OVERVIEW

The classic shape and bell-like tone of Gibson's ES series.

First introduced in the late '50s, the ES series became an instant rock classic, bringing the feel and look of an archtop to a generation of players who had grown up playing solid body guitars like the Les Paul. The ES-335, the first in the ES series, was an instant success. Now Epiphone introduces the ES-335 PRO - an instrument with its roots firmly planted in the classic era when Epiphone's Kalamazoo factory was producing rock's most legendary instruments.

Featuring an ES-style body with Alnico Classic PRO humbucker pickups, the new ES-335 PRO semi-hollowbody from Epiphone turns back the clock while breaking new ground in sound and style. Other classic features include a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for incredible sustain, Wilkinson vintage-style tuning machines, and a rosewood fretboard adorned with small block inlay. Case sold separately.

FEATURES
  • Arched maple top and back
  • 24.75" Scale set-in mahogany neck
  • Rosewood fretboard with small block inlay
  • 22 Medium jumbo frets
  • Alnico Classic Pro neck humbucker with coil-split
  • Alnico Classic Pro Plus bridge humbucker with coil-split
  • LockTone tune-o-matic bridge
  • LockTone stopbar tailpiece
  • Wilkinson vintage-style tuners
  • Case sold separately

Received my beautiful ES-335 in Natural finish from Musiciansfriend.com in an amazing fast shipping time. Was packaged beautifully. But the true beauty was the guitar I was lucky enough to pull out of the box! This thing just simply inspires you to play with how amazing it looks. The Natural finish is just a pleasure to look at at with its high gloss finish, yet still allowing all the beautilfull wood grain lines and swirls to peer through. The fret board was beautiful with the block inlays and this is one guitar where I can say the back of the guitar is actually just as beautiful as the front. The neck mohagany wood grain is just so warm and beautiful. But the amazing this is this baby sounds as great as it looks!

The alnico pro pups just give that great mellow blues/jazz tone but can also deliver a great growl for classic rock. The coil tap is a wonderful bonus to play with that allows you to get even more sounds out of this wonderful instrument. I have run this guitar for hours clean through my fender amp and with effects pedals and sounds amazing either way.But the best past of this guitar for me is the easy to play neck. The slim taper D design just fits my hand like a glove! The guitar has some size to it being a 335 but one expects that, and I love it. Tuners look vintage and are functional all at the same time.

The quality on the finish was amazing as well. I feel truly fortunate to have gotten such a great guitar. This one will be in my collection till I am long gone from this earth. If your on the fence and always wanted a 335 like myself, don't hesitate this wonderful limited edition offering from Epiphone delivers in EVERY way! Vintage tone, looks, playability. Get one and enjoy!

First guitar came with a shattered neck. Emily at customer service was great. I got the replacement quickly and the UPS return of the broken one was not bad. The inside Epiphone boxes looked more damaged than the outer Musician's Friend shippers. It looks like they might have been damaged coming from China and not from shipping to me. Second inside Epiphone box was damage also, but the guitar seems fine.
I didn't check poor craftsmanship because it plays well. Nice low action. Neck feels great to my hand. Only one string at one fret has some buzz. Hope it will play out or I'll have our local expert adjust it.
The only bad thing is the paint on the edge of the f-holes on both guitars looks like a 3 year old did it, very sloppy. Then they put a beautiful smooth hard clear coat over the top of the sloppy black paint. Even though I like the guitar and it is going to be a user, I can't give it more than 3 stars because of the lack of quality control by Epiphone. The rest of the fit and finish seems fine, so far.
My son, daughter and I have been playing it for over a week now and we all like it.

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition ES-335 PRO Electric Guitar:

      I ordered this guitar and when it arrived the headstock was cracked. Customer service was very easy to work with, they sent me a new one within a week. When I opened the new one I was initially very disappointed. The guitar was really in no condition to be sent off. Everyone has their preference, but the action was absurdly high. Intonation was terrible. The nut was also too high. I got it professionally set up and I fell in love with it. With a proper set up this thing plays very comfortably, and sounds fantastic. If you are ordering one be prepared to make adjustments.

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition ES-335 PRO Electric Guitar:

        I have been wanting a 335 for years. I finally bought this one on sale, and I'm glad I waited for the 335-pro. Right out of the box it was setup perfectly. It has a beautiful finish and a great tone plugged in or just playing unplugged. It also has more sustain than any other guitar I have played. My new favorite guitar. I'm glad I got one, they seem to be backordered now.

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition ES-335 PRO Electric Guitar:

            I received my Cherry Epiphone ES-335 Pro today and I have to say I was blown away by the workmanship of this guitar. The thing just oozes with quality. In fact, I had been so worried about receiving a defective copy (thanks to a couple of negative reviews), that I immediately scrutinized every inch of it. Well, I did find one very slight blemish -- about half the size of the tip of my pinky -- on the back. But it was underneath the paint, and only an eagle-eye like myself will ever notice it. But the rest of the guitar is just flawless.

            I'm not crazy about the D-shaped neck; I prefer a C shape. But I'm sure I will get used to it quickly. Also, the action appears to be a little high, but nothing I can't adjust myself.

            Unfortunately, I do not have an amp yet so I really can't report on the sound this thing produces.So that's why I have only given it four stars. But as far as hardware and cosmetics go, this thing is a beauty! I especially like the binding on the neck . . . it really makes this guitar look $$$ more than I spent on it.

            I should have an amp by next week and I will put the ES-335 through its paces.

                I decided to get one based on the reviews and a good experience with an inexpensive epi Jr. last year. It looks good, plays good and sounds good plugged in. The action was very good out of the box. The neck is on the thin side and easy to play. Seems good for a variety of styles. Seems like Epiphone has something to prove with this one. Hopefully they can keep the quality up.

                    I'll be concise...I own a Gibson Memphis 1963 ES-335TD, and I'd say that this hangs equally as good. Since receiving this guitar in Cherry, I bought one in Ebony and quickly sold the Gibson. Quality control has definitely improved!

                        My guitar arrived in mint condition, so I won that gamble. The ebony finish is beautiful. Epiphone created a beautiful tribute to the ES-335 with this Limited Edition. The small block fingerboard inlays and the green vintage style tuners are a nice touch. I do wish Epiphone would change the way they apply their logo to the pick guard. The tin foil logo on top of the pick guard looks cheap. I suggest they use a pick guard material that can be reverse engraved so the top surface remains smooth. The fit and finish of everything else on this guitar seems to be excellent. The tone sounds good. The volume and tone controls work fine. A sticker on the back of the tuning head assures customers that the guitar was 100% inspected and set-up in the USA by Epiphone. It was nearly in-tune when I pulled it out of the box. Over-all, I am very pleased with this guitar.

                          I had been looking at the Epiphone Dot for some time and when I saw the ES-335 Pro with the upgrades and read the reviews I decided to take a chance. (I normally like to hold something in my hands and look at it before I buy.) When I got it out of the packaging it was in great condition with no issues. I got the sunburst finish and it was flawless. Action was decent right out of the box and the guitar played well. After playing it for a couple of days I lowered the action just a bit more and got the intonation dialed in. I took the glued on E off the pickguard and put the Gibson style speed knobs on it and now that I have it to my liking I am very pleased with the guitar. This thing is so smooth It all but plays itsself. It may not be a Gibson but for my needs it fits the bill perfectly. If you're in the market for a nice archtop this is a great guitar for the price. Also, if you get the guitar do yourself a favor and get the Epi hardshell case. The guitar is definately worth keeping in a good case.

                          Factory intonation is very good. With a professional set up and better nut, this guitar will play perfectly. I always wanted a Gibson 335. This lets me have one at an amazing price. I did replace the Epiphone long pickguard with a Gibson 335 short pickguard which gives it a better look to my eye. I really like this guitar.

                          it has all the grit punch and creaminess of a real gibson es335
