The Eighties gave alot to the world: spandex, the Walkman, Atari, and this badass mothafucka right here! Straight outta '82, this is the classic ES-335 from the Tim Shaw-era of Dot style Gibsons produced in Kalamazoo. All of the classic, late 50s, ES-335 appointments are represented here. But the crown jewel of this guitar are the Tim Shaw "Patent Number" humbuckers. Sweet Lord! These things sound heavenly. But these amazing pickups aren't just lipstick on a pig. Everything aspect of this guitar is top-notch Gibson craftsmanship.

It has been outfitted with aftermarket bridge and tuners (the original tuners will be included) but no holes were drilled for either of these. This vintage stunner is in fantastic shape. Given its age it shows very light signs of love and use (see pics). The luthiers have give this baby a fret level and a spot-on setup so that it's ready for stage or studio right outta the case. It ships with the original case the next day.
