1958 GibsonES-335 – Sunburst

Check out this beautiful 1958 Gibson ES-335 in its original Sunburst finish! This first year ES-335 is not only a fantastic looking and sounding guitar, but this price is too good to pass up! This one has a great neck angle, unbound rosewood fretboard and its original long pickguard; all three things to check out when looking at these early first year examples. The two well balanced PAFs can put out some incredible tones, and certainly gives a Burst a run for its money. The reasoning for the great price is that at some point a Bigsby was added and removed, leaving a couple of extra holes by the strap button, and two holes on the top that are completely covered by the tailpiece. This is a tremendous opportunity to pick up a first year ES-335 at a great price!
