Very good condition Memphis 63 ES335 reissue from 2016, with case, certificate and checklist

Although the ES-335 kicked off with the "dot neck" in 1958, many players have always preferred the "block neck" version of the early '60s. The beautifully re-created 1963 ES-335TD includes the correct body shape with narrower horns and rolled fingerboard binding for a soft playing feel. Body: Correct '63 shape with narrower cutaway horns Fingerboard: Bound rosewood with block inlays Potentiometers: Matched 550k potentiometers Hot hide glue: Historic body and neck construction Truss rod: Tubeless Historic truss rod Pickups: MHS humbuckers Frets: Period-correct .100" x .045" fret wire Finish: VOS nitrocellulose lacquer
