Epiphone ES-335 Pro (SOLD)
Alnico Pro Pickups
Do you play Jazz, Rock, Country, Rock n’ Roll, Blues, Britpop or Americana..? This guitar covers them all in stye! If you’ve ever fancied adding a nice semi-hollow to your collection, well, now could be a good time.
It’s in excellent condition with no nasty dings or scuffs whatsoever. So many sweet tones are available via judicious use of the volume & tone controls and split coils etc – tons of tonal variety right there at your fingertips.
As is standard with every guitar which visits the UnsungHeroGuitars workbench, this 335 will receive a full fret level, re-crown and polish to ensure that an optimal set up can be achieved without any unwanted buzzing, fretting out or dead-spots.
In addition to that, it will have the ‘less than stellar’ stock circuitry replaced with higher quality toggle switch, control pots, tone caps and braided cable to raise the overall standard and feel of the instrument.
It’ll all be topped of with a full body & hardware polish to remove any light scratches or tarnish, followed by a comprehensive set up with adjustments to neck relief, nut & saddle heights and intonation to ensure it plays perfectly – by all means let me know your set up and string preference!
In short, they simply don’t come off the production with this level of attention to detail or spec.

All guitars receive a comprehensive work over to address any issues. They get a full set up, a new set of good quality strings and come with a 30 day warranty.
Please note: whilst every effort is reasonably made to make this guitar as good, if not better than new, being pre-owned there may be some very light signs of use.
