You are bidding on 1 (one) Gibson/ Epiphone Dot ES 335 w/ Original Hard Case. This guitar, Serial # U04113514 was manufactured in November 2004 at Gibson’s Unsung, Korea Factory. The Korean mfg. guitars are known to be superior in fit and finish. These came stock with Alnico PAF Humbuckers and Grover Tuners, so it’s ready to rock. No tuning issues, and the pickups are nice and hot. This guitar is a GREAT player, and very versatile.
Function:10 out of 10! Bare in mind, I bought this guitar to play live, so it had to function and play perfectly. The only reason I’m selling is I happened on another in a trade. Frets feel great, It has wound G 11′s on it and it’s easy to fret and bend. The Neck radius is a bit lower than some newer guitars, which makes it a little easier to bend on. All pots, switch and jack are perfect! No crackles or dropout of any kind. Truss rod still works. Tuners hold tune very well; They should! They’re Grovers! The pickups RULE! Hot, can go from BB King to Jimmy Page in a volume flick. Lowish action, but if you don’t like fat strings, it would play mirror flat; Fitting to even the most dainty hands…
Cosmetic: 9 out of 10! Please view pictures carefully, any and all blemishes are pictured below. No dings or dents of any kind, Minor surface scratches were belt buckle meets guitar, but no deep scrapes. It’s hard to see in pictures. It would buff out. Also, light oxidation on pickup screws and Adjustomatic Bridge. I do live in Alabama. It’s HUMID here. The only other thing, the previous owner glued an Epiphone “E” on the headstock. This does not effect anything, and actually looks cool. Case: There’s an “A/A” painted on the front, and a little lacquer or nail polish spilled on the bottom exterior of the case (Pictured). However, the case is very solid and interior padding is in great shape. All hinges, latches, etc. work great.
Here’s a video demo. I used this guitar to test several amps for other Ebay sales.
