Show Us Your Gear: #1 Guitars
1971/72 Gibson ES-335 Stereo TD
This guitar has been my #1 since 1980. It features a 3-piece mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard with block Mother of Pearl markers, original nut, Schaller tuners (non-original), original stock pickups converted to mono, maple top, back & sides with original finish, and stock 6-position Vari-tone switch. Originally it came with a tremolo bar, but it was removed for better playability when I acquired it. This guitar simply flies. It's an amazing sounding guitar that gets you where you need to be 99.9% of the time. Versatility, to say the last. It has a very fast neck, that's a tad on the small side for some, but since I have average-sized hands, this works like a charm.
