2015 Gibson Custom Shop Larry Carlton ES-335 Semihollow Electric Guitar

This pretty-faced ES-335 is a Larry Carlton "Mr. 335" custom shop model. It's very much in debt to '60s-style ES-335s for its feel and sound and shares its forebears' narrower nut width, C-shaped neck profile, and fast feel. This thing really does feel quite like a little rocket to play and it has a clean, easy sound that will adapt to a ton of styles. It doesn't hurt that it's easy on the eyes as well.

Ancel had to give the frets a decent workout to get them leveled and dressed properly but it's now playing spot-on and serves admirably.

Repairs included: a fret level/dress and setup work.
