Gibson ES-335 is one of a kind

Handcrafted with a thermally engineered maple center block and quartersawn Adirondack spruce bracing, guitarists will be impressed by the lightweight feel and extended tonal range of this amazing guitar. Gibson’s Calibrated T-Type humbucking pickups are paired with the company’s handwired control assembly with Orange Drop capacitors. The result is the immensely versatile Gibson ES tone that guitarists have craved for over six decades — on steroids. Precise intonation and tuning stability are provided by Vintage Deluxe tuners with Keystone buttons, paired with a lightweight aluminum ABR-1 bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, anchored by steel thumbwheels and tailpiece studs.
Legendary tone from T-Type humbuckers
Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the Gibson ES-335 Figured into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of calibrated T-Type humbucking pickups, each with its own volume and tone controls, you’ll be able to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock tones. The Gibson ES-335’s neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the bridge position, and you’ll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean.
