    Justin Hayward-Owned Custom Gibson Guitar (1975) This beautiful custom-shop ES 335TD semi-hollowbodied electric guitar (serial number 550595) was one of only two created especially for Justin Hayward, of the Moody Blues. Hayward was given the guitars in celebration of his 1975 "Blue Jays" album with John Lodge. Justin kept one, and donated this one to be offered in a "Blue Guitar" contest by his American label, London. Some time later, Hayward lost his guitar in a house fire, leaving only this rare example. The primary attraction is the custom finish, which was originally a deep metallic blue-green; over time, the blue has faded, leaving a still-vibrant and attractive green finish. The guitar is in Excellent condition, ready to plug in and play; it comes with a standard Gibson hardshell case. Rock on!
