This 1979 Gibson ES-335 is an excellent, rare example of a later period, Norlin era ES-335. While late '70s ES-335s are not particularly rare, the natural blonde & maple neck version certainly is, especially when in this condition.
The Maple body features a subtle figuring to the wood with white body binding and the typical semi-hollow 'F' hole design found on these models. The neck is a comfortable profile, with a rosewood board and traditional block inlay markers. The 'Gibsobn' script engraved tuners, Nashville bridge and all other hardware are original. The guitar is fitted with a pair of T Top humbuckers, along with a coil split switch on the upper horn that allows single coil tones in the bridge position.
This guitar is in exceptional condition, and is as close to mint or NOS as we are ever likely to describe a vintage instrument, with almost no signs that it has ever even been out of the case. The hardware and electronics are correct and fully functioning, with no repairs to speak of.
