Iconic ES-335 design
The ES-335 has long been a favourite amongst guitarists across every genre due to its exceptional tonal character. The energy produce by the large chambered body shape is the stuff of legend, creating sumptuous warmth and resounding sustain. To temper feedback at high volumes, Gibson have included a thermally engineered chambered maple centreblock to uphold tonal consistency. The body is built using 3-ply AAA figured maple/poplar/maple throughout, with thermally engineered quartersawn Adirondack spruce bracing for support. The tonewoods are endowed with the confidence to resonate unimpeded without running the risk of bending or warping over time.
The 2019 ES-335 figured model is finished in an eye-catching blueberry burst, which allows the grain of the figured top to shine through beautifully. Single-ply cream binding adds an elegant touch alongside the stylish f-holes and contrasting black pickguard. A protective coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer allows the finish to age gracefully over time.
Sturdy yet supple neck
Joined to the body is a quartersawn mahogany neck, which is shaped to the rounded "C" profile to promote a fast-playing feel. The rolled binding ensures that your hand to seamlessly transition along the entire length of the neck, which extends along a 24.75-inch scale that emphasises the warmth infused in every note. Paired with the neck is a glorious dark rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are lavished with pearloid small block position inlays to provide an understated decorative touch. The 12-inch fingerboard radius encourages the execution of elaborate technique with a reassuringly consistent feel provided across the neck.
Memphis Historic Spec pickups
The 2019 ES-335 Figured is equipped with a pair of Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers, which are designed with meticulous attention to detail to translate the ES-335's balanced timbre with the utmost fidelity. From rich and resounding mid to low-end energy through a punchy midrange to a searing high-end output, these pickups deliver a highly versatile tonal palette. The Gibson team have included a hand-wired MTC Premiere control assembly with Orange Drop capacitors and 550K matched pots to offer immaculate volume and tone adjustment, affording total mastery over tone control.
The 2019 ES-335 figured is equipped with an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles to increase clarity, definition and sustain. The aluminium tailpiece with locking studs reinforces the bridge's consistency, whilst the Grover "Milk Bottle" Rotomatic tuners uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout the most energetic of performances.
