DESCRIPTION

Gibson Custom Shop '59 Reissue 1959 ES-335 VOS Vintage Natural

The ES-335 model is one of the most recognisable in Gibson’s iconic instrument range. Considered by many as the quintessential semi-hollow guitar, this Custom Shop 1959 VOS model recaptures the essence of early versions.

Sure to appeal to traditionalists, the Gibson Custom Shop 1959 ES-335 has many time-honoured features, including a vintage natural finish covered in a VOS nitrocellulose lacquer.

Construction

The ES-335 is regarded for its elegant semi-hollow body, which allows you to achieve bright and open sounds with plenty of natural acoustic-like volume. Formed from a 3-ply Maple/Poplar combination, these tonewoods give this guitar plenty of vibrancy and top-end definition.

To add some warmth, the ES-335’s body is paired with a Quartersawn Mahogany neck; topped with a Dark Rosewood fingerboard for a silky feel under the fingers. The neck adheres to Gibson’s rounded late ‘50s profile, feeling substantial in the hands for great thumb support.

Electronics & Hardware

A double-dose of medium-output MHS humbuckers give this instrument a balanced, warm tone. More responsive to your playing dynamics, these pickups lend themselves to expressive guitarists. Although semi-hollow guitars are more synonymous with jazz players, with distortion these humbuckers can sound fairly raunchy and bold; meaning they’re not just one trick ponies.

The Custom Shop 1959 ES-335 VOS comes installed with an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, providing a stable and solid feel under the picking hand. With its simple and accessible design making it easy to adjust your action and intonation, you can easily manipulate your setup on-the-fly. Fitted with nickel-plated brass saddles, their traditional-style design yields greater sustain and top-end sparkle.
