Gibson ES-336 - 1996
This guitar was initially bought by its owner as a body and neck project and he supplied the rest of the parts to build it into a players guitar. Normally, these are a Gibson Custom Shop-made item. With its two-piece book-matched solid carved maple top and one piece routed mahogany body with a mahogany neck as well. The body is a scaled-down ES-335 style and it sounds great, not plugged in! Pickups are locally-made by Mr Fabulous Pickups and are based on Peter Green’s PAF pickups. Other features include straight-pull headstock and chrome-plated parts that make this one look the part as well. All in all, this is a good-feeling and very playable guitar and a bargain as the original Custom-Shop item sells for around the 3K mark. Comes with OHSC.
