⚌Reduced‼ Gibson ES-335TD CRS Country Rock Stereo Sunburst, 1979

⚌Reduced‼  Gibson ES-335TD CRS Country Rock Stereo Sunburst, 1979

Here we are treated to a real rarity! In 1979, the Gibson ES-335TD CRS – Country Rock Stereo – appeared in a limited run of 300 pieces. These were hot-rodded versions of the standard 335. A less elaborate version, the Country Rock Regular was also sold, with standard mono wiring and stop tailpiece. This example is in good condition with light fret and play wear, but a few marks to the back finish. It plays well, and the electronics setup offers a wide range of tonal options.

Gibson Satin 335 Dot Trans Ebony, 2006

Gibson Satin 335 Dot Trans Ebony, 2006

For 2006, the Memphis plant introduced the Gibson Satin 335, a somewhat stripped down version of the classic design. Most noticeably, the fingerboard was unbound and the finish is satin – sunburst, cherry or translucent black as seen here. Later versions seem to have restored the fingerboard binding. These models were discontinued with the Memphis plant itself in 2019.
