    2016 Excellent +++ condition

    Great playing and great sounding example of what Gibson is capable of producing. This is the VOS version. I believe these list for about $1100 more than the non VOS version of the ‘59. The '59 neck is awesome!

    Edit: It appears the truss rod cover has a small crack at the tip from someone over tightening the screw. If you look close, you can see it in picture 4 on Reverb. This Is only the cover, nothing else.

    Sold includes Paypal and Shipping to the ConUS
    May consider trades, but would need at least a grand coming my way.

    Here’s a link to Reverb with more pics: http://rvrb.io/2016-gibson-es-335-v84n96

    Below the pics are the specs from Gibson:

    Good question. Nothing in particular, but do have some specifics. Needs to be under 9 lbs and have a chunky to large neck profile. Not a Strat, I’m good there. I think in a perfect world i’d Like to try a Nash Tele with a humbucker in the neck and maybe a bigsby. Possibly a Nocaster.
    PRS, Gibson, Fender, I’m open.

    Hmmmnn. I'm an hour and a half away from you. If you didn't have to ship or PP, what would you consider?

    Hey poonman,

    Thanks for reaching out. Wow what a great guitar you have for sure. Unfortunately that’s part of the problem. I would need to receive more cash than I’m sure your willing to part with. Best of luck with your sale.

    Rob
