Gibson 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue Electric Guitar
When Gibson first released the ES-335 in 1959, players were instantly taken with the way that the instrument provided incredible sustain and warmth, thanks in no small part to the f-holes on the hollow side wings of the guitar, effectively bringing a sound to the table typically reserved only for hollow body guitars. With their reissue, Gibson has maintained this great feature along with other traits that have earned the axe a special place in the hearts of blues players over the last 50 years, including Eric Clapton.
Custom bucker pickups give you that bite necessary to pull of the grit of Chicago blues while the one-piece rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets offer an extremely effortless playing experience that places a premium on comfort. The hide-glued mahogany neck is responsible for this guitar’s supreme sustain and response that will make players feel as though they are one with the instrument. And let’s face it, if you’re going to feel that tight a bond with an inanimate object, it’s in your best interest to make sure that object remains safe on the road; the ES-335’s hardshell case will allow you to travel and gig without any unnecessary stress.
