This is a high-quality Indonesian (not a Chibson) ES-335 Semi-Hollow Body clone. It is finished in a highly saturated transparent orange burst over a very nicely figured book-matched maple top.

The pickups have been upgraded to Seymour Duncan P-Rails, which allow you to switch the pickup between being a humbucker, a P90, and a single-coil. The switching is done using the small switches on the Seymour Duncan Triple Shot pickup mounting rings.

Combining the set of P-Rails and 2 Triple Shots gives you 24 different tones at your fingertips without altering the guitar

The guitar plays very well, the frets are well finished, the nut is perfect and the tuners are high quality.

This guitar is a no-name. The branding on the headstock was done by the original owner using a wrap from skinyourskunk.com. If you wish you can easily remove the wrap and have a blank black headstock.

When I received the guitar it suffered from a neck scarf joint separation. It was professionally repaired by a well-known local guitar builder/repairman. I opted to not get the repair refinished so it is completely visible but you can hardly feel it and the repair is very solid.

There is also a tiny scratch above the lower F hole and a blemish in the clear coat just below the lower F hole. You really have to be looking closely to see them.

There are absolutely no dings, it's in perfect condition otherwise.

Included is a SKB hard shell case.

Here is info from Seymour Duncan regarding the P-Rails and the Triple Shot mounting rings:

In the past, if you wanted humbucker, P90 and Strat tones, you would have needed three different guitars. But now, the P-Rails humbucker delivers all three sounds in a pickup that is a drop-in replacement for any standard sized humbucker. The Triple Shot mounting rings (available flat for super strats or arched for Les Pauls), put 2 switches at your fingertips to easily select your voicing. You dont have to install a mini toggle, nor use push pull pots to access the different tones.

The bridge and neck P-Rails can each be split to give you an authentic P90, or it can be split to the Rail coil for Strat like tone. With both coils on, you get a big sounding humbucker that packs a nice full punch. The neck pickup in this set is RWRP (reverse wind, reverse polarity) so you are hum- free when using any single coil in the neck with one in the bridge. Combine them in any combo you want. Available with arched rings to be used on a guitar with a Les Paul-style carved topm or with flat rings for other guitars.

Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the P-Rails humbuckers use a pair of alnico 5 bar magnets, comes with 4-conductor leadwire for all of the wiring options, and they vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
