Gibson 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue Electric Guitar
Not quite a solid body guitar and not quite a hollow body either, Gibson’s ES-335 is the world’s first commercial thin line archtop semi-acoustic electric guitar. A solid maple wood block runs through the guitar’s center, and f-holes top hollow side wings of the axe, giving it the capacity to generate incredible sustain and the type of warmth that can only be attained via a hollowbody. The Dot Reissue takes all that was great about the original and adds in some newer innovations to bring the classic rock staple into the modern era.
This guitar’s Custom Bucker pickups have a real vintage bite to them, while the one-piece rosewood fingerboard provides an extremely smooth and easy playing experience, you’ll be maneuvering up and down the guitar’s 22 medium jumbo frets in no time. A fixed Tune-o-matic bridge gives the ES-335 a strong and resonant sustain. And a hardshell case protects this guitar so that you’ll never have to worry about taking it out of your home and bringing it onstage.
