The new 2018 Gibson ES-335 Big Block is a guitar born to break the rules. Inspired by the American car culture of the 1950's, this guitar captures the individuality that is expressed through the customization of the automobile. Not your traditional ES-335, the Big Block is appointed with unique features fetched from several legendary Gibson ES models. The 3-ply maple body is appointed with vintage slim taper horns and multi-ply ES-345 binding, while the dark rosewood fretboard is fitted with Gibson’s ES-355 mother of pearl full block inlays. The result is a guitar that commands your full attention.
