    I bought this new in 2017. There are no issues with it at all. It was set up by Pete Moreno. The neck is straight. The action is low. The pickups sound excellent. Here are the specs. I don't believe Gibson makes this anymore.

    $2800 plus shipping and PP fees, if any.

    Price drop $2500. Checks ok.

    Ha! I had a 2017 ES-335 and it had a very nice neck for my taste, so I presume this one will be just fine.

    Yes, this is one of the years that Gibson did Richlite on this model (they went to rosewood after for a year or two and are now back to Ebony. MAP on a new one with an ebony board is 6K.

    I actually hesitated to buy this guitar in 2017 because of the richlite board (I was afraid of future value and as it turns out, my fears were unfounded). A day later, when I went to purchase this guitar, they were all gone. MG's sale to me is an antidote to a regret.

    We will see. My first ES-335 came to me with a Bigsby and I replaced it with a stop tailpiece (back in the early 80's). I would not do that again, but replacing (and keeping) the Bigsby with a trapeze might be an option. I have had two guitars with Bigsby's in the last 15 years and liked the ability to do vibrato chord endings, but I hated string changes. There is an aftermarket part (linked below) that you can get to make string changes easy, but that adds a few ounces, and a semi hollow with a Bigsby is already in Les Paul territory weight wise. And I am not getting any younger.
