The ES-335 model is one of the most recognisable in Gibson’s iconic instrument range. Considered by many as the quintessential semi-hollow guitar, this particular model is adorned with a stunning Figured Maple top for that premium look. Typically, the ES-335 appeals to traditional players, but with its modern appointments; we think the USA ES-335 Figured will be seen in the hands of many current musicians too.

Construction

The ES-335 is regarded for its elegant semi-hollow body, which allows you to achieve bright and open sounds with plenty of natural acoustic-like volume. Formed from a 3-ply AAA Figured Maple/Poplar combination, these tonewoods give this guitar plenty of vibrancy and top-end definition.

To add some warmth, the ES-335's body is paired with a Quarter Sawn Mahogany neck; topped with a Rosewood fingerboard for a silky feel under the fingers.. The neck has a comfortable rounded “C” profile, feeling substantial in the hands without being too chunky or cumbersome. The ES-335 Figured's rolled binding also offers a smoother feel, with a sleek transition between the side of the neck and the fretboard.

Electronics & Hardware

A double-dose of medium-output MHS II humbucking pickups give this instrument a rounded, warm tone. More responsive to your playing dynamics, these pickups lend themselves to expressive players. Although semi-hollow guitars are more synonymous with clean jazz players, with distortion these humbuckers can sound fairly raunchy and bold; meaning they're not just one trick ponies by any means.

The Gibson USA ES-335 Figured comes installed with an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, providing a stable and solid feel under the picking hand. With its simple and accessible design making it easy to adjust your action and intonation, you can easily manipulate your setup on-the-fly. Fitted with Titanium saddles, these offer better sustain, intonation and longevity.
