$T2eC16JHJG!E9nm3pkMRBQM)W)o)Zg~~48_20.JPG

 

Some questions i had

 

What makes this a customshop? what is the diffwerence with the regular es 335's

 

Which kind of model is it exactly?

 

How do I read this certificatecode, next to the serial number you have this code: ESDYATENH1

 

What is a decent second hand price?

 

many thanks as usual!!

Lots of vague questions....

 

A serial number will permit more accurate identification [thumbup]

 

Looks like a nice guitar...value will depend on exact model, country, mint condition etc

Thanks!

 

The serial number is 11431747

 

on the looks i would say that it is a 63 reissue, but the warranty card only indiates the serial number and that strange code: ESDYATENH1 (above the serial number)

 

the guitar is in mint condition...

Thanks a lot!

 

So, everything looks legit, guitar and case?

 

no red flags anywhere?

 

There are a bunch of people on here who can help but they'd probably need more pix. To make sure it looks real, you have to look at the front and back of the headstock and its good to look at the neck and maybe some closer shots of the body.

The color is Antique Tea Burst. That's what the "AT" in that code is. I don't know the details on the rest of the code, other than the ES, which obviously means it's an ES body.

 

There's a difference between the ES-335s with "Custom" on the case, and guitars which are made in the Custom Shop. For example, Les paul Custom's aren't necessarily "Custom Shop" guitars.

That code means this: Gibson ES-335 Block Inlay Electric Guitar, Antique Tea Burst Gibson Memphis ESDYATENH1. Probably a 2011. If you'd like to confirm for sure ... call Gibson's Customer Support ... msp_thumbup.gif

 

I had a similar code when I bought my baby back in January. Called support and they read it off to me - great bunch of guys!

thanks alot for all the info

so to sum it up

 

It is a 2011 memphis build ES 335, antique sunburst with blocks

 

I am offered one for around 1,900 usd

 

would that be a nice deal?

 

IF THE INSTRUMENT IS 100% STOCK , in excellent cosmetic and playing condition and - is the real thing ... ABSOLUTELY[thumbup]

BTW ... it is NOT a "sunburst" ... it's a TEA BURST
