Epiphone

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

I got this guitar in the cherry color and waited for about a month because it was on backorder. so glad I waited. Amazing sound. Took it in for some slight adjustment and just to get it set up, the guys at the shop were impressed. They said they barely had to do anything to it. This guitar is perfect for leading worship music and eliminates the need most of the time to switch to an acoustic guitar because this thing sounds beautiful clean!

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.

    Pickups and intonation needed much adjustment but works well after a little time spent on that.

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

    Unless you make a good living playing, the gibson version is not worth the extra four digits.
    Good quality build . The alinco pro pickups have a great vintage sound .
    I play jazz and blues. It's a perfect guitar for me. Finish had a couple small flaws but for the price it's prob one of the best 400.00 guitars I've owned . Take this over a strat any day.
    Coil split is nice. Single mode does humm . But that's what single p/u do .
    Customer service is awesome at MF as well. This is not my first guitar from them and it won't be my last

        Excellent for the money. Flawless guitar, beautiful cherry finish. Frets had a slightly coarse finish so I polished them, but that's a nit-pick. After a quick set-up, plays very well. Pickups sound great! I usually swap them on import guitars, no need here. I won't use coil tap much, but it works well. highly recommend even at double the price.

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

          I checked every square millimeter of the finish on this guitar and it is perfect everywhere. All frets were smoothly finished. The setup was spot on to play true and to my preference. Tuners have high ratios for precision tuning. Pickups sound good in humbucker and single coil settings. Can get a lot of variations of sound with all combinations. Neck has a good feel. Guitar has a good balance on a strap. I love this guitar. It is the sixth I have and is my first Epiphone and I am satisfied I made a good choice. I would recommend it to beginners as well as serious professional players.

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

              I've owned/own numerous Gibson and Epiphone Les Pauls, Fender strats and teles, Taylors and Martins, and several archtops over the years but always wanted a 335. I had to wait two months for this limited edition 335 Pro and am I glad I did.
              Fit and Finish is flawless, the neck is the best I've seen on any guitar and came with a perfectly adjusted tension rod. The fret heights were spot on all the way up and down the neck. Yes, I needed to lower the bridge a bit, treat the ebony frets to some lemon oil and adjust the intonation. If you don't know how to do this it's easy to learn or take to a luthier for an inexpensive set up. After an hours work I had a truly professional quality axe with a stunning finish and deep rich jazz tones when played without pedals through my Fender Deluxe. I couldn't be happier with the pickups. The switches and knobs are solid. The frets could use a little polishing if you want to be ultra picky, but I'm guessing they'll get there with a few weeks of playing.
              Honestly, I don't know why in the world Gibson would want to compete with themselves like this, but I am thrilled that they made this guitar!

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

              I don't like to rate instruments based on their price tag or value, so my thoughts on this guitar are solely based on the the instrument itself-and all around this is a great guitar.

              The pickups sound great. Coil splitting functions very well, get great single coil tones. The cleans are fantastic as expected by the style of guitar, but it also handles distortion very well. Crunchy tube breakup sounds amazing and that's where I usually will be tone-wise while holding this instrument, but I have even gotten solid metal/hardcore tones out of this guitar just for fun.

              Came with a great set-up from the factory and was actually in tune when I received the box. Packaging was great. I did take it in to my pro tech just for a set up/adjustment and he was blown away that I only payed the amount I did. He actually didn't need to do much. The only problem was the fret's needed a good polishing and the neck actually needed a little more relief for my play-style. I'm not used to such a large guitar and the neck is pretty thick, but honestly those are features that make this beast what it is!

              Aesthetically this guitar is beautiful, I got the vintage sunburst and am very pleased with the look. The only gripe I have is the green "vintage style" tuners. Green older looking tuners don't match the shiny brand newness of the rest of the guitar. I'll definitely be putting Grovers on it and also a bone nut. The G string kind of pinches in the nut, but again I will be replacing the nut regardless.

              Great guitar all around. I love it. Buy it.

                Solid all around guitar. Excellent for more than just blues and classic rock. With these pickups even Metallica type music sounds awesome. Nice full sound. Plenty of low end growl with good mids. Coil splitting adds to the versatility of the guitar. Can get a nice single coil sound. I have owned it for about 4 months now and have had no mechanical issues. Nothing has broke etc. Came from the factory with a good setup. I have the action low and get no fretbuzz. A solid guitar that can rival Gibsons version as I have both so can speak from experience. Get this guitar!

                I knew what I was getting, a nice cheap 335. The ebony finish is thick and shinny, the neck is a little chunky and that's OK. There is a wowwie in the neck at the 17th fret where I think they over sanded the binding. It doesn't affect the playability. Tone is decent. The set up was terrible! The strings at the nut were like a mountain range, up and down. Had to fill some and file some. Work the bridge and fix the intonation. It was so bad I had to send it out to a professional. Way beyond my limited capabilities, frets needed dressing at the ends and were uneven across the fret board. Tweak the truss rod, added new strings and its way better. I like it! Its fun to play and even with the added price of the set up, still a great deal. Although I had to change the Name from ES-335 Pro to Semi Pro.

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

                  I really liked the look of this guitar and did not notice any quality flaws in paint or frets or noisy electronics.

                  The neck was quite thick, but not necessarily uncomfortable, but I think I prefer a slim taper neck and P 90s for their clarity. I could not get any tones I liked out these pickups, which, by the way, seemed to be low output. Perhaps it is a better "chorder" but I did not find it too useful for single note leads. I used to own a Gibson ES 335, which had its problems, but overall it was a versatile guitar that felt more substantial than this Epiphone. That guitar got burned up in a fire and I still miss it, so maybe that's created unreal expectations in me, but I have also owned my share of budget guitars and this one epitomizes it's price point. It's not exactly cheap--in fact it's decently (if modestly) appointed--but the coil taps seemed gimmicky and the tuners only appear to be like the Gibson "tulips" but they're not. The nut seemed high and not cut quite well and the hardware seemed cheap too. I have never been a fan of the mini top hat knobs, either (Gibson uses these, too, but in my opinion they look too small).

                  Overall, if you like the look, then this is a project guitar for those who have some nice humbuckers, but then you might as well buy a used Dot and do the upgrades on that. Or, if you can tolerate the hum, get a Casino, which I still really like after all these years.
