Here is a beautiful 22-year old holy grail era Yamano Japan ES 335 Dot. It’s fully original just as it came out of Gibson’s Nashville factory back in 2000 and is in lovely condition for such an old Gibson. Build date is May 17th 2000. Although built in the USA like all Gibson guitars, this one was especially selected for export to Japan by Yamano, who it is said secured many of the greatest tops of the 90’s & 2000’s. It was purchased directly from Japan by GSG recently and is complete with Japanese Yamano booklet and Ikebe sales card. Rest assured this is a genuine Yamano. It has a beautiful subtly figured Cherry flametop. It’s ageing very well and becoming a real vintage looker. Factory fitted grovers have taken on a dull grey patina and are working fine, stays in tune for days. The neck and body binding has turned a really nice off white almost yellow now. Neck is dead straight truss rod checked and functioning fine, plenty of life left in the frets, never re-fretted so fret ends still have their binding. No big nasty dings and nothing bad has ever happened to it. No bucklerash on the back. Just general playwear, but all very minor with nothing notable. The original humbuckers sound fantastic. There have been no modifications, breaks or repairs. Plays and sounds great, super resonant unplugged with a great action.  Has a comfortable ‘59 profile neck. Nicely balanced & weighs in at 3.9kg on our postal scales. It is complete with its original tan, pink-lined Gibson HSC with silk shroud. Case is functioning fine, latches working fine & combi lock working fine. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story. A wonderful old ES 335 dot.

We carefully hand-select all our guitars and refuse a lot more than we accept, if they don’t blow us away on all fronts, we just don’t put them in our shop; if it’s for sale by Gas Station Guitars, you know it’d gonna be pretty special.  All pictures are of actual guitar, we do not use stock photos. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship to the E.U, Europe, U.S, Canada, Australia, NZ and of course the UK.
