The 90s were regarded by some, as the golden era of Gibson manufacturing. The attention to detail and build quality of guitars from this era is prevalent in this classy looking black ES-335. It's starting to show some nice natural signs of age, with it's white binding turning to a subtle cream finish and metal hardware all starting to matt in a graceful way. It's been well played but also very well looked after, with only a little buckle rash on the back to show it's advanced age.
This has classic 335 tone in spades, it rings like a bell and has bags of that wonderful mid range honk. It's truly one of the best 335's that we've encountered. Warm rick lows, soft and sweet high end are all part of this amazing guitar's natural character. The neck is slim but doesn't feel as skinny as some we've encountered. It's the sort of neck shape that just let's you switch off and become absorbed in the music.
It's absolutely stock, nothing has been changed and it comes with the original Gibson hard case. It's just been fret dressed and set up so plays like a dream. The action is low, without any dead spots or choking, it almost play's it's self.
