  5. Feel free to call our Customer Service Department in the US and tell them the RMA number and/or serial number of the guitar. They can find out for you: 1-800-4GIBSON (1-800-444-2766) Kind regards, Stijn Vergeest Gibson Europe Customer Service
  6. The guitar looks original to me too. Machine heads and nut were probably exchanged indeed and covers were probably taken off. Don't see the reason also for him stringing the strings over the stopbar? Anyway; this model was issued for the Uk in 2012, it looks like that one: •AAAFlamed Top (On Premium Plus skus) •CompoundRadius Rosewood Fingerboard •60sNeck Profile •New“Modern”WeightRelief •Switchcraft® output jack/ Locking Grover KidneyTuners •DualBurstbucker Pro Pickups/Tone Pros TOM and Stop Bar •2Push/Pull Volume –Splitsfrom humbucker tosingle coil. –Improvedfrequency tuned coil tapping for a fatter single coil tone, and better outputbalance. •2Push/Pull Tone –PhaseSwitch –PureBypass takes the bridge pickup straight out the jack.
  7. Hey Mike, A few hours should be enough, and let the room in which you unpack the guitar heat up slowly. See also here, it happens if you immediately open the case after you have been outside in the cold: My instrument has small cracks in the finish – what causes this? Is it covered under the warranty? This is known as 'finish checking'. This is a result of the instrument being subjected to a rapid change in temperature or humidity. In most cases it happens in winter when a chilled instrument is exposed to warm air. The cracks are a result of the wood expanding faster than the lacquer. Since we have no control over the environmental conditions surrounding the use of the instrument we cannot cover this type of situation under our warranty.

  8. the factory mounted strings are Gibson brite wires: http://store.gibson.com/brite-wire-electric-guitar-strings/ ultra light mediums
  9. There are already not many Gibson employees who are working that long for the company, let alone guys from customer service. The name Ferrari red is already in its name, inspired by the ferrari's:-)
  10. We do give 2 years warranty on our guitars, but when you remove the gforce tuners the warranty is voided also we can send you one Gforce machine head though if you need one, no problem.
  11. The J-45 rosewood that I own is still my favorite, it has a very warm sound. Hope to be able to play the J-45 all mahogany though also, I'm curious how it sounds.

    Gibson ES 335

    Hi, If the serial number is 81618553; this is registered here as an ES-335 dot, in vintage sunburst, with nickel hardware, from 1988, made at the USA division in Nashville. I have attached two documents, one from 1980 and one from 1992, 1988 was a bit a transitional period. Kind regards, Stijn Vergeest Gibson Europe Customer Service 00800-4GIBSON1 00800-44427661 www.gibson.com service.europe@gibson.com
  13. The serial number refers in our database to a 1963 ES-335 block reissue, 50th anniversary, VOS, in historic burst, with nickel hardware, from 2013, made by the Memphis division.
  14. Please find attached some info taken from the Gruhns Guide to Vintage Guitars regarding the Olympic and the Olympic special. Kind regards, Stijn Vergeest Gibson Europe Customer Service 00800-4GIBSON1 00800-44427661 www.gibson.com service.europe@gibson.com Olympic Special.doc Olympic.doc

  17. Hi, We don't use the term "Shaw" pickups really as official term. There were simply different types of PAF pickups during the years, please see the following website also: http://www.guitarhq.com/paf.html Kind regards, Stijn Vergeest Gibson Europe Customer Service 00800-4GIBSON1 00800-44427661 www.gibson.com service.europe@gibson.com

    The general owner's manual would apply to this guitar model also, see attached. Regarding the truss rod key, we always have been changing this in the past, because there are customers who are not very known with this tool, and that you can really damage the neck and/or void the warranty. That has always been one of our considerations. We did put them in the case in the past though, and sometimes this changes between divisions also. If you need one, just let me know however. kind regards, Stijn Vergeest Gibson Europe Customer Service 00800-4GIBSON1 00800-44427661 www.gibson.com service.europe@gibson.com USA_Owners_Manual.pdf
