The Gibson ES-335 in Vintage Burst for 2020 features a number of classic touches that have made the Gibson ES-335 a staple of the electric guitar world since its introduction in 1958. A Rounded C Neck profile, a brand new set of calibrated pickups, an aluminum tailpiece, and hand-rolled fretboard edges are just a few of the touches making this version an instant classic.
The Gibson ES-335 DOT is the cornerstone of the Gibson ES line-up. From its inaugural appearance in 1958, the Gibson ES-335 set an unmatched standard. The Pearloid dot inlay rosewood fingerboard on a hand-rolled Rounded "C" mahogany neck remind players where it all started. Gibson's Calibrated T-Type humbucking pickups are paired with our hand-wired control assembly. The result is that versatile Gibson ES tone that players have craved for over 60 years. Tuning stability and precise intonation are provided by the Vintage Deluxe tuners with Keystone buttons, paired with lightweight Aluminum ABR-1 bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece, anchored by steel thumb-wheels and tailpiece studs.
