You are looking at a Gibson 2016 1959 ES-335TD Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar Natural, serial number A08069. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 15.0 oz.)

Born in 1958 during the Gibson's Golden Age, the ES-335 represented a truly innovative addition to the Gibson lineup. Blending traditional archtop styling with modern, solidbody construction, the ES-335 became an instant favorite. The ES-335 still remains the cornerstone of the Memphis lineup, and today, Gibson Memphis is excited to offer players all the tone and style of the original "dot neck" 335 in its second incarnation with the 2016 1959 ES-335TD.

Holding true to the original, the 2016 1959 ES-335TD sports a period-correct '59 shape featuring those legendary "Mickey Mouse ear" cutaways, a historically-accurate 1959 lightweight centerblock, quartered Adirondack spruce braces, and a vintage-correct hot hide glue body and neck construction. For a gracefully aged aesthetic, the 1959 ES-335TD boasts tan binding and comes dressed in your choice of Historic Burst or Natural VOS finishes. The Traditional "C"-shaped mahogany neck and bound dark rosewood fingerboard with vintage-accurate fret wire and classic dot inlays offer timeless Gibson comfort, playability, and style. The neck also comes equipped with a Historic tubeless truss rod for enhanced sustain and resonance.

Loaded up with a pair of MHS humbuckers and a classic 4-knob control layout featuring matched 550K pots and Bumblebee caps, the 2016 1959 ES-335TD dishes out those genuine, sought-after vintage PAF tones that made the originals legendary. Comes fitted with old-school-style VOS'd nickel hardware including a set of Kluson Single Ring Tulip Button tuning machines, a no wire ABR bridge, and a lightweight stopbar tailpiece. Comes complete with a period-correct hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson Memphis.
