A maroon (Wine colored) 1979 Gibson ES335 and the original hard case with a KINKS sticker on it was stolen in Eureka California on Wednesday Dec 1st 2004. The guitar is very distinguishable by a toggle switch on the lower left hand corner of the body (closest to the neck). It is my one and only guitar..bought new off the rack in 1979...answers to the name of Lucretia. Any and all help would be appreciated in getting this instrument back. Thank you.
http://www.rumbleseatmusic.com/gibsonelectrics.html ES-335 in 'wine red' Posted as a 1977 model, I am mooning these guitars and the switch you describe may be a very common modification. I apologize if it gets your hopes up for nothing. See the photo in the listing at this URL. Thanks, Kent
