NGD: Gibson Nashville Custom ‘61 ES-335 VOS


Recommended Posts

So, I’m back to being a one-guitar guy again. Sold my 330 and my avri 57 strat. Lol

But I think, I like it this way, especially since I finally got to a point wherein, I can no longer have anything better. And it’s my first ever custom shop from any brand. Also, my amp/rig gets a little more focused, and I have a little more direction on where to go next. I’ll sorely miss my Avri 57 strat though. But I cant keep it.

I played my cards right, i think.

She’s here.

If you have the chance to let go of everything to chase the one, will you do it?


I’m probably crazy, or just stricken with this beautiful 335.


This is the exact guitar I have:

That top is killer. You can never go wrong with a 335. The best electric's Gibson ever did.

had the chance to play it live last Sunday.. I'm absolutely in heaven in playing this guitar.. 

The playability and build quality is definitely what sets this guitar above anything I've ever played. wow, just wow.




another view of the gorgeous top this 335 has! the last pic I ever took of my strat which is now gone to fund this 335.. LOL

Due to Gibson’s lacklustre qc on notching their bridge saddles, I bought a replacement Faber bridge so I can correct my string spacing (on the bridge) and have a nice alignment of strings from the stop tail, to the fretboard, to the nut! Gibson’s notching on the saddles aren’t centered and are all over the place!

At least my OCD now is satisfied.

I had to notch some new saddles a short while back. Glad to have the right nutfiles at hand.

Yeah, I have files as well, but I just chose notched saddles to knock out the work Id have to do.. I did file more to secure the strings in their slots, but at least, the work is minimal. hehe
