Dating a vintage Es-335TD

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, New to the forum so hello!


Anyway, recently my uncle passed away and I am inheriting his guitar. Its a Gibson Es-335TD.


What I am trying to figure out is the approximate year it was made and what the value of it is. My Aunt says believes its a 1956 but I don't think they were made that year.

I believe the serial number is 061078 (hard to read from the pictures). I don't actually have the guitar so all the info i can get is off these pictures. Can't look at the pot codes.

Just Curious, how do you know that?

Serial number is definitive, and is reinforced by so physical characteristics of the guitar. Value (assuming there is no damage or significant repair) could be from about $2500 to $3500, depending on condition. ES 335's from this period are not particularly in high demand.
