What we say:
Gibson’s new 2019 range of instruments is shaping up to be a classic year for electric guitars and basses. Doing away with the more outlandish experiments of recent years, Gibson have delivered a collection that gives guitar players everything they want!
The range is populated by iconic designs, built with all of the features and hardware choices that make sense on heritage-style instruments, in finishes that are well-regarded player favourites. It’s time to get excited about Gibson more than ever!
The ES-335 is a cornerstone of the Gibson guitar empire. Known as one of the most versatile electric guitar models ever, the appeal of the 335 is undiminished after over 6 decades. Celebrated as a Blues and Jazz machine, the ES-335 can ably handle Hard Rock, Indie, Experimental, Lo-fi and Fusion styles too.
Gibson’s 2019 version of this classic follows the ethos of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ relative to the rest of the range. The semi-hollow body is made in the time-honoured fashion with a 3-ply mix of Maple and Poplar, with a solid Maple centre block.
This Antique Faded Cherry finish is simply the correct choice of colour for this guitar: from Chuck Berry to Marty McFly, the 335 has always looked its best when painted in Cherry nitrocellulose!
The neck is made using Quartersawn Mahogany for increased strength and stability. A Rounded C profile brings a feel that is substantial without being at all clubby, and the Rosewood fretboard has rolled edges for an instantly comfortable left-hand feel.
A pair of 57 Classic humbuckers (a ‘Plus’ model at the bridge) supply tones that are as close to PAF-like perfection as any we’ve heard. Quality Orange Drop capacitors and Grover tuners round off a spec that is impressive and worthy of the legend that is the Gibson ES-335.
