Hollow Body

Constructed from a hollow maple and poplar body the ES-335 produces a bright, tight and precise tone with a balanced low and crisp high response. Additionally the "F" shaped sound holes allow unique vibration circulation within the body creating a warm and resonant tone similar to larger acoustic guitars. Finished with an attractive AAA figured top which is complemented by the cherry lacquer, the ES-335 not only sounds great but looks extremely impressive.

Full Size Hollow Body

With a full size ES hollow body, the ES-335 produces a bright and rich tone with plenty of resonance and projection due to the “f” shaped sound holes. With a maple centre block, spruce braces and mahogany rum liner, the ES-335 provides an impressive sustain.

Historic Maple Neck & Truss Rod

Featuring a rounded "C" profile maple neck with re-designed dimensions, the Gibson ES-335 offers an effortless playability whilst the set-in construction ensures maximum vibration transferal for long sustain and increased resonance. With an added thickness to the headstock stem, the ES-335 delivers a stronger and more stable construction ideal for hard wearing playing. The headstock adjustable, historic truss rod provides superior adjustability due to the Teflon coating, larger diameter and robust Brass anchor.

Bone Nut & Rolled Neck Binding

The Gibson ES-335 electric guitar employs a carefully fitted bone nut to provide an improved tone and sustain over traditional plastic and tusq nuts as it improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone. Featuring a rosewood fingerboard finished with Pearloid block inlays, the ES-335 provides a smooth and quick playability whilst the rolled neck binding is rounded off to allow a comfortable fit to the contours of the hand.

Burstbucker Humbucking Pickups

A set of Burstbucker humbucking pickups designed to recreate the tone of the classic Gibson PAF pickups, gives the Gibson Memphis Satin ES-335 a rich vintage tone. The Burstbucker 1 in the bridge position provides a medium output with a well-rounded and creamy tone due to the alnico magnets and under-wound construction whilst the Burstbucker 2 in the neck position delivers a slightly hotter tone similar to '57 classic pickups.

Gibson Memphis Series

Every Gibson Memphis electric guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimises the fingerboard and nut for perfect action and intonation. Gibson's world-class luthiers took painstaking care with every detail of the ES-335, including fine touches like CTS pots, ceramic capacitors, nickel hardware, and a scrumptious nitrocellulose lacquer finish. These finishing touches add to the amazing tone and vibe of this incredible guitar, living up to the ES Series legacy.
