The Gibson ES-335 continues to set the standard of Thinline archtops and this succulent 2020 Satin model completely raises the game. This retro rocker comes in a stunning Satin Cherry finish and is the ideal guitar for those seeking a traditional bluesy edge to their sound.
The ES-335 Satin owes its great tonal warmth and sustain to its 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple top and back and a solid Maple centre block that helps to eliminate feedback. Follow the ergonomic contour of the body and you will reach an ultra-smooth and comfortable ”C”-profile premium Mahogany neck. A dot-inlaid Rosewood fingerboard is a joy to play - you’ll never want to put this guitar down. Furthermore, to enhance playability Gibson have spared no expense and treated this ES-335 Satins frets to a high-end makeover. The Plek Pro process assesses and levels all of the frets individually, resulting in high-performance, pinpoint-accurate smoothness.
The Gibson ES-335 Satin comes kitted out with calibrated T-Type humbucking pickups, each with their own volume and tone controls that give you a great deal of versatility when it comes to defining your desired sound. Selecting the neck pickup offers you jazzy and bluesy sounds and flicking to the bridge accesses chiming clean or dirty, gritty overdrive. These great pickups are supported by Gibson’s hand-wired control assembly and when cranked out of a tube amp, they really hit their full potential.
