SOLD GIBSON MEMPHIS 2016 1963 ES-335TD

Although the ES-335 kicked off with the “dot neck” in 1958, many players have always preferred the “block neck” version of the early ’60s. The beautifully re-created 1963 ES-335TD includes the correct body shape with narrower horns and rolled fingerboard binding for a soft playing feel.
