Despite it's short production run, the 335S series had plenty of publicity; it appeared in the following Gibson brochures and advertisements between 1980 and 1981.
The only American catalogue to feature the solid-boy 335-S guitars was the 1980. All three models were shown, the Deluxe, in the Professional series, and the Custom and Standard in the Firebrand series.
This 1981 Rosetti catalogue / pricelist shows the range of Gibson guitars available in the UK at this time, including all three 335S models, the Standard, Custom, and Deluxe, priced respectively at £489, £555 and £629.
