Gibson ES335 Dot Figured Top Semi Hollow with Case Vintage Sunburst
The Gibson ES335 Dot Reissue is a semi-hollow instrument with massive tone and incredible vibe. Gibson invented the semi-hollowbody electric guitar in 1958, offering players the perfect combination of traditional archtop looks and powerful solidbody performance. Today’s ES-335 continues to provide the tone and the look that inspires musicians in blues, rock and jazz. The American Made Memphis Series DOT Reissue features a maple body, a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, two Gibson '57 Classic humbuckers and Grover tuners. Includes deluxe Gibson hardshell case. From Chuck Berry to Larry Carlton, Freddie King to Alvin Lee, the Gibson ES-335 has proven to be one of the most popular and adaptable guitars ever created. Touted as the wonder-thin body by Gibson when it launched in 1958, the ES-335 represented a ground-breaking innovation in electric guitars. With its solid maple center block and f-hole semi-hollowbody design, the ES-335 effectively delivers the singing sustain of a solidbody while preserving the tone and richness of a full hollowbody—with no feedback. For 2006, the Custom Shop has made several changes to more accurately reflect an original ES-335, including a period-correct center block resulting in ten to fifteen percent weight reduction, a slightly thinner body, and lower binding height.
