Oozing early Clapton vibes this Cherry 335 is carved in the spirit of the 60s. With large block inlays and classic Gibson Semi hollow contours, this guitar could quite easily pass as custom shop or historic model.

The antique faded cherry is just the right colour for an ES and the satin/faded finish ensures that noticing gets sticky while being nitro it doesn't damped the natural resonance of the guitar the way a thick poly finish would.

The rounded neck shape is a lovely medium between a 50s and 60s neck and at 8.09 lbs, it's as light as a 335 could possibly be.

It's in excellent condition with hardly any signs of use, comes in original hard case with certificate.

The ABR-1 bridge is enhanced with titanium saddles for increased clarity, definition, and sustain.
