This guitar is in fantastic condition with its unfaded cherry finish. One Welsh owner from new who bought this in 1973 in Cardiff and took exceptional care of it, there are no real signs of wear. The finish has escaped blemishing and there are little signs of any real dings.
The neck is in great shape and there is plenty of life left in the original frets.
The hardware is in great condition There are no signs of wear to the chrome plating and overall it's in very good condition.
Electrically everything looks correct with a pair of unopened Patent Number pickups.
This is a well balanced instrument with a confident, rootsy acoustic tone. The neck is comfortable and familiar with easy access to the upper frets. The original PAT sticker humbucking pickups add that classic punch, bite and warmth.
The guitar comes with the hardshell case it was bought with which is not a Gibson one.
A stunning example of 70s 335, grab this one if you want to turn some heads…
