Gibson has released an entirely authentic rendition of one of the most iconic guitars of the sixties at NAMM 2015, distinguished from previous incarnations by its slimmer taper cutaways and block inlays and on this new model by a figured maple top. Up to date features for the new 1963 ES-335TDC Figured VOS (Vintage Original Spec) model in 60’s Cherry finish include MHS humbuckers with Alnico magnets, CTS pots, nickel plated ‘VOS’ hardware, historic truss rod, rolled neck binding, 45 degree bevel on plastic parts and quartered Adirondack spruce braces.

MNJ has been writing articles, reviews and blogs for the DV online magazine for the last five years or so. Although he has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and is now officially an 'oldie', he is still mad for all things guitar related and when not busy in his studio he's learning new songs, practising bluegrass guitar, painting his house and taking his dogs out. If banished to a desert island and forced to take only one guitar he'd take a Les Paul. Actually, make that several Les Pauls, a Strat, a Tele, an ES-335, a vintage Martin and some boutique amps. Battery powered obviously.
