Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever

Gibson's latest Custom Shop Reissue guitars include new appointments to add even more authenticity and vintage vibe to their guitars. Necks are now attached using hide glue which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Custom Shop also re-engineered the truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor to their original form. They also eliminated the tubing that surrounded the truss rod. New Kluson Green Key Tuners now feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. These features and others make the Gibson Custom 1963 ES-335 TD one of the most accurate reproductions ever.
