The Gibson ES-235 Gloss in '34 Burst is an all-new design straight out of Memphis Tennessee. A hybrid of the classic Gibson ES-125 and legendary Les Paul, this semi-hollow body electric guitar matches classic aesthetic looks with modern fixtures to make a versatile guitar suitable for a variety of styles.
Built around a maple centre block paired with spruce bracing, the ES-235 gives you great big body sound with solid body sonic reliability, meaning whether you're on stage or in the practice room you can crank this guitar without fear of feedback. The body is constructed from 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple on the top and back, ensuring consistent tone that's versatile enough for a variety of styles, from jazz and blues to rock and country.
The single cutaway gives you unlimited access to the Single Piece Maple neck so blues licks and rock riffs abound with equal aplomb. With the ES-235 you'll find your hands glide along the comfortable Rounded 'C' neck profile and the rosewood fretboard is a joy to play on, well matched to the body to ensure the warmth of tone that Gibson is renowned for. With 22 frets you can hit all the notes and the pearloid dot inlays ensure you never lose your way, even on the darkest of stages.
A pair of Burstbucker Pro pickups allow for plenty of tonal scope and are thoroughly modern pickups with a vintage edge. With an Alnico V magnet, these humbucking pickups have clarity of sound alongside harmonic complexity to give you a fat, meaty tone that's similar the classic Gibson PAF pickups but with more bite and treble. The ES-235s pickups work alongside Gibson's Memphis Tone Circuit Plus to provide you with all the tonal tweaking that you need, allowing you to roll of your volume pot without losing any of your treble bite. The two volume and tone controls are hand-wired with 500K potentiometers and ceramic capacitors to ensure unwanted noise is kept at a minimum, even in high-gain scenarios.
The Gibson ES-235 has an ABR-1 bridge with plated brass saddles to ensure rock solid, customisable intonation. Working alongside the White Oval Button tuners you get a look that's vintage with a tuning stability that's thoroughly contemporary. The hardware is all nickel plated with four classic Black Top Hat control knobs with Silver Reflectors that match the stunning '34 Burst finish perfectly giving you a guitar that's bound to turn heads.
The Gibson ES-235 Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar is destined to become a classic of the Gibson lineup and gives players the necessary tools to conquer any musical genre. Stunning looks combined with state-of-the-art craftsmanship have resulted in this striking piece of equipment that ensures you're both seen and heard, whether on stage, in the studio or at the practice space.
