A sleek ES-335 with BurstBucker pickups, modified '59 neck for the classic shape but slightly thinner for all night playing comfort, Grover 'milk bottle' tuners all skillfully crafted in the USA. The Gibson ES-335 Figured in Wine Red with a 390 Neck has the F-Hole emblem engraved truss rod cover that symbolizes the iconic Gibson ES line that is now the hallmark of Gibson Memphis. The tuners are the Grover Milk Bottle Rotomatic which has a retro style but modern features with an 18:1 ration for improved tuning accuracy. The Redesigned neck dimensions has an added thickness to Peghead transition that provides greater strength and stability.

This ES-335 figured has a bone nut for smooth tuning and excellent durability. The binding is rounded off to comfortably fit the contours of the player's hand. Just like the 60's the fingerboard has block inlays and low frets that provide smooth playability and accurate intonation. Now the ES-335 is loaded with Burstbucker 1 and 2 pickups that are calibrated for each position for balanced output and brighter sound.

My guitar teacher bought a ES335TD in 1966 and I've wanted one ever since, it's just taken this long for the money and the right 335 to arrive. This model has the 390 neck and figured top (and back). The sound/tone is better than I remembered so much so that I bought to add to the collection but have decided to use it as a player. The workmanship and quality of every aspect this guitar is "top drawer". I put the pickup selector switch in the middle position turn all of the controls to 7 and I'm good to go for the whole night. This is truly a wonderful guitar!!!
Musical Background:
I've been playing guitar for 49 years, 45 of them professionally.
