2005 Gibson ES 335 Satin Trans Black Upgrades OHSC
This sweet satin ES 335 was just traded in by a customer who invested quite a few dollars in some cool upgrades. First the stock pickups were replaced and a set of Lollar El Rayo's were installed. While it was at the shop getting the pickups installed the guitar had an amazing setup done and the frets were polished and shaped to play perfectly. All of this work and the pickups was over $800 in upgrades. If you're looking for a guitar with mojo this is it. She ships in her OHSC.
As per Lollar:
This isn't your typical humbucker. So if you think you don't like humbuckers, the El Rayo will change your tune. Tight and punchy with a high end that opens up when pushed, its lows remain fat and well-defined and capable of a meaty growl. It's also clear and articulate and extremely responsive to volume control and subjective picking dynamics so you can capture your own unique sound. And don't be fooled by the DC numbers - the El Rayo has a strong output without the heavy mid-range bump of typical humbuckers. Plus, it has less ohms than the Lollartron, giving you something closer to a single coil tone. That makes it superb for high gain amp playing because it doesn't compress when you beat on it. Instead, you get a pleasing and distinct distortion sound when pushed. Try it in a 335 with a Super Reverb for extra cut. Or mix with a traditional single coil to expand your sonic range. Made with Alnico 5 magnets in the neck and Alnico 8 magnets in the bridge. Covers are nickel silver.
