Gibson Peghead

The Golden Era of the Gibson Thinlines

Tom Bukovac is one of the few Nashville session players players to extensively use vintage guitars for his work. On top of it, he uses 335s quite often.

This one is a beautiful example of a 1960 Sunburst ES-335. Note the pearl studs in the tailpiece bushings. That is typical of Gibson when someone ordered a guitar with a BIgsby. Note also the shrunken tuner buttons on the Klusons.

Tom has shared 3 other guitars with us... a 1958 ES-335, a 1959 ES-355 Mono, and a 1960 ES-335TDN. Thanks so much Tom for sharing your guitars with us.
