Product Description

Like stepping into a guitar shop in 1961 and picking up an ES-335 off of the wall. This is the Gibson Historic Reissue 1961 ES-335 in 60s Cherry over the laminate maple body. The guitar is built after a year of studying and scanning original examples of '60s ES-335s. The guitar features an Authentic Slim-Taper C neck profile, pearl dot inlays, vintage-replica parts and a set of unpotted Custom Bucker Alnico III pickups with paper-in-oil caps. and audio taper pots. This one has a Murphy Lab Heavy Aged treatment that adds relic wear all throughout the body - small nicks and scuffs in the paint replicating decades of gigs, though unlike the Ultra Heavy Aging package, this one doesn't show off any bare unpainted wood, it's noticeable but still hinting on the side of subtle!
