1984 Gibson ES-335 Dot in Ebony

Ok, for details about the 1981-1985 Gibson ES-335, this blog does it better than me:

8.3 Pounds of Retro 80s Glory.  The Ebony ones are a bit rarer, so I was very happy to bring this one back to the USA from its residence in Canada.  The former owner must have been a heavy smoker, because it has decades of tobacco stain all over it, haha.  Well I kinda like the look, and over the years the smell has gassed off, so all that is left is that real deal smoky look.  Honestly, everything on this including the case looks like a genuine relic, ha.  It sounds as good as it looks too, the Shaw Humbuckers help that cause out.  Here’s a picture of it, not going to blog long about it or shoot it from all angles at the moment, since I’m currently being transported back to my New Wave days:
