Up for grabs is this beautiful 335. It’s a 2007 Yamano tobacco sunburst Gibson ES 335 Dot with a real 60’s feel. These Yamano selected 335’s were very good generally and this one is truly breath-taking. It’s perhaps unsurprising that it was hand-selected by Yamano for export to Japan, which bears testimony to Yamano getting all the greatest Gibson’s throughout the period they imported to Japan. It has thick tigerish maple flame all over the top, back and sides, we have tried the catch it as best we can but I don’t think the pics even 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 June 7th 2007 at Gibson’s Nashville plant, USA. The binding is nice and tight with no cracking. Nothing bad has happened to it, there have been no breaks, repairs or mods. There are no massive paint chips or big ugly dings. There are some sparse scratches on the back and a small nick just above the top f-hole. Other than that it’s all just gentle playwear and some lovely subtle vintage ageing all over the plastics with the white binding starting to yellow. 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 nice and light at 3.6kg. It is complete with its original Gibson HSC still with black silk shroud. Case is functioning fine, latches dulled over the years. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story, this is a very nice 335.
