Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 1980 Gibson ES-335 TD! Just a few years past 30 and this axe is still swinging like the day it was born! This ES-335 TD boasts a terrific set up with a straight neck, low even action, stellar intonation and easy playability. The versatility of this guitar probably goes without being said but we'll do it anyway. You can legitimately play ANY style of music with this guitar. Blues, Rock, Jazz, Fusion are all right in this guitar's wheelhouse. Beyond that, this axe can crush Country, Experimental Folk Rock, even Heavy Metal to a degree. The neck on this 335 is quick, comfy and easy to work with. The tone is full in every regard and the electronic options give this particular guitar even more versatility than normal. Wow! This is a killer!

Item Details

This 1980 ES-335 TD is finished in Wine Red. The maple semi hollow body shows plenty of very attractive figuring in the grain. The binding work on the body and neck has faded a bit to a very nice looking cream color. This model has it's original coil split switch on the treble horn still active and in great working order. This enables you to run each humbucker in single coil mode to create even more interesting sounds. The fine tuning tailpiece enables the most precise setup you can get as well. The three piece neck has a nice rounded profile with somewhat broad shoulders and a rosewood fretboard with small block inlays. This ES-335 TD comes with its original hard shell case.

Overall Condition

This 1980 ES-335 TD is in excellent condition. This guitar is stamped second on the back of the headstock though we cannot tell you what could cause this designation. It's possible that this guitar was accidentally labeled and colored as a 335 but built to 345 specs, since 345's typically only come in sunburst. This guitar is in excellent condition. The body is very clean showing only some very light finish scratches on the back and not many at that. The frets are in excellent condition.

This is, in all regards, a very very nice ES-335 TD. The body and finish are very good and it is in excellent playing condition. At just over 30 years old, this would be a great vintage guitar to play every day or hold onto as a vintage investment. Excellent!
