Nice! Congrats! You will enjoy it for years to come.......
Congratulations! You picked up a nice vintage ES-335. :dude:
Your post touched upon the thorny subject of vintage guitar pricing, in Europe I believe.
I don't know much about the European vintage guitar market in 2020, but in the U.S, a 1967/'68 Gibson ES-335 TDC w/ Bigsby, OHSC, in very good, original condition, is a $4,000 to $4,800 guitar. In collectable grade, "minty" condition, a 1968 ES-335 is possibly a $5,000 - $5,500 guitar. The Bigsby and narrow nut-width (1-9/16") impact the value significantly. Advice don't overpay.
