Cosmetic Condition: The top has some scratching and dings but is looking great for the age of this guitar. The sides have some scuffs, dings, and binding wear / coloration and the back has some scratching and buckle rash throughout. The neck has some large spots of finish loss and play wear and the headstock has some hazing on the face with some dings around the edges. This ES-335TD is a semi-hollow dream guitar!

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

Modifications/Repairs: The guitar has had a neck reset. It has been refretted with tall frets and there is some finish touchup around the neck/body joint. The back of the neck has been oversprayed. The tuners and strap buttons have been replaced. Solder joints in the wiring harness have been touched up. There is a push button switch added to the top. It is wired as a kill switch.
