The Gibson ES-335 DOT Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar in Vintage Ebony is one of the cornerstones of Gibson's lineup for 2020. Ever since its first appearance way back is 1958, the Gibson ES-335 has been the standard for semi-hollow electric guitars, combining stunning looks with fantastic tone and incredible playability. From Dave Grohl to Chuck Berry to Eric Clapton the ES-335 has graced the hands of many a legendary guitarist, appearing on countless hit records and stages all over the world.
The ES-335 has a 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple body construction to ensure bright resonance and a crisp, vintage tone. The classic and ever-present 'F-holes' allow the guitar to sing, giving an incredibly natural sound. The composition of the ES style body means that you gain access to a wide variety of musical styles, from country chicken-pickin' and big blues bends to outside jazz licks and rock riffs.
'C' is for Comfort
The rounded 'C' profile of the neck ensures that chords and scale runs come with ease. The Mahogany 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. A Rosewood fretboard gives you a smooth and solid platform to play on and 22 frets marked by Acrylic Dots ensure you'll never lose your way, even on the darkest of stages.
Calibrated T-Type Pickups
New for 2020, Gibson's Calibrated T-Type humbucking pickups deliver rip-roaring guitar tone that will sound at home in any genre of music. Dig in with your pick and you'll find some great top-end bite that works great with gain, dial it down and you've got the classic smooth and soothing vintage response that embodies classic hollow body tone. The pickups are paired with a hand-wired 500K potentiometers and orange drop capacitors, resulting in the same versatile tone craved by players for over 60 years.
