Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab '64 ES-335 Double Gold Top Dark Back Light Aged
Beautiful Custom Gold Top Dark Back '64 ES-335 from the Murphy Lab!
At Dijkmans Music we have joined forces with Gibson and have put together a series of unique guitars. This ES-335 is perhaps the crown prince of that. A historically correct 64'er with a Double Gold Top Dark Back finish of our choice.
You don't see them like this often: an ES-335 with a chic Gold Top finish! You might expect that this Murphy Lab Gibson is primarily a showpiece, but nothing could be further from the truth. The sound of this '64 Custom Shop ES-335 is packed with character and is beautifully woody as you would expect from real vintage copies. ES-335 models are of course mainly known for that legendary neck pickup tone, but as with every copy of this caliber, the bridge pickup also sounds fantastic. In contrast to the warm, glowing neck pickup, the bridge pickup here also sounds open and bright with a hint of jangle. The medium-C neck profile is just right: not too thin and not too thick, with a top-quality Indian Rosewood fingerboard. This ES-335 features Light Murphy Aging with light discolourations and cracks in the nitrocellulose lacquer. Very tasteful! Comes with chic Custom Shop Hardshell Case.
