Semi-Hollow Body Design
A maple centre block and spruce bracing gives the body of the ES-335 a lightweight feel and fights feedback at high volume whilst retaining all the tonal qualities of the classic hollow-body guitars. Composed of 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple to ensure the classic big body tone is present and accounted for, the ES-335 gives you access to a wide variety of styles whether you prefer country chicken-pickin', big blues bends or outside jazz licks.
'C' is for Comfort
The double cutaway design is joined to a Single Piece Maple neck to give you fantastic upper fret access and the rounded 'C' profile ensures that chords and scale runs come with ease. The Maple neck of the ES-335 has been paired with the body tonewood to ensure warmth of tone and works with the Rosewood fretboard to give you a tone that's versatile enough to deal with an assortment of styles. The fretboard gives you a solid platform with 22 frets marked by Pearloid Dots to ensure you'll never lose your way, even on the darkest of stages.
Premier P90 Pickups
The P90 is widely regarded as Gibson's greatest ever pickup design. Originally produced in the 1940s it is technically a single-coil pickup, however there is less twang and more thickness, sitting somewhere between a traditional single coil and humbucker sound. Loaded with Alnico V magnets, these pickups give you strong mids, full bass and harmonically complex trebles. They can do mellow warmth just as well as brutal bite and have been played by guitarists from all genres, so whether you play jazz, blues, rockabilly or punk, the P90 has got you covered.
A reverse polarity bridge pickup gives hum cancellation alongside the Memphis Tone Circuit that allows you to maintain your treble bite even when you roll off the volume. Hand-wired with matched 550K potentiometers and orange drop capacitors the electronics of the ES-335 ensure a minimum of unwanted noise and maximum tone.
The Gibson ES-335 comes with an ABR-1 bridge and Plated Brass Saddles to ensure utmost intonation. Working in conjunction with the Die-cast Zinc Stopbar and Grover Rotomatics you get rock solid tuning stability no matter how hard you play. The Nickel plating of the hardware complement the finish for striking visual aesthetic and contemporary reliability that will uphold its integrity show after show.
The Gibson ES-335 Dot P-90 Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar marries old school aesthetic with modern furnishings to give you a big sound with a striking look. In constant production since 1958, the ES-335 is a world-renowned guitar that has been in the hands of many a rocker since inception, from BB King to Dave Grohl. This guitar is guaranteed to turn heads whether you're on stage, in the studio or in the rehearsal space.
