Here we have a very nice old 90’s Gibson 335. It’s a beautiful vintage 1998 tobacco sunburst Gibson ES 335 Dot with a real 60’s feel. The late 80’s early 90’s were very good years for 335’s and this one is truly breathtaking. It has thick maple flame all over the top and back, we have tried the catch it as best we can but I don’t think the pics do it justice. It plays superbly, beautifully balanced yet feels very solid and is in full original condition. It has a thinner 60’s profile neck which feels very comfortable, fast and smooth to play. Build date is September 29th, 1998 at Gibson’s Nashville plant, USA. The condition is very nice all over. It’s been well looked after. The binding is nice and tight with no cracking. There are no paint chips and no buckle rash on the back. No notable big blemishes or dings anywhere. Just very gentle playwear and some lovely subtle vintage ageing all over the plastics with the binding turning off white. It has a beautiful VOS finish. Neck is dead straight truss rod checked and functioning fine, plenty of life left in the frets, which still have their nibs. Original pickups sound very articulate. Weighs in at a nice light 3.8kg. It is complete with its original tan, pink-lined Gibson HSC still with shroud. Case is functioning fine, latches dulled over the years. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story, this is a beautiful 335.
