1958 Vintage Gibson ES-335

images via this auction

"ALL-Original ES-335. It is a 1958 Model, Sn# A28094 on the orange label. Tobacco sunburst, single bound top and back, unbound fretboard with dot inlays, original PAF pickups, all original wiring harness, long style pickguard, stop tailpiece and tunamatic bridge with correct brass bridge pieces, the guitar shows moderate fretboard wear, the frets are very playable, the top has some moderate finish checking to some areas, 5 of the original tuner buttons have been replaced with proper single ring tulips, and the first string button is still on the guitar but is shrunken. Original white strap buttons. All control knobs are original and all switches are working fine. The owner had installed a small square that matches the pickguard under the jack plug, not sure why he did this but it actually it looks as if it belongs there."
