2018 Gibson ES-335 Anchor Stud with Bigsby, Pelham Blue, New!

This is a brand new Gibson ES-335 Anchor Stud model in Aged Pelham Blue. This guitar was ordered back in December, and it finally arrived. This is probably the only lefty out there! The 335 in Pelham Blue has always been one of my favorite guitars. This one plays and sounds amazing – the bass/bottom end is punchy and clear on the neck pickup, and the neck pickup screams, just the way I like them! Has a nice weight of 8 ½ lbs thanks to the weight-relieved center block. I also had the Memphis shop separately make me a VOS “Custom Made” plaque which can cover the anchor studs for that true vintage look if you prefer(see pic).


The 2018 Gibson ES-335 “Anchor Stud” Bigsby is a classic rock ‘n roll guitar with a modern makeover. Originally, only available as a custom order, this ES-335 Anchor Stud Bigsby is loaded with classic features like a 1950’s body shape with mouse ear horns, hot hide glue neck joint, and vintage-style Kluson Double Ring Keystone tuners. Modern luxuries like a weight-relieved maple centerblock, bone nut, and our MTC Premiere wiring harness with MHS humbuckers complete the magic of this unique instrument. Available in Antique Pelham Blue, Antique Ebony, and Antique Vintage Sunburst.
