On this episode, we’re focusing on a Penco ES-335 made in 1970s Japan. The history follows that when Gibson and other American companies started making guitars overseas, those manufactures made extremely similar guitars under their own brand names. This would be the ‘lawsuit era’ of guitars. What was left is a instrument in the spitting image of a Gibson ES-335, with almost the exact quality and sound of the original at the fraction of the original cost.
