Just in at Diablo Guitars is this stunning 1979 ES-335TD CRS. These guitars are from a limited run of only 300 and feature a coil tappable pickup selection and both mono and stereo output. 

This guitar is also very unique in that the maple top has a subtle birds eye that really ramps up and is incredibly 3 dimensional as you move the guitar around. It’s really something! The top is finished in a lush tobacco burst and oozed vibe. 

This 335 has all the classic features that make a 335 such incredible guitars to play. Maple top, sides and back, 3 piece maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard and gloss black headstock veneer with mother of pearl Gibson logo inlay. The stock Gibson Tar Back pickups sound fantastic and the guitar plays and feels as good as it looks with sonic options for days. 

Close inspection reveals the beginning of finish checking with one split in particular just below the lower F hole warranting a second look. This has been documented in the photos above and is ONLY in the finish itself NOT in the wood. The guitar has some very minimal signs of player wear but is overall in excellent condition. 

Our 335TD has been freshly set up with Dunlop .010-.46 strings in standard tuning with low fast action and a straight neck. The guitar ships in the Gibson hard shell case pictured above.
