Wow, condition looks about as nice as my '03 black '59 Historic 335.
Must have been very well cared for all of these years.

Nice catch and I see the model correction is made both on the sticker & in Gibsons records as well.

Is it TOO clean? Not doubting that it is the guitar in the shipping log, but I have never seen a nitro finish survive that well. I dont think I see a single scratch or single check...

Well now... the question should not be whether or not the finish is original - the question IS > would I own a refinished guitar (?)

- it's ok moon - I respect you - I still gotta start my 68 GT Thread in your honor... someday I hope to get the time...

The finish is as Virgin as Mother Mary herself

I know - I'm new at this game (really ?), but in time you guy's will learn to trust in me...

Oh, and thank you for chiming in # 12 Banker - always enjoy all your words of wisdom

Peace Brothers,
Lary
