  • Gibson ES335

    As reviewed by Tim Rose on 7/1/2010

    I have dreamed of owning a Gibson guitar since 1964.I was finally able to afford one that I wanted. The 335 figured top is not only stunningly beautiful but is a dream to play. The separation of tone between the pickups gives an infinite variety of tones. I have just started to study Jazz and the bass of this guitar sings almost as smoothly as the treble. I love the neck profile which enhances playability like no other guitar that I have owned. Regardless of the style from smooth Jazz to rocking surf, this guitar meets the challange

  • I Love My 335

    As reviewed by Don Crisafulli on 9/5/2010

    A few decades or so ago, I saw Larry Carlton and Lee Ritenour within about a month of one another. At that point, I thought, "It won't be today, tomorrow, or next week, but one of these days, I WILL own a 335." Well, that came to pass in the late spring of 1988 after I received a beaucoup tax refund while coming to and mourning the realization that my damaged/jerry-rigged SG Custom had reached the end of the line. That was and remains the best instrument-purchase decision that I've ever made. My (natural/"blonde") 335 does it all: blues, R&B and soul, rock, "elevator" music, whatever; all that and with the finish mellowing and the wood grains becoming more pronounced after 20+ years, it's pretty, too. If someone was to ask me what instrument to acquire if he or she could have just one electric guitar with cost being little or no object, I'd reply, "A Gibson ES-335," before he or she was able to finish asking the question.

  • The Tone Makes it Worth the Price

    As reviewed by david richardson on 4/1/2013

    As a player for over 40 years, I decided to get a really high quality guitar. Used to be professional, now play mostly at church. I love the sounds the humbuckers produce, especially like using the neck pickup alone.After reordering the first one( the top was pretty plain --and it was supposed to be the figured top) the second one is gorgeous, in Cherry Red. Thanks to Morgan for helping me get this. I didn't know you could pick out your guitar on high end stuff on the platinum system at Guitar Center. I wanted the Grover tuners and it stays in tune great. I don't really like the tulip tuners that comes on some models. Have them on my Les Paul special and its always out of tune. The finish is really beautiful and I have found no flaws anywhere on the guitar. The custom case is nice, but its an awfully snug fit to get it in. Don't care for the shroud in the case that lays on the guitar. It's kind of a hassle., but that's not a big deal.I play Chet Atkins style and I wanted a semi-hollow but not a great big Gretcsh, this 335 fits the bill perfectly. Not to heavy and not too big, it's very comfortable. If you are able to afford one at all, even if you have to stretch a bit, it will be worth it, and it will still retain it's value after several years. GO AHEAD AND TAKE THE PLUNGE! My only regret was waiting so long.Really! Thanks Wife!
