Description

The 1959 Dot ES335 is a classic known to vintage guitar fans everywhere. This historic reissue is a faithful recreation and offers players the chance to own a modern guitar in perfect condition that has the mojo of the past. This one has everyone's favorite, the Tobacco Sunburst on figured Maple with creamy bindings and keystone buttons. This particular guitar plays beautifully and sounds amazing. It's in near mint condition and ready for a new parnter.

My whole life the Tobacco Sunburst Gibson always appealed to me. So classic and cool looking. This guitar also has wonderful flame figure that shimmer's through the translucent burst. The neck is perfect and the setup makes this a fast player. The tone is all vintage Gibson thanks to the pair of '57 humbuckers, as Al said it's very versatile from B.B. to Clapton to Carlton, you can do it all on this one.
 
I love this guitar. I played an ES-335 for most of my early music career. It's such a versatile instrument. Great for rock, blues and jazz. This one has the orange label and appointments of the 1959 but with the addition of flamed maple top, sides and back. It plays and sounds great.
