❌SOLD❌ 1976 Gibson ES-335 TD Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar, Black


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

Here’s a nice Gibson ES-335 TD thinline archtop electric guitar in black, from 1976 when a coil tap switch was standard equipment. This guitar was built in either Kalamazoo or Nashville; at this point Gibson was far into the move to Nashville but some production still took place in Kalamazoo. If it was built in Kalamazoo, it’s one of the last.

This guitar is in almost original condition – the original Gibson tuners have been replaced with Schaller models. The frets are original and are fairly low, which was common practice at the time, but they do not show a lot of string wear. There is one finish chip on the back of the neck near the 4th fret, but otherwise the neck finish does not show a lot of wear. On the body, the finish is checking (a natural cracking process) and there’s slight flaking on the back near the bass side waist. The original hardshell case is included.
