As known for his collecting as he is for his playing, Joe Bonamassa is an icon in the world of guitar. As the story goes, he picked up a vintage red 1962 Gibson ES-335 in 1996 to record his solo career debut record. Later in 2001 he sold the guitar to pay for his move to the west coast. We all know the story of the one we let go, but Joe was somehow lucky enough to be reunited with the very same guitar 20 years later and vowed never to part with it again.
The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa 1962 ES-335 embodies that lost and found story in a beautiful Sixties Cherry semi-hollow filled to the brim with Bonamassa approved features. The body is constructed from a 5-ply layered maple and adorned with a single-ply cream binding which runs up the fingerboard as well. Neck is a one-piece mahogany with a rounded C profile and a 1.69" nut width.
The Epiphone Deluxe tuners, Graph Tech nut, and the Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic work together to keep the guitar in tune whether or not you're using the Maestro Vibrola.
This special model is loaded with Gibson brand BurstBucker 2 and 3 pickups with nickel covers, CTS Pots, Mallory caps, Switchcraft Toggle, and Switchcraft jack.
Custom hardshell case with Bonamassa graphics, and a COA complete the package.
