This 2016 ES-335 guitar is unlike any other, this is the Premiere Figured ES-335 constructed from the finest tonewoods for a beautiful sound and appearance. The ES-335 is one of the most famous semi-hollowbody guitars in the world, and you can still expect the absolute best in craftsmanship from the expert Gibson Memphis luthiers, who have put all their time and effort into hand-making this stunning guitar.


The top, back and sides of the curved ES-335 body is constructed from premium AAA-grade figured maple / poplar / maple which is strongly held together using the Franklin Titebond adhesive. This traditional semi-hollowbody guitar features a lightweight maple centre block which is designed to prevent feedback and unwanted noise or interference, thus offering optimum clarity. The warm Faded Lightburst colour of the body is treated with a protective layer of nitrocellulose lacquer. This helps prevent unwanted or premature damage happening to the tonewood, allowing it to stand the test of time. The figured body top can naturally present itself through the gloss finish, so you can see the individual character of the 3-ply maple and poplar.


Gibson have joined a smooth mahogany neck via a sturdy set-in joint to the body. The neck is given a rounded "C" profile that feels comfortable as soon as it is placed in the hand, improving overall playability. The neck is topped with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with a 12 inch radius which is decorated with classic Mother of Pearl block inlays to guide you in effortlessly transitioning from one fret to the next.


Two Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers are fitted to the ES-335 Premiere Figured model to reproduce an accurate PAF vintage tone. Fitted in the neck and bridge positions you are presented with a wide range of tones, whether you want singing treble notes or saturated, heavy chords. The MHS Humbuckers are powered by almighty Alnico magnets to deliver a dynamic, robust voice.

Four controls feature on the body to control the Volume and Tone of the neck and bridge pickups, and a 3-way pickup toggle switch enables you to shape your sound by shifting between pickup combinations.


For improved sustain and resonance, the ES-335 Premiere Figured is fitted with an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles and accompanied by a lightweight locking stop bar tailpiece.

The headstock features reliable Milk Bottle Grover Rotomatic tuners, keeping each string in tune while you play. The traditional Gibson logo and crown adorns the headstock for a neat finishing touch.

For the best possible protection for the 2016 ES-335 Premiere Figured guitar, Gibson supply a hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity with this purchase.
