1962 Gibson ES-335 Perfect PAFs Stoptail ABR1 OHSC

⭕ Mostly Original and Awesomely Playable 1962 Gibson ES-335 with perfect, unopened PAFs, Block Inlays, Factory Stoptail, ABR-1, Kluson Single Line Double Ring Tuners and Original Hard Shell Case in Very Good Condition.

This ES-335 has the sound that makes these instruments so desirable plus a factory stoptail and no sign of a Bigsby ever. The neck profile is not super thin and it has 2 PAFs with perfect stickers that have never been opened. No wonder this guitar has been played carefully but consistently throughout its life. The top is very clean but appears to have been oversprayed. The rest of the finish is original. The frets have been replaced in part which is why it plays so perfectly. The finish on the neck is worn from honest playwear but it feels great. The original tuners are included and in great shape however my uncle have installed reproductions to protect the originals and achieve state of the art tuning control. There are no extra holes or other nonsense. The repro tuners fit perfectly in the original holes. It comes with the original hard shell case also in very good condition.

This guitar has normal finish checking but no material buckle rash on the back. There is normal oxidation of the nickel parts, finish play wear on the neck and some wear on the fingerboard. There are no cracks or breaks and no repairs are needed. Please check out the pics as I have tried to capture the flaws that I noticed. With its fast neck and 1 11/16 nut the guitar plays and sounds awesome and would be a great addition to any collection.
