Product Description

While there are many guitars that make a memorable first impression, the Gibson ES-335 truly takes the cake in that department! After all, this instrument has been a showstopper ever since its release in 1958. From Chuck Berry’s groundbreaking performances of ‘Johnny B. Goode’ to the stylings of Eric Clapton, Eric Johnson, Roy Orbison, and countless other guitar legends - the ES-335 has contributed to numerous pioneering works of music and has easily earned its place in the pantheon of guitar history.

This semi-hollowbody guitar takes the best characteristics of Gibson’s earlier hollowbody electrics and expands the possibilities. The result? Supreme flexibility and increased output potential - all while eliminating the hum and feedback that occasionally creeps up in the hollowbody models at louder volumes. This is what makes this guitar the instrument of choice for players of rock, blues, country, alternative, and various types of jazz, progressive, and fusion. More recently, artists have taken the Gibson ES-335 to new places, introducing the instrument to metal, synthpop, EDM, and numerous other genres.

Gibson ES-335 Figured Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features
  • Iconic ES-335 design, painstakingly crafted and built to exacting specifications
  • Vibrant Figured Maple Top and Figured Maple Back
  • Mother-of-Pearl Full Block Inlay on a Dark Rosewood Fingerboard
  • MHS (Memphis Historic Spec) Humbucking Pickups
  • MTC Premiere control assembly with Orange Drop capacitors and 550K matched pots
  • Eye-catching finishes
The Gibson ES-335 Figured Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar is a true work of art. The big, bold size. The smooth body contours. The beautiful wood grain of the figured Maple top and back. The distinct symmetrical shape, complete with its historic F-holes. And that’s just the visuals. Plug it in, dive right into your music, and you’ll be in awe of the resulting sound!

When you’re building a legend, you have to remain true-to-form, all way down to the smallest details. The ES-335 Figured utilizes hand-selected woods, a resonant 3-ply Figured Maple/Poplar/Maple body construction is anchored with a solid Maple center block. From a sonic standpoint, maple is a wood known for its strong sustain and bright tonal color. It is also prized for its durability, density, and tight wood grain – and that means a perfect timbre is the result in the hands of Gibson luthiers. An exacting blend of nitrocellulose lacquer has been evenly applied, bringing out the best in these visually stunning finishes.

A pair of MHS Humbucker Pickups (the MHS is short for Memphis Historic Spec) anchor the Gibson Figured ES-335, providing the guitar with a specially formulated tone ideally suited for the Gibson semi-hollow lineup of electrics. Switch up the combinations between the neck and bridge pickups and you’ll be treated to a wonderful collection of tasty humbucking tones!

When you’re dealing with an instrument of this caliber, the hardware needs to address very specific and very important responsibilities, and that starts with pure performance stability. The artisans at Gibson have it covered - the Figured ES-335 Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar comes equipped with sturdy Grover ‘Milk Bottle’ Rotomatic Tuners and an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles, keeping the guitar’s tonal foundation anchored and ready. The nickel finish of both the hardware and pickups, along with the accompanying 5-ply pickguard, add a striking visual accent when paired with the guitar’s vibrant body finish.

The Gibson Figured ES-335 Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar includes a Gibson hardshell case.

Awesome Guitar

Product Review

Looks & sounds beautiful, very resonant, the neck shape is very comfortable even for small hands its just a little bigger than the 60s Slim T. , light but very tone full. Been looking for this one for almost 25 years (since I went to a Clapton’s Concert on his tour “From the Cradle” and I saw him playing a ES-335). I bought a CS- 336 FT first thinking a smaller guitar was better for me, and it sounds great too, similar but not the same, also being smaller the access to the upper fretboard registers through the access space next to the lower “mouse ear” ~ is more restricted than on the ES- 335 better access. Awesome guitar, definitely a keeper and recommended to almost any style of Music. Now about attention to details I think Gibson needs to do a better job, the pick guard wasn’t completely finish I had to remove a few shaving that they left a guess when they “finished” the pick guard and missed the quality ”check”. Also the fretboard had little wood dust like they didn’t clean it and finish it well, this is not the first time this happened to me with a Gibson ( that they miss details or miss align a tuner) nothing that I can’t fix and finish myself. I never had any problems with PRS or Fender of similar value that I have bought, Gibson needs to do a better job. Other than that there’s not a single mark or scratch anywhere and the truss rod and other adjustments are right on (0.008”). And I want to express my appreciation and thanks to all the people at AMS that helped me. Best Regards. R.S.V

Guitar Itself is Great, Disappointed with Everything Else

Product Review

Not enough space provided for my complete review, so I'll just get to the bottom line: - Sweet guitar. - Arrived a day after the advertised delivery date. - NO COA!! ..or other items. Case was EMPTY except for the guitar. - Without a COA, a Memphis Shop 335 is practically worthless. Contacted Gibson, they said I provided the needed information, but nothing further has been received from them. - Considering the 45-day return policy if Gibson doesn't resolve my COA issue.
