Since its birth in the late 1950s, the ES-335 has been one of Gibson's most treasured guitars. This model has been fitted with a slim neck and figured body top, allowing the natural grains of the wood to present themselves. The 2016 ES-335 Slim Neck is a stunning guitar with top quality appointments to attract the avid musician.


The ES-335 Slim Neck retains the traditional semi-hollowbody setup. The body is constructed from elegant 3-ply maple / poplar / maple, figured by Gibson Memphis to make the body top look incredibly luxurious. By employing these tonewoods in the body, they all contribute to the voice of the ES-335, allowing the soundwaves to resonate freely, travelling up through the F-style cutouts and projecting widely.


One of the best features of this ES-335 is the smooth mahogany neck which has been shaped to the 60's style Slim Taper profile. This neck profile promotes faster, more comfortable playability, while the cutaways in the body facilitate access to the upper registers of the neck. Gibson have also included the Historic truss rod with no tube as this has been proven to reinforce resonance and sustain.

Topping the neck is a slick 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with 12 inch radius, adorned with pearloid block inlays and cream binding to enable smooth transitions along the neck.


The ES-335 is fitted with humbucking pickups in the format of a Burstbucker 1 in the rhythm position and a Burstbucker 2 in the lead position. Alnico II magnets power both pickups, providing an impressive voice. Each Burstbucker feature historically-accurate unmatched coil windings to flawlessly reproduce that vintage PAF tone but with all the more clarity.

Controls for Lead and Rhythm volume and tone feature as standard, with a 3-way pickup toggle switch to achieve your desired sound.


The ES-335 is fitted with Milk Bottle Grover Rotomatic tuners with an accurate 18:01 gear ratio for precise tuning. The headstock also has the quintessential Gibson logo and crown for a neat finishing touch.

A reliable ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles and locking stop bar tailpiece enhances sustain and clarity.

A protective hi-gloss lacquer finish keeps the body in tact and prevents any damage, while a black pickguard also reinforces the body top. Gibson acknowledge how important it is to keep your guitar protected against the elements, thus a hardshell tan case is included along with a Gibson Memphis Certificate of Authenticity.
