1965 Gibson ES-335TD, 100% Original with OHSC, EXC!

This is a lefty 1965 Gibson ES-335, Sunburst(like the early 60s dark burst vs the the mid-60s ice tea burst), chrome hardware, Trapeze tailpiece, pat # pickups, reflector cap knobs, and the width at the nut is 1 & 9.25/16.

The guitar is in EXC condition with some mild checking. At some point, there was a right-handed pickguard installed, leaving 2 small holes(see pics), and the Orange Label is missing(as is not uncommon with ES guitars from the 60s). The impressed serial # on the back of the headstock is 519921.

Includes Original Hard Case with Marigold lining.

$14,000

2003 Gibson Brazilian Historic 1959 Les Paul, 100% Original, Lower Price!

Left Handed 2003 Brazilian Gibson Historic 1959/R9 Les Paul, 100% Original with OHSC, all tags, paperwork, COA. Near Mint condition with spectacular Cherry Sunburst flame top, and lightweight at around 8 1/4 lbs. The flame is lively and looks great from any angle – something you rarely see with newer R9s. And it plays and sounds as good as it looks!

This is my personal guitar and is the only non-vintage guitar in my collection. It is from the Golden Year for Gibson Brazilian R9 Les Pauls: 2003. I’ve owned dozens of beautiful Brazilian Les Pauls over the years, righty and lefty, but this is THE one; true collector condition/investment grade Brazilian R9 – the finest!

1964 Gibson ES-345TDC, Cherry Red, Extremely Rare Lefty!

This is a Left Handed 1964 Gibson ES-345TDC. I have only seen 4 other Left Handed Golden Era(pre-1965) ES-345s: 2 from 1960(I currently own one), 1961, and 1962(which I previously owned). I have not seen any from 1964 – this is probably the only left handed 1964 ES-345.

The original owner had his name inlayed into the original fretboard, which was replaced with an Ebony board at that time. Recently, the guitar was shipped to Lay’s Guitar Shop and the fretboard was replaced with a historically-correct Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard with Double Parallelogram inlays(receipt from Lay’s included in the case). The fingerboard binding and nut were also replaced at the same time. There are side dot markers on both sides, which is historically correct for a vintage left handed Gibson. Lay’s also did a refret and complete setup – the guitar feels and plays great. Dan Shinn does great work at Lay’s!

1964 Gibson ES-330TDC, EXC 100% Original Condition with OHSC!

This is a guitar I sold back in 2011, and it’s in the same EXC, original condition. I’ve only had 2 left handed Golden Era(pre-1965) ES-330s in over 30 years, the other being a 1960. And I’ve only seen one other lefty 1960-64 ES-330, and it was the dreaded single pickup model. So from my experience, the left handed Golden Era ES-330s are much rarer than the ES-335s.

This guitar retains the beautiful and vibrant Cherry Red finish, all nickel hardware, 1 11/16 nut width, tune-o-matic bridge, reflector cap knobs, original black case with Marigold interior. Nice and light weight: around 6 1/2 lbs.
