You are looking at a Gibson 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar, serial number 30340. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, .2 oz.)

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of one of the most iconic ES models ever produced Gibson started from scratch to recreate the 1963 ES-335 TD guitar that was used to create so much of the great rock, blues and jazz from the '60s on.

Gibson started by getting an original ’63 ES-335 in perfect condition and then digitized the shape. Once the shape was digitized Gibson then had a new press made so they could replicate arguably the most important feature of this guitar... the slender horns. These new accurate sides are glued to a lightweight maple centerblock with an original style “window” re-designed just for this guitar. Once the body is assembled Gibson is binding it with historically color correct binding they developed utilizing several vintage guitars for reference. Gibson also accurately reproduced the neck with its amazing comfortable shape with its small round heel and a perfect blend of the full size late 50’s and thin tapered 1961.

Adding to the accuracy of the 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD Gibson sought out and/or had correct hardware created just for this guitar. These exacting details start with Tone Pro double ring, double line Kluson tuners, a nylon nut and pearloid block inlays. An ABR bridge with nylon inserts, coupled with a lightweight stop bar tailpiece, held in place with historic style long studs and anchors take the extra step towards recreating vintage tone. As the hardware was labored over so were the electronics. The electronics were carefully recreated utilizing CTS potentiometers coupled with “Black Beauty” capacitors and Gibson Burst Bucker 1 and 2 pickups.   

The finish of the 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD was developed to perfectly replicate the look of an original. The cherry finish used on this guitar took months of developing and testing in order to achieve the perfect hand rubbed cherry that has hints of ruby, that is so reminiscent of the early to late '60s Gibson ES guitars. Likewise the sunburst is an exacting replication of the amazingly well preserved colors on the 1963 Gibson used to model the 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD guitar after. To complete the look and feel the hardware and finish are Vintage Original Specification and a historically correct Black case with yellow lining is included.
