Item Details

For your consideration is this 1988 Gibson ES-335 Dot semi-hollowbody electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 81598537, is in excellent 100% all original condition and includes the original Brown exterior/Pink interior hard shell case! Produced by the Gibson Nashville factory prior to the existence of a Custom Shop or Historic division, this was the finest reissue style model Gibson offered, and was an extremely accurate vintage spec instrument. In fact, some enthusiasts still consider ES-335s made during the late-1980s to be some of the most faithful reproductions since the original. Take advantage of this reasonable Buy it Now/Best Offer listing, and get a fantastic guitar that is certain to become an investment that appreciates in value!

This '88 ES-335 Dot features: a maple top and back with stunning Tobacco Sunburst finish, maple sides, bound top and back, vintage style 1-piece mahogany neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, (1) Patent No. humbucking pickup and (1) HB-L humbucking pickup, Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece, Grover tuning machines, nickel hardware, and the original hard shell case.

This example is in excellent cosmetic shape, and perfect structural condition. A completely preserved no-issues example, there are no cracks, no breaks, no repairs, nor modifications. The finish is clean without evidence of pick or buckle wear, and there is only very minor neck wear, which is so small it is nearly impossible to photograph. The original nickel hardware has oxidized, the result being an attractive authentic-looking patina.

Weighing a moderate 8 lbs. 14 oz., the guitar is very enjoyable, and easy, to play. The neck profile is most reminiscent of a '60 slim taper shape, and the medium-sized vintage spec frets are in great condition. With factory installed 2 different models of pickups, HB-L and Pat. No., the guitar is quite versatile. The neck is perfectly straight, and was recently setup up with Pyramid .010-.046 gauge strings. The original case padlock has been compromised and the latch was removed at some point for easier access.

This is a great bargain buy, and an absolute timeless instrument. It looks, plays, and sounds great, and can be purchased for less than a new one made from lesser quality materials. Don't miss this chance to buy one before they go up in value.
