We present an all original and early 1962 Gibson ES-335 TD in its original Sunburst finish. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This historical piece is in near mint condition with minor fading spots and other cosmetic wear. Beautiful Figured laminated doublecutaway maplebody. No breaks or any repairs on this guitar. Even comes with its original hang tags and manual. This hollow body with Mickey Mouse ears comes with a rare pair of P.A.F “Patent Applied for” humbucking pickups. The pickups sound amazing and are well balanced. They are also untouched and totally factory stock.
The oval orange label clean and intact with handwritten ES-335TD letter. 1-piece mahogany neck with bound rosewood fretboard with dots inlays. The original frets are like new including the nut. The original Kluson singleline/doublering tuners works perfect and turns smoothly.
This ES-335 Gibson semi-hollow is rich in harmonic overtones, incredibly expressive, and an excellent reminds of why vintage Gibsons are so coveted. In particular, the high end is extremely articulate without ever sounding abrasive or harsh, which allows single note runs to sing out with beautiful cascading harmonic content. Notes attack with exceptional bloom and compression, which gives this 335 a balanced, robust voice. Just a perfect ES-335 that everybody wants.
Pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with its original black Gibson hardshell case with yellowing lining. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
