You are looking at a Gibson 2016 1963 ES-335TD Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar Sixties Cherry, serial number 70357. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 13.2 oz.)

Gibson Memphis brings the legendary authentic early '60s "block neck" tone, feel, and style into the hands of today's players with the 2016 1963 ES-335TD. It boasts an array of Historic features including a vintage-correct '63 body that sports narrower cutaway horns, a bound rosewood 'board that houses period-correct fret wire and block inlays instead of dots, a hot hide glue body and neck construction, a tubeless Historic truss rod, matched 550k pots, historically-accurate MHS humbuckers, and a VOS nitro lacquer finish in your choice of Historic Burst or Sixties Cherry.

The 2016 1963 ES-335TD is made from 3-ply maple top back and sides, and features a lightweight maple centerblock and quartered Adirondack spruce braces to deliver that authentic ES tone, resonance, and sustain. For that classic feel, playability, and aesthetic, the mahogany neck is shaped into a period-correct 1963 profile and carries a 12"-radius dark rosewood fingerboard that boasts period-correct celluloid block inlays and vintage-correct fret wire. Tan binding graces the top, back, and neck to give this vintage-inspired 335 an authentically aged look.

The electronics bring you closer than ever before to re-creating the sound of those coveted early '60s 335s. The 2016 1963 ES-335TD comes equipped with a pair of historically-accurate MHS humbuckers that employ alnico magnets and mismatched coils to deliver that timeless bite and growl that PAF pickups are known for. Adding to the vintage voice of this modern classic, the traditional control layout consists of a 3-way toggle and independent Volume & Tone controls featuring accurate matching 550k potentiometers.

The VOS'd nickel hardware includes a set of Kluson Double Ring Tulip Button tuners, a no wire ABR bridge, and a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, further enhancing the aged, old-school vibe. Comes complete with a period-correct hardshell case with a yellow interior and Certificate of Authenticity.
