There are certain guitars that stand the test of time and with its timeless design, effortless playability and rich history, it's easy to see why the Gibson ES-335 remains such an iconic guitar.
Featuring a 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple body, it's finished in a slick, old school 60's Cherry VOS. Delivering a rich and authentic tone, this ES-335 is super resonant and beautifully balanced; it just oozes that vintage Gibson appeal. The nitro VOS finish is incredible and gives a vintage feel without any real wear.
The neck is something special, crafted from Mahogany; it features a gorgeous Indian rosewood fingerboard, embellished with small block inlays. With 22 frets and a 24.75" scale length it feels smooth and comfortable, equally at home playing slick lead work or heavy chord strumming. With hide glue construction, this 335 offers true vintage tonality.
A pair of Gibson Custombucker humbuckers delivers those classic PAF tones, deep, rich and resonant they offer great clarity. According to Gibson these are some of the most historically accurate PAF clones on the market, with an ultra-rich harmonic quality; it's as close as you can get to the classic 335 tone.
