The Gibson 2018 Limited Edition ES-335 Big Block Guitar in Classic White is a pristine model that tips its hat to the American car culture of the 1950s, taking inspiration from individual expression and style through customization. Inheriting features from several Gibson ES models, the "Big Block" is testament to the superb level of craftsmanship attained by the team at Gibson. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case, as well as a certificate of authenticity, Gibson strap, polish cloth, multi-tool and pick holder.

Sleek hybrid design

The 2018 Limited Edition ES-335 Big Block is bestowed with a 3-ply maple/poplar/maple body, which features slim taper horns and multi-ply binding borrowed from the ES-345. The chambered design allows the tonewoods to generate immense energy with depth and warmth infused in every note, whilst the weight-relieved centreblock tempers highs to prevent unwanted feedback when amplified. The body is reinforced using quartersawn Adirondack spruce, which allows the wood to resonate freely whilst retaining a solid feel. The eye-catching classic white finish is protected by a coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.

Sturdy and playable neck

Joined to the body is a quartersawn mahogany neck, which is shaped to the rounded "C" profile with rolled binding to maximise playing comfort. The generous 24.75-inch scale length promotes a warm character from the strings alongside a responsive feel. Married to the neck is a divine dark rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium jumbo frets with ES-355 mother of pearl full block inlays to guide your way. The 12-inch fingerboard radius ensures that technique such as string bends can be executed with effortless grace.

Memphis Historic Spec pickups

The 2018 Limited Edition Big Block ES-335 is equipped with a pair of Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) humbuckers, which produce a stunning array of tones to be performed with. Gibson have included their MTC Premiere wiring harness with hand-wired matched 550K potentiometers and orange drop capacitors, affording exceptionally smooth tonal attenuation. A pair of pickup independent volume controls and tone controls work in conjunction with a pickup toggle switch, giving you everything needed to find the one of your dreams.

Gig-ready hardware

The body is equipped with an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles paired with an aluminium stopbar tailpiece with locking studs for optimised stability. The headstock is home to Grover "Milk Bottle" Rotomatic tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout every performance. The 5-ply cream pickguard protects against unwanted scrapes whilst complementing the finish beautifully.
