You are looking at a Gibson Limited Run ES-335 Anchor Stud Bigsby VOS Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar Antique Pelham Blue, serial number 12417734. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 3.9 oz.)

Back in the day, if you wanted to custom order an ES-335 with a Bigsby tailpiece, Gibson used to just take a standard production version and install the Bigsby right onto that. The result was the exposed anchor stud bushings of the stopbar tail, which just Gibson originally just ground down prior to adding the now-iconic "Custom Made" plate to cover the remnants of the anchor studs. Today, Gibson Memphis is honored to bring back this rare "anchor stud" incarnation of Gibson's legendary semi for 2018 with the Limited Release ES-335 Anchor Stud Bigsby VOS.

This special ES-335 exudes pure vintage elegance, from the historically-accurate '50s-style semi-hollow body sporting those "mouse ear" cutaways, its authentic old-school hot hide glue neck joint, a genuine bone nut, tastefully aged VOS'd vintage-style Kluson Keystone tuners & Bigsby tailpiece, and of course, ground-down anchor studs where the original stopbar tail used to sit. Don't worry though, the ES-335 Anchor Stud Bigsby doesn't just look the part, it produces that sought-after warmth and growl of those legendary Gibson pickups thanks to dual Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers and MTC Premiere hand-wired electronics featuring a traditional 4-knob control layout, matched 550k pots, and Orange Drop caps. Giving this 335 the true look of a vintage beauty, the ES-335 Anchor Stud Bigsby comes showcases cream bindings and comes dressed in a gracefully aged Antique finish. Rounding out this vintage-inspired package, a hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson Memphis are included with your purchase.
