New for 2013 comes the 50th Anniversary Gibson 63 ES335 reissue, celebrating 50 years of one of the most iconic and historically relevant electric guitars from the Golden Age of Gibson Guitars. It is available in two fabulous colors, Historic Burst and 60s Cherry. The Historic Burst harkens back to the bursts used on the originals, the amber center and brown edges are softer and look more “aged”. The 60s Cherry color looks authentic and like a vintage 60s 335, it has more of a ruby look to it with a fabulous “older” hue. This incredible semi-hollow body has been extensively reworked, it features historically correct slim horns at the cutaway, thinner period-correct body, hand selected lightweight woods including the mahogany neck and correct “window” centerblock, cedar rim lining, spruce back and top bracing, period correct wiring harness and “Black Beauty” capacitors. The neck profile has been painstakingly redone to match the original, it is fairly thin at the nut and tapers beautifully to a more chunky neck at the 12th fret, the neck heel is smaller and also vintage correct. The 63 ES335 comes with long studs and inserts that transmit more vibration and soul between the neck and body, ABR-1 bridge and lightweight tailpiece, Burstbucker 1 and 2 pickups, Nylon saddles, tulip button single-line Kluson tuners, and a black with yellow lining case like the originals. We love these impeccable instruments and feel they will inspire everyone who plays them. A huge thanks from all of us at Wildwood Guitars to our friends in Memphis for these epic ES335s!!
