2011 Gibson ES-335 1963 Block Reissue Custom Shop Guitar

(A31042) Excellent near mint condition. Has a Nashville label. The 1963 ES-335 Block Reissue accurately retains the original construction, with the solid maple center block for superb sustain and resistance to feedback, and arched laminated maple top, back, and sides for added hollowbody-like warmth. The glued-in quarter-sawn mahogany neck with long tenon has a one-piece rosewood fingerboard with a 12 inch radius and a width of 1 11/16 inch at the nut, along with classic 24.75 inch Gibson scale length. A period-correct hardware set that includes an ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge and lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece completes the 1963 specs, and has considerable sonic bite through a pair of humbucking pickups, which yield everything from rich vocal-like tones in the neck position, to impressive sting and grind in the bridge, to round, funky tones in between. This guitar will do all the 335 stuff you want and deliver it in spades. Excellent playing and sounding guitar. Just set up by luthier Jerry Ray. Comes with the original Custom Shop hard shell case and the Certificate of Authenticity.
