Epiphone

Description

The exclusive Epiphone ES-335 Traditional Pro is an affordable take on a classic Gibson. It offers powerful tones with a pair of Alnico Classic Pro pickups. The semi-hollowbody design is lightweight; a double cutaway makes it easy to hit all of the high notes. This Epiphone is ideal for players who want vintage style with a more accessible price tag.

Epiphone ES-335 Trad Pro Main Features

  • 5-ply maple body
  • Mahogany neck with rounded C profile, Indian laurel fretboard
  • Dual Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers, coil split, 3-way switch
  • LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, Epiphone Deluxe tuners

Semi-Hollow Construction

The 5-ply maple body has a solid maple tone block running through the center, keeping feedback at bay. Semi-hollow construction makes it easy to sling this guitar on the shoulders—it's lightweight and exceedingly comfortable

Mahogany Neck

The mahogany neck has a rounded C shape, a thinner profile than the first ES-335 models from the ’50s. It's a faster feel, too. Epiphone uses Indian laurel for the fretboard, retaining the density and durability of rosewood. The "open book" headstock design looks more Gibson than ever before, but still gives this Epiphone its own identity.

High-Output Humbuckers

The Trad Pro is loaded with a pair of Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers. Alnico V magnets provide more output, making this ES-335 fit into more modern contexts. Each coil of the pickup has a matched number of windings, producing a more focused sound with clear highs, tight lows and plenty of bite. Push/pull knobs split the humbuckers for single-coil sounds.

Fail-Safe Hardware

The Epiphone ES-335 Traditional Pro updates the traditional tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece with its LockTone system. This prevents both from falling off during string changes, while still maintaining a period-correct look. Deluxe tuners keep up the vintage vibe.

Other specs include single-ply body and fretboard binding, Graph Tech nut and top hat knobs. A hardshell case or EpiLite gig bag is available separately.
