Gibson / Es335 Custom Reissue / 2011 / Sunburst / Guitar

Just droped the price for a quick sale. It surely cant last long at this price.. 

This one owner beauty is in absolute pristine condition. I would have listed it as Mint but I did manage to find some slight peeling or peppering on one of the tuner's finish. This guitar has been loved and cared for over the nearly ten years of its life and is an investor or collectors piece or your new daily love affair! The Custom certificate and Case Candy add to the story this guitar tells and additionally adds to its value for now and into the long term.

The Gibson ES-335 has been in the hands of guitarists as diverse as Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, B. B. King and session legend, Larry Carlton (who has his own 335 Signature model). And of all the ES-335s Gibson has made, the one with the most magic is the 1959 Dot-Neck. With its arched top, f-holes and solid maple center block, the semi-hollow 335 has all the raw power of a solidbody, but with the refined elegance of a traditional Gibson archtop. The ES-335 is the perfect guitar for practically any musical setting. It's as perfect a fit for jazz and fusion as it is for blues, hard rock and beyond. The transition from melodic to as hard as you want is seamless and kind of surprising. Really versatile is an understatement!

Gibson ES-335 Dot at a Glance:
  • Semi-hollowbody design with maple top, back and sides in Ebony finish with single-ply cream binding
  • 1960 Slim Taper mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and pearloid dot inlays
  • Two '57 Classic Humbuckers
A Very Special Reissue 335

The first ES-335s that rolled off the Gibson production line have truly achieved legendary status. Maybe it's the semi-hollowbody design, the sound of its two humbucking pickups or just the simple elegance of the pearloid dot inlays. Whatever it is, it's made the original 1950s ES-335s among the most sought-after guitars among collectors who are often happy to pay astronomical prices for instruments in good condition. Odds of even finding a dot neck 335 from the 1950s today are almost zero. The next best thing is to get your hands on this ES-335. It has the looks, the sound and the star power of the real thing. This one is in an Ebony finish with single-ply cream binding and nickel hardware.

The 1959 ES-335's neck profile is known as the 1960 "slim taper" neck profile and has the combination of a fast-playing mahogany neck and the warmth of a rosewood fingerboard with two '57 Classic Humbuckers Onboard

Most players agree that the '57 PAF (Patent Applied For) humbuckers are as good as it gets when you're talking about tone. It's got it all: Complex midrange, punchy lows and a smooth top end that won't make your teeth hurt. If you're looking for a pickup that starts out clean and can really smoke when your amp is on 11, well then, this just might be nirvana!
