Gibson 2006 ES-335 Cherry Figured Slim-Taper Dot Neck Top w/ OHSC
Here we have a stunning 2006 Cherry Gibson ES 335 Dot with a really striking flame top. It has some amazing maple flame all over, quite unusual for a cherry red 335. We have tried the catch it as best we can but I don’t think the pics even do it justice. The bound Indian rosewood fingerboard is also one of the best we have seen in recent times. The grain so dense and tight it could almost be ebony. It plays superbly, very resonant unplugged and 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 July 27th 2006 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. The pickguard still has the clear protective film covering on. There is just very gentle playwear and some lovely subtle vintage ageing all over the plastics with the binding turning off white. 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. An excellent weight at 3.8kg. It is complete with its original Gibson HSC still with black silk shroud firmly attached. Case is functioning fine. This really is a superb Cherry 335! I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story.
