What we say:

At A Glance

Gibson Custom Shop have spent a year profiling original models in order to accurate produce this 1961 ES-335 Reissue. The expert craftspeople at Gibson Custom Shop have paid attention to every little detail to ensure that this instrument would do justice to the time period. From vintage replica parts to recreated contours, it all comes together with excellence. The Custombucker pickups sound warm and inviting, making it very enjoyable to play. The '61 Skinny C shape is another example of the attention to detail. This is a great opportunity to own a guitar made by some of the best luthiers out there.

Features We Love:

Custombucker Alnico III Pickups

Gibson have not stopped at the aesthetics but have made sure that the pickups here also perform to the same high standard as the guitar itself. Taking influence from PAF tones, they offer a warm, well balanced and full sound. This means they handle clean tones just as well as when you apply some gain.

Kluson Single Line Tuners

Taking care of pitch accuracy, these do a great job of getting you in tune quickly and keeping you there. They also fit with the 50s vibe and look completely at home.

Gibson Custom Shop Quality

Gibson Custom Shop is known for their attention to detail and finesse, both of which are present here in abundance. From the authentic '61 neck profile to the hide glue fit, these tiny elements come together to form an accurate recreation of a vintage guitar but without any of the complications that come with an instrument of significant age.
