Contrary to popular belief, electric guitars are an instrument that requires you to master two very different things. One is, of course, the playing technique, but the other is utilizing the hardware of that guitar and that of the amplifier in order to dial in a great tone.

Gibson created this guitar that journeyed beyond jazz to kick-start rock and roll. Its ingenious blend of hollow body warmth and complexity and solid body bite and sustain made it arguably the most versatile guitar available when Gibson introduced the model in 1958, and that design imperative hasn't changed today. Thus, the ES-335 has remained one of the most popular electric guitars of all time. This guitar isn’t just an exceptional guitar, but an instrument of inspiration.
This pleasing guitar is equipped with arched top, real f-holes, thin line semi-hollow body, solid maple center block to reduce feedback and enhance sustain, with even tonal balance, and a stronger Neck transition for greater strength, rounded symmetrical cutaways with unparalleled upper-fret access.
For the Historic models, Gibson Memphis has carefully analyzed what made certain guitars the best and then replicated those qualities—like the vintage-style pots that are now hand-matched to individual pickups, lightweight Center blocks, and a return to quartered Adirondack Spruce for the braces.
For players more accustomed to compact dimensions of a solid body electric, the ES-335 is fashioned to proportions closer to those of the legendary Gibson solid bodies such as the Les Paul and SG.
