2013 Gibson Custom Shop 1963 ES-335 Block Reissue
For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 12013 Gibson Custom Shop 1963 ES-335 Block Reissue in ebony with a rosewood fingerboard.
We hand-selected this guitar from Gibson while on a factory tour to their Nashville location and sold it to its current owner from whom we bought it recently. Happily, it is in much the same condition as when we picked it out from a rack of these while in-house. There is a little belt buckle rash, a small ding on the back right near the binding, and the nut has been replaced. Otherwise in amazing shape!
Here are the original description and specs from Gibson's website:
The ES-335’s design and construction, revolutionary for its day, gave it a “best of both worlds” appeal that suited it to any imaginable genre of music, from jazz to rock, blues to country. The 1963 ES-335 Block Reissue accurately retains the original construction, with the solid maple center block for superb sustain and resistance to feedback, and arched laminated maple top, back, and sides for added hollowbody-like warmth. The glued-in quarter-sawn mahogany neck with long tenon has a one-piece rosewood fingerboard with a 12” radius and a width of 1 11/16” at the nut, along with classic 24 ¾” Gibson scale length. In addition to these details, the newly revamped 1963 ES-335 Block Reissue also benefits from elements of the Gibson Custom 20th Anniversary Specifications being introduced for 2013. These include double ring Kluson™ Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a period-correct Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, a more accurate body and fingerboard binding color, and period-correct Aniline dye for the neck of guitars finished in Faded Cherry. The result is a block-neck ES-335 that is more true to the original of 1963 in look, feel, and tone than ever before.
A period-correct hardware set that includes an ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge and lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece completes the ’63 specs, and adds to the 1963 ES-335 Block Reissue’s considerable sonic bite through a pair of Burstbucker humbucking pickups, which yield everything from rich vocal-like tones in the neck position, to impressive sting and grind in the bridge, to round, funky tones in between.
