Here is a beautiful vintage 1996 natural figured Gibson ES-335 Dot. It was built in Gibson’s USA Nashville factory back in 1996. Build date October 22nd 1996. However we picked it up in Japan recently so it would have been a designated Yamano, just minus the documents. There some really stunning looking maple flame and grain visible on the top, sides and back of this beautiful 335. You can see why this ended up in Japan. 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 ’57 Classic humbuckers sound fantastic. Factory fitted grovers have taken on a nice patina and working fine. It is ageing beautifully,  very clean with no big knocks or dings and and a lovely uniform patina over all the metal hardware and some nitrocellulose checking beginning to creep. All natural too, it's never had a razorblade near it! 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 its original tan, pink-lined Gibson HSC still with shroud. Case is functioning fine, couple of nicks in the tolex, latches dulled over the years and combi lock working. A real old 90’s beauty.
