Gibson Custom Shop '61 ES-335 Joe Bonamassa Signature - EXC+ condition with light swirling and a minuscule chip near the tuning pegs. These limited ES-335s are rarely seen on the used market and highly sought-after as only 365 were produced.

The Bonamassa ES-335 has the standard maple/poplar/maple three-ply body, but like Joe’s original ’61, sports a center seam like the two-piece maple top on a Les Paul. Additionally, the Vintage Original Spec (VOS) sunburst finish on it was carefully matched to follow that of his original guitar. The neck is mahogany with a nicely streaked rosewood board and a neck that is .050″ smaller than Gibson’s current 1959 profile. The edges of the fretboard have a very nice rolled feel, and the binding throughout is aged cream. The headstock carries tulip-buttoned TonePros tuners, a holly veneer, and a nylon nut. The aged hardware includes an ABR-1 bridge, and Gibson’s deluxe lightweight aluminum stop bar. The volume and tone controls are from CTS, and the accompanying knobs are period-correct gold with silver-top knobs and a single gold “top hat” knob for the neck pickup’s tone control. Like most current production ES guitars, Joe’s features ’57 Classic humbuckers, but with the addition of aged covers. The Joe Bonamassa ES-335 is only available in sunburst and includes both a custom shop case and certificate of authenticity
