When my dad was 19(over 30 years ago) he had a Red Gibson semi-hollowbody (gibson 335 or such) he bought for $75 with gold pickups, bridge, ect. and block inlays. He lost it when he moved to New York and I was wondering if I could find the model, because it sounds like a kickass guitar.

They're not going to be making that exact model with those specs anymore...

You'd be able to find a vintage one though. Have a look at some of the early-mid 60's ES-335s

Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'
If it had gold hardware and block inlays, it was probably an ES-355:

Not all ES-355s had a Bigsby or a Gibson Lyre tremolo, but most of them did.
