Serial number 70461. This guitar has been professionally refinished and the neck has had the requisite reset and refret. The tuners are replacement 1960s Grover gears.

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).
