Offered for your consideration is this superb 2014 Gibson ES-335 based on the original 1959 guitar owned and played by session and touring musician Rusty Anderson.

This Memphis-built copy of Rusty's original '59 has: a bound, three-ply, semi-hollow body with internal center block with a total guitar weight of 8.2 pounds (8 pounds, 3.4 ounces); a 50's C-shaped Mahogany neck with center spline of Maple with depth measurements of .89" at the 1st fret and .99" at the 12th; a Plek'd dark Rosewood fretboard with 12" radius, medium frets and a 1.695" nylon nut; a light weight ABR-1 bridge/tailpiece; Gibson's Custom Bucker humbucking pickups with CTS pots, Bumblebee 500k taper caps, and Switchcraft toggle switch and jack; Kluson tuners; gold top-hat knobs with pointers; and a Vintage Natural nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

This is a great sounding and superb playing ES-335. It has the larger neck profile many players prefer and sports great sounding Custom Bucker pickups. The tone is fat, thick and woody whether played clean or driven. Check out the brief sound sample provided. This is a guitar that is great for most any kind of music.

Gibson gave this model a slightly darker natural finish and some very light aging of the body and hardware to give it the appearance of Rusty's own well-played, vintage '59. This example of this limited run and no longer produced model is in excellent condition showing only light evidence of play and the frets show little to no wear. It comes in it's original brown case with the certificate of authenticity.

If a top-shelf ES-335 is on your 'must have' list, there is no need to look any further. Make this beauty yours today!
