Since this era is largely our own perception of what’s desirable and what isn’t, you have to assume that something changed.Was it simply that Gibson and later Norlin, made inferior guitars? So, what happened following the so-called “Golden Era”?
Call 2 or email me at [email protected] end of the Golden Era-the Gibson executives decide on what changes will make the 335 (or in this case, the 345) more competitive with the rival Fender line. Most of us will acknowledge that the most desirable 335’s are 58 and 59 dot necks.

64’s are pretty desirable too and all of these fall into what is commonly referred to as the “Golden Era”.
Judging by the characteristics of these three years, the conclusion is pretty clear. But there has to be more to it than that or Gibson would have simply kept on with what they were doing.
