OVERVIEW

The Gibson 59 ES-335 Lightly Aged Finish features a '50's rounded-profile neck, 2 Custom Gibson humbucking pickups, 3-way switch, coil-tap, and the beautiful VOS finish treatment.

With the addition of neck binding, the 1959 model is considered by players to be the ES-335 in its most desirable form. This perfect recreation offers the same 3-ply body and design as its predecessor and features MHS humbuckers, a bound rosewood fretboard, an ABR-1 bridge with stopbar tailpiece and Kluson tuners. The finish has been given Gibson's VOS treatment, which translates into tastefully aged. It's like getting an instrument that's been carefully played and stored for years. The finish is thinner and has a certain patine, while the binding is yellowed just the right amount.

FEATURES
  • Semi-hollow body, Maple top, back and sides
  • Set-in Mahogany neck, '50's rounded profile, Rosewood fingerboard
  • 2 Custom Gibson humbucking pickups, 3-way switch, coil-tap
  • Tune-o-matic bridge, Stopbar tailpiece, Kluson tuners, Chrome hardware

You've always wanted a great ES335 - with the 59 ES-335 Lightly Aged Finish model, you'll have a vintage sounding and looking guitar, yet in pristine condition. Order today.
