The original ES335 was a breakthrough guitar design when it was introduced in 1958 with its iconic archtop profile and violin inspired f-holes. The Epiphone ES335 Pro Electric Guitar brings this vintage workhorse into the future with Epiphone's Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers and coil-tapping.  The ES335 is light, loud  and brings a whole new sound to the classic archtop Jazz guitar.

The Birth of a Rock and Roll Legend
The original ES335 launched in 1958 and kicked off an incredible era for the legendary Gibson/Epiphone factory located in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Along with now-classic Epiphone semi-hollowbody designs like the Epiphone Riviera and the Epiphone Sheraton, the ES335 quickly gained a following among guitar players of all ages. Though perhaps the original designers of the ES335 imagined it might be preferred most by jazz players, the ES335 was quickly embraced by rock, country, and rhythm and blues guitarists in the U.S. and the United Kingdom. The original ES335 has the distinction of inspiring not only artists from the early rock and roll era but the '60s blues revival, new wave, Britpop and Americana as well. The few vintage models that have survived are high-price tag collectibles that rarely get out of a glass case. Now, the Epiphone Ltd. Ed. ES335 PRO goes one better than vintage by adding modern features along with Epiphone's superb build quality to go with that classic ES335 sound.

The Epiphone ES335 Pro Electric Guitar is protected by Epiphone's famous Lifetime Limited Warranty featuring Gibson 24/7/365 Customer Service which guarantees the ES335 PRO from defects in materials or workmanship.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Overall this is a great buy for the money! As usual, the guitar came with strings that had to be replaced immediately. They were already showing signs of wear out of the box. I couldn't get it tuned up so I played it for a month or two and had a professional set up done. Now it's awesome!
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Quality is good, finish is excellent. Set up was lousy out of the box. As I figured it would be. Plays great for Rock, Blues, and Jazz.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Neck is great. I'm not a shredder so it works perfectly for me. Split coils are a nice feature. Controls are a little weird in that even with the 3 way toggle set on either the bridge or neck pick up, you have to have the volume on both turned up. They can't be on zero, but just a tweak gets it fired up.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Overall tone is warm. Pick ups are fair, tone controls aren't very extreme between zero and ten. I would have thought there would have been a greater distinction.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish looks good. No drips or missed areas.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Yes I got what I expected, and maybe even a bit more than expected.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Not good, needed a set up. It would not tune up correctly even with my strobe tuner. After I tuned it up, first position D chord sounded way out of whack. Sounds great now after having it professionally set up.
