yours, but these are in a '65 ES-345TDC.
    Good Luck.

  2. In Topic:ES-345 Tone(s) Question

    29 June 2017 - 04:55 AM

    Yes, the pickups are PAF.
    I had been moving towards two-channel Fenders and tried out '65 and '68 Deluxe Reissues. I was lining up a (non-Custom) Vibrolux when I got derailed by a broken wire on the Varitone.
    We mic everything in the small group I'm with now so I don't need anything huge either. In fact, I've decided to sell my Ampeg VT-22 for that reason (great amp, but 90 pounds).
    Thanks for the info.

    The 'True-Stereo Test' did indeed identify my tone issue, or the majority of it. Running stereo through two amps brought my highs much more closely to where I want them.
    I have no interest in having the guitar gutted/modded to a mono system, so I'll be further investigating the possibility of flipping a magnet.
    Thanks for your suggestion, which I probably should have tried by now anyway.
    I'd still be interested in what amps other vintage 345 owners use.

    I do have a 'true' stereo cable, though not the original which disappeared sometime in the 70's. I go between 10's and 11's on strings so nothing in the Billy Gibbons range. I have run the stereo cables through both channels in the Ampeg but not through two separate amps. This I'll try in the next couple of days. Will post.
    Thanks for the reply, btw.
