We present an all original 1967 Gibson ES-335 TDC in its original Cherry finish with Factory Bigsby. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This guitar 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 body 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 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 black hat knobs, as well as the stock pickguard, switch tip and pickup covers.
All pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Come with its original case with black exterior and plush yellow/orange interior. The original latches are also intact with a newer handle.
