Below is a quick video, so you can see in HD and pause etc. 1964 ES 335 are 16.5k in the 2018 Price Guide, and you just don't see them for sale much anymore.. Because they are Bell Tone Animals..I wanted the Peter Green Tone. That takes different pickups and wiring. I own many that sound the PAF tone, I wanted a different set up, so not many take the Nickel Cover Vintage Gibson Humbuckers out... so even more Rare...
They are 100% but owner before me popped the covers off.. I guess to be like Jimmy Page
Here are the Facts on these Great Pickups.. A 1964 ES-335 is $20,000-$28,000+.. What is that Guitar worth with wrong pickups???
About patent # PAFs:
1- Patent number label on the bottom, no T on the bobbins.
Used from /1962-1965
Nickel or Gold screws and covers
These are by far the most valuable non-PAF Gibson pickups.
They are essentially the same as the last version of the PAFs but have a different label on them.

My 64 ES 335 in these pictures I am happy with the Tone just as it is, and I love this 64 Gibson. I'm not touching nothing if I like and is bonded with me with these Bare Knuckle Peter Green pickups and wiring!
THESE GO ON A 20-28K GIBSON..... I WILL REGRET SELLING.. AND JUST MITE CHANGE MY MIND..... This is the price... Get over not PAF, made right after Gibson switched. You Ever play a 1964 ES 335 ??? BELL TONE!
You'll never see this again :)
Just picture these in that 1959 Burst project you got going on??
50+ years of BELL TONE Here Folks:
The last many picture are to show where these pickups came from. (THE PICKUPS IN MY 64 GIBSON IN THESE PICS ARE THE NEW PICKUPS I PUT IN.. THUS CROME COVER.. THESE PICKUPS I AM SELLING HAVE NICKLE COVERS) A Very well played 1964 ES 335. Look at the case even. This was placed all over USA and overseas. now you mite ask Why I take these great pups out? I always wanted a Old Wood hollow body Gibson with the Peter Green PAF Tone. Where the pickups are out of phase when on 10, but normal when on 8 or so. I wanted a axe with that distinct Tone. The Bare Knuckle Peter Green PAF humbuckers gave me that. BUT I needed a Old Guitar to do. So I did it. Thus in selling these. I said before..... these humbuckers are right after Gibson was using PAF pickups
I took the covers off Nice here... So NO GUESSING what year these are, you see the proof. One little dab with the soder iron, they be back like 100%.. but you know for a fact, Not T Tops, and Are 1964
Bell Tone City here folks!
