Another Clapton-era Cherry ES-335, this one from 1963, factory Bigsby guitar, suitable for a stoptail conversion with the factory drilled holes under the “Custom Made” Plaque. Tremendous sounding guitar, as these Golden Era 335s are know to be, with neck PUP = 8.55K, Bridge PUP = 8.02K.
This guitar has been well played, and for good reason! Now has a really nice refret, so it’s ready for many years of musical ecstacy.
The cherry finish is strong and vibrant, and the wood grain is very attractive on this guitar, as seen on 335s from the 1963-1964 era(also see the righty 1964 ES-335TDC in the Sold Gallery).
Has Grover tuners installed, but original single-line, double-ring Klusons are in the case and in very nice condition.
This guitar was inspected and perfectly set-up by Scott Freilich of Top Shelf Music.
1958-1964 Gibson ES-335s: I love these guitars!
