{"id":4794299613262,"title":"Early 1970s Gibson ES-335 Vintage Electric Archtop Guitar - Cherry","handle":"early-1970s-gibson-es-335-vintage-electric-archtop-guitar-cherry","description":"\u003cp\u003eOn offer is a Gibson ES-335, a beautiful USA-made semi hollow body electric guitar from the early 1970s, featuring the iconic Cherry finish. The guitar is in great condition when you consider it is in its late '40s. Check out the photos, we have taken care to try to clearly photograph the finish checking, hardware corrosion and dings\/marks\/scratches.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe ES 335 is a landmark guitar for Gibson Brands, Inc., (formerly Gibson Guitar Corporation) introduced in 1958 as the Gibson ES 335T. ES stands for “Electric Spanish” the “T” after 335 designates a thinline body (1.5\/8”), as opposed to previous ES models like the ES 175, ES 295 and other archtops like the Byrdland, L5, Super 400, Switchmaster that featured the deeper body depth (1.7\/8”).\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThere has been an exceptionally neat conversion from the standard trapeze to a stop tailpiece. Also, the original knobs have been changed to the Gibson black ”Silver Top” style. It has been re-fretted with wider frets along its journey, which may warrant a fret dress depending on the new owner’s taste and\/or preferences.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis guitar has a volute, a \"Made In USA\" impression on the back of the headstock and a serial number in the 900,000s, so safe to say it is an early 1970s - 1973 at the very latest.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSet up by our crew here at DMS with D'Addario EXL110 10-46 gauge strings and playing like a dream, but we will be happy to restring with the new owner’s choice of gauge and set up to requirements.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eAgain, please view the photos carefully during consideration, and if you require more shots, simply contact us and we will be happy to

Check out the photos, we have taken care to try to clearly photograph the finish checking, hardware corrosion and dings/marks/scratches.

The ES 335 is a landmark guitar for Gibson Brands, Inc., (formerly Gibson Guitar Corporation) introduced in 1958 as the Gibson ES 335T. ES stands for “Electric Spanish” the “T” after 335 designates a thinline body (1.5/8”), as opposed to previous ES models like the ES 175, ES 295 and other archtops like the Byrdland, L5, Super 400, Switchmaster that featured the deeper body depth (1.7/8”).

There has been an exceptionally neat conversion from the standard trapeze to a stop tailpiece. Also, the original knobs have been changed to the Gibson black ”Silver Top” style. It has been re-fretted with wider frets along its journey, which may warrant a fret dress depending on the new owner’s taste and/or preferences.

This guitar has a volute, a "Made In USA" impression on the back of the headstock and a serial number in the 900,000s, so safe to say it is an early 1970s - 1973 at the very latest.

Set up by our crew here at DMS with D'Addario EXL110 10-46 gauge strings and playing like a dream, but we will be happy to restring with the new owner’s choice of gauge and set up to requirements.

Again, please view the photos carefully during consideration, and if you require more shots, simply contact us and we will be happy to provide additional photos.
