Pickups/Hardware: Schaller tuners, two humbuckers (rated at 7.7 kOhms in the neck and 7.6 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls, Varitone rotary switch

Cosmetic Condition: The top has some heavy checking with some play wear and dings throughout. Screws remain from a removed tailpiece. The sides have some finish and binding wear and case rash and the back has some buckle rash and dings throughout. The neck is worn nice and smooth and the headstock has some edge wear, discoloration (from age), and the veneer is shrinking slightly. This beautiful, vintage ES-335TDSV is a tonal chameleon!

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

Modifications/Repairs: The poker chip is missing. The tuners have been replaced with Schallers and the neck pickup has been changed to a Seymour Duncan Antiquity. The vibrola has been removed and a stopbar installed. There has been a heel repair. One neck pickup screw is broken inside the body, a bone nut has been installed, and the guard has been replaced.
