1966 Gibson ES-335 TDC – Cherry
We present an all original and 100% complete 1966 Gibson ES-335 TDC in its original Cherry finish. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This Gibson ES-335 is excellent + condition with very few nicks, dings, finish checking and other cosmetic wear. No cracks, breaks or any repairs. The stock “Patent Number” sticker humbuckers are powerful and articulate. The semi-hollow maple body allows for the quick attack of this particular tone wood, and also an airy, warm quality.
Acoustically, the tone is very authoritative and clear, and this quality translates well to the pickups. The 1-piece mahogany neck has a profile which is unique to Gibson in that periode, beginning as a fairly slender C neck at the nut and quickly growing in both depth and shoulder to bigger neck. The bound rosewood fretboard features pearloid block inlays.
The original frets are great with a lot of life left. The headstock has minor nicks and dings and features the original Kluson Deluxe double line/double ring tuning machines. All of them turn smoothly and hold pitch as they should. The orange oval Gibson label has a clean text and a serial number which matches that imprinted serial number back of the headstock. The bridge is the original chrome Gibson Tune-o-Matic. Original knobs, as well as the stock pickguard, switch tip and pickup covers.
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 case with black exterior and plush yellow/orange interior. One latch is broken otherwise the other latches and the handle are in perfect working order.
