Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 1974 Gibson ES-335! This is a righteous 335 that has is just begging to be played! The neck is an absolute joy to play as far as this writer is concerned. Not too skinny down at the bottom and doesn't taper out too big up top. It plays great in every position and will make a killer axe for any occasion. It's set up extremely well. The neck is straight, the action is low and it's very well intonated. The tone is round and full with plenty of bite when its pushed. The pickups are quite warm and roll off very nicely for more of a mellowed out jazz tone when that is in order. This 335 is an all-inclusive, expenses paid, one way ticket to vintage glory.

Overall Condition

This 1974 Gibson ES-335 is in excellent condition with the exception of one small top ding ( pea sized, bass side ), a few light finish scratches on the back from light play wear and one small finish scratch on the beck of the neck behind the 4th fret. The scratch in no way effects the playability of this guitar. The frets are original and have been leveled at one time. They have plenty of life to still give.

This is a wonderful player and collection piece ES-335. No issues. This is a keeper.
