ES-335 Historic 59 Reissue VOS Vintage Burst #A99556
2009 Gibson ES-335 59 Historic Reissue in a very tasteful VOS Vintage Sunburst. A very nice example in good condition with a few marks and a couple of dings, the worst being by the jack socket, but nothing serious. The pickups have been swapped out for the highly regarded Sunbear Handwound 59SB PAF set with an 8.3k Alnico IV at the bridge and 7.2k Alnico III in the neck position. They sound fabulous, far more clarity and 'vintage' correct tone than the Burstbuckers it came with. Also fitted with Tone-pro's bridge and tailpiece with the original tailpiece in the case. Rounded '59 neck profile and Vintage style tulip tuners along with the other usual vintage correct appointments, Bumble Bee caps, CTS pots etc. This is a particularly nice sounding example no doubt helped by the pickup upgrade. Its a great weight too at 8lb 2oz. With original Case and Cert.

This 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue is true to the original’s ’59 specs in almost every detail. Its one-piece, 24-¾ inch scale length mahogany neck features a long tenon, a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays and a rounded ’59 neck profile. In addition to its period-correct look, the 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue recreates the legendary tone of the original model by utilizing a pair of Gibson’s renowned Burstbucker #1 and #2 humbucking pickups, which is the closest thing to original “PAF” pickups on the market today. High-quality CTS volume and tone potentiometers with “bumble bee” capacitors offer a fundamental electronics package, thus insuring the guitar’s unique tone is captured and delivered with the utmost accuracy and originality.
Other traditional appointments include vintage tulip tuners, a holly headstock veneer and all nickel hardware, including an ABR-1 bridge and lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece.
