Fantastic play sounding Gibson Custom Shop Block 335. It has a few light scuffs that will micro buff out, plus a couple of small indentations. A 3 cm x 1 cm clear lacquer loss from leaning against an amp on the back of the neck around the fourth fret position. A dab of clear lacquer or nail polish (like the old days 🙂  would stop your thumb from looking for it.

It is the full custom shop version … Made in Nashville rather than the cheaper Memphis version!

Gibson Custom Shop 1963 ES 355 Block Faded Cherry Serial number A33048 made 2010

The Gibson Custom Shop 1963 ES 335 Block recaptures all we fell in love with the first time round!. 1963 saw Gibson’s extremely popular thin-line semi-hollow guitar feature a thinner, much faster neck profile, which gave quick players tons of speed and response yet still offer articulation and clarity. Matched with its gorgeous pearloid block inlays the rosewood fretboard was just another beautiful element in a stunningly attractive guitar! This reissue Gibson 1963 ES-335 guitar has been built upon all of the original forms by some of the world’s finest luthiers, making sure you’re getting the truest, most authentic guitar you can get!
