Need help with gibson es 335 1958


Recommended Posts


However it is very unlikely given that 1958 ES-335s had humbucking pickups and an inlay on the front headstock.  The machine heads are different also; your guitar looks to have a close similarity to the 2019 ES-335 with P90s, although those usually had a stop tailpiece.  Google images -



These are 1958 or '59 ones -



Better pics needed including headstock, back of headstock, label inside soundhole, bridge, etc.  To do that you'd have to take the pics then upload them to an image-sharing site (imgur etc) and they provide a direct link which you copy and paste into your post on this forum - if that makes sense.

Best wishes!

It looks similar to an ES-330 around 1960……..

Yes more likely to be a dot 330 but machines must have been changed in that case?  Can't see if the neck's bound.

There should be a label inside the soundhole.
