Presenting a 1996 Gibson Custom Shop '59 Reissue ES-335 Dot in Cherry, accompanied by its original hard-shell case. This guitar has seen its fair share of play, lending it a unique character. It's in good condition and operates flawlessly.
You'll notice some light scratches, dings, and a touch of wear on the back, which are all part of its authentic charm. Overall, I'd rate its condition a solid 8.8 out of 10. What's remarkable is that everything on this guitar is original. No cracks, no repairs, and no hitches to be found. The neck is straight and a pleasure to play. The original frets are practically brand new, showing no signs of wear. And rest assured, there's no buzzing or dead spots here.
The original case has done its job well, still in very good condition and fully functional. It's worth noting that, since Gibson only began issuing certificates of authenticity in 1999, this guitar doesn't come with one. But its quality and originality more than speak for themselves.
For a closer look, check out the video provided. This guitar isn't just an instrument—it's a testament to Gibson's legacy.
This '59 Reissue ES-335 is a treasure for collectors and players alike. Act fast, because it's sure to find a new home soon.
