Summary: When Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson lost his workhorse '63 ES-335 in a flood, Gibson was able to recreate his main axe in VOS (vintage original spec) detail. A slip taper neck with a wider nut, dual Burstbuckers and a Bigsby set this signature 335 apart. The initial limited run included only 500 specimens, each of which is numbered on the back of the headstock.

Body: Laminated Maple top/back/sides, VOS Cherry finish.

Neck: Mahogany with a Rosewood fingerboard, 24.75” scale length, 1.68” nut width, 22 frets, pearl block inlays.

Pickups/Hardware: Dual Burstbuckers, Kluson Deluxe keystone tuning keys, Bigsby tailpiece, 2x volume/2x tone controls/3-way pickup selector, tunomatic bridge, “Custom Made” badge.

Cosmetics: This guitar is in great shape. It has light surface scratches throughout. It does have some deeper scuffs on the top of the body on one of the horns and near the bridge (See Photos Please).

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Modifications: This guitar does not come with the original black pickguard.

Weight: 8.615 lbs.

Case: This guitar ships in the original hard-shell case with COA, professionally packaged, and fully insured.
