The Gibson 2019 ES-235 Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar in Ebony is a beautiful model that borrows from the past and looks towards the future. Destined to become a classic in its own right, the ES-235 provides the perfect combination of playability and power. Whether you're adding to your collection or buying your first Gibson, the ES-235 is a stand out that any guitarist would be proud to own. Each model is supplied with a Gibson soft case and accessory kit to keep yours in pristine condition.
Elegant semi-hollowbody design
It is clear from its appearance that the ES-235 inherits elements of its design from the classic ES hollowbody models as well as the timeless Les Paul. The 3-ply maple/poplar/maple semi-hollowbody design generates an impressive amount of power, whilst a carefully applied maple centreblock prevents unwanted frequencies from overpowering the overall tone at high volume levels. Thanks to the spruce bracing, the soundboard - complete with elegant f-holes - projects a mighty output.
Comfortable maple neck
Fitted to the body is a sleek single-piece maple neck, which is shaped to the substantial yet manageable rounded "C" profile. Married to the neck is a B-grade rosewood fingerboard, which provides an elegant touch as you sail across the pearloid dot adorned frets. The generous 24.75-inch scale length pairs well with the 12-inch fingerboard radius to uphold a consistency feel whilst responding beautifully to string bends and swift licks.
To guarantee that the rich tonal character of the ES-235 is delivered in all its glory, Gibson have employed a pair of Burstbucker pickups to carry out the task. The dense mid-range character springs forth with the utmost clarity with both pickups responding faithfully to the subtle nuances of your playing style. Memphis Tone Circuit design includes hand-wired electronics with 500K pots and Orange Drop capacitors for the smoothest possible attenuation at any volume level. Whether you're practising at home or tearing it up on the stadium stage, the ES-235 is equipped to do it all.
The Gibson 2019 ES-235 Semi-hollowbody electric guitar is built to take anything you can throw its way. The body is home to an ever-reliable ABR-1 tune-O-matic bridge with plated brass saddles and a die cast zinc stopbar tailpiece to optimise intonation and sustain. The white oval button tuning machines maintain tuning integrity throughout the most demanding of performances so that you can rock out in style.
