1970 Gibson ES335 ORANGE LABEL w/Bigsby EX condition
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2006-06-19)
Price : US $2,999
Here we have a vintage Gibson ES335, at a starting bid well below retail. These are now going for 5000.00 and higher. Our starting bid is just above half that. All original except for the Bigsby tailpiece, which by the way, works very well. Original tailpiece is in the original case. No breaks or cracks anywhere. Original Pickguard, pickups, tuners, bridge, nut, knobs, etc. Patent # sticker pickups sound GREAT. Neck is VERY straight, and it feels and plays GREAT. Neck angle is EXCELLENT, and neck/body joint is very tight. This cool vintage classic has new frets, BUT the original nut remains intact. They were done by Blom Guitar Restoration, (see website for pictures of his high quality work-blomguitars.com). It is an EXTREMELY nice fret job, with very uniforn and clean fret ends over the binding. The Cherry finish has checking all over.Lots of fine finish checking, but no finish is flaking off, except one small narrow place at the binding near the tailpiece. Finish on back is excellent with slight shirt-buttonscratches (very hard to even see), and so is finish on back of neck, with one small ding 2'' below headstock. Oddly enough, the knobs are one vol and 3 tone, although most of you know the controls are 2 vol and 2 tone. This guitar has apparently had only two owners, and I honestly believe this is a factory fluke. Headstock stamp says ''2nd'' for no apparent reason. You will not be dissapointed with this guitar. A very fine example of a well cared-for Kalamazoo crafted classic, with a starting bid near wholesale. Good luck, happy bidding.
