Gibson USA ES-335 Figured Electric Guitar - Sixties Cherry
The USA ES-335 Figured model is a beautiful example of Gibson’s dedication to their craft. This exquisite semi-hollow guitar offers a dynamic range of tone and its retro charm and style will captivate your audience. Crafted from a hybrid 3-ply combo of Maple and Poplar topped with a beautiful AAA figured Maple top, its body is exquisitely shaped and honed to produce big, open tones with a bright top end. A thermally engineered Maple centre-block and thermally engineered quarter-sawn Adirondack Spruce bracing make this guitar much lighter than the regular ES models and enhance its tonal range.
A quarter-sawn Mahogany neck adds to the overall warmth of the tonewood mix and a Rosewood fingerboard provides a smooth and slinky playing feel. This guitar feels fantastic in-hand thanks to the neck's “C” profile and its rounded edges and rolled binding makes for silky-smooth slides up and down the fretboard.
This Gibson ES-335 Figured owes its warm, vibrant tone to two highly-responsive medium-output T-Type humbucking pickups and also features a hand-wired control assembly with orange drop capacitors, an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, aluminium stop bar tailpiece anchored with steel thumb-wheels and studs, Vintage Deluxe tuning machines with Keystone Buttons, single-ply cream binding, a hardshell case and a Gibson accessory kit.
