Description

The Jim James ES-335 semi-hollow from Gibson is the signature electric of the multi-talented vocalist, guitarist, producer and primary songwriter for My Morning Jacket. Jim James' Gibson ES-335 is as versatile and boundless as he is, with features including two calibrated T-Type pickups paired with dual volume and tone controls that are hand-wired with CTS potentiometers. The Jim James ES-335 is constructed with a mahogany SlimTaper neck, an Indian rosewood fretboard, Graph Tech nut, 22 medium jumbo frets and Kluson Waffleback tuners. These are paired with a lightweight aluminum ABR-1 bridge and stop bar tailpiece, anchored by steel thumb-wheels and tailpiece studs to keep everything solidly in tune. The Jim James ES-335 also has the Jim James logo on the truss rod cover and an owl decal on the back of the headstock. A custom Jim James owl decal hardshell case is also included for portable protection between gigs.
