The ES-335 has been a legendary tone machine since 1958. Our 2016 features a tubeless Historic truss rod, PAF-style Burstbucker 1 & 2 pickups, and redesigned neck shape for increased strength and enhanced playing comfort.
Semi-acoustic construction: Since 1958 the “semi” has proved itself richly toneful while retaining excellent sustain and good feedback reduction
Small-block elegance: Capturing the desirable look of the ES-335 of the early to mid ’60s
Redesigned neck: By redesigning the dimensions, Gibson Memphis has improved the strength and playability of the new ES-335’s necks
Historic truss rod: Our historic truss rod has no tube, a proven known to enhance the guitar’s resonance and sustain
Burstbucker pickups: Burstbucker 1 & 2 pickups are made in the image of the hallowed PAF humbucker, with a little extra power in the bridge position
Titanium saddles: Durable titanium bridge saddles enhance sustain, presence and clarity
Locking stopbar tailpiece: A locking stopbar tailpiece improves vibrational transfer to maximize sustain
High-gloss nitro finish: Gibson Memphis has mixed more vintage-correct finish colors, all hand buffed to a high sheen
