The 50th Anniversary Gibson 63 ES335, celebrating 50 years of one of the most iconic electric guitars from the Golden Age of Gibson Guitars.
This incredible semi-hollow body has been extensively reworked, it features historically correct slim horns at the cutaway, thinner period-correct body, hand selected lightweight woods including the mahogany neck and correct “window” center block, cedar rim lining, spruce back and top bracing, period correct wiring harness and “Black Beauty” capacitors. The neck profile has been painstakingly redone to match the original, it is fairly thin at the nut and tapers beautifully to a more chunky neck at the 12th fret, the neck heel is smaller and also vintage correct.
The 63 ES335 comes with long studs and inserts that transmit more vibration and soul between the neck and body, ABR-1 bridge and lightweight tailpiece, Burstbucker 1 and 2 pickups, Nylon saddles, tulip button single-line Kluson tuners, and a black with yellow lining case like the originals.
It's in excellent condition with some signs of use and shallow buckle rash, plays and sounds incredible, freshly crowned frets and setup with 10-46 NYXL's.
