A real nice and unfaded '64 ES-335 TDC with factory Bigsby. It is not very often we get them like this...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

We don’t get them in like this very often. An excellent condition and unfaded 1964 Gibson ES-335 TDC with original factory Bigsby from arguably the best years for ES-335s.

This beautiful guitar is stunning and totally correct. We can’t find a thing out of place on the hardware, electrics or finish front. Both pickups are nice and strong, original PAT number sticker humbuckers from 1964 and all hardware is totally correct including the nickel ABR-1 with nylon saddles.

Worthy of note is the fact that this guitar came from the collection of Adrian Ingram, noted jazz guitarist and educator who knows a thing or two about vintage guitars and is fastidious about the instruments he collects.

Guitar is well setup and almost plays itself. Original frets are in excellent shape with lots of life left in them. You won’t be disappointed by the way this guitar plays, or sounds. The only real signs of play wear are on the back of the neck as you can see in the pictures.

All original, classic Gibson cherry finish is strong, vibrant and unfaded. In fact the lacquer has not yellowed over the headstock which is something that we almost never see. There are a few very small dings here and there but nothing of note. Included is the correct black case with yellow lining that is also in excellent shape, just like the guitar.

All in all, a beautiful example of a classic ES-335. We don’t see many in this condition so grab it before it gets away…
