|1965 Gibson ES335TD|
*click on the picture for more detail
I bought this guitar in 1968, after falling in|
love with B.B. King. I then realized the
direction that I needed to go in.
I saved my lunch money and allowance
in a tissuebox on top of my dresser.
It cost me all of $210!
The pickups died on me, and I put in
Seymour Duncan 59ers with creme
I still have the pickguard...
It's in my closet.
I also put on Grover tuning pegs.
It's got a sweet tone.
I used it alot on the Blue Angel record.
I don't take it on the road with me anymore.
There is a warm spotin my heart for this guitar.
It was my first "real" guitar.
(My veryfirst guitar was a $19. Teisco Del Rey electric.
My second was a $33. Harmony acoustic
...which was stolen.)
