Gibson Custom Shop Larry Carlton ES-335 (Mr. 335) Excellent condition with two minor things noticed (see pics for examples). 1) the headstock has some rubbing wear 2) The bottom bass-side corner of the neck binding shows a little roughness and a small indentation on the fretboard. 3) The 1st and 2nd frets have a bit of something on the edge. Filler? Adhesive? I don't know (I'm the 2nd owner) so I took detailed photos

As Larry Carlton has shown throughout his incredible, multi-faceted career as a first-call session guitarist and a successful recording artist, the double-cutaway, semi-hollowbody ES-335 is the perfect guitar for practically any musical setting. It's as perfect a fit for jazz and fusion as it is for blues and beyond. The Larry Carlton signature model features all the personal specs of the man known around the world as "Mr. 335," from the custom '60s neck profile to the Vintage Sunburst finish with single-ply cream binding.

Larry Carlton has played on countless hit records and best-selling albums. His solos on many Steely Dan recordings alone would make him one of the most respected session players in the business, but Larry has played in a veritable encyclopedia of styles from hard rock to cutting edge jazz fusion. His weapon -- err, well, guitar of choice has long been a Gibson ES-335 from the 1960s. The Larry Carlton Signature ES-335 captures the look and vibe of this versatile tone machine.
