A piece of Rock history, Ritchie Blackmore’s 1961 Gibson ES-335 which he used in the Three Musketeers prior to Deep Purple, Ritchie used this guitar for the solo in the 1970s track “Child in Time” the 335 was his main guitar from 1964 to 1971 at which point he began to favor the Fender Strat.
The guitar is pretty much just as RB left it, it still has the original case with Deep Purple stencils, the finish is original as are the PAF pickups & all electronics, the playwear that you see is all Ritchie Blackmore inflicted from years of gigging & recording sessions.
The guitar has been the main exhibit at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame following the bands induction in 2015.
