Expert Review

Comfort is one of the first ways that the Gibson 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue delivers on its promise to uphold the legacy of one of the best electric guitars of the 50s. With a one-piece rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets, players have the space and smoothness to really play this thing without hitting any snags or limitations while in the heat of the moment.

Equally important to this guitar’s place amongst its peers are the dual f-holes that adorn the hollow side wings of the instrument. This is where the warm sustain that sings like an acoustic instrument comes from. The hide-glued mahogany neck is also a significant factor in the sustain that the ES-335 provides.

Of course, the custom bucker pickups also play a hand in the sounds that this guitar can conjure here we have a tone that is distinctly vintage, and can easily switch between clean tones and more driven, gritty offerings, as well. A hardshell case is also a nice addition to this guitar; after all, with something this nice, you need some sort of assurance that it’s okay to take it out of the house.Rating: 4/5
