12 String ES-335TD 1965?


Recommended Posts

I recently inherited this guitar, it needs a bit of TLC but is generally in good shape. I'd love some help identifying it properly based on my research I *think* it is a 1965 but not 100% sure. Also not exactly sure what I would call the color. Serial number is: 346468, stamped in the headstock and on the orange Kalamazoo sticker. No made in USA and the sticker is mostly hand written.

Everything about the guitar says 1965, including the serial number. I recently sold a nearly-identical (except for the knobs) near-mint 1968 ES 335-12. The finish is a traditional sunburst which has faded a bit over time, which is also typical. When they replicate that faded 'burst in a modern guitar, they often refer to it as an ice tea 'burst, or a faded sunburst.


By the way, that's the original case, which is actually more rare than the guitar.
