1959 ES-335 TDN All Original natural blonde, EC

This is possibly the best vintage ES-335 we ever seen (and will see) A Gibson ES-335 TDN made in 1959 in truly amazing original condition, all original from the pickups and bridge down to the tuners except the tuner buttons have been changed as almost always. On first sight in looks almost new and unplayed, and it has been very well taken care of the past 58 years. The guitar also passed our blacklight test to check for a refinnish, only a small part (2x1cm) on the top left of the headstock overlay shows signs of a respray under blacklight. Features include a 1.75" Thin body, double cutaway, semi-hollow body with solid maple block down center, single white binding, unbound f-holes, natural finish, 2 original humbucking PAF (Patent Applied For) pickups, 2 volume and 2 tone knobs and a switch, tune-o-matic nickel plated bridge with no retaining wire, stop tailpiece, beautiful contrasting mahogany neck with brazilian rosewood fretboard (CITES included) laminated beveled-edge "long" pickguard that extends below the bridge, white plastic strap buttons, original single line Kluson tuners with newer double ring buttons. This is one of the best examples of a 1959 guitar we've had in our shop to date, a breathtaking piece of history. Still plays great and sounds like nothing else. Includes an original hardshell case.
