We’ve had the luck of adding this “work of art” to our catalogue, with only 250 built in the world. Gibson’s Custom Shop has reproduced a 1959 ES-335 with identical specs as the original, to celebrate its 50th Anniversary. The results are amazing. Very warm sound perfect for blues and jazz, thanks to its ’57 Classic humbuckers (a good substitute for the long gone PAFs), though they also offer a good response for funk using the bridge pickup. VOS finish really makes you think fifty years have indeed gone by, specially if you take a close look at the hardware, and all the body finish is covered in a sort of patina that dulls out the glossy shine a little bit, making it look aged, but with a fantastic feel. The rounded ’59 neck makes pure bluesmen really feel this guitar!
In an exceptional, mint condition, includes OHSC, Certificate of Authenticity and accessories/case candy.
