‘63 Custom Featured Limited Run
Although the ES-335 kicked off with the “dot neck” in 1958, many players have always preferred the
“block neck” version of the mid ‘60s. This beautifully re-created 1963 ES-335TDC Varitone Bigsby
includes the correct body shape with narrower horns, and a dark rosewood fingerboard with rolled
binding for a soft playing feel. Showcasing the rarest custom order options of the era like a factory installed Bigsby B-7 Tremolo with Custom Made plate, and a Mono Varitone, this one is sure to standout.
The MTC Premiere control assembly paired with MHS PAF-style Humbucking pickups ensures that this
one sounds as unique as it looks. Available in Sixties Cherry VOS finish.
