Gibson Custom Shop Handbuilt ES-335 Limited Run with Factory Bigsby 2010 Tobacco Sunburst. Very Good Condition 8/10.
This particular guitar is an absolute gem, its been really well looked after and is in the more sought after flame maple top, back and sides with bigsby and carved “Custom Made” plaque just like they did in the ’50s and ’60s if a dealer ordered a Bigsby installed. If your looking for a 335 that stands out, this is the one.
Its a fantastic player and in Excellent condition with a couple of minor indentations as pictured. The top treble side horn underside and treble side of the back neck around the 13th fret have small indents as pictured and we also notice a minor chip to the finish just underneath the bigsby from a string change which has sadly removed some of the lacquer. The marks do not affect playability and more pictures can be provided upon request. Aside from these minor marks the guitar hasn’t seen much use and has been very well looked after in its time and is in excellent condition throughout.
The Gibson Custom shop spared no expense on woods for this creation – the Top, Sides and Back are all Flame Maple with a really nice almost 3 Dimensional profile in the classic tobacco sunburst finish. It is difficult to photograph how great the flame is on this! You won’t find much better. The back of this guitar is almost as good as the front!
All hardware is nickel, and there’s a factory fitted Bigsby tremolo Installed along with the “Custom Made” plaque. Neck length is 24 3/4 inches with a 1 11/16-inch nut width and features a 60s profile. The figured top 335 comes with Grover kidney-shaped tuners. All Gibson Memphis ES-335’s have the gorgeous ’57 Classic humbucking pickups, two volume pots, two tone pots, and a three-way pickup selector switch. The knobs have been changed to genuine Gibson reflector top hat knobs. The originals are no longer present.
The original Gibson hardcase with shroud is included along with the original custom shop certificate.
