Description

A sweet piece of vintage finery! We’ve landed a gorgeous Gibson ES-335 from 1963 in cherry finish, nylon nut and saddles, and the chunkier neck profile desired by collectors and players alike. Additionally, the pickup configuration on this ES-335 is one of the rare PAF transition versions: the neck pickup is PAF, the bridge pickup patented.
Slinky setup, and weighing in just over eight pounds, this 335 is heaps of fun to play. We love the cherry finish; it’s got the marks to prove it’s been making lots of good music for decades, with the finish worn down on the neck for that smooth, smooth feel.

It’s such a joy to get an authentic vintage Gibson in that has been played in to the point where it feels like an old friend. The back of the neck finish is worn, there are dings and scratches, all put their honestly by a player who has been with the guitar for a long time. That makes this a special 1963 Gibson.
