Comments about Gibson 2015 1963 ES-335TD Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I was really looking forward to replacing my 1965 ES 335 TD that had even stolen.
Guitar was returned to Gibson right after it was delivered because the 1st 5 frets on g string and also B string had notes that were 10-45 cents,sharp after having it Intonated by tech at Guitar Center as well as by professional,luthier.
Gibson Intonated it and said it was in Spec according to Gibson Specs
When I got it back from Gibson it still had sharp notes on 1st 5 frets on g and b strings after being perfectly Intonated at nut and 12 fret.
Brought it back, which is a real shame because it was a beautiful guitar with incredible action and wonderful tone, but totally unacceptable to have so many sour notes.

      Comments about Gibson 2015 1963 ES-335TD Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

      Hands down, this is the best instrument I have ever played, much less owned. I have over 30 guitars in my collection, including a 72 vintage ES and other Gibsons, and this model just sings. The MHS pickups are so versatile and vintage sounding; the guitar has incredible sustain with the extended neck joint tenon, the neck is just a hair thicker than the 60s slim profile, but very fast and playable, stays in tune perfectly. Incidentally, I just took the Memphis Gibson factory tour, and the the guide mentioned to me that this model is believed to be the best guitar the factory has ever produced. Get one if you can. You won't be sorry...
