Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 1967 Gibson ES-335 TD - 12 / 6 String! Honestly, this guitar has so much mojo it's almost hard to comprehend. It's a 12 string that's been converted to 6 string that would be just as happy to play as a 12 string again. That's up to you. As it is right now, this is one hell of a vintage 6 string. The tone is beyond fat sounding and serves as an exquisite Blues guitar. The neck is super comfortable and smooth, the action is set on the low side, bends are as easy as you've ever played before and the intonation is very good. The body is extremely resonant and you can feel it "breathing" while playing it ( by that I mean you can literally FEEL the resonance against your body when you're playing it ). This would make a terrific vintage go-to axe for anyone, especially the player or collector who might be interested in a 12 string restoration project. 

Item Details

This vintage Gibson ES-335-12 has obviously been converted to a 6 string. It was outfitted with an appropriate 6 saddle Tunomatic bridge and tailpiece but retains the original 12 string nut. A set of non original Gibson humbuckers have been installed along the way. The thinline maple body features a deep and warm Sunburst finish and nicely aged cream colored binding. The mahogany neck has a 60's slim profile and a Brazilian Rosewood fretboard with small block inlays. The longer headstock, coupled with the current 6 string set up, gives this guitar added sustain, resonance and fullness of tone. The guitar comes with it's original hard shell case.

Overall Condition

This 1967 ES-335 TD 12 ( 6 string ) is in very good condition. The body shows typical checking to the finish, mild buckle worming on the back and a few small finish dings throughout. None of the dings are major. There is a hole on the treble horn from where a strap button was installed at one point.

There has been a repair to the headstock on this guitar - behind the nut and an area towards the top of the headstock that started behind the D string tuners. The repairs are rock solid - the tuning stability is very good on this guitar, and is among some of the best finish work we have seen yet! We would definitely encourage this guitar to return to 12 string status if the owner so desires. You can tell the repairs were done a long time ago - the finish touch ups that accompanied the repairs have aged almost as much as the whole guitar indicating that this beauty has been playing great for awhile. No worries.

This vintage Gibson ES-335 TD 12 ( 6 string ) is simply a beautiful sounding and feeling guitar with tons of great tone to offer. Take advantage of this chance to own one of these at a great price while you still can.
