Your home of purity. The Gibson ES-335 is meticulously crafted to produce the most natural of tones. Fuel your sound with the cherished heritage of rock 'n' roll. Semi-hollow bodies are renowned for their fuller projection than that of solid body guitars. The ES-335 possesses a warmth and clarity that others simply can’t compete with.

They offer a consistently well-balanced sonic, whilst still retaining the versatility that has been enjoyed from the ES tone for decades. Naturally, humbuckers specialise in producing the hot, rich tones of rock 'n' roll. And these are no exception with superb clarity in every playing style. From twinkling cleans to roaring drive - the ES-335's got you covered.
