    All I can say about this guitar is WOW! I scored this off CL today.($150). I needed a 335 style for my collection, as I have lots of others. CIELO means SKY in Spanish. Check out all the binding. Even the F-hole is bound. Very nice maple top and one piece Maple neck and good tight rosewood. I like my Rosie tight! Nicely set too.
    Pickups need replaced but I will swap them out but won't touch 335 internal wiring again. Last time that ship sailed it was an 8 hour tour.

    I just did some digging and found that these were only made 2007-2008.

    Oh god no! You will HATE them in a heartbeat! I had them in a Maestro (Not a Gibson product) and couldn't wait to rip them out, along with the wiring, and moving the bridge, and replacing the nut, and doing loads of fret work, and changing the tremolo, and the tuners..... Catching my drift? But no, those pickups are the worst of the cheap Chinese pickups mankind has ever made.

    I don't know what planet you live on, but the 335 is an awesome guitar, and I don't say that lightly. I changed the pickups by choice but everything else is Cadillac....Gibson could learn a lesson from these guys.

    I was talking the Maestro I had. Same pickups as the one you are getting.
