Refinished blondes are tricky because you can't use the tried and true 40% rule. Why not? Because it is possible (but not easy) to strip a red or sunburst 335 and refinish it in blonde. So, with a refinished (or oversprayed) blonde, you need to be able to prove it left the factory as a blonde and that it has always been a blonde. Then, the 40% rule makes sense. So, this blonde is documented in the Gibson shipping ledger as a blonde. The new finish is nitrocellulose lacquer and was done by 335 builder Ken McKay. The rest of the guitar is original including PAFs, proper short seam stop tail, no wire ABR-1, long guard, catalin switch tip-all the 59 features that early 60 335's retained (burst knobs, single ring tuners). The neck is quite slim but not as slim as a 61. I guess this 335 slots in for the player who wants to gig with a vintage blonde but doesn't want to worry about a $100,000 guitar (it's worry enough to gig any vintage guitar).
