The Gibson ES335 Dot Semi Hollow Electric Guitar has massive tone and incredible vibe.
Gibson invented the semi hollowbody electric guitar in 1958, offering players the perfect combination of traditional archtop looks and powerful solidbody performance. Today’s ES335 continues to provide the tone and the look that inspires musicians in blues, rock and jazz. The American Made Memphis Series DOT Reissue features a maple body, a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, two Gibson 1957 Classic humbuckers and Grover tuners.
From Chuck Berry to Larry Carlton, Freddie King to Alvin Lee, the Gibson ES335 has proven to be one of the most popular and adaptable guitars ever created. Touted as the wonder thin body by Gibson when it launched in 1958, the ES335 represented a ground breaking innovation in electric guitars. With its solid maple center block and f hole semi hollowbody design, the ES335 effectively delivers the singing sustain of a solidbody while preserving the tone and richness of a full hollowbody, with no feedback.
The Custom Shop has made several changes to more accurately reflect an original ES335, including a period correct center block resulting in ten to fifteen percent weight reduction, a slightly thinner body, and lower binding height.Gibson ES335 Dot Figured Top Semi Hollow Electric Guitar wCase
