Excellent plus condition, this lovely cherry red ES-335 TDC will sing away to your hearts content. A replacement set of old nickel Grover tuners is the only mod on this exceptional, mid 60's ES, for sale at a reasonable price...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

Very nice, mid sixties Gibson ES-335 TDC in vibrant cherry red with the only modification being a nice old set of nickel plated, Grover tuners fitted in place of the original Klusons.

Early 1966 this one with wide bevel pickguard still in place and a very good condition set of reflector knobs. No breaks or repairs and no finish touch ups or overspray etc anywhere. All solder intact and a pair of very nice sounding PAT Number, sticker pickups fitted that rock - in a nice and bluesy sort of way.

A cool player on original frets and nut, both with hardly any wear at all. In fact the condition of the guitar overall can only be described as most excellent, there are a few, very minor dings here and there including a couple on the back of the neck but overall, it is an exceptional example for it’s age. Not in the near mint category, but still a strong ‘most excellent’ in our opinion.

Case is correct black with orange interior type and is in good condition with all latches working but does have a broken lid stay. It is the mid sixties plastic handle Gibson case that always breaks where the handle meets the metal clasp and this one is no exception with an improvised but strong, wire replacement handle fitted at the moment.

No issues with playability or sound and this one sings with a great action that makes it easy to manoeuvre all across, and up and down the fingerboard.

A very nice ES-335 in the best standard colour in the catalogue, at a reasonable price, in great condition ready to play right out the box. What more can a boy/girl ask for…?
