The Gibson Custom Shop's reputation in crafting outstanding electric guitars precedes it. From the most cutting-edge modern creations to faithful revivals of classics, the Gibson Custom Shop's expertise in electric guitar crafting knows no bounds.
This entry from the Gibson Custom Shop is a historically-accurate reissue model of the Gibson ES-335 from 1959. As the first semi-hollow electric guitar Gibson ever produced first launched in 1958, the ES-335 had quite the place to fill in the electric guitar landscape of the time. Decades later, it is clear how popular the ES-335 was with players of the day, thus ensuring its longevity in the minds and hands of players across generations.
This Custom Shop creation features a semi-hollow body made constructed from maple and poplar. This wood combination works in tandem with the iconic-double cutaway body shape for unparalleled rich acoustic resonance. This sound, once harnessed by a pair of specially calibrated Custombucker Alnico III humbucker pickups, can be played with elegant cleans or formidable overdrives. The vintage tone of this reissue are reverent to the original models while being compatible with many styles of modern playing.
A solid mahogany neck shaped in an Authentic ’59 Medium "C" profile is coupled with an Indian rosewood fingerboard for a smooth and comfortable feel in hand. An adjustable ABR-1 bridge ensures stability in playing and tuning while a Gibson Vintage Original Sheen finish makes this ES-335 look distinguished and vintage right out of its case.
The Gibson Custom Shop's boundless creativity and tireless devotion to ensuring quality to the last detail is on full display with this bold semi-hollow icon.
