    She has known for years how much I have lusted for one. 2018 Gibson ES-335 Satin Limited Release. Been grabbing the one on the wall at my local shop the past couple months every time I go in. Turned out they also had an untouched one out back....and told me they would sell to me at cost. A massive savings but still alot of money. Told my wife about it and said someday... came home from work and she poured me a scotch and presented me with this. Beyond stunned! 20200221_185619.jpg 20200221_185715.jpg 20200221_185853.jpg 20200221_185859.jpg 20200221_185908.jpg

    You must be quite a guy to be treated so. Im happy for you for the guitar but even more happy for your relationship. I sometimes take my guitars for granted..... but a wife is to be treasured every day

    Thanks again guys, yes my wife is pretty special. She's put up with me for 28 years not an easy task! The 335 plays and sounds incredible! I love the understated look of the satin finish with the aged cream binding. Perfect like my wife.
