Like the Les Paul, the ES-335 stands as one of Gibson’s all-time most iconic models. The ES-335 is a semi-hollowbody guitar which means that it has a solid block of wood running through its center with hollow wings on either side. This construction style maintains the open tone of a hollowbody while helping to reduce feedback. The ES-335 was introduced in 1958 and has remained in production in various forms ever since. The official model designation of the ES-335 is ES-335TD, with the TD standing for thinline, double pickups.
This guitar has the rare factory installed Bigsby tailpiece, it is very good condition showing typical finish checking. The frets have been replaced and strap locks were added but there are no other mods or repairs. Comes with the original Gibson Hardshell case!
