Original vintage 1985 Gibson ES-335 Dot Reissue of the 1958 ES-335 model in Cherry Red.
The serial number on this guitar is 80295506 and it also has Made in USA stamped on the back of the neck. Cherry Red was a very famous color for Gibson which was much popularized by Eric Clapton on his 1964 ES-335. The guitars from Gibson during the 80s are well known for their tonal quality and remarkable workmanship. It was also during the period when they were competing with Fender's Smith Era of improved guitars, hence they drastically bumped up the quality of their instruments by reintroducing the Dot Reissue ES-335 models. This is a semi hollow, thinline electric guitar, and sounds fantastic due to the resonant sustains of the semi hollow body. This guitar has the genuine 1950s specifications with a large chunky neck at 1-11/16 inches at the neck. The frets are in great shape with NO deadspots anywhere along the neck and have not been played in a very long time. They are completely original as noted by the intact fret binding on the sides. They are not chunky neither too thin in size. Just comfortable for players that like the smooth touch. All hardware and electronics (ie tone pots and switches) on this baby are 100% original. The pickups are simply insane and they sustain well, making it an excellent guitar for blues, jazz and even rock.
