Custom Shop ES335 born on the 24th July 2008 at the Nashville factory, which is the most sought-after production plant.
This guitar has already had some interesting history having been gigged around the UK, at some point refinished in Pelham Blue and now in a relic’d Deep Sparkle Cherry - an old ES335 option.
Fitted with '57 pickups, CTS pots and Russian Oil Capacitors, this has a nice sized early 60s neck - not too fat, not too thin.
It isn't a factory pristine finish and will continue to age and develop lacquer checks over the coming years.
However, this is one fantastic playing and sounding ES335. Buy it quick before I decide to keep it.
Comes with a heavily used but perfectly serviceable Gibson Custom Shop hard shell case.
