  • Sale
  • Regular price £3,695.00


1971/72 Gibson ES-335 TD, Cherry finish in excellent condition. It's supplied in a period Epiphone hard case ( Blue lining) otherwise all original. I've listed this guitar as 71/72 because the date range on the serial number is pretty wide and the pot dates are covered in solder so the only way to narrow it down was to go by the embossed Gibson humbuckers which were only used 71 through 72.

 This guitar has been fully checked over & set up in our workshop and is an all-round excellent sounding and playing guitar. Set up with a low action allowing for very smooth movement around the fretboard. It has a big rich tone both plugged in and acoustically. Nut width: 40.3 mm. Depth at 1st fret: 19.25 mm. Serial:614162. (stamped 2nd)  Weight: 7lbs 11.5oz. The back of the headstock has the "Second" stamp, indicating the factory deemed it to have a finish flaw at the time. Given that this Guitar is nearly 50 years old, there's no way of knowing what Gibson deemed to be the flaw in the finish was due to natural ageing.

There is very little play wear on this guitar and the Cherry finish is still strong and vibrant with very little fading. The frets are in great shape and all hardware & electronics are in excellent working order. The binding has yellowed but is all intact. The back of the neck is very clean. The headstock is clean overall but does a few small dings around the edges. There are no breaks or repairs. Everything remains structurally sound. 

The ES335 is Semi-Hollow it has a Maple front back & sides, double cutaway arched Maple top with f-holes, layered Black pickguard, Trapeze tailpiece, Rosewood fretboard with block inlays, 2 covered pickups; 2 volume, 2 tone controls with 3 position switch. Black headstock faceplate with pearl crown logo & 3 per side Gibson Deluxe tuners.
