I bought an es 335 1965.
The guitar 100 % original nickel parts wide neck like the early 1965 guitars
So the guitar is wonderful but the orange label was torn long time ago (I don't understand why ...?)
I'm looking for an original vintage label union made.
Can anyone help me ??

I never knew 335s came with that type of tailpiece? Always thought they had stopbars, but I can't say I've seen many from 1965.

As to a new label I don't think you can get a real one anywhere. There are so many fake and counterfeit guitars out there that issuing labels would just make the problem worse.

Oh yeah the old trapeze bars... luv it.

If you want to restore the orange Kalamazoo label, try ebay. It could be fake. I just do not know.

Search for "Vintage Gibson Oval Orange Guitar Label Kalamazoo Gum Backed". I don't know and doubt if Gibson has a Kalamazoo label.
