Product Description

For players who want an exacting replica of one of the best ES-335’s ever made, look no further! The Warren Haynes Signature 1961 ES335 is crafted by Gibson Memphis to look, feel and sound like Warren’s own vintage ’61. His original ’61 is one of his go-to guitars in the studio and very well known to vintage collectors and Warren’s fans.

The neck shape is exactly like his original, which is in that transitional ’59-’60’s shape, very comfortable. Many ‘61s have a flat neck but this is more rounded. Gibson Memphis crafts this guitar with individually matched ‘Cathedral’ pattern plain Maple veneers with period correct ‘Mickey Mouse’ cutaways. Only 230 guitars will be available in North America so act fast to own this instant collector!

A Great ES 335
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
The Warren Haynes Gibson ES-335 is a fine guitar from the Gibson Custom Shop. This guitar is light, feels and looks great. This is my second ES-335 from the Gibson Custom Shop and I am extremely satisfied with the craftsmanship and quality of this guitar. Let me tell all of you that when the guitar arrived the action was high. HIGH! For the price, about $4000.00 I did not expect this. Now This was a guitar that I picked out of nine guitars, so it is not like they sent me the one with a problem. This is what I learned. There is not a 45 day return policy for items over $2000.00. Only a ten day. By the time I contacted AMS to exchange the guitar twelve days had passed. This had me upset, but I do not fault AMS for this, after all I picked the guitar myself. Well I put the guitar on my work bench and did a truss rod adjustment. Now the guitar has nice action and plays like a dream. Be aware that there is only a ten day return policy on items over $2000.00.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Fine craftsmanship. Great feel, light and just beautiful!
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Slim neck by Gibson standards. Great feel. Smooth.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Give all the tones you would expect from a 335. Played through a Victoria Soul Cactus sweet bluesy jazz. Through a Bassman punch, and bright. dial down the tone again Jazz and Blues all night.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Smooth with yellowed binding. Looking like a 1961 in 2014.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
$3,699.00 is a lot of money to a lot of us. But, if you want a quality instrument that will give you a lifetime of satisfaction. this guitar will deliver in spades!
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
As stated before, the action was super high. I was very disappointed in this, but after I performed a neck adjustment all is well. For $3,699.00 I should not have to have done this. I do not fault AMS. As a matter of fact my experience with AMS was great and I will buy from them again.
