Description

An original Pelham Blue es-335. How cool is that? All original electronics. No Breaks. Potentiometer code on all pots match. Code reads 41st week of 1966. Original black beauty caps, and original patent sticker pickups. 2 of the screws holding tuners have been replaced, as with pickguard chrome bracket. This one toured and played all over the USA. The original case lining stuck to the side of the neck during a hot summer 15 years ago.  To ensure solid neck joint after exposure to heat some glue was injected in the neck pocket. By the way the little sanding in the neck pickup area that was necessary for this operation clearly shows it never had any other paint than pelham blue. No sunburst, no cherry anywhere. It's a beautiful colour that has faded a bit, hard to picture but hopefully you can see it has faded and turned to green in some areas. Look around the switch tip for or on the side of the F holes for instance. The neck has some impressions that have been touched up on the side where the lining was stuck but the original colour wasn't messed. While the Pelham blue is definitely original we believe it received an overspray. We think a clear coat was overspayed on top of it to protect it. The headstock and the neck have never been cracked or repaired. Pickups show 7.6k bridge, 7.8k neck. Original bridge and tailpiece. Original Tuners. Guitar comes in a Norms rare guitar case shown in pictures. If any additional pictures are needed feel free to ask. Thanks!
