This is the last year of the first generation DOT reissue es-335's equipped with the superb Shaw FAFs. The grain is super clear and t he finish has ambered beautifully. The hardware has a natural patina which looks like it stepped right out of 1958. You'd be hard pressed to find a better looking and playing semi-hollow.
No issues with this beauty. Weight is 8.7 pounds. Frets are in excellent shape with plenty of life ahead. Neck is medium and extremely comfortable.
It sounds incredible for blues, rock, jazz and has that intrinsic versatility that 335s are known for. Equipped with a sweet sounding set of Tim Shaw PAFs. Better than 9/10 condition and I'm being conservative. Controls work perfectly with no static or noise. Neck is straight and it plays perfectly with low, comfortable action.
No buzzing or fretting out. Truss rod adjusted, pick-ups balanced, intonation set. Extremely RARE brown Gibson "Cali Girl" reissue hardshell case with smooth exterior and pink interior in excellent condition included. Latches and handle work perfectly.
