Overview

The ES-335 guitar is one of the most iconic Gibson instruments ever produced. Loved for its looks and it's versatility it's no wonder Gibson started producing a brother to the guitar model for bass players. This bass will satisfy demand for an ES style bass that has not been produced for over 40 years. It has been updated with a 34" scale and features some standby classics like a rosewood fingerboard, maple neck, traditional ES-335 body and 1961 style maple centerblock. The full size dual humbuckers compliment the long scale and semi hollow body for full yet well defined notes. So if you need a bass with classic looks and plenty of thump this is it. Includes case.

ES 335 Bass

Comments about Gibson ES-335 Bass:

I have not had this long enough to really get detailed but because of the lack of information on this bass I thought I would chime in. First the Cherry and Sunburst do come with cream binding on the neck. The GC photos are stock and do not represent the actual bass. The cons I'd prefer the short scale EB2 but it's a better feel than my 4003 neck. ALSO it arrived with the chrome hardware really clouded and 'OLD looking" The GC tech was able to clean and polish to my satisfaction; but come on Gibson this has to stop! A Custom Shop $2K instrument should not leave the factory like that. Hire a good quality control person!! The pros. The neck is straight and contrary to some blogs I have read it seems balanced to me. The pickups sound sweet and offer a wide variety of tones. I would recommend this bass.

Classic Bass

By paul jackson

Comments about Gibson ES-335 Bass:

Very nice bass. I normally play a Hofner and would have prefered the short scale EB2 neck but unlike other long scales this was pretty easy to adjust to. I have read some postings complaining about weight distribution but I am very happy with mine. The Sound is versatile, not quite as mellow as my hofner, but much more punchy when needed. Also do not be fooled by the stock photos on the GC site. The neck does have binding. I bought the sunburst and the binding is cream. CLASSIC!! In general the set up, and quality control was good on mine. The only complaint, and reason I give it a 4 out of 5, is that the pickups and machine heads had a very bad case of dull finish film or something on them that had to be polished out befor I left the store. I had ordered delivered to the store so this is the way it was shipped! Why can't Gibson spend a little more time on QC? These are after all fairly expensive instruments. Anyways I would highly recommend this guitar.
