Here is a beautiful vintage 1989 tobacco burst Gibson ES 335 Dot. It’s fully original just as it came out of Gibson’s USA Nashville factory back in 1989. Build date July 21st 1989. The condition is superb all over, the cleanest 1980’s 335 we have had in a very long time! Rest assured this ‘89 doesn’t have the stupid ‘prototype’ stamp on the headstock you see on a lot of these. There is some lovely subtle vintage ageing all over the plastics with the white binding turning off white and the metal hardware has light uniform ageing all over but retains a lot of it’s original shine. The nitrocellulose is beautiful and also retains a deep shine. Due to the age you can feel the resonant old growth wood as soon as you pick this up, it is super resonant. Neck is dead straight truss rod checked and functioning fine, plenty of life left in the frets, which still have their nibs. The original Bill Lawrence humbuckers sound fantastic. Factory fitted grovers have taken on a dull grey patina and working fine. There have obviously been no breaks or repairs. Plays and sounds great with a comfortable ’59 profile neck. Nicely balanced & weighs in at 4.1kg It is complete with some original docs and its original tan, pink-lined Gibson HSC still with shroud. Case is functioning fine, latches dulled over the years with combi lock working. A real old beauty.
