We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


An absolutely fabulous "transition" ES-335TD, featuring the more desirable wider nut width. Superbly resonant with a muscular tone thanks to the pair of incredible sounding Pat No. humbuckers. This gorgeous guitar looks, plays, sounds & feels amazing! Even before plugging it in, it rings like a bell & sustains for days. This is a real winner folks & a definite keeper for any player or aficionado. Only the tuners & nut are unoriginal - all else is factory stock. Professionally inspected & set up by the experts at Cream City Music, so you're guaranteed to be getting the real deal!

Cosmetic Condition: Good honest play wear with an ultra cool, true vintage vibe - just the way we like it: various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & some mild finish blemishes/wear.
