Expert Review

The ES-335 is the world’s first commercial thin line archtop semi-acoustic electric guitar. The Dot Reissue of this instrument takes all of the classic sounds of its original incarnation and adds in some much welcomed modern improvements to the design and sound. Custom bucker pickups provide a distinct bite that still maintains a vintage feel, which is perfect for playing a gritty style of music such as Texas blues. The one-piece rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets ensure that you’ll be able to comfortably maneuver up and down the neck for an extremely smooth playing experience.

What makes this guitar stand out immediately to the eye is the f-holes on the hollow side wings of the instrument, allowing for an undeniable sustain and warmth usually only attainable through the use of a hollowbody guitar. Meanwhile, a hide-glued mahogany neck also provides great sustain and response, which only enhances the personal touch that blues riffs and licks require; after all, the spirit of any great blues musician comes from the player’s fingers. Finally, a hardshell case will put your mind at ease when you take this classic looking and sounding instrument out of the house and on the road with you.Rating: 4/5
