USED Gibson ES-335 Left Handed Flame Top Cherry 1997 Electric w/OHSC

For our left-handed friends: We know you already know, but the "Electric Spanish" ES-335 was the first ever commercial thin-line guitar that quickly became a Gibson icon thanks to it's ability to succeed in jazz, rock and blues applications. From B.B King to Larry Carlton to Dave Grohl the power of dual humbucker pickups combined with the dynamic response of the semi-hollow body has become a tried and true formula for harmonic balance.

The one-piece Mahogany neck and Rosewood fretboard plays great and shows no fret wear to speak of. The only noticeable wear is on the side of the headstock (see photo), mostly likely from a guitar hanger. Other than that and normal burnishing of the plated hardware, the guitar is super clean. The case is in very good condition although the locking latch is a little wonky and sometimes pops open. But all the other latches are solid. Pots have a slight bit of scratch but have full usable sweep and work as intended.

Every guitar is professionally set up before shipping.
