    Two '57 humbuckers give it miles of rock attitude!

    Guitar Player magazine said, "The ES-135 is a super-versatile ax that fuses the ES-175 traits with aspects of the semi-acoustic ES-335. The result is relentless sustain and slap-your-face presence, the ES-135's gargantuan tones are as easy to ignore as a punch in the gut."

    Fantastic Guitar

    By Rockn2theBlues

    from Peoria, Arizona

    I received my Epiphone ES-135 in Blue Burst 3 days ago. It?s much more impressive looking in person than in the picture.I own several guitars and have been playing since the late 60?s but I did not have a Semi-Hollow Body guitar until now. I?ve always wanted one and now I have one. This is my second Epiphone so I didn?t have any problem buying an Epiphone. I?m convinced the quality they put out is every bit as good as Gibson. Plus I will not spend the money that Gibson wants for guitars. I don?t believe American Quality is any better than foreign quality. The 57 humbucker?s have a sticker on them that says they are made in the USA. And after plugging in and playing I have to say, these pick-ups are awesome. I don?t know if it?s the combination of Semi-Hollow Body and the 57 humbuckers or if it?s just the 57?s, but they sound fantastic clean or dirty. There is a big difference between these and the humbuckers on my other guitars. It just has such a full sound. I heard it right away after plugging in with the same settings as my other guitars. This guitar plays very easy. Great fret work, very smooth. The set up was just right out of the box. Nice low action. I think the people that set these things up in the factory did a great job.

    Better than it looks here

    By Hazy31184

    from Silver Spring, MD

    I just got my ES-135 yesterday and I must say that it is the best guitar I've had so far.I own an Epi-SG '66, Epi-LP Standard Plus Top, and a Squire Strat, so it didn't have much to compete with, but I've played Gibsons that don't handle this well.The '57 Humbuckers sound amazing through my 15W amp and everything about this axeis wonderful! They're alot clearer than anything on my other guitars and the pots allow for a WIDE variety of tones!The finish you see here doesn't really do it justice. It's not a flame maple top or anything, but you can see the detail of the maple top through the blue. They say that the top is a laminate maple, but when I look, I can't find any evidence that it's laminate. It looks like one solid piece, no wings, no laminate. The frets aren't sharp and play smooth as snot, the tuners have stayed faithful to their roles as tuners, and the rest of the hardware is beautiful!I don't know what a "chromyte" block is, but the solid block for sustain/sturdiness is made out of some kind of wood... chromite is not a metallic substance.Overall, I'd say that if I had seen this thing in the shops (which I haven't) I would've bought one a long time ago.Definitely the best bang for the buck!

    This thing is ear candy

    By Ted-zoX80

    from New Hampshire

    This guitar is certainly a pleasure too look at, and play. The sustain is incredible, and the tone is just what the doctor ordered. Having started playing in 1965, a lot of guitars have come and gone over the years, but this one will stay until they have to pry my fingers off from it. It just sounds that good, and it was set up and ready to play out of the box. This certainly will be a classic value.

    ES-135 Scoop

    By ThinPickens

    from Gloucester, VA

    I was disappointed with this guitar at first sight and was going to send it back. The more I played it the more that changed. I was not pleased with one thing that really bugged me which was that when I looked at the finish under light I could see all kinds of hills and valleys in the top as if the final sanding was done by a blind man with a belt sander. The finish over that and the color and everything else was fine but you could see through it to this mess underneath. Bottom line though, I end up playing the heck out of this guitar and it stays in tune like a dream with the grover tuners. Also, the pickups make this guitar one of the most versatile I've had. It can work for Jazz, Blues, Country, Hard Rock, Metal. If you have even a small cheap effects pedal of some kind this guitar can shine on most any program ... clean to nasty.Its well balanced has a good feel to it and seems to be very good quality built other than what I stated earlier. Was set-up great right out of the box. The more I play it the more I like it. Its a keeper!

    I nearly wet myself.....

    By gasmanguitarist

    from Missouri

    .....when I plugged this baby in! Holy cow! What great tone. Those '57 buckers sound awesome. They make the guitar worth every penny right there. The finish is good too. The color is beautiful, and the body is a nice size. The action was set nicely for me, so no complaints there. I couldn't imagine owning any other semi-hollow body ever again. Epi needs to make this one a staple, and not just a limited edition.
