Gibson 1959 ES-335 VOS Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar - Historic Burst

New Store Display Model 2016 Gibson 1958 ES-335 VOS Semi-Hollow in Historic Burst Finish

Excellent condition with a few light scratches.

Includes original Gibson hardshell case

Serial #: A09541. Made in USA.  


With the addition of neck binding, the 1959 model is considered by players to be the ES-335 in its most desirable form. This perfect recreation offers the same 3-ply body and design as its predecessor and features MHS humbuckers, a bound rosewood fretboard, an ABR-1 bridge with stopbar tailpiece and Kluson tuners. The finish has been given Gibson's VOS treatment, which translates into tastefully aged. It's like getting an instrument that's been carefully played and stored for years. The finish is thinner and has a certain patine, while the binding is yellowed just the right amount.
