Gibson 335-S Solidbody Electric Guitar - Vintage Sunburst
Where do you go if you dig the look, vibe, and tone of Gibson‘s legendary ES–335, but need a smaller, sleeker, solidbody guitar for your live and studio needs? You grab a new 335–S from Gibson USA, naturally! Built with the look and feel of the original semi–hollow ES–335, and using solid stocks of the same tonewood employed in that thinline‘s laminated body and sides, the 335–S is a fully solid electric, with all the advantages in tone and performance that such designs have to offer. Dressed in your choice of gorgeous nitrocellulose Vintage Sunburst or Silverburst finish with "reverse–zebra–striped" humbucking pickups and designed as a more compact version of the traditional "Mickey Mouse eared" double–cutaway ES–335, with all of the superb upper–fret access that that model has to offer, the 335–S is a supremely powerful performer that knows no bounds of playing style or musical genre. In short, it kicks out solid tone wherever you point it.
To make it a true cousin of the original semi–hollow ES–335, Gibson builds the 335–S with a solid Grade–A maple body. A Grade–A maple neck is glued in, and carved in a comfortably rounded profile that measures .818" at the 1st fret and .963" at the 12th, with a Granadillo fingerboard that carries 22 medium–jumbo frets. Decorative touches are minimal, although tasteful dot position inlays link it to the first ES–335s of 1958–‘60. A PLEK–cut Corian nut complements the solid and sustainful pairing of a Tune–o–matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, while classic kidney button Grover tuners round off the smooth and efficient hardware selection up top.
