Chambered Semi-Hollow Body Design
A thermally engineered chambered maple centre block and thermally engineered quarter-sawn Adirondack 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 AAA Figured 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 Quarter-Sawn Mahogany neck to give you fantastic upper fret access and the rounded 'C' profile with Rolled Binding 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 Dark 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 Small Blocks to ensure you'll never lose your way, even on the darkest of stages.
