One of the most coveted guitars ever made, the ES-335 has been used by many guitar legends across many genres since its introduction way back in 1958. As part of their endless quest to improve upon the ES-335, Gibson introduced the ES-336 in 2001, refining the dream combination of rich hollowbody tones with solidbody performance.

The ES-336 body shape and profile draws from Gibson's established semi-hollowbody design, delivering heavenly tones with superb depth and timbre - minus the unwanted feedback. The carved maple top is finished in a stunning candy apple red, and provides the sparkling articulation across the tonal spectrum. The single-piece mahogany back and sides provides the low-end punch that emphasises the energy of the body profile in fine style. The body size has been scaled-down to give the playability of a solidbody, making it much more comfortable to wield than a standard ES-335. The diamond F-holes accentuate the ES-336's ability to project sound, encouraging the luxurious tones to shine. The body top and back is completed with cream binding, adding a stylish contrast against the saturated candy apple red.

A solid and reliable single-piece mahogany neck is fitted to the body, giving a sturdy and reassuring support to glide along. Married to the neck is a delightfully sumptuous single-piece rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22-frets that are bound to create an effortlessly smooth playing-feel. The frets are adorned with pearloid dot inlays to guide your way in style, whilst the custom neck profile gives the neck a slender feel in the hand.

The Gibson Custom ES-336 is fitted with underwound Custom Bucker pickups, with one in the neck and one in the bridge position. Each one has an individual volume and tone pot, whilst a three-way pickup selector switch allows you to choose either pickup, or both at the same time to create your own special blend between the two. As the Custom Buckers are underwound, they generate a subtle bite when given a push, rather than an aggressive attack. If you prefer you tones to be subtle, smooth and creamy, then these pickups are perfect for you. The sustain and resonance generated by the body shape/tonewood combination, create a bountiful tonal palette to choose from.

The steadfast ABR bridge is paired with a stopbar tailpiece to create a seamless connection between the strings and body. Nickel tuners hold your tuning steadfast throughout each and every performance, allowing you to get on with playing as enthusiastically as you wish. Gibson’s engineers, to ensure that the setup for each one is ready to play as you receive it, check over every model meticulously.

The Gibson Custom ES-336 carved semi-hollowbody electric guitar, combines the richness and warmth of a hollowbody with the power and sustain of a solidbody. Thanks to the carefully placed centreblock, unwanted feedback is prevented from overpowering the sweet timbre of the body. The underwound Custom Buckers inject a little energy into the output but for the most part, preserve the unique character of the body profile/tonewood combo exquisitely. The slender, smaller body and neck profiles, along with the fingerboard binding, makes the ES-336 a much easier guitar to wield than an ES-335. If you’re looking for you first ES model but would prefer a model that offers the playability of a solidbody, then this is the model for you.
