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.
