Gibson ES-335 – Olive Drab Aged VOS

$ 4900.00

Ok, my friends! This is one of those “screaming white unicorn” deals. 

These beauties street price for $6199.00, and they are everything that they are bragged about. 

These limited edition CME exclusives are far beyond any other ES-335 that I have played. The pickups (Oh man! those pickups!) are absolutely stellar! CME really went all out in designing these with Gibson. These exclusives are Gibson CS at its finest!

So not only is this price a killer deal…..

BUT….

I am throwing in a top of the line Reunion Blues gig bag (I don’t like the weight of the hard cases and I like to preserve them. 

Also…..

I am throwing in a Beautiful and VERY comfortable top shelf $130 Moody Leather Strap & Strap Locks!

  • everything is in pristine condition! The only things I could find, barely worth noting are pictured (I want to be completely transparent). 
  • The case has one small scuff that I can see to note
  • The guitar has a very small indent and tiny scratch on the side (REALLY hard to see and photograph). Not through the finish or anything like that.
