Overview

History speaks for itself. Right from its introduction in 1958 as the world's first semi-hollowbody electric guitar, the Gibson Custom ES-335 has been a mainstay of players eager to balance the gorgeous, round, mellow tones perfect for jazz and blues with the edge and sustain of a full-blooded solidbody.

The Gibson Custom Shop has unveiled the most accurate re-creation of the 1959 ES-335 ever produced. This ES-335 VOS (Vintage Original Spec) edition retains its classic proportions: 16-1/2" wide, 20" long, and 1-3/4" deep. The neck is one-piece mahogany beneath a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid inlays and a single-ply binding. Additionally, the guitar has a single-ply binding on the top and back.

All hardware is nickel, and there's a classic ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge with a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece. Neck scale is 24-3/4" with a 1-11/16" nut width. Satin finish models have vintage -style and tulip-shaped tuners, while figured and plain tops come with Grover kidney-shaped tuners. All Custom Shop ES-335s have powerful '57 Classic humbucking pickups, 2 volume pots, t2 tone pots, and a 3-way pickup selector switch. They are strung with Gibson Brite Wire .010 strings and come safely nestled in a black levant case.

All Gibson Custom VOS guitars use a proprietary process for creating a beautiful nitrocellulose lacquer finish that includes unique steps for staining, wet-sanding, and hand-rubbing; imparting the look of a well cared-for 40-year-old instrument. The result is a remarkable patina that will delight even the most discriminating enthusiast.
