Overview

First introduced in the late '50s, the ES series became an instant rock classic, bringing the feel and look of an archtop to a generation of players who had grown up playing solid body guitars like the Les Paul. The ES-335, the first in the ES series, was an instant success. Now Epiphone introduces the ES-335 PRO - an instrument with its roots firmly planted in the classic era when Epiphone's Kalamazoo factory was producing rock's most legendary instruments.

Featuring an ES-style body with Alnico Classic PRO humbucker pickups, the new ES-335 PRO semi-hollowbody from Epiphone turns back the clock while breaking new ground in sound and style. Other classic features include a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for incredible sustain, Wilkinson vintage-style tuning machines, and a rosewood fretboard adorned with small block inlay. Case sold separately.

Features
  • Arched maple top and back
  • 24.75" Scale set-in mahogany neck
  • Rosewood fretboard with small block inlay
  • 22 Medium jumbo frets
  • Alnico Classic Pro neck humbucker with coil-split
  • Alnico Classic Pro Plus bridge humbucker with coil-split
  • LockTone tune-o-matic bridge
  • LockTone stopbar tailpiece
  • Wilkinson vintage-style tuners

Received my beautiful ES-335 in Natural finish from Musiciansfriend.com in an amazing fast shipping time. Was packaged beautifully. But the true beauty was the guitar I was lucky enough to pull out of the box! This thing just simply inspires you to play with how amazing it looks. The Natural finish is just a pleasure to look at at with its high gloss finish, yet still allowing all the beautilfull wood grain lines and swirls to peer through. The fret board was beautiful with the block inlays and this is one guitar where I can say the back of the guitar is actually just as beautiful as the front. The neck mohagany wood grain is just so warm and beautiful. But the amazing this is this baby sounds as great as it looks!

The alnico pro pups just give that great mellow blues/jazz tone but can also deliver a great growl for classic rock. The coil tap is a wonderful bonus to play with that allows you to get even more sounds out of this wonderful instrument. I have run this guitar for hours clean through my fender amp and with effects pedals and sounds amazing either way.But the best past of this guitar for me is the easy to play neck. The slim taper D design just fits my hand like a glove! The guitar has some size to it being a 335 but one expects that, and I love it. Tuners look vintage and are functional all at the same time.

The quality on the finish was amazing as well. I feel truly fortunate to have gotten such a great guitar. This one will be in my collection till I am long gone from this earth. If your on the fence and always wanted a 335 like myself, don't hesitate this wonderful limited edition offering from Epiphone delivers in EVERY way! Vintage tone, looks, playability. Get one and enjoy!

After waiting @ 4- 5 weeks (back ordered) I received the FIRST one. It looked nice, played well and I was happy. Although, the first night on a gig (under lights) I noticed that the neck had a fine crack in it next to the headstock. Therefore, (having waited so long for the FIRST guitar) and because it was "in stock" on GC's website, I immediately ordered a replacement guitar. After a few days of not getting a order confirmation from GC I tried contacting GC via live chat. I was repeatedly told that it would "ship today" (I was told this 2-3 times in a 2-3 day period). So, I called the website# and again was told that "it would ship today". Well, it didn't. Apparently the warehouse didn't have any in stock so it was shipped out of a store somewhere. I had it shipped to my local GC (to be sure it was OK and to return the FIRST defective guitar). The GC rep opened the box and the neck was completely broken off of the SECOND guitar. We where all blown away EXCEPT another guy that worked at GC. He said that he's seen several (3-4) of this same model with the same neck issue. Sounds like an Epiphone design issue. SO, after all of this pain, the GC service manager (Aaron) was VERY COOL and because of all the hassle he gave me a good deal on a Dot 335 that he had in stock. I played it before the deal was made and it plays and sounds MUCH better than the ES 335 Limited Edition Pro. Moral of this story is "don't waste your dough on the Pro.

    Great feeling, great sounding guitar at an amazingly low price. Set up beautifully. It isn't my Gibson ES-335 (finish, electronics, frets, tuners, pickups etc.) but it is wonderfully playable and I wouldn't hesitate to gig with it, particularly when I'm scared of dinging up a guitar or having one stolen!

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition ES-335 PRO Electric Guitar:

    So I've been playing this guitar for a week now and have to say it's one of my favorites. it plays really good, sounds amazing and looks beautiful. It definitely has that 335 sound that I've been looking for. the finish is great and stays in tune. I can honestly say it has exceeded my expectations. The only thing that I didn't like it's the switch which you can clearly tell is not quality. I'll be replacing it with a switchcraft so it's all good. I highly recommend this guitar to any 335 fans that don't want to spend 3000+ on a Gibson.

        Guitar plays and sounds better than I expected. Nice neck, no fret buzz, pickups sound good and tone/volume are smooth. I am very satisfied with the way the guitar plays and feels. Glad I made the purchase. Only needed to lower the action and adjust the intonation on a couple of strings. The build quality and finish are nice and I expect the guitar to give many years of good service.

        To get a five rating I would like a little better tuning machines but this is just a minor complaint as I have no intention of changing them.

        Guitar Center business model sucks

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition ES-335 PRO Electric Guitar:

        Ordered online. The guitar was a floor model with no paperwork from the manufacturer. Got the guitar home and one of the tone knobs was broken. Had to travel 90 miles to exchange it for another floor model. Normal businesses that sell floor models do so by; 1) telling the customer that is what they are getting and 2) discounting the merchandise. Neither was done in this case. Not happy about that.

          Been playing for over a year. Feels and sounds great -- what a deal!! Lucky to have gotten the Cherry - Limited Edition at such a good price! Almost got the es339 pro but I like this size better. It's not immaculate, bridgepiece has a few scuffs and isn't super shiny. And the f-hole finishing could be better. But no cracks, everything works and looks great!
          Highly recommend Epiphone for beginners/novice players. Good quality at an affordable price!

                This is a very very nice guitar, get one if you can. I have the Gibson ES-335 Dot also. The Epiphone is almost identical to the Gibson with the Gibson pick ups being slightly hotter in output and with perhaps a bit more depth, but it is very subtle. It feels very similar to the Gibson,but the neck is a bit shallower on the Epiphone. Absolutely the Gibson is the better guitar out of the two, but the Epiphone is pretty close to it. So close that its not worth paying 7 times as much for a Gibson, this is as near as you can get in sound and feel. The workmanship on the Epiphone is actually better than the Gibson. Well worth getting the Epiphone hard case for it. This is a guitar you will feel very happy to own and gig with and it has the big ES-335 tone. I got mine in ice tea, looks stunning with the block inlays and aged looking tuners.

                Let's face it--this is not a $3000 Gibson 335, but this is also is in no way a bad guitar. This is a great, leas expensive guitar that feels and sounds great. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and craftsmanship. The Cherry finish is superb, frets were finished nicely (no sharp edges) and overall guitar is very nice. The setup needed very minor tweaking to my liking. The frets were dull and scratchy and needed polished, but that was no big deal. I always change stock strings. I polished the frets, oiled the fretboard, added some Ernie Ball 10-46's and now have a great guitar with great setup. The tone is so nice! Honestly, you can only hear very minor difference between this Epi 335 and its Gibson counterpart. If you're considering the Epiphone 335, do it. I have zero regrets and didn't have to sell a kidney to add another great guitar to my collection.
