Here's one you might've expected only to find "In Dreams."

Back by popular demand! After the massive success of the 70th anniversary Orbison 335 Ebony in 2006 (sold out in 2 hours!), the Gibson Custom Shop returns with another limited run. Don't miss another chance to own a rare Orbison tribute ES-335. Only 200 will be built. These will be serialized as ROY 001 through ROY 200. Includes Custom Shop case, certificate of authenticity, and custom care kit.

Roy Orbison covered a wide range of musical styles, from rockabilly to straight-ahead rock to soaring ballads. It's not surprising that he chose the Gibson ES-335 for it's versatility and reliability. This Roy Orbison 335 features the classic semi-hollowbody design and dual '57 Classic humbuckers that combine to produce everything from full-bodied growls to singing sustain. The Roy Orbison 335 also features a mahogany, thin tapered 1960s neck and rosewood fingerboard (24-3/4" scale), single-ply creme binding, nickel-plated hardware with vintage tulip tuners, ABR-1 bridge with TP-6 tailpiece, separate volume and tone controls, and a 3-way switch. Pearloid dot inlays on the fingerboard, a holly inlay on the headstock, and an engraved Roy Orbison signature on the truss rod cover complete the timeless look.
