❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Stop Tailpiece Conversion Cherry, 1968

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Stop Tailpiece Conversion Cherry, 1968

Introduced in early 1958, the Gibson ES335 was an immediate hit with most players who had been using full bodied archtop guitars, because it addressed very real issues with increasing stage volumes. It was adopted by players in almost every genre, from country to jazz, R&B to rock. Originally equipped with a stop tailpiece and adjustable tune-o-matic or ABR bridge, in 1965 Gibson switched to a traditional simple trapeze tailpiece, and continued to do so until discontinuing the model in 1981. In the meantime, many guitarists removed the trapeze and had stop tailpieces installed on their ES335s.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Dot Neck Thinline Electric Sunburst, 1959

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES335 Dot Neck Thinline Electric Sunburst, 1959

This Gibson ES335 Dot Neck Thinline, built during 1959 features the now standard construction – Maple laminate top, back and sides, Maple center block, Mahogany neck and bound Rosewood fingerboard.   For these early models, the Rosewood used was sourced from Brazil – at the time, this was an extremely common wood and used on even low cost instruments.  This guitar was originally shipped with a Bigsby tailpiece; this was removed, put in the case, and replaced with a stop tailpiece.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES 335 Thinline Archtop Cherry 2012

The Gibson ES 335 changed many things when introduced in 1958, combining the feedback resistance and sustain of a solidbody with the ’rounder’ tone of an archtop. This has been one of Gibson’s most successful models, and is still in production. Here we’re looking at a Gibson ES 335 variant – the ES 335 DP, indicating that it has double pickups and a plain top.

The Gibson ESDP 335 was identical to other 335 models – the distinguishing characteristics are the use of dot position markers instead of blocks, and plain, un-figured Maple laminates for the body.   For hardware, there’s a set of Grover Roto-Matics at the head, a standard tune-0-matic and stop tailpiece set, and a pair of Classic 57 pickups with standard wiring.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-335TD Thinline Electric Guitar Walnut, 1975

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-335TD Thinline Electric Guitar Walnut, 1975

The Gibson ES-335TD was an immediate hit at its 1958 introduction as a thinline, two pickup, double cutaway archtop electric. It addressed many of the needs professional guitarists had dealing with ever-increasing stage volumes while retaining the classic archtop tone profile. Over the years, the specs have changed somewhat, but the model has remained in constant production and has been seen and heard on countless stages and studios.
