    Gibson 1963 ES-335TD Electric Guitar (with Case) Product Description

    Gibson rocked the guitar world with the unveiling of its thinline, semi-acoustic ES-335 in 1958, but for many players the most iconic ES-335 appeared in 1963 when the model was first updated and became a true rock, blues, and jazz classic.

    The 1963 ES-335 TD faithfully follows the unique specifications of the breed, including the arched, laminated maple top and back with spruce braces, cedar rim liners, and a maple center block with period-correct "window." Its neck has an authentic '63 profile and its dark, hand-selected rosewood fingerboard is inlaid with the pearloid blocks that distinguish it in the evolution of the 335. A pair of Burstbucker pickups, made in the tradition of the hallowed PAF humbucker, ensure classic tone.

    Body and Neck

    The 1963 ES-335 TD features a body made from laminated maple with a solid, lightweight maple center block. Spruce braces and cedar rim liners complete the classic ingredients for plenty of warmth and resonance. The neck is carved from solid quarter-sawn mahogany to a period-correct '63 profile, with a hand-selected dark rosewood fingerboard, block position markers, and vintage-style binding.

    Pickups and Electronics

    The 1963 ES-335 TD is equipped with two of Gibson's finest reproductions of the original hallowed PAF humbuckers, a BurstBucker 1 in the neck position, and a slightly hotter BurstBucker 2 in the bridge. CTS potentiometers with "Black Beauty" tone caps ensure an authentically vintage signal path all the way to the output.


    Continuing the historic accuracy, Gibson uses single-line Kluson tuners with double-ring tulip buttons, an ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge, and a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece with old-style long-anchor studs -- all nickel-plated and gently aged in Gibson's VOS process. Period-correct '63 five-ply pickguard and truss-rod cover, with historically accurate binding sizes and colors, are the finishing touches on an evocative vintage recreation.
