A compact semi-hollow masterpiece blending comfort and refined tone.

The Gibson Custom CS-336 Figured Semi-Hollow electric guitar embodies the Custom Shop's dedication to meticulous craftsmanship and refined playability. Inspired by the iconic ES-335, this scaled-down semi-hollow body delivers the rich, articulate tone that made its predecessor a legend, while enhancing playing comfort for modern guitarists. Exuding class and sophistication, the CS-336 Figured is an instrument for discerning musicians seeking an heirloom-quality guitar that sounds as impeccable as it looks.

A Tonally Carved Design for Unrivaled Resonance

At the heart of the CS-336 Figured lies Gibson's tonally carved construction, expertly voicing this semi-hollow body for unparalleled resonance and sustain. A solid mahogany back and sides pair with a carved, bookmatched figured maple top, while the center block is integrated seamlessly into the top and back. This design allows the guitar to ring out with superb harmonic richness while reducing undesirable feedback at higher volumes. Whether you're coaxing nuanced melodies or unleashing searing leads, the tonally carved body translates every last nuance with stunning clarity.

A Scaled-Down Profile for Enhanced Playability

While capturing the iconic ES-335 voice, the CS-336 Figured boasts a scaled-down body size that enhances playing comfort without sacrificing tone. The slightly reduced dimensions make it easier to reach all positions on the neck, ensuring your fretting hand can explore the entire fingerboard effortlessly. You'll appreciate the improved balance and lightweight feel as you dig into extended performances. From its supremely playable neck profile to its resonant carved body, every aspect of the CS-336 Figured has been optimized for an unparalleled playing experience.

Stunning Figured Maple Top Elevates The Aesthetic

Elevating the CS-336 Figured's elegant aesthetic is the gorgeous bookmatched figured maple top, meticulously carved and finished in nitrocellulose lacquer for a rich, vintage-inspired appearance. The striking figuring creates an undeniable visual impact, with the unique grain patterns seeming to shift and dance under stage lights. This premium top wood not only adds eye-catching appeal but enhances the guitar's tone with its focused midrange punch and articulate highs. From the moment you lay eyes on the CS-336 Figured, you'll be drawn in by its museum-worthy craftsmanship and jaw-dropping beauty.

Premium Appointments and Deluxe Hardshell Case

As a Custom Shop creation, the CS-336 Figured is adorned with premium appointments befitting an heirloom-quality instrument. The carved maple neck boasts an inviting '60s-style rounded profile, complemented by a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard adorned with trapezoid inlays. Gold hardware adds an elegant touch, from the tune-o-matic bridge to the period-correct Klusons. This guitar arrives ready for the stage or studio in a deluxe hardshell case, safeguarding your investment while facilitating easy transport.
