GIBSON ES 335 TD, 1967

sunburst. You already know that: Gibson's semi-solid guitars are my favourite guitars on earth.... and this one is breath-taking! The guitar is in great condition: it is totally original, with many original papers and tags, and it comes with its beautiful original hardshell case, black with yellow-plush lining. It's really difficult to find one in better shape. Shiny chrome hardware, ABR1 tune-o-matic bridge with nylon saddles, trapeze tailpiece,  Kluson Deluxe double-ring/double-line tuners,  strong and singing Patent-Number pickups, old-style knobs, orange oval label inside, block position markers, pearl pre-pantograph Gibson logo.  This sunburst finish is one of the best I have ever seen on guitars produced in the second half of the 60s. As I have already told, finish is in great shape: some checking, some light playing wear, a little more wear on the back of the neck and some nicks in the headstock veneer. Playability is perfect, and tone is fantastic. Well, I really can't find any flaw ... maybe too beautiful? More pictures here (please open them one at a time):
