Most guitar aficionados aren't aware of just how rare this guitar is. Gibson didn't officially make red 335's until 1960 and they only made 21 of them. That makes a red 60 the rarest production 335 there is. They are 4 times as many blondes in 1960. Red 59's are rarer but those aren't production guitars-all were special orders. Stop tail red 60 335's have sold for close to $50K (I've sold 6 of the 21 so far). This one is all original and is a Bigsby only-no stop tail studs (making it even rarer as most had the studs with a Custom Made plate or pearl inserts). This guitar is 100% original. Sealed zebra PAFs. No wire ABR-1, original Bigsby, original tuners and tips (high E is slightly bent).
Original long guard, catalin switch tip, truss cover, black bonnet knobs. All solder is untouched. No issue 8.5+ condition watermelon red, rare as f* ES-335. Out of 21 red 1960 ES-335's, I'd bet there aren't more than two or three factory Bigsby's without the stop tail studs. These were the special orders. Neck profile is late 60 wide slim at .81" at the first fret and .90" at the 12th. Not as slim as a 61. Super clean case with a near perfect handle.
