  • Sale
  • Regular price £4,500.00


1973 Gibson ES-335 TD, Cherry finish in good condition. Aside from a re-fret it's all original including the case. It has a great sounding pair of "Patent Number" humbucking pickups, a trapeze style tailpiece with ABR-1 bridge, great playing, mahogany neck, and "double-ring" Kluson tuners. 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 where the flaw in the finish was.

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 mm. Depth at 1st fret: 20.2 mm.  Depth at 12th fret: 24.6 mm. Serial:105399 . Weight: 7lbs 9oz. The pots date to 1973. 

The finish on the front pf the body is in excellent condition and the cherry is still very vibrant. The back of the body has a couple of patches of buckle rash and some scuffs to the lower edge. The frets are in great shape with plenty of life left in them and all hardware & electronics are in excellent working order. The back of the neck has a few very small dings but nothing major. The headstock has a few dings & scuffs, mainly around the top edge. 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.
