1991 ES 335

Recommended Posts

I just saw a 1991 cherry red ES 335 on eBay, asking price $2200. The price seems reasonable. The seller happens to live close to me so I could even drive there and pick it up, giving me a little bargaining advantage. I'm thinking of offering around $1800. But of course the question is...do you guys know anything about the early 90's models? Anything specific about that period that would make it advisable not to spend around two grand?

 

Thank you in advance for your input

IME the 90s Gibsons were great. I have two from the 90s. An ES135 and a Les Paul Standard. No idea on the asking price, but if it's close to mint, and everything is in order, may be well worth it.

 

Good luck!

I have a 1990/91 dot 335 and it is my favorite of three 335s from 90 forward. No idea what they go for right now. But, no complaints 0n the one I own, if that is of any help. Good luck.

I have a late '90's Les Paul which is a beauty & sounds great! From what I've seen the 90's was a good period for Gibson.. Although, each Guitar stands on it's own.... Check it out thoroughly..

The biggest advantage I can see to living close to the seller is you can go play the guitar and see for yourself how it is. If it feels good and sounds good and you can give it a close inspection that is all you need. Reputation for certain time periods isn't all that reliable as every era has some great guitars built and probably a few not so great.

 

Generally though the reputation of the builds from the 90s are good.
