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 with a Maple centre block, it's finished in a classic Antique Ebony. Delivering a rich and authentic tone, the 2018 ES-335 Traditional is super resonant and beautifully balanced; it just oozes that real Gibson vibe.
The neck is something special, crafted from Quarter Sawn Mahogany; it features a gorgeous bound Rosewood fingerboard, embellished with the Pearloid Small Block inlays that followed the original '58 dot ones. 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.
A pair of Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers delivers those classic '60s tones, deep, rich and resonant they offer great clarity. These PAF style pickups are slightly underwound and feature unbalanced coils for a truly historic sound.
With a Gibson hardcase, this guitar is vintage in every aspect but age!
