1961 Gibson ES 335

via this auction where you'll find more pics.

"1961 Gibson ES 335 Serial # 3613o. The guitar is in absolute superb condition, with only 2 little dings and no scratches.

The finish is still vibrant and the guitar is a lightweight at 7.8lbs. It was bought in 1961 by professional guitar player Stuart Mitnik as you can

see on the original receipt which is still in the case. He had it outfitted with an Epiphone-style Mastro Vibrola (His name is on it, if you look closer), but now it is outfitted

with an early sixties Stop-Tailpiece. The original Vibrola Unit and Custom Made plaque with the original screws are includet.

It is one of the very last A series serial numbers (17 before the last one issued: A-36147) and it also carries an early impressed number on the back of the headstock, making it likely from February of 1961.

The guitar was sold in April 61."
