Well here's a bit of history repeating itself. This beautiful '59 ES 335 had a Bigsby installed at some point in it's life and then removed. The holes were filled and touched up but you can see them in the pics. The big and tails piece pmts look to be aged but may not be original to the guitar. People did this to the originals and now they do it to the reissues. Personally this guitar sounds so monstrous the way it is I'd leave it as a stop tail but the choice is there. Also looks like black strap buttons have been added. She ships in her original case with Gibson Custom Shop COA.
