Overview

An exquisite vintage-inspired semi-hollow crafted for timeless tone.

The Gibson Custom 1959 ES-335 Reissue VOS Limited-Edition Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar celebrates one of the most iconic guitars in rock history. This exacting recreation captures all the nuances that made original '59 ES-335s prized instruments for players from blues to rock. With its semi-hollow maple body and mahogany neck, the ES-335 Reissue channels that legendary Gibson tone—rich lows, articulate mids and brilliant highs. It's a guitar equally suited for ringing chords or wailing leads.

Vintage Tonewood Combination Hits the Sweet Spot

Much of the ES-335's magic comes from its semi-hollow maple body with mahogany centerpiece. This classic tonewood pairing delivers the ideal balance of warmth and snap. The maple's brightness enhances presence and articulation, while the mahogany brings warmth and depth to chord work. The slim mahogany neck's long tenon extends deep into the body, increasing resonance for more sustain. Whether you're playing intricate jazz lines or crunchy rock rhythms, this guitar's tone hits the sweet spot.

Rosewood 'Board Provides Vintage Vibe and Playability

The foundation for the ES-335's smooth playability is its rosewood fingerboard. This premium material lends vintage character while providing enhanced clarity and articulation. Its ultrasmooth surface lets your fingers effortlessly flow across the compound radius for chording or soloing. And those iconic trapezoid inlays are a timeless visual touch. From the first note, this guitar's vibe takes you back to a bygone era of tone.

Burstbucker Pickups Nail Those Classic Tones

To accurately recreate the ES-335's legendary voicing, Gibson turned to their prized Burstbucker humbuckers. The slightly overwound pickups have the perfect blend of warmth and bite. The neck pickup's throaty growl speaks volumes for leads and blues work. While the bridge pickup cuts through any mix with singing sustain and grit. Together, they produce everything from purring cleans to wailing overdrive with vintage-approved tone.

Nitro Finish Enhances Tone and Vintage Mojo

Completing the vintage-accurate package is Gibson's nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Sprayed skilfully by their expert craftspeople, the nitro finish allows the semi-hollow body to breathe and resonate freely. It also ages and wears in a distinctive way that only enhances the ES-335's mojo over time. Combined with the reissue's precisely recreated VOS (Vintage Original Spec) details, every nuance works together to conjure the magic of those priceless '59 originals.

The Gibson Custom 1959 ES-335 Reissue VOS Limited-Edition Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar provides an incredibly faithful recreation of one of the most revered electric guitars ever made. From its tone and playability to its vintage looks, this instrument will inspire you with the spirit of rock's golden era.
