Up for grabs is this beautiful Gibson Memphis 1963 ES-335 TDC VOS Reissue with Bigsby in Quilted Emerald Green Gloss finish. What s stunner this one is, we have never seen another quite like it. It was made for export to the Japanese market which is where we sourced it from a collector. This is a very rare reissue model from Gibson Memphis, few of these were ever made. Everything you could ever want from a bigsby-equipped 335. It is from 2018 and as you’d expect is in fine condition throughout. Beautiful spec with 3-ply maple/poplar/maple top, back and sides. Lovely dark rolled rosewood fingerboard with block inlays, blocks always look classy on 335s. Has the ‘Custom Made’ plaque on this model too which also looks pretty cool. It has the historic truss rod, hide glued mahogany neck. Period correct slim horns at the cutaway with Adirondack spruce bracing to take you closer to that vintage tone. The factory unpotted MHS humbuckers sound superb. It’s beautifully balanced & weighs in at 3.8kg. Never had any breaks or repairs. Super clean with no notable blemishes. It’s fully original with no modifications. Neck is dead straight truss rod checked and functioning fine, frets fine; it’s never been refretted so still has the fret-end binding. It is complete with its original Gibson HSC, Certificate of Authenticity booklet and assorted other case candy. Case is functioning fine and in excellent condition. Case and guitar even still have that sweet Gibson smell! I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story, this is a beautiful 335, these ’63 reissues don’t come up often and are no longer made by Gibson since Memphis closed down.
