History speaks for itself. Right from its introduction in 1958 as the world's first semi-hollowbody electric guitar, the Gibson Custom ES-335 has been a mainstay of players eager to balance the gorgeous, round, mellow tones perfect for jazz and blues with the edge and sustain of a full-blooded solidbody.
This Custom Shop 1959 ES-335 retains its classic proportions: 16-1/2" wide, 20" long, and 1-3/4" deep. The neck is one-piece mahogany beneath a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid inlays and a single-ply binding. Additionally, there's single-ply binding on the top and back.
All hardware is nickel, and there's a classic ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge with a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece. Neck scale length is 24-3/4" with a 1-11/16" nut width. Satin finish models have vintage-style, tulip-shaped tuners, while figured and plain tops come with Kluson kidney-shaped tuners. All Custom Shop ES-335s have powerful '57 Classic humbucking pickups, 2 volume pots, 2 tone pots, and a 3-way pickup selector switch. They are strung with Gibson Brite Wire .010 strings and come safely nestled in a black levant case.

Comments about Gibson 1959 ES-335 Reissue Gloss Electric Guitar:
A friend of mine owns this thing. Could not be a better guitar. The tone is FLAWLESS. It looks AMAZING. The contrast between the neck and body will blow you away. Paired with a vibrolux, plexi, or a twin reverb this thing sings. If you got the capital, get this guitar. I like it better than any guitar we can choose from: Relic Strat, '55 RI Les Paul, and '58 RI Les Paul. This thing is better.
