A New Take On a Timeless TraditionThe Gibson ES-335 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 reminds players where it all started. The body's maple center block helps keep feedback at bay while also improving sustain. What makes this ES-335 a bit different is the pickups. Instead of humbucking pickups, it is equipped with a pair of P-90 single coils for a distinctive tone you won't find in any other 335. The P-90's are paired with our hand-wired control assembly, complete with Orange Drop® capacitors. The result is a new take on 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 Tune-O-Matic™ bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece. A hardshell case is included.
P-90 Single Coil Pickup
First introduced in the early 1950s, Gibson's legendary P90 single coil pickup produced a raw powerful tone that helped define the blues and rock and roll in their formative years. Today, the P90's traditional combination of high output and brilliant tone is still considered a favorite among many top musicians. Known by such familiar nicknames as the "Soapbar" and the "Cobalt," the P90 still cuts through any type of music, all while displaying amazing tonal sensitivity for everything from blues and rock to mellow jazz riffs. It's perfect as a vintage replacement, and features vintage, braided two-conductor wiring. It's also fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of unwanted microphonic feedback.
