Body: Two-piece maple top and back, mahogany sides "R6080 22" stamped inside body, original sunburst finish

Neck: One piece mahogany neck with a medium “C” profile, 1 11/16” wide nut, Brazilian rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and split parallelogram inlays. Double parallelogram inlays is not typical of ES-335s. Small area of binding missing on bass side from 21-23 frets

Pickups/Hardware: Kluson Deluxe tuners, two humbuckers (rated at 7.95kOhms in the neck and 7.19k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls (All original nickel components. Original tuner buttons are very shrunken. Electronics all original. pots and solder joints look untouched.)

Cosmetic Condition: The body looks incredibly clean for its age with just a handful of minor dings and scuffs around the bass f-hole and some other usual play wear. The back has some light patches of buckle rash as well as the former owner’s social security number near the binding but overall the finish looks great. The neck and headstock are both nice and glossy with hardly a mark on either aside from some minuscule dents. The headstock has some usual wear around the edges but it looks especially clean otherwise. This rare special order Split Parallelogram ES-335 is simply gorgeous and looks to have been extremely well cared for!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: Original owner’s SS# etched into back of the body
