For sale is a 2007 Gibson Custom Shop Roy Orbison Signature Es-335 #008 of 70 with the original case. The guitar is based on an early ’80s model ES-335 that played in his famous 1987 televised concert “,” and which he used extensively during his stint with “super group” the Travelling Wilburys.
According to Gibson’s website, Custom Shop engineers managed to get their hands on a pair of Orbison’s guitars from this period, and the resulting specs were used to develop the Roy Orbison ES-335. Unique features include a one-piece mahogany neck with vintage 1959 rounded profile, holly headstock veneer with vintage tulip tuners, and antiqued ebony-finished hardware.
This guitar is in very good condition and in perfect working order. There are some light scratches and a few very small dings. Overall, I would rate the condition a solid 8.5 out of 10. Everything on the guitar is original. There are no cracks, repairs, or issues. The neck is straight with no issues. The original frets are in excellent condition with no wear. There is no buzzing or dead spots. The original case has a bit of wear but works great. Unfortunately, we do not have the certificate.
