Gibson ES-335 Satin/Gloss Top Iced Tea - special run?


Recommended Posts

In looking around at the various 335 options I came across this:

So it's a 335 with Iced Tea finish, gloss top but satin back, sides and neck. This is pretty much what I would ideally like (though I'd prefer 57s to Burstbuckers). It even has coil tapping. I haven't been able to find any other information about it. Was this just a temporary special run? When? How much did they go for? I'd really like to find out more.

 

The blurb states:

 

"An ES-335 with Zebra BurstBucker Pickups made splittable by activating Push/Pull Volume Potentiometers provides the classic look and feel of the ES-335 and the ability to dominate any genre of guitarist's needs with even greater tonal flexability. Nowhere else can you find guitars with the real tonal range control of switching from a rich BurstBucker to a hot Single Coil with the silent pull of the Volume knob. Once you have the control at your fingertips, you'll wonder what you did without the endless possibilities of sound. This Limited Run has a glossy top and a smooth satin everywhere else, with your choice of a summery Iced Tea Burst or intimidating Translucent Black."

 

Anyone know more about them? How widely available were they? How likely am I to be able to find one on the second-hand market? Thanks!
