Gibson / ES-335 TDC / 1964 / Cherry / Guitar For Sale
Here’s a Clapton spec 1964 Gibson ES-335TDC, with a mojo and sound that justifies the wear. Chunky neck, factory stop tailpiece, never had a Bigsby on it, no structural repairs, refinishes, breaks or anything of the sort.
Has some honest wear and checking throughout the whole body, especially in the back of the neck. Still looking good, though, and incredibly comfy to play. If the guitar’s been played, always think WHY that is. ;)
The guitar was played with the covers off for a number of years, which got lost through the years. Period-correct gold covers are currently fitted, but all the gold has worn off (luckily). The bridge pickup was waxed at some point (not rewound). Solder joints in tone pots have been retouched. Two Pat. No. pickups with stickers.
Bridge is a nickel wire Pat. No., tuners are Kluson single-line double rings. All guitar blacklights perfectly, no touchup, oversprays, breaks, refinishes, repairs or anything of the sort.
An overall fantastic-looking guitar, equally well-sounding, not cheap, but without the perfect-condition premium you’d expect to pay on a Clapton-spec 335.

Guitar Giraffe, Spain
In the last few years, online sale for musical instruments has experienced an amazing growth, but has passed right through the pre-owned market (that is, in Spain), limiting it to specialised forums and private owners. This is why Guitar Giraffe was born, the first physical and online second hand guitar and amp store (we like to call it "pre-owned", since we see a big difference between both terms), with a clear commitment of giving new options to guitarists locally and worldwide. Pre-owned guitar stores, so common in UK and USA, were practically nonexistent in Spain. We’ve wanted to fill that empty space by becoming the first physical and online store in our country focused on pre-owned guitars and amps.
