1973 ES-335 TD


1962 J-45

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased A 1973 ES-335-TD. The neck needs to be reset. Can anyone recommend a good Luther in the Ocala, FL area? This is a beautiful guitar. It's walnut and is all original. The thought of packing it in a box and shipping it off to Nashville gives me the chills.

The neck was removed by the previous owner for an unknown reason. It was not put back together correctly. It doesn't seat perfectly against the body. There is an approx. 1/32" gap. The guitar can't be setup until this is corrected as the action is already high way down on the neck and it will only become higher if the gap is closed.

Not in the Ocala area, but Ross Teigen, down in Naples, FL, has done a couple of Gibson neck re-sets for me, including my '68 ES 335-12. Not cheap, but he does a great job.

 

Not sure of the neck tenon arrangement by 1973, as you're into Norlin territory.
